        Dear Parents, Staff and Students   It is hard to believe that we will farewell the Year 12 students tomorrow.

Not only has their final year gone very quickly (although some of them may dispute that statement), but their whole 13 years at school seems to have passed in a flash. Tomorrow I will make reference to 33 students who have completed their entire schooling at Coomera Anglican College. That number is the largest number we have had…

      Dear Parents, Staff and Students From my office this week I have heard a number of Celebration Evening rehearsals with many excited young children coming and going to the Ivan Gibbs Centre to practise their moment on stage. I love this time of year when the enthusiasm seems to exude from every pore of many youngsters as they fine tune their singing, dancing and movement onto and off the stage. Credit must go to the diligent teachers who create such great opportunities for each child to shine throughout these Celebration Events. Tomorrow we will see the culmination of all the…

      Over the September holidays, I was privileged to work with the Jazz legend James Morrison, alongside 15 or so other talented musicians as well as James’ band.

        Dear Parents, Staff and Students On Tuesday evening this week we completed the last of the House BBQ and Worship services for 2017. By all reports the Lane House Worship was a lovely occasion and highlighted the specific character of Lane House and its students. It was particularly pleasing for those present to hear from Year 4 teacher, Tom Batty about perseverance. He reminded everybody that it is not needed so much on easy days but rather on the tough days, and that friendship can be one of the greatest gifts to inspire us to keep going when we…
