Secondary School Highlights

 How could we start the first News & Events for 2021 without celebrating Matilda? We are blessed to have such depth of talent amongst our creatives. The outstanding performances are the cumulative work of many over eighteen months. My thanks go to staff for their above and beyond efforts; for students for their QPAC-standard performance and support work; and to parents for partnering with the College in such an important community event. 

 At Genesis, our Mission Statement includes ‘develops a passion for lifelong learning’, with the intent of service. I cannot think of a better example of this than Matilda. We grow in knowledge and skills for a purpose. We don’t just learn about acting or singing or logistics or lighting or props to just sit an exam. We do so for a purpose: to use the knowledge and skills to make a useful difference and to enhance life for others. All of those who contributed to the amazing success of Matilda gave of their time and talents to entertain us. At Genesis we Grow to Give. Indeed, from this year we are describing our purpose as Secondary students as, to Grow, Give and Connect with Purpose. 

 The year has already seen a number of very successful events – the Dedication Service acknowledged our thankfulness to God for His provision; the Leadership Commissioning Service focussed our attention on our collective vision; and the Swimming Carnivals celebrated a tremendous sense of House spirit. I am very much looking forward to the Cross Country on Thursday 11 March and expect to see all in attendance. 

 What a great start to 2021!
