I love Term 4… and not just because the Christmas holidays can be heard jingling in the background!

I love the way in which we get to celebrate the amazing achievements of our students. I love the Presentation events and the farewells to Year 12. I love the way in which the College community can come together and honour the students’ application to all areas of school life.

This year brings some changes to how we celebrate due to the restrictions that keep us all safe. For most of our events we are unable to host parents on-site, but do trust that you find watching the “Livestream” events with your child a great opportunity to connect and celebrate as a family.

There is an enormous investment of planning going into the final day for Year 12 (20 November). This event will have Year 12 parents in attendance with a letter being sent home soon (if it hasn’t already) with more information.

Our Co-Curricular Presentation Ceremony (15 October) was a great success and all of Years 7 to 12 shared in celebrating the achievements of 221 students receiving 309 awards. These achievements are made for the roar of crowds; the applause of audience and the admiration of peers. In Week 2 the Secondary school was the crowd and we became the audience that these great endeavours deserved.

The Co-Curricular Presentation Ceremony recognises the fullest representation of the Genesis student. It is a blessing from God that we enjoy the greatest of co-curricular opportunities here at our school.
