Life Massive Youth
Every Friday morning from 8:00am the Life Massive team along with Pastor Saskia and Chaplain Joel serve up a free breakfast to Middle and Secondary students. Students from Years 6 – 12 are served breakfast with handball, music and a chance to hang out before the school day begins.
Life Massive is the youth ministry of Life Church designed for high school students in Years 6-12. Our Friday night program is packed with heaps of fun and inspirational messages in a friendly and faith-filled atmosphere. Our current program can be found online live on Friday at 7pm followed by zoom calls for life groups. Check it out here https://lifechurch.com.au/life-at-home/life-massive-live.
2020 ICAS Update
Please note that despite the COVID-19 restrictions, ICAS will still be running in Term 3 as planned for most subjects and students.
ICAS are externally set assessments administered by UNSW Global. They occur in a range of different subjects which allow you to see your child’s progress measured against age equivalent peers in Australia and South East Asia. Invitations are open in TASS Parent Lounge and we would encourage all parents to look at these and enrol their children.
During the last week, UNSW Global has advised the College of two major changes to ICAS 2020 for this unprecedented year. These are as follows:
1) The Writing Assessment will no longer be available to students of all year levels
2) No assessment (in any subject) will be offered to Year 11 and 12 students.
The College will reimburse those families:
1) Who have already accepted the TASS Parent Lounge invitations and paid for the ICAS Writing Assessment, or
2) Whose children are in Year 11 or 12 and they have accepted and paid for any available assessments.
These families should have already been notified.
The writing assessment has been removed from the visible invitations on TASS Parent Lounge and Year 11 and 12 students are no longer invited to participate in any of the other subject assessments.
We apologise for any confusion or disappointment caused with these changes and we thank you for your patience once again, as we navigate this interesting year together.

Year 10 Immunisations
Brisbane Christian College is participating in Queensland Health’s School Immunisation Program. All Year 10 students will be offered free meningococcal ACWY vaccinations during Term 3. Consent forms will be sent home with Year 10 students this week, and must be signed and returned to Student Services by Friday, 5 June. Only students with a signed and completed ‘Yes to Vaccination’ card will be vaccinated.
