It was a very busy Term 3 here at Lumen Christi College! Some of the term highlights included the Year 12 Emmaus Retreat, the Interhouse Athletics Carnival, NAIDOC Week and Lumen Day.
We were delighted to be able to offer our students so many experiences this term after many of our events and activities had to be postponed earlier in the year due to Covid-19. View the video above to hear about what we got up to this term, and check out the stories below as well as the links to photo albums of College events on our Facebook page.
