Each grade is involved in various programs to enhance their relationship with God and each other.
We aspire to assist young people in developing a healthy self-esteem, with support programs and seminars relevant to current concerns for their age group.
‘Trail Blazers’ (Year 5) – Leadership program
Road safety seminars (Years 5-6)
Surf safety programs (Years 5-6) and during the Stage 4 Camp (Years 7-8)
Peer Support programs to aid integration of new students into Year 7
Pastoral Care class days which support the particular class group's needs to explore issues and learn about God in a different environment such as, for example, Farm days
Anti-graffiti presentations that use drama to explore the effect of peer pressure and how to resist it
Police presentations on cyber safety - to inform students how to stay safe on the Internet
Study Skills program - online and presentations
‘Bounce Back’ - a resilience skills program
Guide Dog program – ‘Puppy Pals’ is a program where students help care for and train a guide dog, to later benefit a person in the community by giving the assistance of sight and support - a reflection, in many ways, of how Jesus provides for us.
We have two School Counsellors available. Students can arrange an appointment to speak with a Counsellor by themselves, or via a parent or teacher request for assistance in, or outside the school.
Missions is fundraising to support others through activities such as:
‘Go without’ where students seek sponsorship to ‘go without’ (for example chocolate) for a period of days
Stage support or individual support of an overseas child or program
Missions trips – Darwin (Years 7-12) Wagga Wagga and Bundaberg for Flood relief support (Year 8)
Destiny Rescue - ice blocks sold to support the care of children in the world
