Certainty in Uncertain Times

Many of you are people who turn to the Bible in uncertain times. For some others the Bible is somewhat unknown. Yet you all know it to be a source of wise guidance. Right now, when we are surrounded by alarming, irrational, fear-based behaviour it seems wise indeed to turn to the steady, settling strength of the Bible. The Bible is full of songs. The original music isn’t recorded, only the lyrics. In this week’s editorial the best thing I can do is let you read one of the most famous of these Bible songs; Psalm 23. It is pasted below. I hope you find it comforting; a counterbalance to the clamorous cacophony. Read it slowly. Picture the words as if it is you; yes, you yourself in the song, with God as your Guardian. Let yourself be restored by Psalm 23. - David Gleeson, Principal The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

Student Leaders Paving the Way

Today our student leaders made a fantastic welcome gesture to our year sevens. Filling the green with picnic blankets, lawn games, kind messages, hash tags on blackboards and balloons in college colours, the student senate hosted a lunch time ‘Welcome to Secondary’ picnic for our three new classes of year sevens. Our College captain, Ravleen Kaur, began by welcoming the students and underlining the college value of community, inviting all to ‘belong’. This was followed by an invitation to enjoy their lunch and a game while mingling with each other and the senior students. Finishing up with a super duper ice block to cool down with, after their fun on the green. Such an effort went into a beautiful presentation of the space to carry a genuine welcome message, and on days like today, I feel very privileged to walk alongside this generation. Bonnie Lang, Head of Pastoral Care ...

Welcome to the 2020 School Year

School starts this week; I am excited. School is sensational! It’s not the buildings or sports fields that are exciting, it’s not the labs or classrooms, nor the pathways and playgrounds. All these places are lifeless until the students and staff return and revive the whole campus. As I write this the teachers are coming back on campus. There’s been clearing, cleaning, painting and preparing going on throughout the places and spaces that will be hubs of life and learning. Teachers are meeting; planning their approach, planning to be unified, planning to bring out excellence in their learners. Our teachers are passionate people with a deep respect for schooling and the learning process. Our teachers look to their education-leaders; the Year Level Coordinators, Curriculum Advisors, and Faculty Team Leaders; experienced educators who now not only teach students, but who guide teachers in doing the same. The Coordinators in turn look to their Department Heads. The Heads of Primary and Secondary, and the Head of Teaching and Learning. These are remarkable educators with rich teaching experience themselves, wonderfully equipped to lead their teams of coordinators and teachers. All this experience and structure creates a sound, stable, steadfast foundation for your children’s learning. Parents choose this school for all sorts of reasons, and one of those reasons is the strength of the structure that our teachers and education-leaders provide. May the Lord bless your entire family through 2020 as you partner with Melton Christian College

Christmas is Coming

Christmas is coming; it’s always so exciting! Of course, as a Christian school we LOVE Christmas. Ok, maybe it is a bit overcommercialised in the shops, but we don’t live in the shops; we create our own Christmas in our homes and in our hearts. Christmas food is wonderful, the traditions are beautiful, and the convention of gift-giving reminds us of Jesus who came as a baby and gave Himself as a gift for us. Christmas symbols are significant too. They have wonderful meanings and often those meanings are interwoven. For example, there are several symbols in our Christmas trees. We choose an evergreen conifer. Many people still go to the trouble of getting a real pine tree; ah, the whole house smells beautiful with that pine-aroma wafting through. Even in Aussie heat, the evergreenness of a conifer reminds us of everlasting life because of Christ. On top of our tree we balance a star or an angel. All Christmas stars represent that special star of the first Christmas at Bethlehem. That first Christmas star showed the wise ones how to find their way to Jesus. Our Christmas stars also symbolize that the baby Jesus came because He is the light of the world and is a shining hope to all people. Angels on our Christmas trees represent God’s messengers. Angels appeared to people when the Saviour was born, telling them to hurry and meet the miracle baby. From our team of staff at

Bringing Learning to Life in Year 9

Mr Robert Keenan, a Melton Christian College parent, addressed the students on his experiences as a former Police officer (RUC) in Belfast during ‘The Troubles’ of the 1970’s. This was a time where there was great division and conflict in Northern Ireland as a result of political and religious beliefs. Mr. Keenan shared with the cohort obstacles that he and his family faced in a time of terror and conflict.  The talk consolidated our current unit of study in Year 9 English which is Conformity vs Individuality. It was a real privilege hearing his journey and making character and plot connections with the play Across the Barricades by Joan Lingard. It is a rare opportunity for students to meet members of their own community who would have lived and served during a historical time period depicted in one of their literary texts.  Mr. Dionysiou, Secondary English Teacher It was a great opportunity for us to meet someone who lived during the very difficult Troubles and then relate it back to our text study. Elizabeth Conde, Year 9 Student It was so courageous of Mr Keenan to share his experiences with us. Jason Toor, Year 9 Student War and conflict impacts those involved in so many ways. The talk enabled us to think about conflicts around the world and make connections to our own families and their journeys. Melody Ho¸ Year 9 Student I was intrigued listening to his story and making real life connections to the text. Shelby
