Building Our Community
There is no doubt that these are unprecedented times that we are all living in. Just this year, Queensland has been hit by devastating fires, floods and now a pandemic spreading across our world. When God gave the College the word ‘Community’ for 2020 as the theme for this year, the Prep to Year 2 team planned diligently for the events that would build community between our parents, staff and students on each of our three campuses.
Recognising it is important for each of our students and families to feel a sense of connection and belonging at King’s, our staff met families at the Prep Picnic, Beyond and the Year 1 Celebration of Learning at Pimpama. It was a joy to see our parents and families sharing quality time together. The campus is fortunate to also have the Barista where many of our families enjoy a bite to eat before school starts. It has also been a pleasure to chat to families catching a quick coffee at the coffee window on Wednesdays with our P&F.
However, as Term 1 progressed and many families have needed to self-isolate, the team has continued to work hard to plan ahead for how the college develops a sense of belonging, whilst we adapt to working and learning from home. It’s times like these where we must draw closer to our community and support those around us. The College appreciates the many donations and vouchers that have been supplied to support others in need and they have each been carefully given to families who are going through a tough time right now.
Please take the time to join your Year level Facebook pages, King's Pimpama location page and King's Parents and Friends Association Pimpama and connect with families in your class and across your child’s Year level as Online Learning begins next term.King's Christian College Communications Information
The College will continue to grow stronger together, knowing that God is with us, guiding us through each and every step of the way. The staff at King’s are excited to innovate and create exciting lessons for our students to enjoy from home. They will continue to partner with you to develop an even stronger community where together, ensuring communication, collaboration and connection. Even though our students are not in school, they are learning excitedly and they are given opportunities to connect with one another and with their teacher from home.
