Next Friday, 4 November, we have our annual Speech Day at the Influencers Church, Paradise. It will commence at 11.00 am and conclude about 2.15 pm. This will be Mr Coffey’s final Speech Day as principal. We are blessed to have as our guest speaker our principal for 2023, Ms Barbara Watkins.

We presented two special awards at our Senior School Assembly: the Student Citizenship Award from the Order of Australia Association to Mia Eliseo in Year 11 and the Ampol All Rounder award to Maisie Keenihan in Year 12.

This assembly also farewelled our Year 12s, with Year 8 students Olivia Dry and Tom O’Dea providing fine tributes to them. The Year 12s were missioned to make the world brighter. We encouraged them to actively engage with the world, and not simply be carried along by it. As they enter a new culture beyond our community, our hope is that they be alert to anything that is not worthy of them. We want them to go forth and to make the world more honest, more inclusive, more just, more decent, more humanely uplifting, and a happier place to live.

At this assembly Mr O’Brien spoke of our immersions and encouraged our Year 9s to volunteer for these to Ikara Flinders Ranges, Bathurst Island, and Daly River, and our Year 10s to consider the immersion to Timor-Leste or Cambodia and Vietnam in 2023.

Congratulations to our Year 6s who performed in the Ye-Ha musical last weekend. It was an energetic and enjoyable show of great talent and collaboration.

Please remember to participate in the P&F fundraising Fun Run’s Splash & Dash event on Sunday 6 November 2022 from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm at the Junior School.

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.
