Last Friday we farewelled the graduating class of 2017. There were happy tears overflowing with good memories and proud achievements and sad tears of saying farewell to friendships – some of which began 13 years ago.
It was also lovely to see the expression of good relationships the students had developed with their teachers. On the students’ last day and in their last few minutes of that day, they took time out to thank and hug their teachers.
I’m truly proud of our staff and students at GCC and believe that good teacher/student relationships are one of our great strengths.
On behalf of everyone at Glasshouse Christian College, I would like to wish the Year 12 graduating students of 2017 all the very best. I look forward to learning of their accomplishments in the future.
DeLorean Project showcase
With all the excitement of the formal and graduation last week I overlooked writing about the DeLorean Project showcase on Thursday 16 November. It was a fascinating night learning more about the students’ projects and being inspired by their creativity and innovation. No wonder we were named Queensland’s most innovative school by the Courier Mail recently! I can’t wait to see the innovations 2018 DeLorean students will make.
Three concerts in five days!
Today we had our Austrian “Smart Strings” concert but due to deadlines, I am writing this before the event. You would think that 90 violins being played by children in Year 3 would not be a pleasant experience. However, every year the students play beautifully and you can see the hard work and practice pay off. I am really looking forward to Friday’s concert. Photos from the event will be on our Facebook page and website in the next few days.
Monday night is the Prep to Year 2 concert and you really can’t get cuter than five to eight-year-olds singing and dancing with great big smiles on their faces. I love that these concerts give the opportunity to build our students’ confidence and talent.
Tuesday night is the Year 3 to 6 concert which I’m sure will be as entertaining as previous years. The older students embrace creativity to put on a great show.
Both concerts begin at 6pm. Please join with me in praying for good weather for each night.
