This week, I had the honour of blessing the Briggs House Banner as the Year 12 House Captains passed on the House Flag to Year 11, ready for them to take up the leadership of the House.  This was the first time I had attended a ‘Handing on of the Colours’ and final House meeting and I was very impressed with the passion and commitment each of the students had for their House leaders, environment and spirit.

The Chapel theme for this term is ‘Kindness’, the fourth spiritual value of the students who were surveyed last year.  Watching a video about kindness, the students were led on a journey of how kindness is something that is spread from one human being to another and so we have a choice, to spread kindness, being goodness for all, or other options which might lead to the opposite.

For me, it was a very special occasion as the Year 10 Leadership Team conducted the whole event, from the making of the slides to all the different voices needed to make it their own.  I am very impressed with how the leadership in the College stands up once the Year 12’s leave for exams.

Well done Year 10.  Very proud of you all.

Our Christmas project was also announced.  We will be supporting the Salvation Army’s Red Bag Appeal so keep a look out for how the project will be supported by our school.  It all began with Grace Kearney, taking on a project in Year 6 and she has never stopped  – so this year, the school thought, because of her longevity and tenacity in doing such a good effort of kindness for the less fortunate families around Launceston, we would get behind her.

We hope to see your support, if you are able, in the coming weeks.
