Today we held our athletics carnivals where students from Years 3 to 6 and 7 to 12 participated with great excitement and enthusiasm. Nearly the whole student body participated, and we thank our staff and students for their efforts in organising this event.

On 8 March we celebrated International Women's Day with various activities to promote gender inclusivity and empower women. The theme of DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality is crucial in our rapidly advancing world. It is important to better promote STEM in girl’s education and women’s careers to create a safer, more inclusive, and equitable digital world for all.

This week our Senior School held chapel services in House groups, where we reflected on stories through music. Four students or staff from each House selected a favourite piece of music and shared its story, leading to wonderful performances and poignant reflections on family, friends, growing up, and finding God.

During our senior years Mass on Thursday, Fr Frank Brennan SJ spoke about the Indigenous Voice to Parliament. Father Brennan is an Australian Jesuit priest, lawyer, and social justice advocate who spoke at our 2019 Speech Day prize giving ceremony. The Indigenous Voice advocates for First Nations people to provide advice to Parliament on legislation and policies that directly affect their lives, communities, and cultures, allowing them to provide a better perspective in decisions that impact them. Fr Frank argues cogently for the 'yes' case but expresses concern that it may not be accepted at a referendum if a proposed controversial clause concerning 'executive government' is included.

Saturday 1 April is the Family Fun Fair on the Bourke Oval at the Senior school from 11.00 am to 5.30 pm. This exciting day in the College’s social calendar has something for everybody, from delicious food to market stalls, fun-filled rides and musical entertainment; all whilst connecting with friends in the Ignatian Community.

Fr Peter Hosking SJ

OREMUS (Let us pray)

We remember all in our College community. May our prayers comfort those suffering at this time. May God’s blessing be a source of support in their sorrow and loss, and bring courage, patience, and hope.

“Ask and you shall receive … knock and the door will be opened unto you.” (Matt 7:7)

If you would like someone to be remembered by the College community in prayer (even anonymously), please provide details to the Rector, class or Mentor Teacher, or House Leader.
