From The Principal-for-a-day

The Principal's Job

This week, we hear from Miss Kylie Warnes. This past Friday, Kylie was “Principal for a Day”, after winning the silent auction bid for the role at the Spring Fair. Kylie shares what she learned about being Principal.

Being Principal

Being principal is quite tough as you have to go to meetings, write documents, emails and write this! There are lots of fun things as you are able to meet SO MANY new people and be able to run chapels and assembly! Everyone just suddenly notices you out of the blue! It’s like just being pushed in the spotlight while doing karaoke. I’ve even gotten a PRESENT (a feather from a younger student) and CHOCOLATE from the staff room! People are also treating me with more respect and keep greeting me!

Sadly everyone keeps overwhelming me with silly requests that are ATROCIOUS and I would certainly not do them. I’m able to hand out merit awards and wear any clothes! They have to be professional.

School Captain Speeches for 2023

Yesterday our 12 nominations for School Captain spoke to Year 3-6 students and their parents. They presented their cases about why they would make good leaders for the school in 2023. Congratulations to all of the students involved in this process. All of the students presented to a high standard and the voting process is now underway. The captains for 2023 will be announced after chapel on Friday.

Y6 celebration at school
Yesterday evening the Team 6 students had an opportunity to celebrate their years together with inflatables, dinner, speeches and a disco to conclude the evening. It was a great way for the students to spend some informal time together and acknowledge their time at Lutheran School. It was such a fun evening. Thank you to Mr Gardner, Mrs English and Mr Richards for organisng the evening.

Assembly
Next Monday 5 December at 9.15am we will hold our end of year assembly. There will be a number of awards presented, including an announcement of the winner of the House Summit Cup. Parents are most welcome to attend.

Mini orientation
Next Monday 5 December the students will spend some time in their new classrooms for 2023. The teachers for the grades next year will also be finalised. I am sure this will be a valuable experience for all of our students.

Mufti Day / Anglicare food donation
This term’s mufti day will now take place on Wednesday 7 December. Students are encouraged to wear some festive clothing and accessories. This will coincide with the student class parties for K-Y5. As part of our COVID-19 risk assessment there will be no food sharing, and students will be required to bring their own festive lunch. Please ensure students wear sun-safe clothes (no singlets or thongs please). Also, please be reminded that students can make a food donation to Anglicare to support their work.

Message from Pastor Dave

It’s that time of year…the school year comes ever closer, things are winding down, and Christmas is just winding up. At this stage the Church is celebrating Advent, a season of celebration before Christmas. However, amid this celebration, there is still evidence that something is broken in our world. There are floods right here in Australia while Somalia is in an extreme drought, and Ukraine is at war with Russia; the world is broken.

But it is right in the centre of all this brokenness, in the culmination of this broken world, that we find the Word of the Lord. The word of the Lord had come to a man we know as Abraham, in the early part of the Old Testament. That which was promised in the fall, when Adam and Eve ate the fruit (Genesis 3) has been renewed through a promise that Abraham’s son Isaac would bear the promised Seed, a seed that would eventually lead to Jesus. But Abraham was put into a position where he had to trust God, the giver of the promise. Through Isaac would come Jesse, and through Jesse would come hope and joy and life.

That very hope, joy and life that is soon to be born at Christmas would be killed on the cross, according to Roman rule. All that would happen so we can receive the free gift of God’s grace in our lives.

Kaitlin Staines Cup – Stage 3

On Thursday 24 November our school participated in the Kaitlin Staines Cup at the South Wagga Tennis Club. We entered two teams of six, three boys and three girls per team.

Our students played 12-minute games of boys, girls and mixed doubles against Mater Dei, Wagga Wagga Christian College, Lake Albert and Henschke. Our teams performed extremely well, displaying wonderful skill and impressive sportsmanship during their matches.

The students in Lutheran Team 1 finished second in their pool and qualified for the semi-final against Wagga Christian College. Our team played very well, defeating Wagga Christian College by 3 sets and qualifying for the final against Mater Dei.

The final was tight; our team won 1 set and drew 1. The Mater Dei Team won 2 sets, and drew 1, giving Mater Dei a 1-set victory.

A big thank you to Zac Burhop for coordinating this event.

OSHC

Vacation care

The Program for the Christmas and New Year school holidays is now available and is already booked out on most days. If you would like to use OSHC these holidays please book in ASAP. Should you miss out on a space please speak to Bec, Mel or Aaron at OSHC via email [email protected] or 69238124 and we will add you to the wait list.

This week, the most popular activity was definitely playing with cardboard boxes. The children used their creativity to make buses out of boxes.

The students took what they know from the word around them and put it in their play as they made steering wheels, seatbelts and buttons for the buses.

This week, we are lucky enough to get two visits from Little Champions (Thursday and Friday), the students have been very excited!
