With the challenges of 2021 beginning to become a memory it is time to turn our attention to 2022.
Firstly, I am pleased to announce the Student Leaders of 2022.
Our College Captains will be Colby McDonald and Lotus Martin. These two young women were recognised by staff and students as strong leaders.
Our College Vice Captains will be Andrew Taylor and Maggie Heinrich. Again, the strength of character these two have shown was clearly evident.
The Senior Leaders from Year 12 next year will be:
Bridget Botterill – Leader of Wellbeing
Mia McGrath– Inclusivity Activities Leader
Dylan Avery– Leader of Learning Innovation
We are now calling for our current Year 10s to nominate for a range of Leadership positions in 2022, so please encourage your son or daughter to consider applying for leadership.
Last week the College held our annual AGM for the School Advisory Council and I am pleased to announce that Mrs Jo Martin was elected Council Chair and the Mr Andrew Sostheim was elected as Deputy Chair. I encourage you to reach out to members of our Advisory Committee if you have any concerns or questions regarding the College and of course I always welcome direct feedback as well.
Next Monday sees a range of restrictions lifted and our students will be able to attend excursions and off site sports venues. This is exciting for all. There are still some restrictions on the use of masks inside and the need for over 16y y.o. to show evidence of being double vaxxed to attend key events.
We look forward to the Year 12 Graduation Mass and Dinner at the Horsham Golf Club on Friday 19 November.
Today is World Teachers Day. We are very fortunate at St Brigid’s to have a hard working and committed staff team who approach their work in a professional way every day. This has been very evident in 2021! We missed International Educational Support day this year during lockdown however we will find time to thank our wonderful administration and support staff too.
I hope you have some luck on the Melbourne Cup and enjoy this public holiday on Tuesday.
I will be in Swan Hill from Wednesday to Friday next week, participating in the MacKillop College school review, garnering good knowledge for our review next year.
