Secondary News & Highlights

Dear Parents,

I’d like to give a very heartfelt thank you to one and all for their support and encouragement throughout the year. I feel embraced, encouraged and enabled by students, teachers, support staff and parents.

Genesis is an amazing school: a great place to learn, to belong, to grow. It is a champion school of both wide and high opportunity. Because of the opportunities, support and nurturing we provide our Genesis students – your children – are doing things like:

  • representing Australia in a range of sports
  • being recognised as one of the Top 30 achievers in the Queensland Year 12 academic results
  • rowing like champions and stunning the “Grammars”
  • displaying award-winning art in the New South Wales Art Gallery
  • winning swimming gold at Nationals and are on pathways to the Olympics
  • creating films that land in the top 30 for BUFTA
  • winning national dance competitions
  • and space does not allow this list to go on…..!

But all of this happens because we work together; enjoy ourselves; and, in the process develop character. All of this, under the gracious hand of our loving God.

As I look back on 2019 my encouragement to all our Genesis students is to take hold of the opportunities that Genesis Christian College provides you.

As this year’s Year 12 Valedictorian said:

Contribute as much as you can, try as hard as you can. Go to every carnival, performance and sports event with all your friends.

Because next year, it won’t be about what you achieved in 2019, it will be who you achieved it with.

I leave you with a quote that I always hold on to by none other than Drake himself, “sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you the importance of the destination.”


2020 begins with the Launch Day activities and letters have been sent in regard to this. Please check the Genesis App for details.

I wish one and all a blessed Christmas when we are reminded of the great news of “God is with us”. I pray that all might come to understand that more fully this Christmas. A safe, and well deserved holiday to all.
