Free Dress Day (PP-Yr 12)
On Tuesday, 18 February, Brisbane Christian College is hosting a free dress day on all three of our campuses, to raise money to provide relief to individuals and families who have been affected by bushfires. The theme is red and yellow to show support for the many brave firefighters who continue to risk their lives to selflessly help others.
All funds raised will be given to the Australian Christian Churches International (ACCI) Bushfire Relief Appeal who provide much-needed relief during the initial emergency. This includes:
- food distribution to emergency services and affected families
- providing clothing and other emergency supplies
- giving practical support to farmers, including livestock feed and
- supporting chaplains.
The funds will also be used to support communities to recover and rebuild in the months following this disaster. We are continuing to work closely with our Australian Christian Churches (ACC) Churches and Chaplains, so communities affected receive the help they need.
We usually ask for a gold coin donation to participate in College free dress days however we ask that you prayerfully consider how your family can contribute to this cause.
You are not expected to go out and purchase outfits for this free dress day, however, as you prepare, we encourage you to have a discussion as a family about the opportunity we have to be a blessing to others and pray for those who are experiencing this crisis.

Yr 11 Men's Retreat
Coming up in March we will be taking our Year 11 boys on our annual Men’s Retreat.
This retreat will provide an opportunity for your child to learn core leadership and life skills that will set him up for his final years at our College. We have a heart to see all of our Senior Students finish strong and united, and we believe that this retreat provides a great environment to realise this goal.
Over the course of the three days, the boys will be involved in leadership sessions presented by a very special guest speaker, Ps Sunjay Stevensen. Each session is crafted to challenge, inspire and equip your son on his journey. There will also be plenty of down-time between sessions for students to use the facilities of the resort.
This school event is not compulsory but ALL boys in Year 11 are considered as ATTENDING unless they opt out. If we do not receive notification that your son WILL NOT be attending, we will consider that they are and the cost will be attributed to their fees in 2020, which will cover all transportation, meals, accommodation and activities.

Yr 11 Ladies Colour Conference
Coming up in March we will be taking our Year 11 girls to Colour Your World: Conference in Sydney
Colour Your World is a life changing conference: it places value upon womanhood and inspires each woman to be all that she can be. It’s an opportunity for our students to learn from successful Christian women in and around the world, as they share their story of how they overcame and grew stronger in their faith, in life and as a lady. Our Year 11 Colour trip will also inspire your daughter to learn core leadership and life skills that will set her up for her final years at our College. We have a heart to see all of our Senior Students finish strong and united, and we believe that this conference provides a great environment that enables us to achieve this goal.
This school event is not compulsory but ALL girls in Year 11 are considered as ATTENDING unless they opt out. If we do not receive notification that your daughter WILL NOT be attending, we will consider that they are and the cost will be attributed to their fees in 2020.
