Dear News Of The Area,
After reading the Part 2 of the St Philip’s stories “St Philip’s Built on a Foundation of Love” Bay News Of The Area, 8 December 2016.
St Philip’s had been apart of my life for 15 years and with that I absorbed so much of the Chris Walkling’s St Philip’s.
I knew his aspirations and goals for the college and it was hard for me and countless others in our community when he passed.
Chris’s nature is of course irreplaceable, his kindness unmatchable and his heart unlike anyone else’s.
Chris’s legacy is something we get to take on board and reflect in our lives now.
Chris Walkling got to touch hundreds of students’ lives and I was certainly blessed to be one of them.
(Former Student of St Philip’s Christian College Port Stephens)
