Victory Lutheran College - welcome to Parliament!

Posted November 25, 2014

 

CATHY McGOWAN (Indi) (13:51): I am delighted today to welcome students of Victory Lutheran College to the Parliament of Australia. These students are from all over my electorate but particularly from Wodonga, the beautiful Yackandandah and the especially wonderful Indigo Valley.

The vision of Victory College is to build a Christian community devoted to developing the whole child—a learning community, a spiritual community, a celebrating community and a prophetic community. Victory College in 2015 will have over 670 students and 80 staff and so it plays a major role in my community, providing education from P right through to year 12.

I have been delighted to be a guest at the college on a number of occasions and recently meeting the members of the school board and the Lutheran Parish Council. I would like to congratulate Mr Cain McDonald, the principal, and the Lutheran community of Wodonga for their fantastic effort in establishing this school. To the students of this college, I hope today sets a really strong foundation for your involvement in politics and being part of the wonderful democracy that is Australia.
