Mem Fox’s tale ‘Wombat Divine’ was the inspiration behind this evenings end-of-year Kindy Concert.
With the characters played out by the cutest of little Cornerstone students, clothed in delightful costumes, the crowd of parents and grandparents were delighted with what unfolded before them.
Wombat loves the Nativity Play so much that he tries out for every part, but he doesn’t seem to be right for any of them. Luckily, wise Emu knows the perfect role for a sleepy wombat, and it’s the best Nativity Play ever.
Following the performance, a special tribute was given by Representative Parents from the Kindy Classes to staff, for not only their hard work to bring this production together, but also as thanks for their work over the past year. Each of the teachers and aides were presented with a beautiful floral arrangement in thanks.
Principal, Bruce Douglas, sat down amongst the little angels and other nativity characters to share with parents his desire for each of this evenings ‘stars’ to continue with their journey on being the best they can be.
A wonderful night of reflecting on the most important part of the festive season that lies ahead. It’s Jesus.

The Primary students at Cornerstone Christian College have given a great final performance at their end of year Presentation Night.
With a theme of ‘The Heavens Declare the Glory of God’, students in Years 2 to 6 let the story of Christmas unfold – from the viewpoint of the Angels who watched the birth of Jesus.
The clever use of dance, drama, music and song, brought about a truly spine-tingling performance.
Staff worked hard to see the students bring the night together – and to teachers and aids, we very much appreciate the skills and time you have spent to bring us such a special event. To the students – you shone. A truly beautiful event that explored the truths at the heart of Christmas. Well done.
During the evening, Mrs Bev Hartley presented Pania Kara with the Primary Literacy Award, and the Hon. Troy Buswell, presented the Numeracy Award to Bianca Gervasi. Congratulations to both young ladies on their academic endeavours.
College Principal, Bruce Douglas, addressed the audience and outlined future plans for the College, which include a Dunsborough Campus commencing in 2014, and a second Busselton campus being explored at this time. He also outlined the desire to help each of the College’s students to discover their God-given gifts and talents, and for their educational experience to be an adventure. He also wove through his address the message of Christmas, and the hope that Jesus brings.
A moving and brilliantly executed performance. Well done to everyone who helped bring it all together.

The Kindy & Pre-Primary students at Cornerstone Christian College have completed their year with a special concert. Hawaiian dancers, a swimming Santa, kangaroos and a Nativity all blended into a lovely story about the true meaning of Christmas.
‘Grandma’ Shannon sat with her family and read the story of the first Christmas. The young actors determined that to celebrate the season, there is no need for snow, Santa , or even a knowledge of English. They came to the conclusion that our recognition of the birth of Jesus and the message of love and hope it brings is the heart of the season.
A colourful array of costumes were on display, and many proud parents witnessed the acting debut of their children.
Special thanks must go to our amazing staff within the Early Learning Centre, who guided the students towards such a successful and heartwarming evening. Well done.

The 2009 school year is almost complete, and last night was celebrated with a wonderful presentation by the Primary School classes.
A drama- based on the Biblical events of Christmas, and put together by Miss Sarah Durell – had parents and other guests mesmerised. Each year group presented an element of the story in drama, song or dance which showed a great deal of variety and talent. The ”Truth Unveiled” was a wonderful production that showed the hard work of staff and students alike.
During the course of the evening, the Hon.Troy Buswell MLA and State Treasurer presented the 2009 Numeracy Award to Johaline Enslin. Principal Graeme Cross presented Jack Wallace with the Literacy Award. Students were also acknowledged for exceptional results in the State MSE testing.
Mr Cross addressed those present, and re-inforced the College’s desire to put kids first. He also announced that 2010 will be our ”Year of Community” where we are endeavouring to build a stronger sense of connection between all those involved with the College.
At the conclusion of the evening, Mr Cross was joined by Mr Sean Smith and Mr Todd Ellery in engaging the audience in a sing-a-long, which had the crowd on their feet and thoroughly enjoying the moment.
A great night of celebration.
