It is with a heavy heart that I write this newsletter as I will be saying goodbye to our beloved Mountain View Adventist College at the end of this year. This school is unique and a special blessing to all who learn and work here. The decision to move to leading a sister Adventist School in Sydney that is growing into a full Prep to Year 12 was not easy as I have felt so welcomed here.
Your support has been wonderful, and I will really miss being a part of the Mountain View community. Your children, the staff and I have been on a wonderful journey over the past two years and I know this journey will continue under new leadership in 2021. Above all else, God will remain at the centre of all we do to grow the hearts and minds of our students.
On a brighter note, today we celebrated Limb Difference Awareness Week by raising awareness and funds. Thank you to one of our parents, Mrs Leslie, and our Wellbeing Coordinator, Mrs Jensen, for starting a new tradition at our College.

Limb Difference Awareness Week
This week around Australia is Limb Difference Awareness Week. We are so privileged to have two students at our school who live with limb difference: Parker and Callie. Staff and students were encouraged to wear a sock on one of their limbs and make a gold coin donation to the Aussie Hands organisation. Students from Prep to Year 11 engaged in a variety of activities.
Callie and Parker were able to share with us via video (found on MVAC Community FB page) that they enjoy playing with their friends, learning and even with a limb difference feel very much a part of the Mountain View family. We are excited to be on this journey with both Parker and Callie's family and look forward to raising more awareness about Limb Difference.
