The annual College Cabaret last Friday was a wonderful treat, with music ranging from big-band arrangement to creative vocal harmonies. We thank our Music Department staff, and in particular Mr Aaron Dohse, for ensuring this special event in our calendar of the arts went well.

On Wednesday our girls competed in the Catholic Girls Athletics Carnival at Bridgestone Athletics Stadium. It had been postponed from Term 1 due to COVID-19 restrictions and relocated to a new venue. We are very proud that our team of athletes were declared overall winners of the carnival. We are most grateful for the work of the many coaches and Mr Panos and Miss Slade from the Sports Office.

We encourage any Year 12 students and families who haven’t already done so to complete the MMG education survey this week. It will take about 30 minutes. Senior years Mentor Teachers have been meeting individually with Year 12 students for exit interviews in recent weeks. These family and student surveys and interviews help improve our teaching and learning, pastoral wellbeing, co-curricular, and faith and service offerings.

At the Senior School Assembly on Monday, we announced our College Captains for 2023, Eve Corso and Emmanuel Goh. In week 10 we will announce our House leaders, our leaders of co-curricular and faith and service, and other student leaders. This will enable a good handover with the current leaders and the new student leadership group to hit the ground running in Term 4.

At the assembly, Father Hosking spoke about the leadership qualities of our House Patrons Edmund Campion from England, Stanislaus Kostka from Poland, John Francis Regis from France, and Francis Xavier from Spain…

They were committed to Jesus. Jesus inspired and guided them. They are our heroes of faith and draw something out of us for our time. They help us determine what we stand for and what we can do to make our world a better place, especially for those in bleak and difficult situations. They help us learn about leadership. Christian leadership has some reversals to worldly leadership. It involves seeking truth, goodness, and beauty rather than honour, fame, and glory. It is about being willing to suffer with another rather than being comfortable. It seeks to honour God’s creation, to care for our world, to look after those who are forgotten or disadvantaged. We lead because we believe in redemption and people’s better natures.
