Opening Convocation

Many of our school families and students braved the windy, wet weather on Tuesday evening February 4 to gather at the SDA Church and Community Centre. From 5:30pm the P&F served pancakes with a range of delicious toppings to choose from. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the opportunity to chat and eat together.

At 6:30pm the Opening Convocation program commenced in the Church. At the beginning of each year, we formally gather as a school community to ask God’s blessing and guidance over the year ahead. Following Mr Fitzpatrick’s address, our school captains, student representatives and senior students were called up on to the stage to be presented with their respective badges. A special prayer was offered over them and the responsibilities they have accepted. Mr Peers then prayed for the student body as a whole and Mrs Sandy prayed for the parents and families of the students. The program concluded with a flag presentation by Mr Stanfield. We are proud to be a Christian school with a strong prayer focus.
