What a great start to the year. I would like to welcome back all our students, staff and families. A special welcome to all those who are new to our school community. I am looking forward to working with you all and to a year full of opportunities.
As we move closer to celebrating 50 years of rich history, I’d like to acknowledge God’s provision and the hard work of many faithful servants that makes this school what it is today. A strong community that provides outstanding quality in education and is firmly grounded in its Christian faith.
As we look to the future, our intention is to see two complete school sites, Endeavour Hills and Officer. In 2021 Endeavour Hills will offer Prep to Year 12 on the one site. Officer will also begin secondary school by offering Year 7 in 2021. This will be followed by the introduction of Year 8 in 2022 and Year 9 in 2023. Our original Doveton site established in 1970; which has serviced the school for nearly half a century will be sold to fund the construction of a new state of the art Junior School building at the Endeavour Hills site. This building and other planned construction will enable Maranatha to meet its vision as we enter the next 50 years.
Read more about the changes and why they are being made.
We have a few important events coming up for the school in Term 1 and I encourage you to attend, where possible and relevant. Our first upcoming events are our Parent Connect Nights, these are a great opportunity to connect with other parents and your children’s teachers.
