Brindabella Christian College

Message from our Principal

Dear Brindabella Christian College Community

The end of term is fast approaching, and we have lots of activities underway at the College- from exams to assessments to wrapping up a terms worth of learning. There are also, as is the way in winter months, a number of viruses doing the rounds. Please ensure as much as you can that students come to school dressed appropriately for these very cold mornings, with plenty of healthy food to keep them going through out these cold and busy days.

Our new Sports and Performing Arts Centre is being put to good use and the students are enjoying the wonderfully designed space. The recent day of drama performances was a great opportunity to display the facility as a fine performance area. I was so impressed with the quality of drama I saw- we certainly have many talented students whose skills are being ably developed and led by the gifted Mrs Goldsmith. Thank you to all the parents who were able to make it to the performances held at various times throughout the day. The HPE Faculty are making sure this new space is well utilized by our HPE classes, and are supervising lunches to make sure students get good use of the facility throughout the day. In addition, the HPE faculty has been incredibly busy coordinating and supervising at the numerous athletic events around Canberra for which our students have qualified. I am very grateful to Mrs Kelly and her team for all the hours they have given recently to ensure these many events went so well.

Each term there is a principal’s tour for families interested in our school. The one held this week was very well attended, and we had some wonderful student leaders who took the groups of parents around our facilities. I am always impressed with the care our student leaders take on days such as this, to point out the highlights of the campus and discuss what they enjoy about coming to school at Brindabella. For the first time this year, our wonderful Junior School Band entertained our visitors before the session formally commenced- it is great to see the progress these young musicians are making under the teaching of Mrs White.

There are a number of maths competitions occurring at the moment as well, and the number of students volunteering to extend themselves in these competitions is fantastic to see. Our most recent competition has 200 students participating! My thanks to Mrs Johnson for her work in coordinating these opportunities for our students.

Recently I was given cause to reflect on challenging times and I came across 1 Peter 4:7-19. I would like to share The Message translation of this scripture today:

Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless - cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything - encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!  Friends, when life gets really difficult, don't jump to the conclusion that God isn't on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. If you're abused because of Christ, count yourself fortunate. It's the Spirit of God and his glory in you that brought you to the notice of others. If they're on you because you broke the law or disturbed the peace, that's a different matter. But if it's because you're a Christian, don't give it a second thought. Be proud of the distinguished status reflected in that name! It's judgment time for Christians. We're first in line. If it starts with us, think what it's going to be like for those who refuse God's Message! If good people barely make it, What's in store for the bad? So if you find life difficult because you're doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he's doing, and he'll keep on doing it.

Yet again, God tells us to trust in Him, and while we are trusting in Him to go on serving Him by loving others, and practicing generosity and practical service to others. It can be so hard when there are difficult times and yet we are told to keep on serving and to trust. God is in control, as long as we submit to His will not ours, and he will see us through for His glory.

Please continue to pray for all our students, especially our senior students who have exams this week and AST practice next week.

God bless you


Christine Lucas

ELC Lyneham Update

Dear Families,


‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’
- Joshua 1:9

» Read More

The last instalment of our three-part mini-series talks about the autonomous child. This is when children seek out their own stimuli and apply learning techniques to further their own knowledge, engagement and understanding. This learning style is best-aligned with a socio-cultural approach, developed by Lev Vygotsky.

Vygotsky suggests that children centre themselves in community and from that community, ‘make meaning.’ This is where children are encouraged to make meaning from what they know, understand and can relate to. Vygotsky argues that cognitive development progresses from social interaction, guided learning within the zone of proximal development as children and with their peers co-construct knowledge.

Vygotsky’s theory promotes a ‘play based learning environment.’ Play is an integral part of development. Not to be mistaken for a natural course of the day, children socially interact on a play-based level, learning, sharing and conversing their ideas and concepts to assist them in making sense of the world around them. Play provides rich experiences and understanding for children, where, valuable learning is done in a social setting. Children and later, adults who are or were starved of play in their learning journey often find it more difficult to execute, understand and deal with situations. Learning through and with play also develops sensory-motor skills and promotes cognitive development in children who are at a crucial exploratory stage, between the years of 0 and 5- which we term, ‘The Early Years.’

