Hub groups are very important at SOF. They are the people around us who spur us on to be bold and sharpen us. SOF has a strong unity focus. Everyone will have a hub group for practical classes.
First 2 classes for everyone are online through Zoom
Face-to-face classes begin in April and will be assigned in the next few weeks
90% attendance compulsory whether you are online or face-to-face
Online Zoom Classroom
We regularly have online classes. Some students will participate in these fortnightly, others once a term. Click below to join an online classroom.
Turn your camera on, and make sure your sound is muted
Jump in and add your thoughts when we have discussions!
We use Facebook groups to share things that are happening in and around school - feel free to post!

In a school environment, students typically find out information from classmates just as much as staff. Make sure you are checking your emails as well as looking out for fellow classmates so everyone knows what’s going on.
Check your email weekly, even if you fall behind in lectures
Ask your group for info and look out for each other so you don’t miss things
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help
Your booklist arrived in your Welcome Pack. Make sure you order your books early so you have them for when you need them.
Best places are Koorong, Word or places like Book Depository - you can order online
Your welcome pack has a booklist with ISBNs and pictures of books
Order 4 weeks in advance so you’ve got your book when you need it
Some students will have paid upfront and others are on a payment plan. We spend money on a student’s behalf when we confirm their enrolment, so now you’ve been enrolled to study you’ll need to ensure you complete your payments in full. If for any reason you need to defer to next year you may, but you must complete your payments this year.
$40 per week
Stay current and reach out if you need help - our Finance team love standing in faith with you.
