Principal's Message (5 May, 2023)
I pray that you are now feeling like you have settled into the term well. My observation is that the students have quickly focused on learning, participating in the many activities in our College and striving to do their best. As I teach my own classes, I often experience just how engaged the students are and their desire to participate in the learning process. This is a credit to everyone in our community and the fantastic preparation that Term 1 provided, including our camps, extracurricular activities and pastoral care times together. I am also incredibly thankful to God for his continued guidance in our wonderful College.
In the last edition of our newsletter, I highlighted that Open Day will be next Wednesday, 10 May from 1.45pm. I am really looking forward to being a part of showcasing our College and all the opportunities it provides. More than that, Open Day gives us a great opportunity to highlight the strong relational community that we are. Please encourage your friends, Alumni and previous families to come along. We are really looking forward to hosting you!
I have also been working with Mr Adam Borgas, Head of Junior School, as we meet the many new families starting Foundation in 2024. It is an honour to spend time meeting and getting to know those existing families sending another child to HTLC or those who are joining our College for the first time. If you know anyone who may be interested in joining our Community, we would love to meet with them for a conversation and tour.
I pray that as this week concludes, God would continue to guide us throughout Term 2. I trust you will have a great weekend.
Mr James Phillips, Principal
