Term 4, Week 1 2022
Welcome to Term 4. I hope that all students had a restful term break and have enjoyed their first week of the final school term for 2022.
While the Year 7-11 students were enjoying the school holidays, our Year 12 ATAR students commenced their Semester 2 College Examinations. The results of these examinations contribute towards a significant part of their final ATAR score and are the culmination of many years of study. I hope these exams went well and wish all our students the best of luck with their SCSA examinations later this term.
This week we announced our 2023 Student Leadership Team (SLT). After a competitive and thorough process, I was delighted to inform the successful applicants of their selection. I look forward to working with our 2023 Student Leaders next year. A full list of these leaders is included in this bulletin.
The College is currently putting the finishing touches to plans for our Class of 2022 Graduation events, which will take place next Friday, 21 October. The day will commence with a Graduation Mass and assembly, followed by rehearsals throughout the day and culminating with the formal Graduation Ceremony in the evening. I look forward to joining with college staff and students to celebrate these important events with our Year 12s and their families.
Next week, our Annual Music Concert takes place on Tuesday evening. Members of the College Community are invited to join us for a night of music performances by the various Lumen Christi College music ensembles including the College Choir, Percussion Ensemble, Concert Band, Rock Bands, Soul Band and our Year 11 and 12 Certificate Bands. Tickets are free, however bookings are essential. Tickets can be booked here.
I hope that all students have an enjoyable Term 4.

More information about these key dates will be emailed next week.
Year 11 ATAR Modern History Excursion
As part of their studies, Year 11 ATAR Modern History students visited the Holocaust Institute of WA yesterday where they undertook an exploration of the rise of the Nazi Germany and the anatomy of the Holocaust. Students participated in an interactive experience deciding which “right” they believed was the most important to them, with most deciding citizenship and the right to vote. Students were also provided with information on a family and asked what personal items they believed the family would pack in their suitcase when they were forced into the ghettos. Finally, students listened to a personal recount on the hardship and suffering a survivor experienced, spoken through a family member. Overall, it was a thought-provoking experience that engaged and strengthened students' knowledge and understanding of Nazi Germany.
