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"]

Annual Academic Awards Presentation Assembly
On Wednesday 9 December, the College community celebrated our students' academic success at the Annual Awards Assemblies.  Due to COVID restrictions the event was live streamed to allow parents to view the presentation. To receive an award 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 event, College Special and Memorial Awards were also announced including Edmund Rice Awards.  We congratulate all students who received an award, your hard work and dedication to your studies is something to be proud of. Please see the links below for Award recipients.   2020 Award and Liturgy booklet - Years 7, 8, 9   2020 Award and Liturgy booklet - Years 10 and 11     Images from the Years 7, 8 and 9 Assembly, to view the recording of the assembly CLICK HERE   [smallgallery fooid="29223"]     Images from the Years 10 and 11 Assembly, to view the recording of the assembly CLICK HERE   [smallgallery fooid="29334"]

Year 12 Graduation
The 2020 St Edward’s Formal was a resounding success. The students arrived in a diverse array of formal attire from the classic black suit, to the tartan three piece, all the way to a beautiful powder purple suit with matching hair and white sneakers. The irony of the immaculate outfits the boys wore (with their shirts tucked in and incredible neat haircuts) was that this was not always how they presented in their time at the College. They all looked great on the evening and showed just how far they had come from the innocence of their start in Year 7. The night was less formal than previous years with minimal speeches, but we had the opportunity to listen to Jackson Robb, Joey Hussein, and Daniel Brazier for a final time. Their speeches were heartfelt and were well received by their peers, a fitting finale to their time at St Edward's. The marquee with its massive dance floor was a great hit, being well utilised up until our 10 pm curfew. The students and their partners had a great night and genuinely appreciated the efforts the College went to, in hosting the Formal on such a tight timeline for preparation. I would like to thank all the staff who worked so hard in putting the night together. Cathy Ginsberg, Meagan Armstrong and Julie Connors for their tireless preparations, Mark Bonnici for his vision and drive to host the formal when so many schools cancelled their formals. A big thanks to the staff that worked on the evening; Paul English working with the amazing student helpers, Gerry Summerhayes as MC, and Sarah Evans for taking photos. Thank you to everyone for making the night so successful. [smallgallery fooid="28960"]
