I don’t think I am alone as I share my amazement that the school year is almost over. It has been an outstanding year and I am so proud of all the achievements and accomplishments of our students. I am often inspired by their optimistic outlook on life, their astute insights and their amazing talents and I would like to thank them for their hard work throughout the year.
A special thanks to you, our parents, for your contribution in ways both small and large and for your dedication to the College. I can’t thank you enough for your endless hours of volunteering, transporting children to and from events, reading, organising, donating and doing whatever has been necessary to support your children, both at home and at school. The passion and strength within our community make our College a truly special place and a place that I am extremely proud to lead.
I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and congratulate the Year 6 graduating class of 2019 and thank them for everything they have done to make ‘Our House’ just a little bit better every day. They are an amazing group of young people and I know that they will continue to have a meaningful impact here at GCC as they move into Middle School. You can see photos and videos of the whole event here: Year 6 Photo Gallery.
To the incredible Primary staff and Primary Pastors, my sincere thanks to you all for your endless energy, for going above and beyond and for your devotion to the children in your care, Thank you also for all the laughs, the collegiality and for your ongoing support.
As we come to a close for 2019, I wish you all a safe and fun-filled summer holiday and a blessed Christmas season. I look forward to welcoming you back in 2020, refreshed and ready for what will be another exciting and exceptional year.
‘We give thanks to God for the great things He has done.’
Gail Mitchell, Head of Primary
