Walk my Way Ukraine

Walk my Way - Ukraine

91AV College regularly supports the work of Australian Lutheran World Service, who support poor communities and those impacted by emergencies in many countries, working with partners from across the world, including Lutheran World Service.

During the last couple of years we have supported a WalkMyWay event with donations going to provide for schooling in refugee camps and poor areas. This year ALWS is asking for support for children affected by the war in Ukraine, where may people had to flee their homes, and where many schools have been destroyed. Our support will be joined with support given by over 800 people who walked in Brisbane earlier this month and many others to make a difference for these children.

Our 91AV event will be on Friday June 14 (last day of school) after lunch and will include walks by all students on all three campuses.

Students are encouraged to commit to certain number of circuits around the ovals or the cross-country course, reflecting the fact that many children had to flee their homes and elicit donations to support their walk. We will not be collecting money at the school but ask that you make donations directly through the website, which will also provide you with a receipt.

There is a competition between houses again. Please support your child by making donations directly through the links below (each house has a separate link, which can also be accessed through the main website).

Thank you for your support of your children and the children of Ukraine.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Pastor Thomas.

Choral Eisteddfod News

All of the vocal groups at the College performed in the recent choral eisteddfod held at the Empire Theatre. The feedback received was encouraging and recognised the hard work of everyone who prepared these performances. Comments like ‘engaged from the beginning’, ‘great rhythmic drive and energy’ and ‘I am seeing great potential in this Choir’s work across all sections’ from the adjudicator David Webster really show that our choral program is hitting the right notes.

Congratulations to the Junior Choir (Years 3-4) who placed 1st and the Senior Choir (Year 5-6) who placed 3rd in their sections conducted by Ms Hayley Sugars.

Congratulations to SSC Choir (Years 7-12) and Con Voce who received a highly commended in the Secondary Folk Singing section conducted by Mr Roche Kelly. Con Voce’s heartfelt rendition of ‘The Fiddle and the Drum’ and energetic performance of ‘Every Night When The Sun Goes In’ was a fantastic way to commence our eisteddfod performances.

Congratulations to Grade 7 student Lenny Saggers, who added in extra groove with his percussion accompaniment.

Special thanks to our amazing piano accompanists Mrs Elizabeth Gordon and Mrs Kym Troy along with the college community who attended to show support, cheer and supervise our budding choralists. 

We would also like to congratulate Mrs Elizabeth Gordon who was awarded the Peg Russell Trophy for Accompaniment in recognition of her significant contribution through her accompaniment.

HSC Lost Property Items

We've had some items handed in to Reception over the last few weeks that we suspect belong to our wider community members, rather than our students.  If you have lost something, please pop into Reception and see if we have your lost treasure.

HSC Before and After School

Before School

Supervision of students at the Junior College begins at 8.00am each morning. There is no supervision provided by staff before this time.
HSC students who are arriving on the 7.50am CLC bus or who have siblings on the 7.50am CLC bus, are welcome to sit quietly on the green benches outside the Year 6 Classroom.

Students being dropped off in the mornings must remain with their parents until a staff member arrives for duty at 8.00am.  Parents and students are welcome to enter our playground gates once that staff member has arrived.

We appreciate your support of the above information so we can work together to keep our students safe.

WSC Before School Procedure

Students are not supervised at school before 8.00am so are not allowed to be on grounds without adult supervision before this time. We have noticed that many students are being dropped off in the morning well before 8.00am and this is a safety concern for us, as in some cases the students are being dropped off before staff have arrived.

Please also note that the Shed is not to be used as a Drive Through area in the mornings before school as this area is not supervised by staff. All students coming through Drive Through in the mornings must use the Yaldwyn Street Drive Through. A staff member will be on duty from 8.00am.

Thank you for your support in this matter as we work together to ensure the safety of all students.

Boarding News

Hello to all our Boarding families.

We are approaching week 7 and many students are starting to feel restless and tired. With the drop in temperature, staff are encouraging everyone to dress warmly. As the days and nights in Term 3 will be colder, we recommend that you send your children back with warm clothes, winter pyjamas, jackets, long pants, stockings, and some lip balm to protect against the cold wind.
