Year 8


To Year 8 Family and friends,

As 2020 comes to a close it is a perfect time to reflect on the year that has been. The Year 8 Doves have journeyed through a pastoral program exploring their value of Acceptance. When Jesus reached out to many who were marginalised and lived on the fringes of society, He accepted everyone, regardless of their social status, their gender, their sins or their wealth. The vision for learning for the pastoral program aimed to encourage all students to develop their best selves through building a collaborative and supportive learning space through the value of Acceptance. Topics around diversity and differences that make us unique. Building strengths, confidence and resilience, demonstrating empathy towards others should stand the students in good stead to continue to develop their best selves heading into 2021.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish every Year 8 family a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
