More than 70 teens had an opportunity to hang out with their friends, enjoy outdoor games and a special worship program last Friday evening. Most were from non-Adventist backgrounds.
“Wired” is a new activity organised by the chaplains and staff at Wahroonga Adventist School and local church youth. It is all about establishing connections between the school and local church communities. It is hoped this will establish a foundation where the students will maintain their connection with the church communities as they get older.
The Concept of “Wired” is about our students having a safe place outside of school hours on a Friday night where they can connect more within our school family and invite their "out of school" friends to a chapel like program.
Wired into our school, Wired into the community and Wired into God.
Our next ‘WIRED’ Friday night will be at the end of our Middle School Week of Worship in the beginning of Term 2.

Clean Up Australia Day
Last Friday, 2nd March, both Year 1 classes helped to clean the school grounds as Sunday was Clean Up Australia Day! We learnt about the importance of keeping our environment clean and how easy it is to be responsible for our own rubbish! A big thank you to our parent helper, Jenny Sharkie who organised some gloves and bags and was happy to talk to the classes about recycling too! (Mrs Sedgman & Miss Fuller)
"We picked up rubbish to keep our school tidy which made me feel happy"! (Lillie O).
