A group of weary Year 11 students, staff and volunteers returned to school last Friday from their camp in the Flinders Ranges, tired but enthralled. This experience never ceases to fill those who attend with the awe and wonder of God’s creation. Students talk about how the morning prayers in the mountains and long hikes around Wilpena Pound are life changing experiences, stretching one to persevere when it’s hard and rely on team work to succeed. Thank you to the staff and volunteers who make the camp possible.
Torrens Valley Christian School punches above its weight at sporting carnivals, and last week was no exception as our primary and secondary netball teams gave of their best and were rewarded.
Our Reception classes enjoyed a visit from the Travelling Farm Animals at school yesterday as part of Earth Day and Farm Day. Who does not love animals? Students had a lot of fun dressing up as farmers and feeding the lambs, pigs, calves, rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs. What a rich learning experience!
Year 12 students are currently planning for the end of year in terms of their last day at school, the Formal and Graduation. These events are highlights on the school calendar and we look forward as staff, parents and extended family in sharing the success stories of students after 13 years of schooling.
Students in Years 9,10 and 11 are currently meeting with teachers to select subjects for 2023 as future careers and pathways are discussed and planned. Families in these year levels are welcome to meet and discuss any needs with staff at school.
Due to the wet weather we’ve recently experienced, the car park redevelopment has fallen behind schedule and is now due for completion by the end of October. Even though the project is behind schedule, we look forward to this significant improvement. The new primary school building project is on track for an October start and a building company has been approved by the School Board and Finance Committee.
As COVID-19 positive cases decline in our State, parents and students are reminded not to become complacent. Students who are unwell are not attend school but remain home. Thank you for working together in this regard to keep our community safe.
