Years 7 to 12 Learning Conferences – Term 2
At the commencement of Term 2, all students will be provided with an opportunity to complete a Learning Reflection in each of their courses. This reflection will provide the basis for the discussion at the Online Learning Conferences which will be held on Wednesday April 28 (Term 2 Week 2) and Thursday May 13 (Term 2 Week 4). The purpose of these conferences is to allow the boys to articulate how they believe they are progressing in each course and where they may need some further assistance to bring about improvement. This approach is designed to encourage boys to take greater responsibility for their learning and to establish goals for ongoing improvement. It will also be a good opportunity to discuss the Mid-Course assessments for Year 12 and the interim reports for Years 7-11. It is the expectation that all students participate in this online meeting with their parents and that bookings are made at times when students and parents can both attend. Parents will be able to book appointments for either of the evenings that suit.  Please note that conferences will be available for bookings between the hours of 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm and all conferences will be of seven (7) minutes duration. To ensure that students can get home on time, timetabled classes will end at the completion of Period 4 (1:20 pm) and students will be permitted to leave the College early under the following guidelines: Only students who have prior online permission from their parents/carers will be permitted to leave the College early. Students are not permitted to catch public buses prior to 3:15 pm. Students must be either picked up by their parents/carer or walk home. Seniors who have the normal appropriate permissions in place can drive home. If you wish to give permission for your son to leave early, complete the brief online permission form below for each of your sons at St Edward’s. Parents are asked to complete the online permission form by 9:00 am Monday 26 April. Please note: Handwritten notes, emails or permission over the telephone will not be accepted. Permission to leave application form. The Learning Conference bookings will be managed through an internet-based booking system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO). It will save time for parents, staff, and students.  Using this system, you will be able to book the conference times that suit you best. The teachers will then contact students at the scheduled time via a Microsoft Teams meeting. This will mean that parents and students will need to be available at booked times with Microsoft Teams open on a device. This process will be explained to students and the process for student reflection will be further explained to students in their classes. Access to the system will be available from Wednesday 21 April at 7.00 pm and will be closed off for bookings the day before interviews. Please see below for the Parent Teacher On-Line link and further instructions If you encounter any problems using PTO, please contact the school office on 4321 6400.

Easter Liturgy
The tradition of sharing our Holy Week celebration with St Joseph’s to remember the significance of Easter continued this year. Once again the ERC was packed with students and staff from both Colleges. This was a solemn ceremony of prayer, song, and drama. The Passion of Christ is followed by witnessing the Stations of the Cross. Our Year 10 and 12 students were outstanding in presenting the final days of Jesus. The students from St Joseph’s performed a liturgical dance which was reverent and performed to the highest standard. The musicians on the day, under the guidance of the music staffs 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.

A Day in the Life of St Edward’s College
A Day in the Life of St Edward's College for Year 6 Students On 4 March the College welcomed, for the day, nearly 300 Year 6 boys representing some 35 primary schools from Brooklyn to Toukley. Feedback from the boys was that they had a great day and enjoyed learning experiences in Science, French, Music, Art, Woodwork, PE and seeing our learning centre/library. They had the opportunity to produce a piece of artwork, a wooden box in woodwork, as well as working in groups to build a paper straw replica of the Eiffel Tower during their French lesson. Please see the images from the day below.

College Swimming Selection Carnival
On Tuesday 23 February we finally got the opportunity to run the revised College Swimming Selection Carnival. Sixty-two students registered for events across the six age groups and made their way down to Gosford Pool. An overcast, windy, and chilly day confronted our swimmers. What the carnival lacked in atmosphere, the boys certainly made up for  with their competitive spirit and behaviour on the day. Some fantastic racing took place with several very close heats testing the video replay, which amounted to several discussions from the judges and timekeepers before the results were awarded. The following Age Champions were crowned on the day: Age Group Age Champion House Under 12 Cooper Smith Knights Under 13 Tahj Regattieri Shanahan Under 14 Archie Carpenter Doolan Under 15 Ashton Walters Knights Under 16 Jayden Redfern Doolan Opens Daniel McLoughlin Doolan The modified program allowed us some flexibility with the events we ran on the day. Instead of the usual house relays, we decided to run an all-age relay for each House and a ‘Champions of Champions Race’ that was handicapped for each of our 50 m Freestyle Age Group Champions. While the conditions did not lend themselves to breaking records, the competition between the House Groups was very close. The final outcome saw Doolan (White) being crowned Champions for 2021 in a very close result over Shanahan. The final scores were as follows: Doolan 265 points Shanahan 260 points Knights 233 points Spillane 204 points Congratulations to all our winners who will represent the College at the Broken Bay (BBSSSA) Swimming Carnival at SOPAC, Homebush on Thursday 11 March.

Commencement Mass
Be The Best You Can Be. After a year without a whole school mass due to COVID-19, it was great to be able to gather again. The College Commencement Mass was once again a special day for St Edward's. The students were reverent, respectful and prayerful throughout the ceremony presided over by Father Greg the Parish Priest at St Patrick’s Parish. Congratulations must go to all our brilliant musicians who performed at Mass. Our musicians were thoroughly prepared by our music staff led by Mr Toole. Their performances added so much to the prayerful atmosphere of the mass. Father Greg spoke eloquently on this year’s theme, Be the best you can be.  Our College Principal, Mr Bonnici, also spoke about the College Aspirational statement which includes a summary of our future College goals. All who heard these speakers would understand that the men of St Edward's College are expected to put their best effort into all they do. The students were also encouraged to use their gifts and talents to involve themselves in as many activities as possible. Mr Beacroft Director of Mission and Identity     [foogallery id="29873"]

Welcome Year 7
It was so exciting to watch the St Edward's Class of 2026 arriving for their first day.  They looked terrific in their new uniforms and sharp haircuts. A big thank you to parents for embracing our COVID safe protocols and saying goodbye to their sons at the school gate. Everyone was very brave and I only noticed a few tears – from the parents not the boys! After a few words of welcome from our Principal, Mr Mark Bonnici, the boys received their book packs, met their Home Room teacher and headed off to join the world of high school. A busy day lay ahead, with tours of the school led by senior students and a full day of orientation activities with their Core class. Meeting new friends was a highpoint for many, although lunch time exploring the new canteen, the well-resourced library, the basketball courts and the ovals came a close second. A big welcome to our latest crop of Eddies boys! Heidi Englund Pastoral Leader - Year 7 Home Rooms [foogallery id="29527"]   First Week [smallgallery fooid="29616"]
