    College Captain’s Address for 2020

     

    We are both extremely grateful and humbled to accept the position of College Captains for 2020. We know that fulfilling these roles are not something we can do in our own strength but instead, we are relying on God’s strength, the continued help and support from the College Prefects as well as the entire grade twelve cohort. We believe strongly in servant leadership, as set by the example of Jesus, and this is something we can all do – be an example for our peers, to the grades below us and to the people who look up to us. In the Bible, in Deuteronomy, it says that with God, one person can put a thousand to flight, but that two … Read the rest

    Pathways

    Written by Mr Doug Holtam, Principal

    The College tagline: Pathways to a purposeful future’ defines an important aspect of our Mission. Recently, the College Leaders gathered together to revisit and explore how we should lead, empower, support and encourage our students to ‘find’ their own post-school pathways in life. The discussions revolved around assisting students to develop career pathway options, providing time, within a ‘busy’ curriculum program, for students to explore their personal passions and develop their individual gifting, as well as considering what a Freshwater graduate ‘toolkit for life’ might include. 

    Our work led the group to draw on some important research (accessible from : https://www.fya.org.au/report/the-new-work-reality/) regarding the post-school career/work journeys of 14000 young people (aged … Read the rest
