    A warm welcome to 2018

    Dear Parents/Guardians,
    Here’s wishing you and your precious family a very happy and prosperous New Year.

    I am very excited to be joining the Freshwater Christian College Community as the new Principal, and look forward to building on the excellent work that Mr Hector Costello has led in establishing the College as a provider of high quality Christian education.

    In reflecting on the successes of 2017, we celebrate with our Year 12 students who managed to achieve the best overall results in the College’s history. We achieved 2 OP 1’s for the first time and had over half our Year 12 students achieve an OP of 10 or below. We also achieved many awards at local, State and National level. Added to this our students achieved the best NAPLAN results we’ve had to date.

    It is not surprising that more and more parents are making the decision to have their children educated at Freshwater Christian College and we have had a lot of enrolment enquiries leading up to the start of the new academic year.

    2018 promises to be another highly successful year in the life of the College; the Staff have been working very hard to prepare for the big start on Monday 22nd January. A special thanks goes to the grounds staff who have made a number of improvements to the College grounds and landscaped areas. Consequently the College is looking beautiful. We thank God for the recent rain which has helped considerably. Improvements to our Stop, Drop, Go area will now mean that all our wet weather pickups will held from this location.

    I look forward to personally welcoming our students on Monday morning during our start of the year assembly, commencing at 9am (Year 4 to Year 12 students will attend this event), and invite you to join us if you are able to do so at the Church Auditorium.

    I hope to see you at our Parent Welcome Evening on Tuesday 30th January from 5.30pm, when we will provide detailed information regarding the year ahead. Information will be sent out shortly about this event.

    We thank God for his wonderful provision for the year ahead, and I look forward to partnering with you in seeing each and every child at Freshwater Christian College further develop their God given talents as they learn and grow in their knowledge, understanding, skills and character.

    May God bless you richly throughout the year ahead. Warm Regards

    Doug Holtam
