Principal’s Report: Term 4, Week 1

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Welcome back to Term Four. It is hard to believe that we have reached the final term for the year. I hope the two week break went well for your family.

The last few weeks of this term will be especially important as we hold special events to celebrate the year and the many achievements of our students.

For the first time we will hold a Carols Night for the College community. The evening will be held on Friday, 24 November with carol singing beginning at 6:30pm. A BBQ and refreshments will be available from 5:30pm. Entry tickets (free) will be available from Student Services in each of the sub schools from next week onwards.

The coming weeks for our Year 12s are important. It is a time to complete assignments and prepare for exams. We look forward to celebrating the conclusion of formal lessons with the Year 12 Breakfast and Leavers’ Mass on Friday, 27 October. Please keep all our Year 12s in your thoughts and prayers as they complete their final year with us.

Prayer and Presentation for Junior, Middle and Senior students culminates the academic year and is an event to celebrate the achievements of all our students. All students are expected to attend and I hope all parents/caregivers will support the occasion by attending yourself or making sure your child attends.

Please save the date/s below:

Senior School Prayer and Presentation:
Wednesday, 29 November, 7:00pm STARplex
