2007 Ten Year Reunion

On Saturday 4th of November 2017, the Class of 2007 gathered at Soden’s Hotel in Albury to dance, drink and devour delicious finger food for our 10 year high school reunion.  

We reminisced late into the night, celebrating the students we once were and the adults we’ve now become.

The night was a huge success and we are looking forward to our next reunion in the years to come.

Reformation Service Celebration


Today, St Paul’s College celebrated along with 250 primary and secondary students the 500 Anniversary of the Reformation within the Christian Church.

Students from the five Riverina Lutheran Schools attended – Lutheran School Wagga Wagga, St Paul’s School Henty, St Paul’s College Walla Walla, St John’s Jindera & Victory Lutheran College Wodonga participated in the special service of celebration.

During the service, students from each school presented a five minute creative presentation acknowledging every century commencing 1517 to 2017.  The focus for every century is: “For you – the Reformation covered the good news that Jesus is for you.  What good news for you was recovered in your century?”.

Martin Luther was instrumental in nailing a document to the church doors in Wittenberg, Germany on the 31st October 1517, outlining a list of ninety-five statements and questions concerning the church’s teaching on how a person must be saved.  The celebration acknowledged what Martin Luther did for the Christian faith, making it real and accessible to the common person – which we celebrate today in 2017.

The day ended in a lovely shared morning tea in the College grounds.

 

Preparing students for the future

St Paul's College Year 11 students enjoyed a morning of "mock interviews" preparing them for their future career path and lifelong journey.

Representatives from a local Employment Agency and College teachers were involved in the activity - outlining to the students what to expect and how to present themselves when in an employment interview.

We trust this training will assist our senior students and prepare them for their future endeavors.


Shooting Team Hit the Target!

During the last week of Term 3, 10 keen St Paul's College students participated in the Albury/Wodonga SSAA 8th Annual Inter-School Shoot.  

This competition is renowned throughout our region involving a combination of Shotgun, .22 Rimfire Rifle and Bench Rest shoots. 

Our College received great results with our B grade shooters placing 2nd place in the team event while Jayden Purvis placing third in the individual category.  The A grade team placed a commendable 5th in the team event with Charlie Harbison achieving the highest score overall among students from our College.

All students shot very well on the day and many volunteers commended them, not only on their shooting ability but on their conduct, manners and respect.

Shooting has become a very popular activity for students this year - both girls and boys attending a Shooting Club in Albury receiving training by professional club members.

We look forward to our first Field and Game School shoot in mid October.

Excellence in Science


Five students from St Paul's were presented with awards displaying excellence in their Science Research Project. The award was a certificate and prize money of $100 for each student provided by the Rowe Scientific Regional School Student Grants, secured through the Science Teachers Association of NSW.

Equine Cross Country Course


St Paul's Equine students are busy planning and working at the school's Cross Country Course, in preparation for the up and coming Cross Country assessments for Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 Equine Students.

The course is looking fantastic, thanks to the help of the dedicated Equine Team and the lovely winter rains we have received. The students have been training hard each week this term in preparation for this assessment and we wish them all the best. 


Year 9 Students Hit The Slopes


Last week a group of eager Year 9 students hit the ski slopes early for their first time skiing or snowboarding.

With an early morning start they traveled to Falls Creek with Ms Barber, Mr Wellington and Mr Hartshorn on the school bus ready for a day of adventure.

It was a beautiful day with blue skies and not a breath of wind as persistence and determination paid off as the students enjoyed the snow experience.  Many laughs were had, skills learnt and memories made throughout the day.

Well done to everyone for a fantastic effort!
