From the SLC

As we approach the halfway point of Term 3, there have been some exciting things that have happened and there are more occurring soon. 

The CAPA HSC showcase ran on Tuesday the 11th of August during and after lunch. Although it looked quite different to previous years due to necessary health changes, it was a great afternoon highlighting the talent and hard work of the Year 12s. There were a number of spectacular artworks on display which the Year 12s have been working on all year. The concert aspect involved various Drama, Dance and Music performances – each amazing the audience with their scope of talent. It was a great opportunity for the school community to appreciate and admire the hard work that each of the CAPA HSC students have put into their work.

Year 12 began their HSC trial examinations this week which will continue into Week 5. This is a big step in their preparation for their final exams. We ask that you keep the Year 12 students in your prayers as they go through this challenging time and encourage them where possible. 

Year 11 attended a Driver’s Education program last Friday, equipping them with necessary information and training to ensure they become safe drivers. Instead of the students travelling off site, the trainers came to our school. The students were given the opportunity to strengthen their skills to become a safe driver and passenger, were spoken to by a local Police Officer and heard first-hand the experience of someone who has suffered the effects of a serious crash. This was a great opportunity for all the students. 

Our devotion this week comes from Lamentations 3:22-23; “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” In this passage, Jeremiah is in the midst of great misery and despair, but he finds hope in the unceasing mercies of God. God’s mercy is new every morning. It is fitted to the needs of your day. God has walked this day before you – He knows who you are, where you are, and what you’re facing. And in this combination of divine knowledge, power and compassion, He meets you with just the right mercies for the moment. You may not recognise or comprehend the extent of his mercies, but we can trust and find hope in the truth of God’s promises. 

In His service,
