Creative Arts Extravaganza 2019

We held our annual Creative Arts Extravaganza on Wednesday 27 November. It was again a fantastic and exciting
event that showcased the creative abilities of our students from ELC to Year 12. This year we were honoured
to host special guest, Niki Vasilakis, who blessed us with her stunning violin playing. Thank you to all the
families who attended and supported the event. Thank you also to the teachers and staff who spent many hours
preparing for the Extravaganza. A very special thank you to Mrs Michelle West who coordinates the event and
makes it such an extraorindary display of students’ talents.

SVCC Students Win at National Apex Teenage
Fashion Awards in Melbourne!

Southern Vales Christian College had great success at the National finals of the Apex Australian Teenage
Fashion Awards. Five of our students competed after winning their events in the SA finals which was a great
success in itself. All students did the College proud in the way they presented themselves and represented the
College. James Perryman, Year 12, came first in the ‘Formal Wear’ and ‘Casual Wear’ categories and won the
overall ‘Designer of the Year’. With this came a $12500 scholarship to LCI fashion school in Melbourne. Tori
Randall, Year 12, won second prize in ‘Casual Wear’ and won the award f0r the ‘Highest Technical Grade’ in
sewing. We are incredibly proud of all of them. These garments were featured at the Creative Arts Extravaganza
so that the College community could also enjoy them.

Year 12 Final Events

The Year 12 students celebrated and were acknowledged at their final events for the year which included the
Year 12 Formal, the Year 12 Final Assembly, Year 12 Fun Day, Year 12 Prayer Breakfast and the Senior Secondary
Presentation Night. These were a special time of reflection and celebration of their time at Southern Vales. We
congratulate the Year 12 students for their hard work throughout their schooling and pray God’s blessing on their
futures as they move on to further study and career paths.

Operation Christmas Child: Shoe Boxes

Each year Southern Vales partners with Samaritan’s Purse for Operation Christmas Child. We collect donations to
fill gift shoeboxes which are then given to children in developing countries. The gifts included in the shoeboxes
are something to wear, something to play with, something for school, something to love, something special and
something for personal hygiene. It is such a special opportunity for our students to learn the value of giving to
others at Christmas time. Thank you to the parents and families who helped support this worthy cause.


Shayla’s Chop for Change

Shayla, Year 10, Morphett Vale campus, recently donated her long ponytail as part of an initiative to raise money
for people battling cancer. The ponytail will be used to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair
due to cancer treatment. Shayla is doing so to honour her aunty in South Africa who is unfortunately losing her
battle with cancer. If you would like to help Shayla raise funds for this important cause, please visit this link:

‘Walk in Their Shoes’ Walkathon

The Primary and Secondary students enthusiastically took part in a walkathon on the last day of Term 3 to raise
funds for Iris Ministries in India to help underprivileged children attend school. In total, the College raised an
impressive $3,246.30 for Iris Ministries. Thank you to the College community for your generous support.



Nexus Week, Beach Day

The theme for Nexus Week this year was ‘Water’. The Primary and Secondary students have been enjoying a
variety of water-based STEAM activities. The Year 6, 7, 8 & 9 students enjoyed the annual day at the beach as part
of Nexus Week. The students were enthusiastic and in good spirits despite the mild weather. They learnt valuable
surf life rescue skills and participated in fun beach games including cricket and sand castle making.
