From the Principal
The College held its Senior Subject Showcase last Wednesday in the MacKillop Centre.
For the first time, we invited students from grade 4 and above to hear the messages and get an idea of what awaits them in senior education. Mr Naiker gave a useful and potentially frightening overview of how our children change from the age of 9 to their teenage years. The changes in the brain, the emergence of hormones and the pushing of boundaries are just small parts of the rich tapestry of the journey to senior schooling. As a P-12 College, we seek to work in partnership with parents to make this journey as smooth as possible. I hope those families who attended found it useful.
Mr Naiker also spoke of our curriculum growth since 2019. Two years ago, our overall elective (that is, optional) subjects totalled 8. Last Wednesday, we advertised 21 subjects to our senior students. This is tremendous growth and enables us to confidently celebrate a full and rounded curriculum offer.
I am very excited to see the number of community members down to attend our Arts in the Park event next Friday. Thank you so much for your support of our students. This will no doubt be a fantastic evening. Thank you so much Mrs Burke and her committee who have enabled this.
I want to congratulate our Confirmation candidates who received this Sacrament last night at the College. It was a real honour to be with you and your families for this lovely event.
I hope you all have a safe and warm weekend.
