Ending the year on high

Ending the year on a high.

Redeemer Luther College, Biloela, had its final day of the 2019 academic calendar on December 11, and has finished the year really strongly across the entire campus.

We continue to make to most of all learning opportunities, mixed in with a little celebration of course as we head into the Christmas period.

Within the Junior Primary, we have seen Year 1 working very hard on writing, rehearsing and then delivering their very own Christmas play to families and friends.

The students were responsible for both the story and costuming and were so excited to share it with their loved ones on stage in Banksia Place on Tuesday.

Years 3 and 4 have been busy continuing with their learning right up until the end of year.

In their Christian Studies unit of work in Term 4, Year 3 studied the significance of church buildings and of the symbols that we see in and around them.

They created their own church buildings replicating what they have learnt.

In Year 4, the students continue to participate in their normal Literacy learning activities albeit wearing Santa hats and on tinsel covered desks!

We saw our 2019 Year 6 class have their graduation last Thursday in what was once again, a touching ceremony that celebrated the gift that each of these students is.

This ceremony was catered by the College Catering Club who did an amazing job under the guidance of Miss Keegan.

The food was memorable and the punch station simply outstanding.

The Year 5 class have been busy applying for 2020 Leadership roles.

It was wonderful to see so many students put themselves forward for leadership positions, and the speeches they presented were well-considered and delivered with pride.

The College is in good hands in 2020 that’s for sure.

The Secondary School has been equally busy, with our Year 7 and 9 classes for 2020 participating in a Stem Challenge opportunity during transition day, and our Year 9 and 10 Agricultural Science class completing their poultry unit by having a blind tasting to explore the difference in taste between free range and caged eggs after cooking them in a variety of ways.

We have completed our first full year of Year 11 here at the College under the new QCE system.

Our flexible delivery program has been an outstanding success with the two students who utilised it gaining exceptional results in the subjects studied.

In 2019 we offered Specialist Mathematics, Chemistry, Legal Studies and Modern History via this method.

In 2020, we expand that to also offer Ancient History and Psychology.

It is an exciting time for the College and we look forward to seeing what awaits us in 2020.
