Uniform Update - Logo Transition

Concordia College and St John's Lutheran School amalgamated in 2016. With the amalgamation, a new logo was created for use by the entire College. At this time, a five-year transition was implemented to enable all students to have the correct uniform with the correct logo by the end of 2020.

However, given the events of 2020 and to assist families, we are extending the transition period until the end of 2021. This means that your child(ren) must be wearing all uniform items with the correct logo by the beginning of 2022. 

New and secondhand uniforms with the correct logo are sold in The School Shop. Old logo uniforms may be dropped off for overseas charity donations.

The School Shop Staff are happy to assist you with any uniform enquiries.

Thank you for your understanding and ensuring that all students wear their uniform with pride.

Director of Community Relations

Planning a move? Please let us know!

Considering a move to another school is a significant decision. We value your family and your being part of our Concordia community. As a College we will always seek to work with you to maintain your positive connection to our community. If you are uncertain about continuing at Concordia next year, in the first instance we invite you to reach out and arrange a time to discuss your situation with either of our Principals - Michael Paech (St John’s Campus) and Paul Weinert (Concordia Campus) - or our Director of Community Relations, Jodie Escott. We would hope that through this conversation we gain a clearer appreciation of your family's specific needs and considerations. 

If you do make a decision to leave Concordia, please be aware that, in line with the Enrolment Policy - if your child is leaving Concordia College at the end of 2020, we require one full term’s notice to avoid penalties. We understand that this may not always be possible but sincerely appreciate your assistance with future planning. Withdrawal notification should be sent to the Principal of the relevant campus:

Parenting Workshop with Mark Le Messurier

Is your parenting style working for you?

Do you know it? Can you name it? Did you choose it? Is it working, healthy and sustainable?

Date: Monday 21 September, 2020.  
Start time: 7pm.  
Join meeting on ZOOM from 6.50pm. Meeting will be locked at 7.05pm.

Let’s reflect on parenting styles with good humour and support for each other. In this online forum you’ll discover: 

  • What your parenting style is
  • Whether you’re comfortable with your style
  • Whether its working for you, and for the kids
  • And, is it sustainable into the teen years?

Come along and learn about the 'social control window'. Then, the next time you’re faced with one of those ‘tricky moments’ with the kids, you’ll be able to ask yourself:

  • Which window do I ‘feel like’ reacting from?
  • Which window ‘should I’ move to?
  • How do I keep my composure?
  • Which window is most likely to result in a positive solution, and has the best chance of strengthening a healthy relationship?

Oh yes, there is an art to parenting and managing children! Kids need parents who understand what their parenting style really looks like, what the consequences of that style are, and what other choices are available.

To register for this online event, which is being arranged by the City of Unley, email pdale@unley.sa.gov.au
