Good Luck Year 12
As a way of supporting Year 12 and wishing them good luck, staff were invited to send a recorded message. The message may have been one of good luck, support, motivation, positive aspirations, a shout out to a particular class, tips etc. It goes without saying, Year 12 are experiencing many challenges individually and collectively in their final year. This was a great way of reminding them they are part of a community, and they are in our thoughts. Thank you to staff for taking up the invitation to wish the Year 12’s good luck in their upcoming assessment tasks. The messages were sent to Year 12's on the eve of their final assessments.

Waterford Ideas
Lockdown offers a time for students to complete Waterford, perhaps by looking outside the circle of what they may normally choose.   For example, boys could complete hours via: An online first aid course Phone calls to people in their family who may be isolated eg grandparents, family overseas, neighbours. Advocacy campaigns, through websites eg poverty, disability, aged care etc Reflections in their Waterford booklet (on CANVAS). Students can use time they spend writing reflections, in their Waterford hours. Any time students spend on these campaigns should be signed off by parents.

College Athletics Carnival
The College Athletics Carnival was run and won on Tuesday 1 June at Adcock Park. In what was one of the best days for a carnival in recent memory, a bright sunny and windless day greeted our enthusiastic competitors. We started the day with the 1500 m races, into the 200 m races and then into the field events. Students moved around the carnival in their age groups competing for House points and the opportunity to represent the College at the Broken Bay Athletics Carnival (Tuesday 24 August). To break this up, the boys came back to the velodrome in the middle of the day for a lunch break and the running of the 400 m races. The boys then returned to the final field events before returning to the velodrome for the 100 m finals and the relays. Highlights for the day included: Age Champions Age Group 1st Place House Under 12 Malcom Hawkins Knights Under 13 Riley Carmody-Smith Knights Under 14 Jay Clarke Spillane Under 15 Christopher Rae Lincoln Markulin Knights Knights Under 16 Aymn Hamilton Spillane Opens Hayden Maher Knights Records Record Holder Record Time/Distance House Tom Lawton Under 16, 400 m 54.20 sec Doolan Jay Clarke Under 14, Shot Putt 13.40 m Spillane House Competition 1st Knights           1264 points 2nd Spillane         1030 points 3rd Shanahan      911 points 4th Doolan           900 points A big thank you to both staff and students who were there on the day.

200 Years in Catholic Education Mass
It was great to be able to gather with students from St Joseph’s College and St Patrick’s Primary School for this special celebration mass. The ceremony was presided over by Father Paul from St Patrick’s Parish. Congratulations must go to all the brilliant musicians who performed at Mass. The musicians were thoroughly prepared by the music staff from each school. Their performances added so much to the prayerful atmosphere of the mass. Father Paul spoke eloquently about the history of Catholic schools and the importance of those that have made a contribution throughout the years. A big thank you to all those who contributed to this wonderful celebration. Mr Beacroft Director of Mission and Identity   [foogallery id="32475"]   [embed]https://youtu.be/8xZULAW-N3k[/embed]

Year 12 Retreat
Year 12 Retreats at 'Winbourne' Mulgoa The retreats of 2021 will be remembered for the great enthusiasm and involvement of all students who attended. Year 12 were given the opportunity to participate in important spiritual experiences on their three day Retreat amid the peaceful and serene environment of the Mulgoa Retreat Centre. They didn’t waste this opportunity. Thanks to the staff from our College for their dedication to the Retreat program. Many staff from the College were instrumental in leading the boys through reflection, prayer, bushwalks and discussions about ‘Relationships and Consent', ‘What it is to be a Man in the 21st Century’, ‘Goal Setting’, ‘The Importance of Communication’, and their future directions. The celebration liturgy organised by the students was very special as it is the last Retreat for this cohort. Parents and staff should be very proud of the input and maturity shown by Year 12. Our guest speakers for the retreat were Ms Connor and Mrs Abbott-Atchison. They both spoke brilliantly and the boys left with lots to think about. Their talks were informative and inspiring and were well received by the boys. I am confident that these quality experiences will have a lasting effect upon our boys in preparing them for the future. I have no doubt that in years to come, many boys will remember these few days as being very significant in their lives. I thank and congratulate all Year 12 for the quality of their involvement. The staff at Mulgoa were lavish in their praise of these fine young men from St Edward's. They could not speak highly enough of their positive attitude, friendliness, cooperation, courtesy, and willingness to enter completely into the spirit of the Retreat. A typical comment about the boys was, “I can’t get over how well rounded they are, probably because they have been exposed to a variety of social justice experiences.” This particular group is a great credit to their families and the College. A special thank you to Mr McCauley the Year 12 Pastoral Leader, and Mrs Palmer-Brown our Leader of Learning Religious Education, for all the great work they did during these important days of review and reflection.
