Visitors flock to Christian College
WHITSUNDAY Christian College was inundated with visitors from across the state last week as part of the college’s commitment to personal, physical and academic development.
Year 6 and secondary boys had a special visit from AFL Queensland and some Gold Coast Suns players.
The students were put through a series of drills, taught some fundamentals of the game and were given time to ask the players some tricky questions. The students enjoyed the lessons and principal Nathan McDonald said there were some great skills on show. “As a college, we promote sport and physical activity with all our students and I really appreciate it when other members of the community assist us in this important area of development. It was great to see our students having fun while participating in sport,” he said.
Girls from years 7-12 had a visit from independent sin- ger/songwriter Vita Adams.
Ms Adams is passionate about music, young people and wanting to change the world.
Ms Adams delivers a sassy and interactive radio program designed for girls to uncover what it means to “Be Bold, Be Beautiful”.
“Through our [Whitsunday Christian College] pastoral care program, we seek to help our female students develop a strong self-esteem and look for opportunities for special guests to promote this at our college,” Mr McDonald said.
During her time with the Whitsunday Christian College, Ms Adams taught the female students to understand the power of words and therefore the names that they allow others to pin on them, sometimes those which end up enslaving them.
She discussed how to let go of those names, and helped the girls to go away with two new names: bold and Bella [beautiful].
