67th Annual College Swimming Carnival
What an interesting day we had for our 67th Annual College Swimming Carnival at Woy Woy PLC on Friday 7 February. The day had several challenges, with torrential rain, power outages, difficulty with communication and announcements and a move back to the old days of whistle starts. Aside from this, our staff made the necessary adjustments and our boys continued to get in and have a go and enjoy the day. A big thank you to all involved as it meant that we got on with things and ran a successful carnival in trying circumstances. [smallgallery fooid="23766"] The day had many highlights: Records Broken Daniel McLoughlin broke the following Under 16's records: 50 m Freestyle in 25:97 sec 50 m Butterfly in 26:79 sec 100 m Freestyle in 5689 sec Age Champions Age Student House Under 12 Alex McCoombe-Lopez Spillane Under 13 Equal Lachlan Bunney Knights Under 13 Equal Archie Carpenter Doolan Under 13 Equal Sam Cormack Shanahan Under 14 Ashton Walters Knights Under 15 Joseph Bonham Doolan Under 16 Daniel McLoughlin Doolan Opens Kyle Graham Doolan House Champion Points 1st place - Doolan with 1210 points 2nd place - Spillane with 837 points 3rd place - Knights with 751 points 4th place - Shanahan with 731 points Our College team will now progress to the BBSSSA Carnival on Monday 16 March at SOPAC Homebush.

Commencement Mass
Be the Best You Can Be 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 and Deacon Paul from 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 this topic. 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. Thank you to all the parents and friends of the College who were able to attend on the day. Mr Beacroft Director of Mission and Identity [smallgallery fooid="23643"]

Welcome Year 7
It was exciting to watch Year 7 arrive on their first day! They looked terrific in their new uniforms and sharp haircuts. 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 teachers. 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! [smallgallery fooid="23353"]

Annual Awards Evening
On Thursday 12 December, the College community celebrated our students' academic success at the Annual Awards Evening. To receive an award at the Annual Awards Evening, students need to have received nominations from their teachers across the entire year (Semester 1 and Semester 2). Each Semester all teachers nominate students in their classes who they believe have performed consistently or academically well. The students receiving an 'A' in their courses will automatically receive an Academic nomination. Students who receive a determined amount of 'consistent effort' nominations across the year will receive an award in that category. Students who receive a determined amount of 'Academic' nominations or A’s across the year will receive that award. Any student receiving A’s in the majority of their courses will receive an Outstanding Academic Award. During the evening College Special and Memorial Awards were also announced including Edmund Rice Awards.  We congratulate all students who received an award on the evening, your hard work and dedication to your studies is something to be proud of.

College Swimming Carnival
Annual College Swimming Carnival As advertised in the annual calendar, we will be conducting our swimming carnival on Friday 7 February at Peninsula Leisure Centre, Woy Woy.  The following are some important practical details regarding the carnival. Transport Normal school buses will run in the morning / afternoon and students will catch a bus from the College to the pool and back again in the afternoon. Other students may make their own way to the carnival if appropriate. All boys making their own way to the carnival need to be at the pool by 8.45am, unless they are competing in the 200 m events (see next point). Any student competing in 200 m events need to be at the pool by 8.30 am at the very latest. Buses will not be at the pool by 8.30 am so these students will need to make their own transport arrangements. All students requiring afternoon bus transport will return by bus to the College and catch the afternoon school buses under supervision as normal. Uniform For identification purposes, it is imperative that all students in Years 7 – 10 attend the carnival in their College sports uniform as they would do on a normal Friday.  They can change into their colour house clothes at the pool.  Only Years 11 and 12 are allowed to wear mufti/casual clothing. General Directions As maximum participation is the aim of the day, points will be allocated for every student entering an event. Any boy who attends the carnival is required to participate by: Swimming in all events appropriate to his ability level; Assisting teaching staff in conducting the carnival in some capacity ie: official duties; For supervision purposes when boys are not in races, they are to remain in the stands grouped according to their age divisions. Only the Years 10,11 and 12 will be permitted to gather on the grassed area. Boys need to be equally prepared for cool or warmer weather and bring appropriate sun protection ie sunscreen, as the marshalling area is outdoors. Limited canteen facilities will be available – boys are encouraged to bring their own food & drink for the day. It is imperative that students do not bring large sums of money or valuable audio equipment such as Ipods etc. In these situations, it is impossible for the College to take responsibility for items that may go missing. As the carnival is held indoors, it will be held even in the event of obvious inclement weather. Boys who live locally or who are being picked up by their parents can leave to go home directly from the pool at the conclusion of the carnival, which should be at 2.30 pm. No boy will be permitted to leave the pool precinct prior to the conclusion of the carnival, as rolls need to be marked and the usual important formalities carried out.  I particularly ask that we have parental co-operation in this matter. Parents, carers and relatives are more than welcome to attend on the day however it is recommended you bring your own chair as seating is at a premium. The College Prefects and Leaders will be required at the pool early in the day to assist with carnival set up and again at the end of the day to assist with packing up of the carnival. The co-operation of boys and their families with these guidelines will ensure that it is an enjoyable day for all in attendance.
