Recycle Heroes

Recycle Heroes

The QGLA recently visited Central Queensland Christian College Prep to Year 7 students to talk about recycling. Students were encouraged to think about how we can improve our care of the beautiful Earth God has given us. The QGLA left recycling hero vests at the school to encourage students to step up and make a difference. Students are excited to become recycling heroes and make their homes, city and school a better place to be by keeping them clean and tidy.


Middle School Announced for 2013

A topic of discussion at the last Parent Night was whether we should start a Middle School class for Years 7 and 8 from 2013. Feedback received has been positive and the Board has now decided to proceed with this development. That means that the current Year 6 and 7 students will form the first Middle School class next year. This is an exciting development which will benefit students educationally and socially. If you weren’t able to attend the meeting and would like to know more or have questions, please contact the school office.


Opportunity to Bless CQCC Staff

Opportunity to Bless CQCC Staff

Everyone knows how important teachers are and how tough their work can be. But how often do we take the time to say thank you for the wonderful job they do? QTMB has come up with a way for community members to show their thanks, and help their school win a $20,000 staffroom makeover - The Staffroom for Improvement Comp. Parents, friends, students and other members of the community can help CQCC win a brand new staffroom by visiting: www.staffroomforimprovement.com.au/


Caring for Cambodian Kids

Caring for Cambodian Kids

Faith Appleton is raising money for Cambodian Kids this Christmas. She hopes to send at least $1000 to Pastor Meng Aun for the Jesus School (CQCC’s sister school) and Oraphanage. The Jesus School was started by Pastor Meng Aun in 2003 after he discovered hundreds of children working in a dump near Phnom Penh, the Cambodian Captial. Street Children accepted into the Jesus School are given an education, uniforms, medical help and are supported through Highschool and Tertiary education in government schools. Please consider giving a financial gift to bless Cambodian Kids this Christmas.


Senior Work Program QSA Approved

CQCC Highschool Teachers and Principal, Michael Appleton, have been working closely with the QSA to get all our Senior Work Programs approved by the Queensland Studies Authority. Thanks to their hard work and dedication all our Senior Work Programs except for English have been approved! This approval is extrememly exciting for CQCC as this gives our graduating year 12 students the opportunity to get an OP score as they leave school and consider tertiary education. While approval of the English Work Program is still pending CQCC celebrates the impact this will have on future graduates.


Chess Success!

The CQCC Primary and Highschool Chess Teams ventured to the State Championships in Brisbane this term. Primary student Jarret won the most games in the entire State Competition and Highschool student Nathanael won the most games in the Queensland Regional Division. While the CQCC teams didn’t hit the leader board, the students benefited from a chess workshop and some challenging competition.
