Thank you to all those parents and friends of the EAC community who joined us at St Mary’s Anglican Church recently, as we celebrated Foundation Day. Our Chapel Service was a wonderful celebration of all that makes our College such an outstanding community. From inducting our new Student Representative Council, celebrating the incredible success of our swimmers at the NCIS Swimming Championship, to being entertained by the remarkable secondary school band and praying together to give thanks for all the blessing and gifts we share each day, it was a fantastic way to acknowledge all that the founders and pioneers have created and the legacy that we all share in today.
When the students returned to College following the Chapel Service, the secondary students were involved in a number of House based activities which culminated in the staff and senior student tug-o-war house challenge, of which Walker won!
After lunch all of the students from Kindergarten to Year 12 were involved in the Foundation Day Mini-Fair. Students in the Secondary school coordinated and ran a series of stalls, events and experiences and the Primary students were invited to come along and try the food, games, activities and challenges that were on offer. Fundraising on the day gathered over $1100 which will be donated to a charity selected by the newly elected SRC at their first meeting in the coming days. It was a fantastic afternoon and a great way to cap off a tremendous celebration of our school.
