This is the final school week of formal lessons for Year 12s. They have been heavily engaged in finishing off assignments and final preparation for the upcoming examinations.
Meanwhile, to alleviate some stress, Mr Kleidon has organised some lunchtime sports games for the Year 12 students to compete against the staff. Netball, basketball, touch football and volleyball games were being played during their final week at school. In most games the Year 12s were closely matched by the enthusiasm of the staff.
We wish them all the best leading up to the end of their high school education here at Concordia College and hope they enjoy success with their subject results. We pray they remain safe at all times, especially during this particularly busy stage of their lives.
Since the commencement of Term 1, the Year 12 students have been involved in Community Service in the Unley area - an initiative that has seen our Year 12 cohort Engage, Achieve and Serve the community of Unley. All Year 12 students are involved in one or a number of activities including: afternoon music performances at aged care facilities, stobie pole art, seed propagation, letterbox drops to aid community awareness of Unley events, seedling planting, gnome painting and delivery to residents who have planted their verge, and consultation about Unley Council programs.
Students have seen the benefits they can give back to our local community by assisting in a number of activities. Unley Council have been integral in developing the program to suit the needs of the local area and the interests of our students.
On a number of occasions we have had calls from members of the public positively commenting on the enthusiasm and contribution our students are making to the Unley area.

Each year our Valedictory Service provides an opportunity to formally farewell our Year 12 students and wish them every blessing as they conclude their classes and prepare for final examinations.
