    Macarthur Adventist School

    Macarthurs Adventist College (MAC) is again advocating for a School Crossing Zone at the front of our College. In the last few years the College has grown exponentially, and with that growth has come increased traffic during drop off and pick up times, and an increased risk to the safety of our students as they cross both Victoria and Atchison Roads in the morning and afternoon.

    The school is working diligently to have a crossing installed to help keep students and families safe. MAC’s Principal recently met with a local MP to advocate for a school
    crossing zone. They are asking all families to please sign a petition to show support for the needed crossing zone. https://bit.ly/3Paxb1B

    With a good mix of our staff members hailing from both New South Wales and Queensland, there has always been much good humoured rivalry at the College in the lead up to State of Origin each year, but the excitement has gone to the next level this year as we are incredibly proud and excited to share that Macarthur has been selected to take part in the Ampol Little Origin Series.

    The wonderful Mrs Maua of 5JM entered our College for the selection process, sharing about our College values of respect, responsibility, resilience and attitude as part of the application. She made quite the impact and four of our Primary students now have the opportunity of a lifetime to run out onto the field at half-time during State of Origin on to take part in the Little Origin match.

    As selected participants, our students will have the chance to take part in an official NRL clinic hosted by NRL legends and gain access to a bespoke NRL League Stars learning session, experience a stadium tour, and have the amazing opportunity to play on the field at half time at a real Origin game, representing either the Blues or Maroons. As a winning school, we will also receive a $5000 monetary grant.

     

     
    A huge congratulations to Losi from 3AK and Isaac from 4JC who will play wearing the Blues jersey and McKenzie from 3AG and Timothy from 4CT who will play wearing the Maroons jersey. As a College community we are also incredibly proud of Mrs Maua for her initiative in entering the College into the competition and giving our students such a memorable experience that I have no doubt they will remember for the rest of their lives.

    Let’s make sure that you tune in this coming Wednesday 8th of June for State of Origin to see our students in action in what will be an unforgettable evening.

    Congratulations to SASA chaplain, Nick Kross, who received his ordination certificate. He is now officially called Pastor Nick. He’s a great communicator, chaplain, and blessing to Sydney Adventist School Auburn. This is a wonderful achievement, and we pray that God will continue to lead and guide Pastor Nick and his family as he serves in our community. ”

    May 2nd was mufti day and our super heroes were out in force to raise funds to eradicate homelessness. More than 116,000 people are homeless on any given night in Sydney and SASA raised $314.25 which is going towards Wesley Mission to support those less fortunate.

    Wahroonga Adventist College

    Year 7 students from our Wahroonga School enjoyed an excursion to the Royal Easter Show yesterday this year. The Show was a great opportunity to explore agriculture and food, topics being studied in Mandatory Technology.

    Hands on learning helps develop critical thinking and analytical skills which will continue to be beneficial throughout the students’ lives. These are the skills imperative to further success in life.
     

    Mountain View Adventist College Kicks of Term 2 Strong

    At the beginning of Term 2, Mountain View Adventist College (MVAC) hit the ground running with their Week of Worship, centring on the theme POWER UP! This theme challenges students to spend time “exploring how God is the ultimate source of power, how an identity with God is the most powerful identity we can have, how our faith needs to be powered up in difficult times, and how we can make a difference in our community”, says Pastor Raul, Senior Chaplain.

    In addition, a major highlight so far has been the Motion Program, connecting MVAC students with the local church. This program runs outside of school hours and it’s an opportunity for all students to be involved, come together and fellowship, and have fun in worship and praise. – Julia Heise, Principal
