Term 2, Week 2 2023

Welcome to our Week 4 Bulletin. Over the past two weeks, we have enjoyed an abundance of college and community activities such as the Aladdin Production, Mother’s Day Breakfast, Year 10 Emmaus Retreat, Year 11 Cape to Cape Outdoor Education Hiking Excursion and numerous incursions.

It was great to see so many mothers and mother figures join us for our annual Mothers’ Day Breakfast. With over 300 people attending, the breakfast was a resounding success. It was wonderful to see students, staff and parents participating in the event, and contributing to our Mothers’ Day video. I hope that everyone who attended enjoyed the breakfast.

We also had the pleasure of experiencing the excellent Aladdin Production, which was a great chance for our talented students to showcase their skills and talents to the community. The students and staff worked tirelessly to create an amazing production, and we are thankful for the efforts and hard work the Performing Arts team put into creating such a high-quality production. What a spectacular show it was!

The Year 10 Emmaus Retreat has also taken place during the past 2 weeks. During this retreat, students spent two days cooperating and participating in activities led by the Youth Mission Team. They had the opportunity to listen to others and engage in group discussions, which highlighted the importance of relationships.

We have had several incursions and excursions since our last bulletin which I hope you enjoy reading about in the articles that follow.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, students and parents involved in these activities for making these experiences such a success.

Whole School Assembly 

Term 3 began for students on Thursday with an ANZAC Liturgy and Whole School Assembly during Seminar time.
The Liturgy was led by Mr Josh Norris, Campbell House Coordinator and serving member of the Australian Army Reserve along with the College’s Mission and Service Captain, Dylan Nilo and College Captains, Joey Morton, Harshita Khunda and Alfred Ruzunga. Ably led by College Vice Captain, Bianca Patio, students who participate in Airforce Cadets outside the College formed a Catafalque Party for the Liturgy. As a College we reflected on the theme of ‘Peace’ and prayed for peace around the world and to be peacemakers in our own families and communities.
In the second part of the Assembly we recognised the achievements of students in Term One in Swimming, Cross Country, ACC Cricket (Diversity) and the Solar Car Challenge and were treated to a sneak peak from the upcoming College musical, Aladdin Jnr.