An Autonomous child is an investigator who independently takes charge of learning; how, what and when they want to explore a concept or idea. Consciously and subconsciously, a child observes, notes, stores information, responds and then conducts themselves based on that inquiry. Children are autonomous and are indeed, agents of their own learning, learning from what they perceive as important and relevant to them at that time. Children should be given every opportunity to learn and take autonomy for their development, as this equates to meaningful and authentic learning and development, changing the roles and creating an equal and respectful learning partnership between adult and child.

Straying from the behaviourist theory of conditioning a child to respond, they need to be inspired and respond how and when they deem appropriate. Children are invited to use real tools and objects to assist in their sense making processes, rather than providing them with what an adult deems the child is ready to learn. When children take responsibility for their learning in a supportive partnership with their peers and educators, their understandings and development will progress and move more realistically towards outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework.

Blessings,

The ELC Teams.

Look at our awesome learning this past fortnight!

Junior School Update

Dear Junior School,

‘God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them’ (Hebrews 6:10). I would like to extend a huge thankyou to our Junior School leaders who were superb in their organization of their recent ‘Keeping Kids Safe Day’. Their time and efforts contributed to our College donating $378 to The Daniel Morcombe Foundation. Let’s hope that through further education our children will grow to know and understand their right to live in a safe environment and have skills which assist them to identify unsafe situations. » Read More

Last week you will have received a note about the next Junior School Student Leader initiative which is a Pizza and Movie Evening. Please remember to book through the Trybooking link if your child/children would like to attend.
Messy Play continues to be a fun area for our children however the play items just disappear. If you have any items you would like to donate to our ‘Messy Play’ please leave in the coloured tubs outside my office. Items may include hoses, plumbing pipes, hose reels, pots and pans, spoons, cups, buckets, cones, smooth timber. The list is endless. Please ensure all items are clean and free of sharp edges.
As we enter the flu season it’s important that your children remain as healthy as possible; keep hydrated with water, wash their hands, get lots of rest/down time and sleep. If they are unwell often a day’s rest is extremely beneficial and prevents the spreading of germs, especially if they are coughing and sneezing.
The Winter season has hit us recently. Following the guidelines of The Cancer Council children do not need to wear their hats for outside activities in June and July. This is an opportunity for hats to be washed and re-labelled. Children are always welcome to wear their hat during this time if they like.
On Friday 28th June the Junior School classes will be open for you to visit and spend time hearing about your child’s learning so far this year. You are welcome from 2:15pm – 3:15pm.
Friday 5th July (the last day of term) will be the Athletics Carnival. Year 3 to Year 6 will hold their carnival at Dickson Oval. Kindergarten to Year 2 will have their Athletics Carnival on the Lyneham Oval. Please be diligent in returning any permission/volunteering notes required for these events.

Bounce Back
The upcoming weeks will see your children hearing and learning about ‘Honesty’. There will be opportunities for them to share their experiences of honesty and how they felt during these times.

‘Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless’ Mother Teresa

Yours in Christian Education

Year 1 Update

This term in HASS Year 1 has been learning about the past. » Read More

We have learnt about what school, living and games were like 60-100 years ago. Conducting interviews with our grandparents, reading stories, playing old school games with our buddies, listening to guest speakers and going on an excursion to Lanyon Homestead were all exciting parts of this journey. It has been a lot of fun comparing what children did a long time ago to now. We really enjoyed some of the games that children played but we all agree that we are very lucky living in today with our modern technology.

Lyneham Middle School News

Middle School Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome Middle School readers! What a wonderful and busy two weeks it has been. There have been many successes in the Middle School, so let’s get straight into it. » Read More

Attitude towards learning is one of the most important aspects of school life. The past two weeks has seen many assignments and tests had for all students. During this busy time, I have been impressed with how students have given their all. Whilst for some students (and parents) it has been a daunting task, it was pleasing to see students stick it out and finish the race.

