Goodbye, Good Luck Year 12
The Final Day What a fitting way to end six years of High School for our graduating class of 2022. The day started with a BBQ breakfast which, as always, was very well received by the boys. It was wonderful to see both staff and students coming together and talking about future opportunities over a bacon and egg roll.  Recognition from the whole school community came about in the form of a guard of honour walk through, which took the boys around the quad to a standing ovation from the rest of the student body. This walk ended with the traditional tree planting ceremony. The boys also got to play their end of year game of touch and football on the oval. These high stakes games were played in great spirit and with great energy. There was also an opportunity for some to go and support the Opens Rugby league team competing in the National Schoolboy Trophy which was a fantastic occasion and great to see so many supporting their school mates. The day finished with a combined mass and awards ceremony. This was a truly special way to finish and it was wonderful to see so many proud parents and family members in the audience. Congratulations to all the award winners and special mention to the Sportsman of the Year, Sebastian Plaister and the College Dux of 2022, Fergus Clydesdale. We wish all the boys and their families every success over the coming weeks and months and look forward to seeing what this group of young men can achieve. Mr Alex Powell Year 12 Pastoral Leader Graduation Mass The Year 12 Graduation Mass celebrated by Father Vince was a fitting farewell for our students and their families. At this Mass one of our students, Luke Richards responded to the Gospel. His response was insightful and exemplified the characteristics that as a staff we aspire to instill in our students after six years at St Edward’s College. The music provided by the students and our music staff was of the highest quality and provided much joy for those in attendance. During supper, after Mass, a wonderful convivial atmosphere prevailed in the foyer of the ERC as students, parents and the staff mingled. A highlight of the night was the rendition of the College song which will live long in the memory of our graduating class. A big thank you to all those who contributed to this delightful occasion.

Book Week
During Week 6, the Library was buzzing with all things books! We had daily ‘Guess the Book’ competitions, Kahoot, the Harry Potter escape room, a Sherlock Holmes ‘who dunnit?’ and plenty of other book related activities. The boys were great participants, and their competitive nature really shone through with the highly coveted canteen vouchers up for grabs daily. Our virtual Harry Potter escape room saw the boys working together to solve the puzzles to progress through each online room, and our Sherlock Holmes ‘who dunnit?’ had teams racing around the school to collect clues in order to solve the case – it was Longworth, with the sword, motivated by the manuscript in case you were wondering… On Wednesday, Tim Selwyn from Girri Girra Aboriginal Experiences came in to share stories and cultural knowledge with the boys. He spoke about Aboriginal men’s business and the importance of being respectful of others and how it is vitally important to listen in order to learn. On Friday, Book Week finished with a bang with staff and students coming dressed as their favourite book characters. At the assembly Mr Griffin shared a reading from his favourite series ‘Game of Thrones’ by George R R Martin to kick things off and then we celebrated our best dressed students with prizes. The photobooth was one of the highlights of the week and it was great to see staff and students embrace their inner child and have some fun all in the name of reading for pleasure. Thank you to all the staff and students who were involved in creating games and promoting Book Week and a special thank you to all who came dressed up – it created a wonderful atmosphere. Congratulations to our competition winners: Monday: Jett Heaney, Tom Roth, Mason Potter, Flynn Zammit and Hudson Sky Tuesday: Tom Barry and Billy Fennell Wednesday: Harry Evans, Phelix de Vries and Ike Diffin Thursday: Ben Stewart, Jivesh Shonak, Abhishek Thomas (with the assistance of Mr Le Page and Miss Nowalinski), Keenan White and Max Stride. Friday: Luka Coughlan-Berg, Max Bird, Lorenzo Arango, Ben Weisbaum, Matthew Xuereb and Ronan Bishop. We can’t wait to do it all again next year! The Library Team     [foogallery id="38900"]

Music Performances
Year 12 Music Evening On Monday night our wonderful Year 12 Music students performed a selection of their pieces to a very appreciative audience of family, friends and staff. It was a fitting evening celebrating their efforts and achievements over the HSC Music course and an opportunity to share their love of music and performance skills with a wider audience before sitting for their HSC performance examination in Week 9. This event was expertly crewed by the Year 11 Entertainment class who did an excellent job. The atmosphere in the room and sense of connection our performers felt supporting their peers was truly lovely to be part of. We wish all our Year 12 Musicians the very best and we are very proud of their accomplishments. Performance for Year 8 On Tuesday  Year 8 were treated to a Music concert featuring some of our HSC Music students and some up and coming performers from Years 10 and 11. The event was crewed by Year 12 Entertainment students. The concert showcased a diverse range of genres and was performed to a very enthusiastic audience, providing our musicians with an avenue to hone their performance skills. The performers are to be congratulated on their excellent contributions to the event and  Year 8 are to be commended on their exemplary behaviour as an engaged and supportive audience.   Images from the Performances [smallgallery fooid="38840"]   Performance for Year 8   https://youtu.be/9OP3N9VcuBI   Year 12 HSC Performance   https://youtu.be/8iSRyrwPbcM
