We are happy to report that our Mufti Day on Tuesday on both campuses raised $4,022.10. This includes $546.65 raised by Year 4 students through their bake sale held on Tuesday. Thank you to our College Community for digging deep to help the farmers. Money will be donated to "Buy a Bale".

Open Day - Kellyville Campus

Our Castle Hill Open Day last Sunday was a great success, and we would love as many prospective families to join us this Sunday at our Kellyville Open Day. If you have friends or family who are looking for a great start to their child's schooling, let them know about our Open Day. They can register on our website. All current families that recommend a new family will receive a $50 Uniform Shop voucher (paid when new family has commenced at the College). Just let your friends know to mention your name when enrolling. If you recommend two families, then you receive 2 x $50 vouchers, and so on. Our best ambassadors are our families in our College Community!

Enrolment for 2019

Please be reminded that under the terms of the College enrolment policy, families must provide at least one full term's notice of withdrawal. As we are now planning for 2019 it would be appreciated if you could notify Mrs Kay Reilly (registrar@hills.adventist.edu.au) as soon as possible, and prior to the end of Term 3, if your child is not returning to the College next year.

Premier's Reading Challenge

This is the final week of the Premier’s Reading Challenge. If you have signed up this year, please have all of your books entered online by Friday 31 August.

School Banking - Junior School

Just a reminder that Tuesday is School Banking day and students should bring in their weekly deposit on that day. If your child has lost their book, they can bring their money to school in a sealed envelope with a note on the next school banking day. They will be issued with a replacement. - Michelle Cicurel, School Banking Parent Representative

Kindergarten Student's Kind Gesture

We would like to share with you some lovely news from one of our Kindergarten students on the Kellyville Campus. Zaara's parents recently wrote to her class teacher, Mrs Weslake (shared with permission):

Kindy Maths Fun

Mrs Weslake's Kindergarten class have been learning about money in Mathematics. Students used Australian coins to buy and sell items in their classroom stores. They were responsible for making purchases, recording information and providing change. Students had a fantastic time exploring how fun maths can be!

World of Maths

As part of this semester’s work, we invited the World of Maths Roadshow to visit our College on 20 August. The Roadshow was an ideal opportunity for students from Year 7 and Year 8 to see how Mathematics is applied to some real life situations.

During the program, while working in teams, the students had opportunities to gain insight intro problem solving using various mathematics principles that are part of their curriculum. It was a highly engaging session, which showed the students that Mathematics can be fun!

Junior School & ELC Art Exhibition

Here are a sample of the entries received in our Junior School & ELC Art Exhibition. We were so impressed with the quality of the entries! Winners will be announced soon.
