SLC News

As we approach the end of Term 3, we as a school community are witnessing the final stages of many things. One of the most notable and significant is the end of the formal schooling chapter for our Class of 2018. On behalf of the current Year 12, we would love to share that it has been an extraordinary honour to serve and be a part of this incredibly loving and supportive school community. We have had the privilege to see the school community grow in a number of ways over the years. While this may be the end of our time at William Carey, we will always remember and hold dear in our hearts the memories that have shaped who we are. We cannot wait to see where the future of the school lies and how great of an influence the future SLC will have on the school.

Keep Year 11 in your prayers as they have undergone their yearly exams during the final week of term and now await results. Exam periods can be very stressful and overwhelming, however, it is so important to remember that our marks are not what grant us a relationship with God. Year 11, work with diligence and perseverance, and remember that there are more important things to fix your mind on. Do everything to honour Him, for He has given you all that you need and much more. Don’t let these be distractions, however, use them to equip yourself and share with those don’t yet know or want to know more. We are praying for you Year 11, study hard and do the best that you can!

J-walk was hosted once again on Thursday the 13th of September. We had our very own Tony Tripodi from Year 12 share his testimony and how God has worked in his life. There was an amazing turnout of over 100 students and teachers. It is so encouraging to have so many peers keen to learn and hear more about the Bible and support each other in our walks with our Father God. Thank you to the J-walk band for all your preparation, and the amazing music you produced on Thursday, and thank you Tony for stepping out and being incredibly gracious by sharing with us.

“Be Joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer” – Romans 12:12.

As Christians, we have great hope in what we believe. Through all of our trials and mishaps, this hope remains.
