The Cracovia Club in Bennett Springs is the current home for Beechboro Christian School and it was an amiable setting for the first ‘post-COVID’ assembly for the 250 students who call Beechboro Christian home on Wednesday afternoon.
Principal Mike Bolan, who has held numerous leadership positions at Beechboro Christian School and Ellenbrook Christian College over a number of years, was formally inducted as Principal of Beechboro Christian School by SCEA’s CEO Dr Graeme Cross.
A recent initiative of Mr Bolan’s was to create a giant jigsaw puzzle for all of the students and give them each a piece when the school was separated into ‘learning from home’ conditions. The school is now together and the jigsaw is once again complete, demonstrating the strong level of community that exists in the multicultural environment of Beechboro Christian School.
“My piece of the jigsaw is in there,” said Mr Bolan to the gathered student and parents following some excellent musical items led by Diane Durham.
“It is no bigger than anyone else’s and it fits in somewhere along with everyone else’s.”
SCEA CEO Dr Graeme Cross spoke of ‘passing the baton’ and used the analogy of a relay team which works together to achieve great things. The Ethiopian athlete Haile Gebrselassie inspired the people of his home country each time he ran his Olympic races. Our leaders and teachers can inspire students with how they lead and model excellent behaviour.
Congratulations to Mr Bolan and the team at Beechboro Christian School for an excellent ceremony!
