Week 3 - Wellbeing Week
We were very fortunate to have Cam Calkoen come and speak to our students. Cam dreams of a world where everyone is inspired to embrace opportunity, and our physical being is no barrier to succeeding in our dreams and aspirations. It is dreams that have brought the world to what we see today. And our aspirations will propel it into the future.
Cam says that no one can walk or talk at birth. But some people, like me, are presented with this likelihood for the rest of our lives. I chose to defy the odds, and now I have the opportunity to showcase what can be achieved when we see opportunity, clarify purpose, and live for awesome!
I was born with Cerebral Palsy, but today the only labels I need are my name and occupation: Cam Calkoen, Inspirational Speaker. The inspiration is not because of my Cerebral Palsy, although that’s a part of me I choose to embrace. It comes from an aspiration to make life as awesome as it can be through the pursuit of excellence. I have gone from people doubting I would ever walk, to exceeding expectations.
Life is what we make it and the values needed to achieve awesomeness are simple – we need to believe, and in doing so, leave no stone unturned. My offerings help you identify these unturned stones – in other words, I inspire others to dream big and achieve more!
The students really enjoyed Cam's inspirational message!

STUDENTS LEAVING THE COLLEGE GROUNDS
A reminder that all students are expected to remain on the College grounds for the duration of the College Day, 8:35am-3:30pm. If student need to purchase their lunch then they need to use the College Tuck Shop that is open at interval and lunchtime and has a range of options.The only exception to this is the Year 13 privilege that allows them to leave the grounds at lunchtime on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday only. Year 13 students are to consume any bought food, offsite, as the College Tuck Shop has the sole contract to deliver food on site. Students are not to bring food bought from outside establishments onsite.
All students are expected to attend Assembly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and be onsite in time for the bell at 8:35am. By coming together as a College we start as a family, with a prayer and/or reflection. If a student is unable to be on site by the bell parents are able to contact the College Office or write a note explaining the lateness and it will be acknowledged.
