Key dates to remember! Remember to make note of the following dates: may 1 Book Launch Sidney Green may 12 - 13 Tertiary and Careers Expo,

The ceremony began with the procession of all graduating students. Their faces were glowing with pride as they walked to their seats, as were those of their families and the faculty who had the honour of bringing them through the system. The band led us in worship before the formalities begun, and after the formal speeches were finished the graduands were called to the stage one by one to have their academic award bestowed upon them. It was very moving to watch, giving the day a joyous and emotional finish to the student’s journey and experiences. Being a graduate of Tabor Adelaide means that the academic learning and the personal growth achieved while studying at Tabor Adelaide will see each individual grow in their chosen career pathways and personal lives with greater confidence and strength. Again we, Tabor Adelaide, your parents and friends say congratulations, and that we are proud of you and who you are.

FREE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION OFFER On 19th-21st July, Tabor Adelaide will be hosting the 2013 Conference on Science and Christianity, a biennial conference presented by ISCAST (Christians in Science and Technology) in association with the GCRI (Graeme Clark Research Institute at Tabor Adelaide). We are delighted that Revd Professor David Wilkinson will be flying in from the UK as keynote presenter. David trained first as a scientist and then as a theologian. His first PhD was in astrophysics, after which he studied theology at Cambridge and became a Methodist minister. Later he completed a PhD in theology and since then has held a number of different positions at Durham University in apologetics and theology. He is now Principal of St John’s College and Lecturer in the Department of Theology and Religion, Durham University, and is a member of the GCRI Advisory Panel. Revd Dr Denis Edwards, well-known in Adelaide as a theologian at Flinders University, will also be presenting. The conference – Faith, Hope and Quarks: Scientific and Theological Perspectives on the Future includes a number of parallel presentations by other speakers, to be held in three separate rooms at Tabor Adelaide over the weekend (these parallel sessions will not clash with the keynote presentations). ISCAST is offering free registration (to the value of $250.00) to three students who are willing to serve as helpers in these rooms: ensuring Smart Boards are ready, offering any technical help where necessary, moving chairs, and generally ensuring presentations are ready in the alocated rooms. It is not an arduous task, and David Hughes, Tabor’s IT guru, will be offering specific training regarding use of Smart Boards on Friday morning 19th July, immediately before the start of the conference. If you are interested in applying for one of these places – Please do immediately so you don’t miss out. Contact Dr Juhani Tuovinen by email:, or visit GCRI at Tabor Adelaide.
