We look forward to Intercol continuing next week. Congratulations to all involved in this annual competition with Mercedes across a number of activities. Our schools are similar in ethos, and this is played in a good spirit.

We also wish those engaged in finals for hockey, basketball, and aerobics to perform well and enjoy their opportunity to do their very best.

We invite all Senior School students and families to a Gathering and Thanksgiving Mass in House groups. The dates are Xavier – Wednesday 31 August, Regis – Thursday 1 September, Campion – Wednesday 7 September, Kostka – Thursday 8 September. This will be a good occasion to meet with House Leaders and Mentor Teachers. The evening will commence at 7.00 pm and conclude by 9:00 pm.

The subject information for Year 9 into 10 will be live streamed to families on Tuesday 23 August. The curriculum team continue to guide our students through these next stages of their academic journey.

Families are encouraged to attend the university and TAFE open days starting this weekend to get information about courses and pathways. There are both on-campus and online opportunities to experience this. Mrs Lisa McDonald, our Vocational Services Coordinator, is also available to meet with Year 12 students individually as they plan for 2023.

The Year 12 SACE drama production of Pride and Prejudice in the Flynn Theatre this week was impressive. A large cast performed this rendering of the play by Jane Austen with enthusiasm. We are grateful for the work of many staff, especially drama teacher, Mrs Karen Sheldon, and the technical team of Mr Allan Turnbull and Mr Warren Bradley.

The Mass of the Assumption was celebrated by Fathers Hosking and Tanaya on Monday 15 August for the whole Senior School in the Dennett Centre. Father Tanaya’s homily reminded us of the importance of Mary’s special role in the Church and how we are called to follow the example of her wholehearted ‘yes’ to what was asked of her.
