National Science Week 11-19 August 2018

2018 theme is Game Changers and Change Makers.

This year our staff have been focusing on science in our professional learning and we are excited about doing something different during Science Week. 

Our Friday Electives over the next two weeks will have a science focus and classes will be taking part in science rotations and lots of other activities during Science Week. 

We are looking forward to some hands-on learning and experiments, and using some science inquiry skills.

Go to to look at lots of Science Stuff. 




Enjoy hand crafted Barossa wines and raise money for your school!
Have you heard about Faith Lutheran College’s wine program? Every vintage since 1992, wines have been hand crafted by Year 10 students under the direction of Winemaker Bob Mitchell, and well supported by generous Vignerons and Winemakers of the Barossa. The label design changes each vintage with the colourful labels designed by talented Year 11 Visual Arts and Design students. The result? Wonderful wines that express unique regional characters of the Barossa.

For every 6 bottles purchased by your school community, Faith will donate $10 back to your school.

See the office or website for an order form.

Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 August

We will have a school stall both days, plus the school band has been invited to perform on the Sunday morning 

We will be part of the Treasure Trail and have some puzzles, games and small giveaways

We will be after some helpers (adults and senior students) to help on the stall.   If you are interested in doing a two hour block please let Jenny in the office know.  The school will pay for your entry.

You don't need to have any skills or experience  - just a love of our school and a willingness to share that.
