Who Wants To Be The Next Socceroos Coach?

Are you the next superstar soccer coach? Or are you keen to know the ins-and-outs of your child’s soccer games?

 

PE Teacher Andrew Farmer is holding soccer coaching and referee courses in November and early December. This opportunity is open for senior students and parents, please note: parents will be required to hold a Working with Children’s Check. Students who go on to coach/referee outside of the school will be required to hold a Working with Children’s Check.

 

Level 4 referee course normally costs $125, but this is a free opportunity!

 

This will enable the College to have parents and students qualified and knowledgeable about the game, and encouraging more students to enrol in our programs and clubs.

 

If you would like to sign up or require further information please email Andrew Farmer (afarmer@standrews.vic.edu.au).

Performing Arts Building Opening 

After only five weeks of work on-site, the new Performing Arts Building officially opened on Wednesday 1 August.

Staff and students celebrated to thank God for His provision of the new facility.

 

We were treated to performances from Years 1, 2 and 3 students as they sang ‘Let It Shine’, and the Middle School worship group enchanted us with the song ‘Cornerstone’.

 

Students and staff gathered together to celebrate all that we have been blessed with and our gifts and talents which we can use to glorify God.

Jonathan Edwards (Performing Arts Captain) blessed us by sharing Psalm 150, and prayers were offered by Ian Neo (Music Captain) and Mrs Karen Elbourne.

 

A bespoke trumpet fanfare for the occasion was held and Mrs Wansborough cut the ribbon!

 

We’re sure the Performing Arts staff will enjoy being located on the main campus area and we look forward to seeing all the upcoming activities. 

Sod Turning

Can you spot Mrs Wansborough? We held a small sod-turning ceremony to mark the new Middle School and Science building site.
