Parent Announcements - 22 March 2024

Read more for a series of important announcements from our College Principal.


BUILDING LAUNCH

It has been an exciting week here at ACC Marsden Park! On Monday, it was a joy and privilege to host the Grand Opening of our Secondary Building (known to us as ‘A Block’) and our much-anticipated Technology Centre.


This state-of-the-art Technology facility includes robotics labs, film and photography studios, podcast booths, and a virtual reality lab that is the first of its kind in an Australian school. It also hosts a lecture theatre, a brand new student canteen, a cafe for parents and staff to enjoy a coffee and catch-up in the mornings, as well as our first ever library. These facilities provide our students with access to a teaching environment that will engage, challenge and delight them, and continue to integrate our use of technology and critical thinking skills into all subject areas across the College. 


We welcomed many esteemed guests to the Ceremony, including NSW Education Minister Prue Car MP; Blacktown City Council members; representatives from the NSW Association of Christian Schools and from Christian Schools Australia; ACC Board members; staff; students and families, to celebrate this significant milestone in the life of our community.


Beyond the esteem and excitement of this occasion, these new facilities provide an opportunity for us to imagine a new future for ourselves and our students, refresh our vision, recalibrate our hearts, and renew our efforts as we seek to ensure every member of our community experiences uncommon care, is helped to achieve uncommon excellence, and is equipped to make an uncommon impact in the world.

EASTER SERVICES

We are quickly approaching the celebration of Easter: the central story of the Christian faith about the loving sacrifice of Christ in His death and of His victorious resurrection that offers us new hope and new life.


If you would like to learn more about that story or maybe even to respond to those truths, please find a local church to visit over Easter weekend (information below), or contact us at the College. We’d be delighted to help.
