Miss Hopkins’ Year 8 class did a stellar job in leading the school in our chapel service this week. Well done Year 8! Thanks for giving the chaplains a day off! We are looking forward to our second Year 8 class leading chapel next week.

Our chapel service this week finished with the announcement of the 2017 College Student Leaders. Our 2017 College Captains are …. (drum roll) …. Monique L and Sahil N! Congratulations! This year our Captains will be supported by a 5 strong student leadership team comprising of Tyler P, Jeff Y, Cameron K, Audrey R and Zahra A. We look forward to working with the 2017 Prescott CollegeStudent Leadership team next year, as you lead with purpose.

At our final Year 12 chapel we celebrated the spiritual leadership of Sam M and Brittany O. Prescott College has been led well by our student leadership, and our lives have been enriched by their candid, collaborative, nurturing and positive approach to leading. All of our Year 12 students have contributed to the ethos and atmosphere of chapels, in particular our WOSE event and our weekly chapels. We have experienced much enrichment from the senior leaders of our school. Our Year 12 chapel ended with a candle light passing ceremony and the singing of our theme song “We Are The Light Of The World”. We will miss the 2016 Year 12s, and wish them all the best as they round this corner and enter the final exam season of their high school careers.

As the year progresses and we get to know the students better, we find they are opening up and beginning to ask us some really thoughtful and sometimes challenging questions. We attempted to address some of these in our very first Prescott Chapel “Q&A” this past Thursday morning. READ MORE

Our students ask some really curly question in Bible Studies. And to be honest, we are not always able to answer them. Some things in life are just a major mystery. Some are just plain unfair, some are confusing, some don’t make sense. As Chaplains and Pastors, we attempt to encourage people in their own faith journey, and be open about our own faith, but we don’t have all the answers cut and dried. More often than not the students end up encouraging us in our faith journey during Bible study! READ MORE

Do you ever wonder what happens to the gold coin donation that Prescott College students give when they wear casual clothes to school? Well, I did some research! READ MORE

The term has started with a bang with our first PCCA church visit and our school Showcase of the Arts. Both myself and Pr Leighton were elbow deep in these events and are very proud of the students! As for school chapels, we have a new theme for the term – “Love Command”. We are looking at Jesus’ teaching from John 13:35 – “By this will everyone know that you are my disciples if you love one another”. READ MORE

This week, Pastor Ali took the students on a journey through the inner life of her cousin Jethro before he died of cancer at age 18. Jethro’s faith and hope was found in the great God of the Bible, who has plans for a bright future for Jethro (Jeremiah 29:11). This true story was an encouragement to students and staff as we closed chapels for the term. READ MORE

We spent one last chapel gleaning wisdom from Mr Hidalgo and his wife Linda before they move back to Sydney. The students were transfixed as Mr and Mrs Hidalgo shared their struggles and triumphs and how God has been with them all the way. We sent the family off with a blessing from all the students. We wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives. READ MORE

Week of Spiritual Emphasis (WOSE) was an incredible blessing, with over 70 students volunteering to participate in the proceedings. Thank you to all the students who played an instrument or sung in our praise and worship team. Thank you to the students who decorated the Chapel – the lights were spectacular. Thank you to all the students who helped out behind the scenes by making sure our microphones worked and ensuring that the week ran smoothly. Thank you to everyone who invited the presence of God into our College during this special week. READ MORE

God’s design from the beginning was to “plant” human beings in a fruitful environment of flourishing creativity and rich relationship with Him. This desire continues, and when we read the final book of the Bible, we see in the age to come, God is with his people in that same environment. READ MORE
