Principal’s Desk – 6 February 2020

Welcome to new and returning students, parents and carers.  Our College theme for 2020 Let your light shine for others invites us to anticipate a community of shared learning goals.

“We have a mandate and purpose to stay in the Light ourselves, and then shine it for others.

College Theme 2020

Our College Theme for 2020 is 'Shine your light for others'.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
