A message from the SLC

Week 5, Term 4 done and dusted!

We are already at this term’s midpoint and the year’s end. A lot has occurred in the previous weeks, most notably, the completion of the HSC by the 2018 cohort and the running of Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) Open Night. With all that has happened, there is still much to anticipate in the upcoming weeks. These remaining few weeks will see this term’s J-Walk and the Carey Christmas Fair!

The exciting Carey Christmas Fair is taking place on the Saturday, 24th of November from 12 pm. We encourage all community, family and friends to join us on this fantastic occasion that will transform the school into a fun display of rides, market and food stalls (with some other surprises as well!). With over 20 rides available for all ages, a vast assortment of market and food stalls, and several school tours, the day will conclude with an evening of Christmas Carols. Armbands for unlimited rides access are now available for pre purchase via Munch Monitor, the Uniform Shop or Try Booking for only $25 each, or $35 on the day. We hope to see you all there and encourage you all to participate and/or volunteer in this fellowship event.

With the 2018 HSC recently coming to a close, we see the ending of a long thirteen-year Education journey, taken by the class of 2018. We, on behalf of the SLC, would like to congratulate our former WCCS students, on the completion of their schooling and wish them well as they await their results.

Congratulations must also be extended to our CAPA department on the execution of another successful Open Night. The night displayed the great deal of talent and creativity present within the students in our community. We encourage those who took part in the night to persevere in furthering their wide array of gifts and talents.

Furthermore, this term’s J-walk will be held during lunchtime on Thursday, 29th of November. All students are invited to attend J-walk, in which they may share and discuss some wisdom and insight into the word of God and the nature of Christianity. The topic of discussion for this J-walk will be the ‘How do you deal with doubt?’, specifically, doubt in relation to one’s faith. It is an important issue and one we’re sure that many face, especially amongst our youth. Although assurance in one’s faith may never be certain in an increasingly modernised world, we hope that this J-Walk may illuminate and spark a conversation to inspire our fellow students to get thinking.

Linking with the topic of J-Walk we would like to leave you all with the following two verses, encouraging those in times of doubt:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

May God bring you all on a path closer to him.

In Christ,
