In 1991 the foundations of a new school were laid in the tranquil country town of Strathalbyn. At that time a scripture of promise "all your children will be taught by the Lord and great will be your children's peace", (Isaiah 54:13) also formed the predominant values upon which Murraylands Christian College was built.

BULLYING NO WAY!
On Thursday 19 March the Social Justice Team ran Orange Day. The purpose of Orange Day was to raise awareness around the issue of bullying and how devastating it can be to everyone involved.
The day consisted of a few things such as wearing orange clothes to school in order to raise awareness, lunch time activities for all students such as: water balloon toss, 3 legged races, human knot & sack race relays. During recess time, students had the option to go into the office and make a cut out of their hand, write a positive message on it and then stick it on the wall, which has been named Hands of Hope’.
What impressed the Staff was that the students initiated this all by themselves, the only involvement from Staff was when they went to the Principal to seek approval to do the event. In their own time the students organised the notes to go out to parents and they planned and ran the lunch time activities. The most amazing thing that they did was create a video to promote the day. This entailed filming many students around the School and asking them questions around the bullying issue. All filming and editing was done during their lunch breaks and at home. Students showed the video to the Secondary Students at their assembly and it pulled at some people’s heart strings (both young and old)!!
Well done and thank you to the team for taking the time to organise the day and the activities.
