From the Principal

Hello dear families and welcome to Term 4!

Student Convention went well at the end of last term, with many Seabrook students again rejoicing and praising God for the gifts and blessings He has bestowed upon them. Our prayer is that the students don’t just leave these experiences at Convention, but continue to use their many God-given gifts and talents to glorify God and extend His Kingdom. I trust that we are all back fresh from holidays, and ready to do our best to overcome whatever challenges God places before us in this last term of 2017.

As part of the change from Seabrook Christian School to Australian Christian College, there have been renovations happening at all 3 of our campuses over the holiday break. At Hobart, the renovations in one classroom are basically complete, with just a few minor equipment fittings still to go. At Launceston and Somerset, we are just waiting on the new furniture to arrive, which will be a few weeks away.

As the changes in the school continue to occur, I encourage all of us to remember that the anchor of our lives cannot be in the material things around us, our homes, our clothes, our schools, our jobs, or our possessions. As the people of God, our anchor is the hope we have in our LORD, Christ Jesus. Our LORD is the same yesterday, today and forever. His mercies are new EVERY morning. He makes a way for us in the wilderness and makes streams for us in the wasteland.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…”
Hebrews 6:19

With the change in format to the newsletter, we ask that families who haven’t already provided the school with an email address please do so. It is our intention to move to a completely digital format starting in 2018.

Blessings to you all in His Name,

Jared Khu
Principal

Staffing Changes

Mrs Katie Lachman is filling in as our campus cleaner for the next few weeks while our regular cleaner, Mr Bipan Bhujel, is overseas. Thank you, Katie, for taking on this vital role.

Mr Graeme Cresswell has accepted a position with another company and has therefore handed in his notice of resignation. Mr Cresswell has been serving our school community since February 2015, diligently transporting our students to and from school, as well as accompanying many of our excursions (not just driving the bus, but joining in and assisting the teachers). Mr Cresswell’s experience and professionalism have been a great blessing to us, particularly his expertise in maintaining buses and planning bus routes and timetables. Mr Cresswell’s last day is Wednesday 25th October.

Mr Cresswell, we wish you the very best in all your future endeavours, may the Lord bless you as you have blessed us, you will be greatly missed!
