Christmas Blessings

In the Lutheran tradition, we celebrate a ‘season’ of Advent in the four weeks prior to Christmas. Advent is a time of waiting and anticipation. God’s people in the Old Testament waited generations to welcome the Messiah, Jesus. It was through Jesus that we receive the ultimate gift of salvation.

Our Year 6 students in particular are awaiting a new chapter in life as they enter High School. In their graduation service, the reading from Romans 8:38-39 says

I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love. Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us. Not even the highest places or the lowest, or anything else in all creation can separate us. Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.

The love of God in Jesus brings us together and keeps us together. May our God of peace and love keep you healthy and safe this Christmas season and beyond.

Team 6 movements

This year, 53% of our graduates will move to TRAC, 20% to Mater Dei, 10% to Kildare and the remaining 17% to government schools.

Summit Cup

Congratulations to Willans Hill who took out the Summit Cup. The trophy was presented to the House Captain’s in Monday’s assembly.

 

2021 School Captains

Congratulations to Clara Labens and Angus Tait who were elected as School Captains and Caitlin Oakley and Noah Thompson who elected as Vice Captains for 2022. They shared a captain’s lunch on Tuesday with the 2021 captains who were able to pass on some advice on the role and what they had learnt from carrying out the job. They will be formally inducted into their roles early next year. 
 
Team 6
The Team 6 graduation service will be held tonight in the undercover area at school. Due to Covid restrictions only 2 parents/carers will be able to attend the event. The service will be a mixture of songs, prayers and readings from our students and a gospel message. I would like to thank the Team 6 students for the contribution they have made to the school. We give best wishes and God’s blessing to the students as they prepare to move onto a new chapter of their lives. Take whatever opportunities come your way and enjoy new challenges. Go well students!
 
Farewell Mrs von Mengersen
As you know Mrs von Mengersen is moving to Northern New South Wales at the end of the term. Mrs von Mengersen has served Lutheran School Wagga Wagga for 18 years. We will miss her energy, enthusiasm for student learning and driving change for improved student outcomes. We wish her well as she starts a new chapter in her life.
 
Farewell Mr Lieschke
Mr Michael Lieschke will also be finishing up at Lutheran School. Michael has worked at the school for 23 years which is a fantastic amount of service to one school. Michael has worked variety of roles at school from Classroom Teacher, Computer Teacher and then in recent years the Technology Officer. We thank Michael for his work and service to Lutheran Education.
 
2022
We look forward to welcoming our students back to school on Monday 31 January. 
 
As this is the last newsletter of the academic year, I would also like to wish all of our families God’s richest blessings and that you have a restful and peaceful break.

Curriculum Matters

Mastermind 2021
Thank you to all the participants and supportive staff for ensuring the Mastermind Grand Final went ahead last week. In particular thank you to Ms Grant and Mr Evans for their involvement. I missed a thrilling event! A tie for title of Mastermind 2021 – the first time this has ever happened! Well done to Scarlet and Imogen Logan on their fantastic efforts. Congratulations also to Liam and Harry for their second and third placing.

Riverina Interschool Chess Competition.
I am very pleased to able to finally announce that our LSWW Chess Team were named Riverina Champions this year. A special congratulations to Lance Palmer who was awarded the ‘Highest Scorer’. I am sure these boys will continue to grow and develop as a champion team in 2022.

Farewell
I would like to thank our Lutheran School Community, past and present, for all their support and kindness these past 18 years. My journey here has come to an end, and I will treasure the memories I have made here, particularly the ones of working with hundreds of Lutheran School students since 2003! I have been fortunate to have worked alongside some outstanding teachers and support staff – each with their own unique gifts and talents. I will miss this very special place and know that while I have contributed in some small ways, LSWW has helped me become the educator I am today – for that I am eternally grateful. God Bless.

OSHC

This year at OSHC we have done so many exciting activities where we have been able to see the students grow.

We have encouraged the students to express what they enjoy so that we can create programs around what the students love.

Some of the student led activities that were very popular amongst a large age range were role playing hairdressers, using the dress-ups and creating jewelry with Loom bands.

This year with the 2021 Olympics we saw the students engage in a number of sports such as golf, hockey and basketball. With this, the students displayed great respect for one and other as they listened to their referees and showed great teamwork.

I have asked the students what their favourite things about OSHC have been this year some responses were:

“The pj day during the holidays because it was really fun and we didn’t have to get dressed” –Harriet 11

All the craft we did because there was lots of different things to do and there was always someone there to help”- Eliza 9

“Balloon Day because we got to go on a jumping castle” Lachlan 6
“Playing with friends at laser tag” Jack 6

We look forward to more activities like these during the Summer holidays.
