Every day, the CHAC community generates heart-warming stories of achievement, commitment, acknowledgment, endeavour, mateship, and success. Each of these stories are measured not by 'being the best' but by 'trying one's best'; not by 'giving the most', but by sharing what one has; and not by outshining one another but by shining a light on those in need of a helping hand.

Students at CHAC were delighted to welcome Mr Rudd to Assembly.

We are so proud of Rachael Dodds (Year 12) and sent her our very best wishes as she competed in the T35 100m and 200m sprints at the London Paralympic Games.

On 8 June, students were asked to come to school wearing their brightest shades and to donate a gold coin that would be sent to support students whose lives have been disrupted by HIV/AIDS.

This was an initiative of the Primary Captains - Lydia and Harry - and aimed to raise awareness among our students of the difficulties faced by children in developming nations.

THe money raised will go towards providing medical care for children in communities most affected by HIV - Cambodia and Papua New Guinea - by contributing to well-established and effective projects of the Anglican Board of Mission and the HOPE Foundation for Cambodian Children.

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is a two week residential conference for Australia’s best and brightest science students entering Year 12 – tomorrow’s leaders in the sciences – who are thinking about a career in science, engineering or technology.

The day started fresh, but warmed up nicely as the sun rose above the trees. The smell of sizzling sausages made our mouths water early on, and later we had the burgers, hot chips and Greek kebabs making us look forward to lunch. Crowds arrived early for bargains at the Trash and Treasure Stalls and continued during the day.
