Students will be able to purchase a sweet treat for $1 – $5.

Yr 11&12 Smart Relationships Parent Information Evening with Peter Janetzki


We are pleased to continue our partnership with Peter Janetzki and the 
Smart Relationships Education Program. For more than thirty years, Peter has been reading, researching and presenting on the topic of ‘Human Sexuality and Relationships’. This, combined with thousands of hours of face-to-face counselling, has resulted in a thorough understanding of the complexities of human relationships and sexuality. Peter is also very familiar to, and highly regarded by our community as a result of his informative and well-researched parenting evenings in recent years.

Peter is engaged by the College to present his Smart Relationships Education Program to our Years 4-12 children. Our Smart Relationships Parent Information Sessions are aimed at providing clarity to parents and caregivers around the content of the classroom presentations, and thus empower parents on this topic. There will also be an opportunity to ask Peter questions regarding the program content. We are pleased to be able to offer this program presented by Godly people from a solid biblical and Christ-centred perspective.

Event: Years 11 and 12 Parent Information Evening
Date: Tuesday, 10 March
Time: 6.45pm-9.00pm
Venue: Theatre, Senior Secondary Precinct, Middle & Secondary Campus.

ICAS 2020

Brisbane Christian College is delighted to once again be offering ICAS testing as an option to interested parents and students. ICAS testing offers parents the opportunity to have their child’s progress assessed on a national scale. A detailed breakdown of strong and weak areas is also provided. Distinction and High Distinction certificates are given out at Awards Evening.

These tests are an optional choice by parents. They are not compulsory, and are not a requirement of our College-based assessment. They have a cost of $15.95 per test which is the price set by UNSW, and is not covered by regular College fees. All tests are held in August 2020 during school hours.

Please see the table below for the year levels eligible to sit each type of test. Invitations for each test have been added to each eligible child’s Parent Lounge profile.

Please accept the invitation and pay the registration cost for each test you would like your child to sit.

Parent Lounge registrations are to be completed by Friday, 26 June 2020 (end of Term 2).

If you wish to do some practice questions before the tests, you can download these yourself from the website at: ICAS ASSESSMENTS/ UNSW GLOBAL.


If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please contact

Primary: Mrs Alison Collins at acollins@brisbanechristiancollege.com.au
