Dear Friends!

It is with sadness that I write this message to you all. I have taken indefinite leave from school to be with my daughter and her family in Cessnock, NSW.


Tim Farmilo is Acting Principal in my absence. Please support him and the ELT as they all step up whilst I am away. I have full confidence in each member of our wonderful executive team.


My daughter Kim, is seriously ill with cancer and both her husband and youngest child also have serious health issues. For my daughter and her husband, their continual sufferings seem like a JOB story. We need to be with our family in NSW.


I am so thankful for the support and prayers of all our beautiful community at St Andrews Christian College. Paul and I are so blessed to be part of the family at St Andrews! 


We are so thankful that we received permission to travel to NSW and are also thankful to God for hospital arrangements/operation in Sydney for our daughter.


Only God can get us through such circumstances and we are trusting God every step of the way, even though we don’t understand ‘why’?


“ I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19


Abundant blessings,

Catriona Wansbrough
