Having a Blast; Enjoying a Splash

Having a Blast; Enjoying a Splash

Swimming lessons are extremely important for every Australian student to attend; confidence in the water could save lives in the future. But while it’s crucial for children to learn to swim, it’s also just plain fun! We’ve seen some hot days this summer and the kids absolutely love getting in the pool. PE Teacher, Mr Gorge, balances the fun with instruction and it’s really wonderful to see how fast the kids are learning and improving their swimming skills! we have had heaps of fun 2012 is two days away!

School's Back

School's Back

2012 has arrived and so has the school year! We kicked off the school term with the biggest School Assembly in Central Queensland Christian College’s history with 80 students! It’s so exciting to see God answering our prayers and bringing wonderful families to the school. Please continue to pray for enrolments for 2012 and 2013 and ask God to bless our amazing students, staff and families with a wonderful year.


Welcome to School!

Welcome to School!

Meet this year’s adorable Central Queensland Christian College Prep Class: Samuel S., Ei-Seul, Ethan, Samuel M., Brielle and Stephen (Left to Right). The long-awaited first day of school was very exciting for the Preps, parents, teachers and older students. Little Samuel M. was enjoying school so much, he declared he would bring his bed to school so he could live in his classroom!


Timetable Adjustment

Dear Parents,

Please note on the weeks where there is a Public Holiday or a Pupil Free Day, our timetable is altered.

Wednesday will be a 'Day 2.' Prep - Year 3 will wear sports uniform.
Thursday is a 'Day 4.' Prep – Year 3 will be in sports uniform again.
Friday is a 'Day 5.' Year 4 – 12 will be in sports uniform.

Because there is no 'Day 3' this week, Year 4 – 12 will not be having a swimming lesson.

Altering our timetable in this way means that subjects timetabled for Monday aren't missed, as a lot of Public Holidays fall on Mondays.


Piano Lessons

Dear Parents,

Emily S. is completing her Year 12 this year and has some spare periods she is making available for young piano beginners. She is offering to give lessons to students in Prep – Year 5.

Lessons will be held in the last session on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.

The cost will be $10 for 20 minutes or $15 for 30 minutes.

Piano students will need a $15 music book, provided by Emily, and a standard exercise book.
