End of Term
As this term draws to a close and we move into the Easter break it provides us with an opportunity to pause and reflect on the term. It is hard to believe that only two months ago the state was in lockdown and the school holiday was extended. During the lockdown week, staff had to adapt teaching programs and assessments, planned activities had to be moved and rebooked and the required COVID-19 safety measures put in place. A few College events had to be postponed but the vast majority went ahead as planned, within the shortened time-frame. I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the commitment and professionalism of all the College staff. Staff ensured that the impact of the lockdown and the shortened term had minimal impact on student learning and that opportunities outside of the classroom such as camps, excursions, retreats could go ahead as planned.

Lent
Over the period of Lent, students have been connecting with Project Compassion and learning how through donating money that they can make a difference to the life of someone else who is in a less fortunate position than themselves. Making sacrifices is an important part of Lent, through caring about others we become more understanding of them and their circumstances and less concerned about ourselves. Project Compassion’s theme of ‘Be More’ has allowed us to think how we can have a positive impact on the world. In closing our Liturgy this week I asked the students to continue to ‘Be More’ over the holidays and the rest of the school year, reminding them that even a small change can make a big impact.

Life-Link Fun-Run
The final day for students culminated with our life-link fun-run, an excellent fund-raising event which was enjoyed by all of those who participated. I would like to thank Mr Miotti and the rest of the Physical Education department for their organisation of the event. To all of the medal winners, Well Done! A number of students will be invited to participate in the ACC Cross-Country later in Term 2 based on these results.


Term 2

Term 2 begins for students on Monday 19 April. Students should be in full winter academic uniform from Day 1. The College website provides details around the uniform shop opening hours over the Easter break and the uniform requirements. The Deans of Students can be contacted if you have any issues with regards to student uniforms.

I wish everyone a safe, restful and blessed Easter.
