A very wise man, Dr. Seuss once said “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go…”. I always love this time of year; we change seasons from Winter to Spring, the days get longer, the sun is brighter and the Year 12’s prepare for their graduation and final HSC exams. Graduation marks the end of an era for our Year 12 students and we wish them all the very best as they choose the path they will take after school. The future is unwritten and adventure awaits – oh, the places you’ll go, Year 12’s! ! It’s good to remember that this time can be marked with all kinds of emotions, ranging from excitement to anxiousness with all the changes ahead. Lets continue to support and uphold our Year 12 students, to the end of their schooling here – and beyond!
Thinking about graduation in the coming week, here are some words of wisdom that I have learnt along the way that are important for all students to remember, across every year group:
One of the things that I was extremely thankful for this week was the attendance of Year 6 at the leadership assembly and celebrating the new leadership body for 2024. The opportunities for students to serve and lead for the benefit of others in the Student Leadership Council or as year leaders is an amazing privilege. It is also a privilege for the students to serve their school community. So, as we finish Term 3 and wish our Year 12 a hearty goodbye, I say – Congratulations! “Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!”.
But as teachers, our prayer for each student is that they would come to know the Lord Jesus and the grace He has given to us. Philippians 1:9-11 says, “9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” We will continue to pray for our community here and that Christ will work in every life. Have a safe and restful holiday and we look forward to a fantastic Term 4.
Last week, we held our first ever Father’s Day Breakfast for High School! From paper plane competitions to dad jokes, it was a special time shared together celebrating the fathers and father figures of the WCCS community. Thank you to all who joined and helped make it a wonderful morning!
Last week, our Year 8 students embarked on a journey back in time during their Medieval Day! From donning authentic attire to savoring a medieval feast, they truly immersed themselves in history and had a blast! Thank you to the teachers for your input into this awesome day!
