Last Thursday, 80 students from the Year 8-11 French classes ran their annual CaféTheatre to enthusiastic parents, family and teachers. Students were involved in performances (plays learnt in class, music and dance), running the café, presenting, stage managing, and handling the sound and camera/video. Parents commented on how amazing it was to hear their child speaking in French. Everyone enjoyed pastries (from Ludo’s Gourmet Kitchen at Avoca) and the chocolate mousse (made by the Year 9 French class).
All students did well in spite of being nervous, with a highlight being Year 10’s surprise Flash Mob to Mika’s ‘Elle me dit’!
Thanks to Wendy Van Der Veer who ran the café, Brenton Luchow who supervised sound and cameras and Laurence Anthony for coaching and crowd control. A big thank you goes to students for their enthusiasm and a job well done, and to their parents and family for encouragement and support.

The Most Important Relationship ...I never knew you, go away...’ Matthew 7:23 NLT
he most important relationship you will ever have for the rest of your life is the one you have with God Himself. It’s one you will be in for all eternity and it’s the very reason you were created in the first place. So the question is: on a busy day when your mum wants to chat about your studies and your friend calls to invite you round, but your youth club is about to start, which do you drop first? Would it even cross your mind that you’ve spent no time with God lately? For centuries Bible experts have argued about the point when someone is ‘saved’ and whether you can lose your place in Heaven once you’ve got it. The truth of the matter is, on the final day when you’re standing face to face with Jesus, the simple question will be: ‘Do you know me?’ You see it doesn’t matter what we’ve done and what we’ve said. The question is: do you have a real relationship with Jesus? When you look into someone’s eyes, you both know whether or not you have a relationship. There’s only two of you, you can’t fake it or pretend you have if you’ve not. Nothing needs to be said, you both know exactly where you stand. So remember, although you can look like a fantastic Christian on paper, it’s really all about you and Jesus-nothing else matters. - Bob & Debby Gass word4U2day.com.au DOWNLOAD THE MOBILE APP TODAY!

HRIS Junior Touch Football
Last week on Tuesday, our junior boys and girls touch footy teams travelled to Nelson Bay to compete against 9 other schools. The girls had a fantastic day with one close loss against St Phillip’s Port Stephens in the pool games and 2 strong wins against Bishop Tyrell and Scone Grammar. In the cross over game with Macquarie College, the girls took a 1-0 lead and with terrific defence held
on to win and go into the grand final, where they met up with St Phillip’s Port Stephens again. The final was locked at 0-0 until the last 8 mins when our opposition scored down the wing. Our girls rallied and despite the fatigue and heat they kept attacking the tryline and were nearly successful quite a few times. In the end the score remained at 1-0 and our girls were awarded silver medals after a fantastic day’s efforts. CCAS is very proud of the following girls – Jasmine Forcadilla, Jess-Ellen Standen, Sophie Lane, Alannah Hook, Zoe Armstrong, Bronty Van Buizen, Freyja Murray, Phoebe Hayman, Steph Howarth
and Paris Forcadilla. The boys team was quite young this year with no Year 9’s in the group and throughout the day, they began to work really well as a unit. Their improvement with every game was quite evident, and their loss to the overall winners of the day was only by 3 tries and demonstrated huge determination and good communication with each other. Huge thanks to the 3 boys who filled in on the team at very late notice. The players were – Ethan Hodgson, Tyler Hodgson, Zac Tikoicina, Ratu Naividi, Jacob Talafua,
Hunter Thompson, Oliver Patterson, Zane Allum, Hayden McKenzie, Tom Dickason and Patrick Rae.
Last Friday, Harrison Zammit (Year 7) represented AICES at the NSW CIS 15’s Boys Tennis trials. He said it was a terrific experience and there were many talented, strong players, hitting really hard. Despite his young age, Harrison made it through to the quarter finals and CCAS is so very proud of his efforts. Good job!
