Central Queensland Christian College Senior student Shemah, has been raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation. The Leaukaemia Foundation offers support to patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and other related blood disorders. Shemah has been door-knocking areas of Rockhampton and selling lunches at CQCC to raise money and awareness. “I think it’s really important to remember the people that aren’t as priviledged as us,” says Shemah.

My Highschool Camp Experience by Emily

My experience at High School Camp was awesome. The camp was at a place called Kiah Park which is just east of Gympie. It is mainly a horse riding camp. The bus ride from Rockhampton to Camp was great fun. It was wonderful to put schoolwork aside and to be able to talk, laugh and sing.

Kiah Park is a beautiful place with rolling hills and lovely views. I loved seeing the sun coming up and down each day. Once we had arrived we unpacked and had some dinner.

Joseph graduated Year 12 at Central Queensland Christian College in 2010. Unsure of what he wanted to do, Joseph started law subjects at Central Queensland Univserity in 2011 before deciding to move into a Bachelor of Information Technology. Joseph hopes to write a few ficticious novels and move into a career in I.T. in the future. He encourages students to throw themselves into their learning: “Be passionate about your studies and it can be really fun!” Joseph says.

Those Who Wait Upon the Lord - Michael Appleton

On returning home from India, I was delighted to see our new sign work on the Covered Games Area. Seeing the large sized logo reminded me of the Scripture verse that accompanies it:
Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31
