University Medal Recipient

The Jesse Tree

Each morning students have been placing a symbol on the Jesse tree. It reminds us of the  ancestry of Jesus as we await his coming. Jesse was the father of King David and Joseph, the foster father of Jesus, was a direct descendent of this line.

Mandatory Technology

The ‘Stylish Stumps’ exhibition was enjoyed by students in the garden today. The 7/8 class designed and created vegetables and fruit on garden stumps.  Many hours were put into the tiling and grouting and lots of new skills learnt.


We wish Miss Vieira and Mr Miller well as they begin new chapters of their lives. The school has been blessed to have Miss Vieira and Mr Miller as full time teachers since the school started. Miss Vieira has done an outstanding job in the educational and faith development of the K-2 students. She has had an integral role in the school’s success and is a much loved teacher. Mr Miller has been a wonderful and inspiring role model for our primary and secondary students. His exceptional talents in the arts and engaging style with the students will be greatly missed by both staff and students. God bless them in their future endeavours.
