Year 12 Retreat
Year 12 Retreats at 'Winbourne' Mulgoa The retreats of 2018 will be remembered for the great enthusiasm and involvement of all students who attended. Year 12 were given the opportunity to participate in important spiritual experiences on their three day Retreat amid the peaceful and serene environment at the Mulgoa Retreat Centre. They didn’t waste this opportunity. Thanks to the staff from our College for their dedication to the Retreat program. Many staff from the College were instrumental in leading the boys through reflection, prayer, bushwalks and discussions about ‘Images of God’, ‘What it is to be a Man in the 21st Century’, ‘Goal Setting’, ‘The Importance of Communication’, and their future directions. The celebration liturgy organised by the students was very special as it is the last Retreat for this cohort. Parents and staff should be very proud of the input and maturity shown by Year 12. Our guest speakers for the retreat were Mr Damien Stockwell and Mrs Nicole Thomas. They both spoke brilliantly and the boys left with lots to think about. Their talks were informative and inspiring and were well received by the boys. I am confident that these quality experiences will have a lasting effect upon our boys in preparing them for the future. I have no doubt that in years to come, many boys will remember these few days as being very significant in their lives. I thank and congratulate all Year 12 for the quality of their involvement. The staff at Mulgoa were lavish in their praise of these fine young men from St Edward's. They could not speak highly enough of their positive attitude, friendliness, cooperation, courtesy, and willingness to enter completely into the spirit of the Retreat. A typical comment about the boys was, “I can’t get over how well rounded they are, probably because they have been exposed to a variety of social justice experiences.” This particular group is a great credit to their families and the College. A special thank you to Mr McCauley the Year 12 Coordinator, and Mrs Toomey our Religious Education Coordinator for all the great work they did during these important days of review and reflection.

Founders Day Mass
The College Founders Day Mass was once again a special day for the St Edward's College Community. The students were reverent, respectful and prayerful throughout the ceremony. Mass was presided over by Father Paul the Parish Priest of Kincumber. Congratulations must go to all our brilliant musicians who performed at Mass.  Students in the band were from Years 9, 10 and 11 and were thoroughly prepared by Mr Toole and Mr Drozdzewski. Their performances added so much to the prayerful atmosphere of the mass. The tradition of recognising long serving staff continued at the conclusion of Mass. Fifteen staff received awards for their long years of service to the College. Thanks to all the parents and friends of the College who were able to attend on the day. A big thank you to all who contributed to this wonderful community celebration. [smallgallery fooid="11542"] [embed]https://youtu.be/YmTzw4e7h8g?rel=0&modestbranding=1[/embed]

Anzac Day 2018
Anzac Day 2018 was observed at the College on Tuesday 1 May 2018. Throughout the ceremony the boys were superbly respectful  - you literally could have heard a pin drop. Captain Adam Bing led the service faultlessly, with assistance from Vice-Captains Freddie Burraston and Patrick Rosee, who also laid the wreath. College Deputy Principal, Mr Jay Sutton and the French Coordinator, Mrs Patricia Papeix spoke of the importance of Anzac to themselves, and to all of us. We were blessed to have the support of the National Service 1951-72 Re-Enactment Unit, led by Captain David Myers. These gentlemen provided the military spit and polish that made the ceremony so special. In addition, the Town Crier for Central Coast Council, Mr Stephen Clarke, played the Last Post and the Rouse on the bugle. We thank them for their ongoing support. Special thanks must also go to Mrs Kylie Beynon for the beautiful handmade wreath, with support from Inbloom Florist, Erina Fair. [smallgallery fooid="11508"]

Easter Liturgy
The tradition of sharing our Holy Thursday celebration with St Joseph’s College to remember the significance of Easter continued this year. Once again the ERC was packed with students, staff and parents from both Colleges. The highlight this year was the presence of the Year of Youth Cross which was a focus throughout the liturgy. We also thank Old Boy of the College Mr Matt French for his personal sharing which the students found interesting. This was a solemn ceremony of prayer, song, and drama. The Passion of Christ is followed by witnessing the Stations of the Cross. Year 10 students were outstanding in presenting the final days of Jesus. This year for the first time, the students from St Joseph’s performed a liturgical dance and it was excellent. The musicians on the day, under the guidance of music staff from both Colleges, produced brilliant performances and created a great atmosphere. Congratulations to all the students who prepared so thoroughly for this wonderful community event. A final thank you to all who contributed to the most important liturgical event on the Christian calendar especially Mrs Green who did such a wonderful job coordinating the liturgy.   [smallgallery fooid="11247"] [embed]https://youtu.be/pov-ZC_YGBE?rel=0&modestbranding=1[/embed]
