    At the beginning of this term, Mr. Barnard came to visit Kindergarten to tell us about some children he knows who lives in the Solomon Islands. We saw photos of the children and their school. Mr. Barnard told us stories about how they live and what kinds of things they do for fun. He mentioned that these children do not have many books to put in their library. He gave us a job to do. He told us that he would like us to find some great picture books to buy to put in their library.
    This has sparked much learning! Before we can tell Mr. Barnard the names of some great stories, we need to find out what a great story needs. We are currently looking at what makes a great picture in a storybook. We know that they need color. To find out more about color, we had an art morning. We learned how to combine colors using dye and lightboxes. We experimented with making colors lighter and darker by adding black and white. We also looked at cold and warm colors and how colors make a difference in how we feel. Very soon, we will be putting this learning to fair use by evaluating how color is used in stories.
    Regents Park Christian School has been significant in the growth of Christian schooling in Australia over the past 40 years. It has been a pioneer in the development of Christian Community Schooling. Our school motto is intentional to develop and equip students to know, grow, and serve. Not only are we committed to excellence in teaching and learning, but we also have a passion for developing a community that lives out of Biblical teaching and Biblical truth.
    We have a desire to be excellent and yet distinctive. Our staff are both committed and dedicated and, at the same time, compassionate and nurturing. That desire comes from employing training and equipping staff who believe God is calling them to live in and serve this community.
    As we continue to grow as a dynamic, K-12 school, we are excited by the plans and opportunities that are presently before us. We have a passion for journeying with our young people to help them develop Christian character and leadership. It is summed up well in Romans 12:1-2: "1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, given God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your right and proper worship.  2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.
    The school is an incorporated body that is governed by the School Board. The board's primary task is to seek Godly wisdom and act on behalf of the school community by clearly articulating the vision and goals of the school, which reflect its Christian ethos. It establishes policies aimed at achieving the vision and goals. It also has the responsibility to ensure the school meets its legal obligations. The School Board appoints the Principal, establishes administrative policies and limitations for execution by the Principal, and ensures the Principal is adequately and appropriately resourced to carry out his assigned responsibilities. It is also the School Board's responsibility to ensure the accountability of the Directors and the Principal.
