Stage 2 Design and Technology

Our Year 12 Design and Technology students began the year by identifying a need or challenge which could be solved by manufacturing a product. Over the next three terms, they learnt the necessary skills and spent many hours designing, refining and prototyping their intended outcome. Through sheer hard work and determination, all 18 students successfully completed their own individual high quality product and the collective culmination of their exceptional efforts was proudly displayed at the annual Art Show exhibition. Well done to all students and congratulations to James D 12ABR who achieved the highest overall result and won the subject award.

Lutheran Schools Leadership Conference

On Tuesday 5 December, Concordia College hosted a Lutheran schools leadership conference. The day started with an insightful devotion led by Mr Saegenschnitter, re-enacting the washing of feet by Jesus. The theme of servant leadership was prominent throughout the day, as the Student Leaders from various Lutheran schools bonded and learnt many valuable lessons in leadership that will no doubt be applied in their roles over the coming academic year.

Year 12 Student Valedictory Dinner

The Valedictory Dinner was a beautiful way to farewell our Year 12 Class of 2017. The Dinner is a wonderfully informal occasion, with all exams and assessments finally completed, the Year 12s and their teachers gather for a final meal to celebrate, reminisce and laugh about the times they’ve spent together, as well as chatting over future plans. The Action Leaders beautified The Suaviter as a dining hall and the students were farewelled with speeches by Mr Adrian Bright, as well as the “Story of the Class of 2017” by Mr David Serotzki. Student Leaders Issy Brideson and Kenji Ireland responded on behalf of the students. Thanks must go to Mrs Angela Warrick and Mrs Sandra Hein for their efforts in organizing many aspects of the event, to the many parents who volunteered their time to help with the food, and to the Action Leaders for their efforts in organizing such an event for their peers. The Valedictory Dinner is a fantastic way to farewell our students as they move into the next phase of their lives.
