Student Led Learning Conferences – Years 7 to 12
During Term 3 parents/carers, teachers and students will have two opportunities to meet online and reflect on the learning that has taken place this year to date. The dates and details for Student Led Conferences will be: Thursday 25 July (Week 1) from 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm Thursday 1 August (Week 2) from 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm These conferences will be held online via Microsoft Teams. Teachers will call the students on their Microsoft Teams account at the scheduled booking time to make contact – students must ensure they are logged in to Microsoft Teams using their St Edward's College email. It is preferable that students use their school laptop for this. Microsoft Teams meetings will not be recorded by teaching staff and we request that parents and students not record meetings either. All conferences are intended to support your child in developing a greater sense of responsibility for their learning. It will be compulsory for students to attend all scheduled meetings with their parents/carers. Students will be expected to take an active role in leading their parents/carers and teachers through a reflection on their learning in that subject. There will be an expectation that students complete a reflection on their progress for each subject prior to the meeting. The student, parents/carers and teachers will then reflect on and evaluate the learning goals set and discuss strategies to address areas of challenge and achieve learning growth throughout Semester Two. The Student Led Conference bookings are managed with an internet-based booking system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO).

College Athletics Carnival
This year we just snuck in before the weekend’s rain! A fantastic week of weather and a looming weekend forecast meant that a few options had to be put in place to accommodate the carnival. Fortunately, the weather held off and we were able to run the carnival in its entirety. The overnight cloud cover meant we arrived with dry grounds for the start of our day. We kicked off with the 1500 m races, followed by the 200 m races as we awaited our student arrivals. Age groups then rotated through three field events before we returned to the velodrome for the 400 m races. Age groups then returned to finish the final three rotations before we watched the 100 m finals and the relay races, as the school came together in their house groups. Highlights for the day included: The excellent behaviour and overall participation of the students in attendance. It was great to see them embrace the community spirit of the carnival and enjoy having a race and a laugh with their mates.

Young Musicians Shine at Music Enrichment Program
Years 4 and 5 Music Enrichment Program On June 4, enthusiastic Year 4 and 5 students, nominated by their Catholic primary schools, gathered at St Edward's College for a memorable Music Enrichment program. This exciting event, organised by Mrs Annette Rankin and supported by talented Year 9 and 10 students from both St Edward's and St Joseph's Colleges, aimed to ignite a passion for music and performance among the young participants. Throughout the day, the students embarked on an enriching musical journey filled with diverse activities. They participated in an African drum workshop, a vocal workshop, explored innovative sounds with computer music, and learned to play and sing a group band piece, "Three Little Birds." This piece was specially arranged to accommodate all instruments and voices, ensuring that students of every skill level could join in and contribute.  The sessions were run by our Performing Arts faculty: Mrs Annette Rankin, Mrs Jodie Connor, Mr Paul Toole and Mr Justin Kane. The culmination of their hard work and creativity was showcased in a special performance for their families, highlighting the students' ensemble talents and enthusiasm. The Music Enrichment program not only provided a platform for young musicians to shine but also fostered a sense of community and collaboration across different school years and institutions. We would like to thank all staff and students involved in making this day a success. Your dedication and effort have made a lasting impact on the young musicians who participated.   [foogallery id="53348"]   [embed][/embed]

The College Founder's Day Mass at St Edward's once again stood out as a special and truly memorable occasion, emblematic of the strong bonds within the College community. The event was graced by numerous distinguished guests, each with a connection to the College spanning many years. It was heartening to witness the presence of former Christian Brothers, Principals, and esteemed members of the EREA community, all coming together to honour the College's legacy. Throughout the ceremony, the students exemplified reverence, respect, and a deep sense of prayerfulness, reflecting the values instilled within them by the College. Under the guidance of Father Vince Casey, who presided over the Mass, the atmosphere was one of solemnity and spiritual significance. A special commendation is owed to the talented musicians, comprising both staff and students, whose performances enriched the Mass with their melodic renditions. The band, meticulously prepared by Mrs Rankin and Mr Toole, showcased their dedication and skill, enhancing the overall ambiance of the ceremony with their harmonious contributions. Heartfelt appreciation extends to all who played a part in this magnificent community celebration. Their collective efforts and commitment have undoubtedly contributed to making this Founder's Day Mass a cherished and memorable event for all who attended.
