As you know, we are reluctant to engage in political debate and respect each family’s political views. However, with the upcoming election, the Adventist Schools Australia office has been working together with community groups to get a clear understanding of the implications of the upcoming election.
We encourage you to take the time to explore this issue for yourself before you make your decision on how to vote. Below are links and information received from ASA and the Christian Schools Alliance which will help provide clear information on which to base informed decisions. With this, you will gain an understanding of what Nunawading Christian College will look like if we lose the religious freedom we currently have. It is important to protect our fundamental values and beliefs which are at the core of our school culture.

Welcome to our new NCC Newsletter format! We’ve tried to take into account as much feedback from the parent surveys as possible and we hope you love the changes.
Some of the improvements are:
Thank you again for your continued feedback about our Newsletter. There will be more improvements and upgrades in the coming weeks. If you have any feedback about this edition or future editions, simply click the link at the bottom of this newsletter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All parents, teachers and students in Adventist schools are invited to complete a survey to find out how staff and student wellbeing can be improved in our school. The survey will ask you to rate your views about your school.
How long will it take?
All surveys (staff, student, and parent) will take about 30 minutes to complete. However, time does vary, with some individuals taking less time and others taking more time.
Is it important for everyone to complete the survey?
To obtain an accurate picture of staff, student and parent views, it is important for as many of the selected participants to take part as possible.
Our Explorers had such a wonderful time celebrating what their mums mean to them. In the lead up to Mother’s Day the children:
This week we have also explored our country’s Indigenous culture in the lead up to Sorry Day on May 26th. We have read stories about our nation’s first people, used dot art to decorate boomerangs and begun work on our collaborative Aboriginal flag, focusing on the significance of each element. We look forward to deepening our understandings over the coming weeks.
What a wonderful time we had preparing for our special Mother’s Day evening last Wednesday night! During the week leading up to the evening, the children made pot pouri bags and necklaces for their mothers and other special women in their lives, which provided lots of opportunities for exploring different smells and textures. The day before our special night, we discussed what food the children would like to have for their mums to eat, and the next day they helped to make jelly and chocolate muffins. When the big event finally came, we were having so much fun doing face painting, nail painting, decorating biscuits and making bracelets, that we forgot to take any photos! But we trust that all our mums enjoyed this special time with their child, as much as we enjoyed preparing for it.
This week we have also had fun learning about motion, through lots of marble play and marble paintings. Next week we are looking forward to a special visit from a Bunnings person to plant some new bulbs in our garden, and to joining the Explorers for National Simultaneous Storytime.
On Friday last week, Nunawading Christian College Early Learning and Primary students continued an annual tradition at NCC, our Mother’s Day Chapel.
Each class prepared a heart-warming item for the many mums who were able to attend the service. We hope all our NCC mums were blessed by the service and were spoiled on Sunday.
Thank you to all the wonderful mothers in our community for all you do in our learning community. See the gallery below for all of the photos from Mother’s Day chapel.
Special thanks to Mrs Horsley for all her time and effort in organising this annual event.
We now have logos to represent each of our school values. The symbol for each of the value logos has been taken from the school shield. This will provide the logos will dual meaning. Along with these, the PB4L team has chosen a Bible verse that encompasses each of the values. The Bible verses will be displayed in the Secondary areas and the logos will be displayed in the Primary areas.
This term our value is Responsibility, and the logo is wheat.
The wheat symbol shows us that it is our responsibility to grow academically and spiritually, and we encourage the students to take responsibility for their actions.
The chosen Bible verse for Responsibility is “No matter what you do, work at it with all your might.”
Nunawading Christian College recently hosted our sister schools, Edinburgh College and Heritage College for the annual Adventist Schools Victoria Cross Country event.
NCC students showed great sportsmanship and managed to place in a few age groups.
Well done, students, and thank you for displaying our Nunawading Christian College values throughout the event.
Last week, NCC Secondary School celebrated their annual Week of Worship program. The week consisted of daily worship services and a host of special events to honour the Christian ethos which underpins everything we do here at NCC. Most specifically, we seek to honour and bring glory to God throughout this week. This year, we were blessed each day with students sharing personal testimonies, special items and praise music. Our speaker, Pr. Chris Stanley, presented a series of talks based on Chris Pratt’s Nine Rules for life, given at the 2018 Generation Award.
On Thursday, students and staff attended the annual social at Caribbean Rollerama, which is always a highlight. And on Friday morning, NCC Student Representative Council served a pancake breakfast for students.
Our Week of Worship program is student-led and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our students for leading out in all aspects of the program this week. Thank you also to Pr Chris for challenging and inspiring our students. Finally, thank you to our Chaplains, Lili and Jamie for your leadership and mentorship of students throughout the week.
Language lessons at NCC always go beyond speaking. Students are regularly involved in days celebrating the culture and exploring various forms of communication in the focus country. As part of their immersion program, Year 10 French students recently went to watch a delicious French political comedy – Panic at the Ministry of Education – presented by the Melbourne French Theatre. Students experienced a “LIVE FRENCH THEATRE PERFORMANCE”; which enhanced their learning experiences in their linguistic studies.
Last Friday, Our Year 9 and 10 Home Economics students completed a practical assignment and also a wonderful service opportunity, catering for our Primary mothers at the Mother’s Day chapel.
Students designed the menu, prepared the food, plated and served their recipes at the event for our Primary mothers.
Thank you, students, for your hard work serving our NCC community – you did a great job!
Today was a casual dress day in the Secondary School and the theme was Pyjamas. Students were encouraged to wear their pyjamas to school and make a Gold Coin donation to help support the Year 12 sponsor child from Light of Hope orphanage in Cambodia.
