From the Principal's Desk
Dear families and friends
Where will your child be in 2030? An interesting question as 2030 seems so far away, but that is when our current Year 1 students will graduate. What will the world be like in 2030? What skills will your child need? More and more it is the ‘soft skills’ of communication, team work, problem solving and creativity that are the focus of future work along with an attitude of resilience.
As Zig Ziglar identified, “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” This is true in sport, in life and at school. It is an attitude of “giving it your best” that counts, not just the abilities that we are born with, and it is this attitude that we seek to develop in our students at Mountain View Adventist College.
I invite you to work in partnership with us as we share a learning journey – a journey that is about learning more than facts.
A learning journey that doesn’t just transport students from one year to another.
A learning journey that transforms each child as they give learning “their best”.
Mrs Julia Heise
Congratulations to Naomi Benjamin and Akano Amuda who both achieved Band 6’s in their 2018 HSC exams. Akano achieved in the top 10% of the state in PDHPE and Legal Studies and is studying law this year. Naomi achieved in the top 10% in Ancient History and emphasised the importance of independent study at home when speaking to our students in the Convocation Chapel at the beginning of the year.
January 30 saw our inaugural Convocation Chapel where the whole school came together to commence the year with God. As Junior, Middle and Senior School students and staff were dedicated and encouraged to uphold the values of the College, there was a positive spirit of community and belonging.
