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

Celebrating Multicultural Day

The whole College was abuzz with activity and vibrant costumes last week as we celebrated the many nationalities of our students and families.  Run over two days for Primary and Secondary students, Multicultural Day has grown year by year as the students and staff share their heritage through classroom study and special incursions. The event is a wonderful expression of how unique God has made each of us, and how we all come together to be part of one community. The primary classes each chose a country of interest to study, with some classes integrating the country into all their classes from the start of term 3. Each class set up a display that included facts about their country such as traditional food, language, population, capital city and interesting facts. The students could dress up from any country on Multicultural Day and bring in a dish of any cuisine. Each student was given a passport which included a page from each country in primary and classes travelled through each classroom during each session answering questions in the passport that were studied. If students could answer the series of questions related to that country, they received a stamp. Classes spent a session sharing information about either their costume or food so that others could understand what it was or where the costume was from. Primary students also spent one session in a traditional Chinese dance and arts incursion. They learnt a few words in Chinese and watched a few basic dance

A Magical Night with Aladdin JR

We entered the auditorium with feelings of excitement and anticipation, looking forward to see how this year's cast and crew were going to entertain and charm us with for the evening. Welcomed by the unmistakable aroma of freshly popped corn seeping through the air and hypnotised by the mystical lamp encased in glass we strolled down memory lane admiring by the chronologically placed, life size posters of the musicals gone by.  Reminiscing about every performance we had attended together, and how each presentation had improved on the next. We were certain that this was going to be an extra special event! Feeling like we were in Broadway, we walked the red carpet to our excellent seats, impatiently waiting for the performance to begin. From the moment the lights were dimmed and the overture began we were transported to the mystical city of Agrabah.The Arabian palace and the glorious costumes were magnificent. The ever rotating props and sets, seamlessly moving on and off the stage stealthily by the silent behind the scenes heroes were amazing. Then there were the impressive lights and even a magical Genie lamp that mysteriously exuded smoked on cue! There was excellent sound clarity and spectacular digitally projected backdrops that enhanced the whole production, allowing the students talents to shine to their full potential.  That brings us to the real stars of the show, the students! The pride on their faces when they executed their humorous lines perfectly, portrayed their dramatic roles seriously
