Have you marked your diary for our ‘Carols on the Green’ event? It will be on Thursday 6 December starting with food trucks at 5pm and our concert will begin at 6pm with fireworks at 7.30pm. We welcome all families and friends to what we expect to be a wonderful celebration to end our school year. I look forward to seeing you there and thank Bec Crew and her P& F team for organising the food and fun for the evening. I also thank Mrs L and the teachers for working with our students on their performances. In a Lutheran School we welcome the beautiful message of Jesus birth and hope that this Christmas event will help you to find blessing through the festive season. A verse which may help your family think about Jesus’ birth could be John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave his only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. I would commend to you Grace Lutheran Church’s services during the festive season too which will be -: Christmas Eve Service (7pm) at Grace Lutheran College Chapel and also worship services at Maine Road on Christmas Eve at 11pm, as well as 25 December at 8:30am.
Year 6s enjoy their end of year celebrations
Our Year 6 cohort this year have been a delight! They have worked hard and enjoyed each others’ company throughout the year. I also know that their parents have been a connected group who also have shown great commitment to our school throughout their time here. Our Year 6s have been going off to their Secondary School Orientation days and come back with many stories of how big their new schools will be. The majority of our students go to Grace Lutheran College and the students who attended their orientation day this week were really excited to talk about all that they saw and did when they visited. As the Year 6 cohort finish their year, they have a beautiful graduation service at the church and then go out to dinner. They also have some fun events during the day and the teachers have been planning these events in readiness for their last week at school. I will miss our Year 6 students next year as they are truly a group of students who have been willing to serve, willing to laugh and enjoy life and willing to work hard too! I am also excited to announce that we have chosen six students to try out for School Captain for 2019. They will make their speeches to the Years 4 – 6 students on Thursday 22 November at 11.15am in the hall after which the students and staff will vote to establish who will lead our school students next year.
