    Welcome to 2017

    Welcome to 2017 at Freshwater Christian College. We especially welcome the new families to our community and we thank you for partnering with us in the educational journey of your children.

    Our Chaplain Carla will, on my behalf, be contacting all our new families in the next week or so to see how your students are going from your perspective and to see if there is anything we can do to assist in making the transition to a

    Challenges of the Journey

    This week I received a visitor who reminded me of an unusual event that occurred six years ago at the College. About this time of year, three gentlemen used the College as a starting point for a 2,000 km walk to Stanthorpe. Many of our students walked with them for the first kilometre. They were walking to raise awareness for a missionary endeavour and also as a personal challenge for the individuals who were involved.

    The visitor this week presented me with a book of that very adventure and all they encountered on that long walk. As I read through the book I was impacted not only by the description of the journey but of the … Read the rest

    Troy Delgado to represent at State Tennis Championships

    Congratulations to Troy Delgado who will be representing the Peninsula Region at the Queensland School Sports 12&U Tennis State Championships on 04-07 August 2016 at Tennyson, Brisbane.

    Troy started playing tennis when he was ten years old and was observed to be a gifted tennis player by his coach. This was evident when he started winning in tournaments as soon as he joined. To date, he has accumulated 15 trophies and has an equally impressive Australian tennis ranking for his age.

    Well done Troy!
