Year 12
Yesterday was a wonderful celebration for our Year 12 students as the whole school came together for the Year 12 Graduation Assembly. It is wonderful to see students mature through the years and grow in their knowledge of God. Please remember to pray for our Year 12 students over the holidays as they continue their study. The Higher School Certificate Examinations commence on Thursday 18 October.

School Fair
Last Saturday was a great day! Amazing weather, popcorn, fairy floss, amusement rides were enjoyed by the young and not so young. Thank you to everyone who helped with its organisation beforehand, at the Fair, or with pack up at the end of a long day. Events such as this cannot be successful without the commitment of many people who generously give of their time and skills. Thank you also to Fair Coordinator, Brad Ptolemy, for his organisation of a wonderful day.

Thank You
Middle School Thank You Week was a reminder to the whole School of the importance of being thankful in all things. The Police, Fire & Rescue, Ambulance and Mr Philip Ruddock, Mayor of Hornsby, visited during the week as Middle School students showing their appreciation for the work these visitors do in the community.

Community Service Day
Senior School Community Service Day on Wednesday saw students from Years 9-11 assist at a number of organisations. The rain did not dampen the spirits of students as they worked in a wide variety of jobs throughout the day. It is encouraging to hear the response from the people they visited and of their appreciation for our students and their work. Thank you to the staff for their commitment in organising these events.

Term 4
Students will return to school for the commencement of Term 4 on Tuesday 16 October. Term 4 is always busy and seems to go very quickly. Please put in your calendar Presentation Night on Thursday 13 December, the final day of school.

I trust all families will enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday. Please take care if you are travelling on the roads over the school holiday break.

Mr Andrew Waters
Assistant Principal
