Attendance on the day is compulsory and the boys in Years 8-11 receive two hours towards their Waterford Project, once they have contributed their twenty dollar donation and attend on the day. Wear a Hood On Founders day Ms Toomey and students from EREBB will be promoting 'Wear a Hood for the Earth's Common Good'.  Students are encouraged to wear a hoodie and take the pledge, see below: Wear a Hood for the Earth's common good I pledge that I will have confidence in myself, That I will credit myself on success I will try my personal best, I will accept other people’s cultures and their beliefs, I will care for the earth and its environments by treating it with the respect it deserves, That when I wear my hood I will stand for the earth’s common good.

Central Coast Rugby Sevens – Under 13’s
The St Edward’s Under 13’s rugby union side put in a gutsy display at the recent Central Coast Sevens Tournament. With over 18 players unavailable due to rugby league commitments, the boys selected did everything in their power to keep the Eddies’ flag flying with pride on the day. The boys started with a convincing 45-0 win over Narara Valley High School with everyone contributing. Unfortunately, the next game was against St Peter’s Catholic College, Tuggerah, and they were stacked full of strong athletes who were the tournament favourites. Our students never gave up and kept applying the pressure, however, the opposition were far too strong and came away with the win. This left our boys with a 4th place finish, meaning they had to play off in the semi-final against, once again, St Peter’s Catholic College. The game was a repeat of the previous one and every boy showed true character to back up and not relent for the full 14 minutes. St Peter’s Catholic College went on to win the tournament, yet we, the St Edward’s team, certainly entertained the crowd and had fun on the day. Thank you to Mr Foster for supporting us on the day.
