On Monday 14th May, our Hospitality students visited the Melba Restaurant, located in one of Melbourne’s finest hotels, The Langham. It was a culinary delight and we are looking forward to seeing the results appear in the weeks ahead as they show us what they gained from the experience!
The Parents’ Prayer Group meets once a month on Wednesdays straight after assembly in the boardroom. Everyone is welcome to come along and pray for our College. The next date is Wednesday, April 18th.
Not that I am complaining, but when I was at school (albeit in the UK) the idea of Outdoor Education including a trip to the beach, in this case, Philip Island, to learn to surf, would never have entered our heads. The best we got was muddy cross-country running in the rain! All part of the HCC experience.
Happy Chooks! A virtual army of HCC parents descended on the College on Saturday for a working bee. One objective was the ‘Chook Hotel’ and the adjacent veggie garden. The photos may not do it justice, but suffice to say we have some happy chooks! Not sure I can get away with saying our Principal is a happy chook, but he was pleased with the turnout… Still, a great community can do great things when they work together. The spirit of HCC.
Ask one of our fifteen Gravitate students, what is the metanarrative of the Bible? Or, what would they say if someone asked them, ‘What is unique about the Christian faith?’ Or even, ‘What’s the difference that Jesus has made in their lives?’. Our Gravitate students faced these questions on the weekend at a camp in Phillip Island. They dug deep and found some really great responses. The theme for the camp was 1 Peter 3:15: ‘But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect’.
