The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week – Be Brave. Make Change. – encourages us to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation for the benefit of all Australians. Please view the link below from Reconciliation Australia.

Be brave make change

Reconciliation Week helps us appreciate our shared cultures and achievements and prompts us to work for reconciliation in Australia. We seek to embrace diversity, walk with the marginalised, care for creation, and live out a faith that does justice.

Last week I attended two of the rescheduled SACE Merit Ceremonies hosted by Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC at Government House. She presented the Governor Commendation Award to Evelyn Vincin Walker, and the Minister for Education, Training and Skills, Blair Boyer, presented Merit Certificates to eight of our students who received three or more Merits in their SACE in 2021.

This year’s artist-in-residence is Rosina Possingham. Her photographs manipulate images to create multi-layered, evocatively coloured works. Rosina will work with students in Years 7 to 12, introducing a range of techniques and styles to inspire their creative pursuits. Inspired by nature and in particular gum trees, she will use leaves and flowers to inform students about cropping and layering.

This week our Year 8 students went in House groups to Finniss River Campsite near Goolwa for their “Igxperience”. While half of the students were away, the other half enjoyed school-based activities including a Day of Reflection and a Wellbeing Day. We are grateful to our House Leaders and Mentors for supporting the Year 8 students on this experience.
