Avila College News

Dear Avila Community

Dear Avila Community

Congratulations to our Year 11 students who have undertaken their internal exams this week. Nearing the end of an unusual year of learning they have shown themselves to be resourceful, resilient and mature in their approach to learning and growing. Exams are an important opportunity to review and reflect and to learn what we have already mastered and those skills, knowledge and aptitude yet to be mastered. In the upcoming HeadStart program the view is again different, a chance to look ahead optimistically to the next stage of learning.

Well done also to all students who have continued to adapt with flexibility and poise to new COVIDSafe measures. Together, along with the wider Victorian community we continue to do our part to keep everyone safe.

Best wishes for the weekend and as always, Happy Learning!

Dr Michelle Cotter | Principal
Exec. MBA, M.Ed. Leadership, M.Ed. RE, Post Grad. Dip. IT, Post Grad. Dip. Adult Ed., Grad. Dip. RE, B.Ed

Faith & Mission

Weekly Prayer

Heavenly Father, 

In all our travelling, Lord may it be your footsteps in which we place our feet.

We pray for our Year 12 students as they embark on the next phase of their journey. May they turn to you for guidance and support as the experiences they encounter on the road ahead challenge inspire them.

Watch over our Year 10 and Year 11 students as they turn their attention to the next phase in their education. May they too embrace the challenges and excitement of new and ongoing studies. Comfort and guide them in their work and study.

Lord God, hear our prayers for all our students including our Year 7's to Year 9's, keep them close in your presence and walk with them on their journey. In all their travelling may your footsteps guide them. As they stumble on the way, help them put their trust in you. May it be your footsteps in which they place their feet.

Big Ideas in Computer Technology

In Year 10, Big Ideas in Computer Technology, some students chose to learn to create 3D animations. This meant that they needed to construct their objects in a 3D tool called Blender and then they had to learn to make those objects move.
