From the Principal's Desk
Good afternoon Family and Friends and welcome to our first full blown eNewsletter. As technology advances, it can be challenging in keeping up with it all. From this newsletter on, we will no longer be issuing the paper printed material and instead will be using technology to keep you up to date with what is happening at Mountain View Adventist College. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Mountain-View-Adventist-College-1403488386382554/) or frequently visit the College's web page at https://mvac.adventist.edu.au/. We do hope that you find the eNewsletter more easily accessible and that you enjoy reading it!
Sunday afternoon of last week, we had our annual iNight concert. It was probably the most enjoyable night I’ve had in a long time. By 5pm, the hall was filling up and food was on the go. At the end of the evening, after expenses, we raised over $11,000 for our Overseas Mission Trip. Thank you to all parents and family members that contributed to this cause and encouraged your children in their performances.
I’ve had many comments from families that it was the best ever concert and I agree with them - so thank you all for making it possible. We now have enough money to buy 2 water tanks (we were buying only 1) and being able to purchase $1,000 worth of Science taps to take over with the group to Vanuatu. The students when they get over there, not only paint and build, they clean and repair and bond with the students at the school they are visiting.
By the end of the trip, they will have made firm friends for life with the local community and bonded more deeply with each other. This trip every year - the students tell us - is the highlight of their schooling, so with your generosity, you are helping make this happen.
I pray you all have a wonderful weekend and come back to us safely next week.
iNight this year was the largest fundraiser that we have had, raising over $11,000. For more details about the event, please click https://mvac.adventist.edu.au/blog/record-breaking-inight/. Please also enjoy the photos below from the night.
