Well done everyone for a great finish to the year. Please take time to read through our 2019 Year Book that was sent home a couple of weeks ago. Over the next few weeks, information packs will be sent to families to help prepare for a productive 2020. For now, it is time to turn our attention to the holidays and Christmas.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

It is an amazing reality that Jesus came to us as a little baby in a small town far away from the centre of world power and yet became the most powerful person of all-time impacting billions of lives through His words and actions of love. His words and actions while he lived amongst us two thousand years ago gives us a living hope that as we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we are held by the Father as redeemed children of God. At times we all struggle to live as children of God but we know for sure the Holy Spirit is working in us and will transform us ultimately for Heaven to enjoy God’s grace forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.

Thank you for your contribution to Groves Christian College. Raising children and young people is a significant undertaking that is worthy of our time and energy. Thank you for partnering with us in 2019.

I will write to you in January to introduce our 2020 vision, leadership team and new opportunities for our students.

Merry Christmas.

Peace be with you,

Allan Weir
Head of College
