On Friday, August 17, all the students from Mundaring Christian College came together to investigate all aspects of communication at the College’s ‘Communications Day’.
The day was kicked off with prayer and an opening message from Mr McNeill at Assembly. Mr McNeill had a lot of encouraging words to say around the importance of good communication. One point that stood out was the following;
"Communication is a two-way street. It's not just what you put out but it’s also what you take in. It's how you listen, it’s how you think about what is being said to you and it’s how you respond."
Following Mr McNeill's welcome message, we heard from student Caitlin H.W. who gave an inspiring message on communication in the form of braille; observed Harley from Guide dogs Australia demonstrate obedience through commands; enjoyed a skit put on by our staff and skyped students in Indonesia.
Our Primary Campus hosted an exhibition of communication-focussed stalls, covering everything from Braille to Astro photography, Maritime flags, Morse Code, Aboriginal stories, Puppet shows, Flight simulation, Telecommunication, Card making and Reading.
The room was filled with activity and it didn’t stop there!
After school all students, staff and parents gathered together outside on the oval where we were joined by 98Five FM, food and coffee vans and Guide dogs Australia. Mr Whippy was a great hit!
Radio station 98Five FM conducted an outside broadcast of their Drive with Mel and Jeziel show from the school, and the Guide Dogs WA attended to discuss with students how guide dogs can help people communicate and interact.
On a whole the day was a great success.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in making Friday happen.
