Sunday, 20 March at 10 am, our GLC St John’s Newtown Campus held a service to commemorate 60 years of schooling. It was followed by morning tea. Formerly known as St John’s Lutheran Primary School, 2022 marks 60 years of Lutheran education and service to our Geelong community.
What a wonderful celebration it was with over 340 people in attendance. ‘The Plaza’ was brimming with past and current students, staff, teachers and families, our local St John’s Lutheran Church family and representatives from our other congregations. We were honoured to have District Bishop Lester Priebbenow bless our new buildings and Plaza. St John’s Geelong pastor Rev. Milton Fritsch led worship and our St John’s Year 5-6 student Choir (led by Mrs Howard and accompanied on keyboard by Mr lllingworth and Mrs Kratzman on Violin) and staff choirs sang. How blessed we are to rejoice in their god given talents. We thank everyone involved for making this day one to remember and to Jesus our saviour for his continued blessings on our school.
