Revelations September 4 2014 HEAD OF SENIOR SCHOOL Mr Stewart Ross MOCK – THE TRIAL CONTINUES Last Friday the Mock Trial team competed against Coonabarabran High School in the 2nd elimination round. The team consisted of Tom Nobes and Maddison Crowe as barristers, Sophie Jones as solicitor, Rebecca Cole and Laura Van Uum as witnesses and David Mackender as magistrate’s clerk. The case was a civil case in which we claimed damages and an injunction against the Defendant, Burwood Council for private nuisance. We adduced evidence to show that the roots of three figs trees which were planted and maintained by Burwood Council were causing us loss of enjoyment of our land. We claimed that the fig tree roots had caused damage to our brick fence, walkway and verandah. The Defence argued that they had responded promptly to our complaints and taken all reasonable steps to stop the nuisance. They also argued that we had caused damage to the root blocker that they had installed. We managed to convince the magistrate that the council had caused interference with our enjoyment of our land by causing us great stress and inconvenience. We also won the important skills side of the trial 265-259 points. This means that we move into the 3rd elimination round, one of 16 schools out of the 185 in the competition this year. YEAR 11 PRELIMINARY EXAMINATIONS The Year 11 Preliminary Course winds up this term and examinations commence next week. We have had to change the original schedule published in our calendar for these exams. Chemistry will be the first exam on Monday afternoon and students do not have to come to school on that Monday if they don’t do Chemistry. Tuesday is a normal school day with some students involved in ISA Athletics. Teachers I am sure will be having revision lessons. Students are expected to be at school whether they have an exam or not on the following days. HSC MUSIC & VISUAL ARTS Examiners from the BOSTES will be here next SPRING FAIR UPDATE NOTE TO PARENTS • Purchase your wristbands from Mrs Keogh (Junior School) and Mrs Wade (Senior School) save yourselves the rush! • Please let your year stall holder know if you can help on the day of fair! The list is in the VIM and REVs. Please contact Melanie Geyer [email protected] or Catriona Roach [email protected] if you are unsure of anything. • Please sell your raffle tickets and return to school. The prizes are fantastic! • Junior school children should be colouring in madly for our colouring in competition! Hand them in to Mrs Keogh when you’re finished. • Please hand in your gorgeous ‘lamb’ help required note, we need as many lovely parents as possible to help on the day. • Any parents out there who are able to contribute to the pavlova stall ([email protected]), Cake Stall ([email protected]) or Treasure and Book Stall ([email protected]) your help would be greatly appreciated. • We still require parents with an RSA for the bar and students who are willing to do a 15 minute stint in dunking machine. Thank you to all, we are looking forward to a fantastic fair! The Spring Fair Committee week to examine both Music I and II students who, I know, have been honing their pieces over the last few weeks. Tom Morris had to travel to Sydney this week to perform his music and by all accounts did well. We wish the other students all the best with their performances. The art major works were sent to Sydney this week for marking. I know that these students are pleased that they are completed giving them more time to devote to revision. FAST FACT We’re all pretty clued up about Twitter, (well I’m not) but what about a degree in it? At Leeds Trinity University, you’ll learn about the significance and philosophical implications of social media, as well as taking part in a 12week work experience placement in a digital agency. It’s a hands-on degree and with a staggering 91% employment or further study rate after university, perhaps one to watch. Thought : Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34 TREASURE & BOOKS STALL Please bring in your ‘treasures’ and books to be sold at the Spring Fair. Stall coordinators are looking for past family treasures including books, records – yes, the vinyl ones!, prints that might need a new wall to hang on, children’s toys that are still happy enough to go to a new generation. All saleable items can be left on the Student Liaison Office verandah in the corner closest to carpark. These donations will be cleared away each day.

Tony Card “Therefore just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.” (Romans 5:18, NRSV) As we come to the end of our series looking at humankind being made in the image of God we conclude by looking back to the beginning of our relationship with God whilst at the same time looking to the future. Paul reminds us of the consequences of Adam’s sin - that we are all tainted by it and are all victims of it. The consequence of this sin is that we are condemned. We are all essentially ‘dead men walking’. But Paul doesn’t leave it there, for sin does not have the last word. Paul encourages us with the reminder that Jesus’ act of sacrifice and resurrection has not only reversed the impact of Adam’s sin but has restored us to being reflections of God’s image. Because of our faith and trust in Jesus God no longer sees us as sinful creatures but as pure expressions of his wholeness and love. This is a blessing that we cannot take lightly. We should not be complacent about our forgiveness and our future with Christ. His sacrifice does not give us licence to keep on living life our own way and then accept his ‘get out of gaol free’ card. We have a responsibility to live our life reflecting God’s image to all around us. We don’t receive a gift and then leave it unopened until moments before our death. We want to enjoy the benefit of that gift now and into the future. It should be the same for the gift that God has given us…we should open it now and enjoy its benefits now and into the future. With every blessing, Rev. Tony Card Thought for the week: ‘If, because of the one man’s trespass, death exercised dominion through that one, much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness exercise dominion in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.’ (Romans 5:17,NRSV) Operation Christmas Child drawing to a close We have now collected six things to go into Christmas boxes. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so generously. I am sure that we will surpass last years’ tally of 213 boxes. If you still wish to donate items then they will be gratefully received. We will be holding a packing day on Saturday 11th October from 2pm in the Bickerdike to pack what we have received. Next week we are focusing our chapel collection on raising the money needed to send the boxes overseas. Freight costs $9 per box so we are looking to raise in excess of $1800. We have about $200 from cash donations so far so there is a way to go. If every student brought $4 to chapel next week then we would comfortably meet this target for about U15s Football Team into Final the same price as a cup of coffee. Confirmations As we were unable to proceed with confirmations at the College this year, the Dean of All Saints’ Cathedral, the Very Reverend Anne Wentzel has invited interested students to make their Confirmation at the Cathedral on Sunday, 30th November. Preparation classes will be held at the Cathedral commencing on Saturday 11th October at 3pm. Enquiries should be directed to Rev. Tony on 6332 7370 or [email protected] Registrations need to be completed by Wednesday, 8th October. A Father’s Day blessing It’s Father’s Day this Sunday. Here is a prayer of blessing I found that you may want to pray for your father. God our Father, in your wisdom and love you made all things. Bless these men, that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honour them always with a spirit of profound respect. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen Is s th his yo ou? ? The U15 Football Team made the final with a huge win against Churches United in the semi-final last Saturday. Ashleigh James scored three goals, Jakiya Whitfeld two goals, Phoebe Reynolds and Sophie Chirgwin one goal each. Ashleigh was player of the match. The College is looking forward to as many people as possible coming along and supporting both the U15 and U17 teams in their finals this coming Saturday, 6 September at Proctor Park at 1:30am.