Acts 20:24b says, “My only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Whilst Paul here was referring to his life, we can apply this to the daily, sometimes mundane tasks we need to do. Students have been given a task to learn and to learn to their fullest potential. Learning to glorify God through our schoolwork is a joy and should be counted as such. He is worthy to be praised through the work we do. Well done Middle School students – you have done well.

The Middle School SRC has been working very hard over the course of the semester. We have just had two proposals approved. More details will come; however, the two big announcements are; 1) plastic straws will no longer be used at the café – they will be replaced with paper straws and will be much better for the environment, and 2) fundraising for playground equipment through the container deposit scheme will start to take shape over the coming months. A big thank you to Rebecca and James for their efforts. Another successful initiative is introducing some rules surrounding basketball. A big thank you to Nandhitha for her contribution in getting this ready.

Finally, we are introducing a house points system for Middle School students next semester. Mr Suitor has been the driver behind this (thank you) and it will encourage and reward students for doing the little things right. We want to strengthen house spirit and students working towards something bigger than themselves. Students continually do many positive actions, and this is a way for these to be rewarded. Whether it’s picking up someone else’s rubbish, holding a door open for a teacher or continually doing their best, students will be able to contribute their points towards their house, with the winning house receiving an end of term celebration. We are currently running a design competition for the tickets. I look forward to seeing what students come up with.

Blessings,

Paul Thompson

We look forward to hosting the Raiders again in the future and playing another game of dodgeball with them.

Lyneham Senior School News

Senior School Update

Dear Parents,

» Read More

This week, students in Years 10-12 are all sitting exams. It’s been an interesting week observing a range of approaches to exams. Some students have been anxious and fretting about many things, while other students look very calm and say they’re not too worried. I sent all students some tips from Australian psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg, author of Surviving Year 12: A Sanity Kit for Students and Their Parents. Among other things, Carr-Gregg suggests getting a good night’s sleep, eating well, drinking lots of water, exercising, and taking responsibility for your study by working out a timetable. These are common-sense strategies for optimising health, but they’re also often the first to be neglected when we’re under stress. Interestingly, Carr-Gregg says that part-time work of up to 10 to 12 hours a week is manageable, but 15 or more hours will interfere with the study regime. Parents, please monitor how much your children are doing outside of school and ensure that they’re not trying to juggle too many responsibilities. Parents can also contribute to their children’s ability to manage stress and calmly navigate exams. If parents are stressed and anxious, easily angered, quick to yell or accuse, then chances are that their children’s stress levels will also increase. We know that stress can become crippling and detract from our ability to perform at our best. If expectations are impossibly high, stress levels will also increase. It’s important to assure your children that they don’t have to achieve perfect results. They just need to put effort in to do the best that they can in the time that they’ve got – then leave it in the past, move on to the next exam, and be satisfied with their effort. Try to keep your home as calm and organised as possible. Routines and a sense of consistency are very important to help teenagers to feel calm and ready to face the challenges of the day. In addition, it’s very important to keep a sense of humour. If things get too heavy and serious, it’s time to appreciate the lighter things in life. As God’s word says, ‘A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength’ (Proverbs 17:22). We wish every student the best as they complete their exams this week.

A PRAYER FOR COLLEGE EXAMS

~ Author Unknown ~

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not flunk;

He keepeth me from lying down when I should be studying.

He leadeth me beside the water cooler for a study break.

He restoreth my faith in study guides.

He leads me to better study habits

For my grade’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of borderline grades,

I will not have a nervous breakdown for Thou art with me.

My prayers and my friends, they comfort me.

Thou givest me answers in moments of blankness;

Thou annointest my head with understanding.

My test paper runneth over with questions I recognise.

Surely passing grades and flying colours shall follow me

All the days of my examination,

And I shall not have to dwell in school forever,

AMEN!

Yours in Christian Education
