From the Principal
The Bible reminds us to be thankful at all times. There are so many verses that talk about being grateful and full of thanksgiving. I think the benefits of being thankful are much more than we think.
In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.
I feel so blessed by, and grateful for, the amazing staff, students and families at Australian Christian College. The culture of kindness that we have is very special.
A follower of Jesus wrote,
”But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us spreads and makes evident everywhere the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him.”
2 Corinthians 2:14
National Book Week Celebrations
Last week we celebrated National Book Week, and what a fantastic time that was, finishing with an amazing Assembly, where the children and teachers dressed up as their favourite book character. Thank you parents for helping the children look absolutely terrific.
One of the highlights for me was the Book Fair, managed by a group of our wonderful mums, lead by Smitha Emprayil. We are so thankful to Smitha and her team - Tess Gonzales, Anju Nishad, Nisa Karimkurayil and Jennifer Cagoco - for making this a special event for us all.
Keep Friday 20th October from 6:00pm - 7:30pm free and come along to the next Community Connection, where parents and children will have fun together.
Enrolments for 2018
If you, or your friends, want your children to be part of the ACC community in 2018, we invite you to complete an enrolment form here. Places are available from Kindy to Year 6 (boys and girls).
Our Principal, Jacqui Burrage, is now conducting interviews with parents and their newly enrolled children.
Parents and Friends
We are so blessed at ACC to have such wonderful parents who organised the Father’s Day stall for our children last week. Elise Marshall, Jade Turner and Amit Gandhi helped the children purchase a gift to give to their dads on Father’s Day. Thank you!
Please remember to bring in your empty aluminium cans, and even those of your friends and neighbours. It’ll help the P&F in their fundraising efforts.
