Dear Parents and Carers

College Leaders

During Semester 1 each year, students in Years 3-6 can apply for College Leader. Any students in Years 3 – 6 who have shown that they lead by improving the lives of others at the College through continuous and ongoing service, can apply to be a College Leader.

 

To apply for a position, we ask students to write a letter to Mrs O’Donnell outlining the service that they are already involved in, frequency and impact that this has on the College. Letters can be brought to front Reception.

 

The presentation and announcement of this responsibility will happen twice a year. College leaders will be presented at our Assembly on 22 March this Term.

Calvary Representative Success

Recently Brody Mitchell trialled at the the Pacific District AFL 12-year-old trials. We would like to congratulate him on his selection. Brody has been playing AFL for many years. His hard work and dedication to the sport is to be recognised. All the best to Brody as he prepares for the South Coast Regional trials in a few weeks.

 

We also acknowledge Marisela Hebson who has also qualified for the Pacific District for swimming. Marisela will strive to continue to achieve success at the South Coast Regional swimming trials. Marisela produced some of the best times in her respective events. Congratulations.

2025 Prep Enrolments

We have begun the exciting process of interviewing incoming Prep students for 2025. If you have a child who is Prep aged in 2025 and you have not yet booked your interview, please contact Kath Reid, our College Registrar; kath.reid@calvarycc.qld.edu.au

Parent Group

We know how busy this phase of life is, and the value of doing life with others who are navigating the same situations. We have some Junior School parents who would like to coordinate opportunities for parents to connect, share and support each other. This is what is so special about the community at Calvary.

 

Every Monday, there will be a group of parents who will meet to pray for our College. They will meet after drop-off (8:40am) at the Mango Café. If you are interested, we would love to see you there.

 

If you would like to connect with our parent group, but can’t make this time, please contact parents@calvarycc.qld.edu.au

Yours sincerely 

 

 

Mrs Zoe O'Donnell
Acting Head of Junior School - Carbrook
