Primary Leaders Morning Tea
Yesterday, 4 of our student leaders attended a special Primary Leaders Morning Tea at State Parliament House at the invitation of our local member, Matt Kean MP. It was a great morning and our students enjoyed seeing the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council in sitting and hearing some passionate debates. They also had the opportunity to meet and hear about leadership from the Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, former NRL great, Brad Fittler and Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens silver medalist and Waratah’s loose forward, Pat McCutcheon. Our students are to be commended for the way in which they represented Berowra Christian School.

Semester Two Prefect Induction
Today, we thanked our outgoing Semester One Prefects and inducted our Semester Two Prefects. Our, ‘Experience Leadership’ program is a great way for all Year Six students to be involved in leading and serving our school and community. We pray that the Semester Two Prefects enjoy their time as student leaders and are challenged to take on new roles and responsibilities.

This term, BCS is taking part in the Christian Inter-school Debating Competition (CIDCOM). During the past few years our school team has experienced great success which we hope to continue this year. This year we have an almost completely new team with many who have never debated before. This is a great opportunity for students to practice their public speaking skills while also developing their ability to research and construct well reasoned arguments. So far the team from BCS has shown great determination and preparation and we wish them well for the remainder of the competition.

Leadership in Action
On Wednesday 29th March, BCS held an ‘Experience Big School’ day and welcomed the boys and girls from the local preschool. The Year 6 students acted as buddies to the younger children and showed them around the school, demonstrated how to use the different equipment, created pictures using the computers and played a range of games. It was a great morning of exploration and learning for the preschoolers and a great chance for the BCS leaders to develop and practice their leadership skills.

Swimming Carnival Fun
The sun was shining and the azure blue water inviting for the BCS annual swimming carnival. As always it was a wonderful day of community and fun as students competed in the timed events and assisted their partners in the infant novelty races. This carnival is a lovely way in which BCS demonstrates the strength of a small school as all students from K-6 took part in the day and put into practice what they had been learning in their swimming lessons.
Thank you to all the parents who helped on the day. We wish the students going to Zone all the best as they represent BCS.
