God is still in control…

I have been encouraged lately by the number of emails received with regards the way we are handling the current Covid-19 situation. Parents have expressed they appreciate the calmness we have approached the issue.The reason we can respond to any crisis calmly is because we believe God is still in control.The Bible speaks of God as our refuge in times of trouble...

Getting ready for Day 1

Welcome to the 2020 academic year. We are looking forward to another terrific year at Mueller, as we work together to grow the next generation. This special edition of Mueller Connect is focussed on getting ready for Day 1. Either in the news items below or clicking on the ‘community’ tab, you should be able to find everything you need to know. Day 1 can be a little stressful, so we will do everything we can to make sure the first day runs as smooth as possible.

A Reflection of Him

At Mueller, we see a student’s schooling so much more than a report card. A report card is a measurement of ability with the assignments, exams, pracs and performances all distilled down to a letter from A to E. This makes for an easy measure. But a student’s school experience is so much more than that.

Achieving in Term 4

Term 4 is a term of celebration. The day to day learning continues, however the end of term has a real sense of celebrating the student achievements over the year.

Contribute in a Positive Way

This time last year, I was getting ready for the USA Homestay Tour with a group of Mueller students. The host school was Prestonwood Christian Academy in Dallas, Texas. One of the memories I have is the huge financial contribution that the community need to make in order for the school to operate. On top of school fees, there are regular giving days and capital funding requests to operate the school. In Australia, we are blessed with government funding to assist the day to day operation of the College as well as capital funding for building works.

Contribute to Community at the Mueller Fete

Mueller has changed over the years. A major change is reflected each year in the College Fete. In the early days, and like most school fetes, the Mueller Fete was held to raise extra funds to purchase resources. The Fete was essential in those days to balance the books. The Fete was also a community celebration and a much anticipated event each year.

To be Known

Every Monday morning, all Years 5-12 students receive an email to encourage them into the new week. Term 2 has focussed on the second of our values – Everyone is Known and Valued. Below is this week’s email.

You are Valued

At Mueller, we believe Everyone is to be Known and Valued. Last term we unpacked in different ways what it means that Every Student Matters, and a logical next step is that we are to value each other through getting to know each other.

My Living Hope

Next week we will have our Easter megaChapel. As we put together the service, one song stands out as an anthem as part of the program. Words in the chorus state: Jesus Christ, my living hope.
