This week will be the final week of the first term and classes will conclude on Holy Thursday at 2:25 pm . Monsignor Murphy has provided a reflection on the meaning of Easter in today’s newsletter and I encourage you to read this as we prepare for commemoration of resurrection. This will be the last newsletter for the term.
You hopefully have noticed our increased marketing around our Open Day on 26 April and the Year 7 2022 Parent Information night on 21 April and I would ask you to spread the word among your networks so that we can communicate effectively to prospective families.
Last week we held the College Athletics on Tuesday and what started as a bleak day weather wise soon became a wonderful day of participation, strength and skill. By getting in and having a go, most students certainly embraced our school theme for 2021 – “Be Brave, not Perfect”. I congratulate all students and staff involved in the day, with particular appreciation to Tamika Burdett for organising the day.
The Parent Reference Group has been established to provide parents with a voice and will feedback to the College’s Leadership team, as well advocating for the College within the community. This group meets around twice a term. Jo Martin will head up this group and you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was fortunate enough to have been asked to be the mystery reader to the Prep Grade at St Mick’s last week. While it was wonderful to be welcomed in the school again, it certainly was a challenge for me to deliver a reading of ‘I am going on a Bear Hunt’ while maintaining some control over the enthusiastic students – this was my attempt to “Be Brave, Not Perfect”.
I would like to conclude by wishing all members of the College Community a safe and reflective Easter break and school holidays over the next few weeks and I look forward to learning more in Term 2.
