From the Leadership Team 

This term at Genesis has been full of outstanding achievements, from individual students and groups, across sports, performing arts and academic pursuits. However, of special note are the wonderful achievements of Kirralee Hayes, selected onto the Australian Paralympic Swim Team to compete at the Tokyo Paralympic Games later this year. Congratulations Kirralee. Also, Ella Smith and Jaeve Proberts, recently competed in Adelaide in a World Cup Simulation Regatta against other Australian representatives and the Australian Olympic Rowing Team, an event held in place of sending athletes to the Junior World Rowing Championships in Bulgaria. Congratulations Ella and Jaeve. At Genesis what makes us excited and proud is seeing our students exploring, and using their God given gifts! 


Inside Tour 

As the end of Term 2 draws to a close, so does the work on Stage 21.1 of our building project in Lower Primary. The first stage of this build will be complete on Friday 25 June with our Year 2 students commencing in this new facility on the first day of Term 3, 19 July.  Jeremy Williamson and I will be conducting an ‘Inside Tour’ of these facilities on Wednesday 21 July from 8:45am-9:30am. If you would like to join the Tour for a special look inside, please register here.

Stage 21.2 of construction will commence on 28 June with an expected completion date in late October.  

Strategic Planning 

The College has been undertaking the exciting process of developing our new Strategic Plan throughout the first half of this year. Can I thank parents who provided the College Board and Leadership Team with feedback earlier this year regarding the future of the College. A further opportunity for feedback will be provided to parents at the commencement of Term 3. The upcoming survey will focus around the draft strategic pillars that have been identified within this new plan. Parents will be asked to comment on the relevance of these key areas. Please keep an eye out for this feedback opportunity early in Term 3. 

QLD Three Day Lockdown
