Year 7

“Christmas for the Elderly”

The Christmas spirit has been well and truly alive amongst our Year 7 students, who have generously donated gifts to be sent to local nursing homes for the holiday period. In lieu of the annual Christmas Concert which was unable to go ahead this year due to Covid restrictions, students have been making beautiful cards for the residents of aged care facilities, and have assembled gift hampers to bring joy to the staff and residents this year. It has been pleasing to see the thoughtful and selfless attitude Year 7 has demonstrated in supporting this initiative.

 

Stephanie Sertic in 7HRM.N has demonstrated qualities of Christian discipleship with a thoughtful gesture to paint a canvas to be donated to a nursing home, a gift that will be treasured for years to come. In addition to this, students have filmed a short video that provides their best wishes to those in the local community ahead of the festive season. Thank you to all the parents and caregivers for the support of this initiative, your generosity has been very much appreciated.

 

I’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate each Year 7 student for completing their first year in high school in what has been a challenging year. I wish each of you and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season. I look forward to continuing to build professional relations with both students and parents/caregivers in 2021.
