Opens Rugby League NSWCCC Cup
Opens Rugby League – NSWCCC Cup Round 16 Game v Loyola Senior High School After winning our way through the NSWCCC Cup Sydney Gala Day at Smith Park, East Hills on Friday 11 May, the team moved into the Round of 16. The draw was finalised at the NSWCCC Selection Trials and we drew Loyola Senior High School, Mt Druitt. The team headed out for their warm-up to see a very big Loyola team already on the field. This set the tone for their preparation as the boys got ready for a bruising encounter, knowing full well they needed to be prepared to play tough. A very nervous energy surrounded our preparation. The plan from the outset was to move the bigger opposition around and take some out of their legs early. Our first set from the kick-off certainly relieved some of the nerves as the team went about moving the ball to our edges and the boys completed a very good set to finish tackling the opposition just off their try line. A couple of sets end to end followed as both teams got into the grind of the game. Some slick ball movement from the left edge saw Nick Armstrong dive short and momentum taking him over the line to score. A few mistakes in the sets from the kick-off saw Loyola score near the posts to lead 6-4. The team certainly realised that the big Loyola forwards would be right in the game if we gifted them possession in good field position. This seemed to trigger a reaction from the boys as some stiff defence in the ensuing set saw us rewarded with possession in good field position and from there the tries seemed to flow. Playing to our strengths, quick ball movement and speed of play lead to some fantastic tries. Leading 32-4 at half-time. Early in the second half a few handling mistakes crept in to both sides and the half was slow to start. On the back of some quick short side play, Boston Passeri finished off a great attacking raid to run away and score. Loyola rallied to score two late tries, with the eventual score line a win to St Edward’s 42-16. The team now progresses to the NSWCCC Cup Gala Day at St Mary’s on Wednesday 29 August.

College Athletics Carnival
Friday 15 June saw the running of the College Athletics Carnival at Adcock Park. A beautiful blue sky greeted staff and students on arrival and with it a blustery westerly wind that lowered the temperature quiet a bit. This was in direct contrast to the weather from the long weekend but the prevailing winds dried out the oval early in the week, just in time for our carnival. The carnival went ahead without issue and saw some fantastic individual achievements on the day. These included: Age Champions U12        Harley Dimech - Blue U13        Tyrone Dorrell - Green U14        Declan Richardson - Red U15        Cameron Steer - White U16        Sam Wilson - Red Opens    Luke Jacobs - Blue   Records Event New Record Holder House Time/Distance U12 100 m Leo Hong Green 13.77 sec U13 Relay Tyrone Dorrel, Bradley Plumber, Harris Milson, Noah Nakagawa Green 56.70 sec U14 Shot Put Parker Robinson Blue 13.00 m U15 100 m Cameron Steer White 11.33 sec U15 Long Jump Cameron Steer White 6.19 Opens Discus Callum Sutton Red 45.54 m   Champion House Spillane (Red) with 943 points Doolan (White) with 855 points Knights (Green) with 841 points Shanahan (Blue) with 776 points   A big thank you to the staff on the day for their assistance and involvement throughout the carnival.

Students Complete the Sacramental Program
On Friday 8 June, 11 students from the College completed the sacramental program by receiving their remaining sacraments. In a beautiful ceremony presided over by The Most Reverend Bishop Peter Comensoli and Father Tadeusz, our students were received into the Church. With their parents and classmates present each candidate received a certificate to acknowledge the reception of the sacraments. Unfortunately another member of the group, William Browning was not able to receive the sacraments on this day but he will be completing them in the near future. Thanks to all who contributed to this wonderful celebration, especially Mrs Donnelly and Mrs Kirk who were instrumental in producing the Mass booklet. Thanks to Mrs Emmett and our talented choir for providing such prayerful and meaningful hymns throughout the service. The students who were altar servers had some extra duties with the Bishop present and they were outstanding in their role. Thanks also to those who set up the Church and all others who contributed to this significant event in the life of a Catholic school. Students in the Sacramental Program Year 7 Luke McHugh, Toby Kregting, Josh Mercer, Ryan Hughes, Bon Berger, Ethan Hayes, Attikus Ouradnik, Isaac Ryan Year 8 Fergus Clydesdale, Sebastian Maschek Year 10 Mitchell Stapleford A special thank you to Mitchell, who as the oldest member of the group was an exemplary role model.
