Principal's Message (24 February, 2023)
It was a pleasure to install our Student Leadership Team across Junior School, Middle School and Senior School at assembly on Monday. In Lutheran schools, we often talk about service, and I thank each of these newly installed student leaders for taking up this opportunity and serving the student body in this way. Student voice is vital, and our student leaders play an important part in making our school community a wonderful environment for both learning and relationship.
There has been much anticipation for the HTLC Fair today! As I have previously outlined, we highly value being connected as a community. Tonight is another opportunity to be a community together, having time together. I extend my thanks to our Parents, Teachers and Friends Association who have planned and organised this event, along with all of our community who are supporting it by coming along and inviting friends. I look forward to connecting with you this evening.
You would have likely heard the news that HTLC was named as the Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly Sports School of the Year. It is lovely to be recognised in this way, and reflects the willingness of our students to engage in the wide and varied opportunities we have, as well as our staff and volunteers who make these a possibility.
As a College, we aspire to nurture the unique gifts, talents and qualities each student has, and while for some students it is in sport, others pursue their gifts in other areas. The important thing is that we all play a part in encouraging and affirming young people do their best in whatever their pursuit.
I look forward to you joining us this evening for the HTLC Fair and pray that you have a wonderful weekend!
Mr James Phillips, College Principal
