their speeches as they sought support for the prized positions of Head Boy and Head Girl. What we witnessed was nothing short of remarkably heart warming and encouraging. In each case, the candidates expressed with fluency their desire to serve others, of pride in our school, and in the process, displayed a level of Godliness and servant leadership beyond their years. We are blessed with a wonderful group of young men and women who truly wish to make a positive impact in our world.
TERM 4 DATES Tues Oct 15 to Thurs Dec 12
Next year’s student leaders will be announced at the Secondary Graduation and Awards Night which will be held on December 4th. These Year 11’s have now completed their studies for the year, but big plans are afoot for them when they return in 2014. With two thirds of the Class of 2014 already planning to spend their

Leaver’s week in the Phillippines on a Mission Trip, I have no doubt that our leaders for next year are preparing to live lives of influence beyond their time with us. This is what we hope for. This is what we, as a College, desire. When each year group reaches the end of their time at Cornerstone, we hope they will begin to create for themselves opportunities by which they can make a difference and leave a positive legacy that endures. Philippians 2:3-4 says ‘Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.’ Our Senior Secondary students are displaying this passage in the real world. It’s wonderful to see.
