Stepping Outside Their Comfort Zone at Year 10 Camp
Jindabyne was the setting for our camp and it was certainly one that we won’t forget any time soon. The weather was extreme: snow, wind, rain, sun and everything in between! Some of our students walked up one of the highest peaks in Australia with minimal visibility - due to the blizzard-like conditions - and after conquering this 15 km hike they were buzzing with energy. Their adversity was on show and even the staff had to overcome numerous obstacles, with two members ending up in Canberra Hospital due to injuries (they survived). The cycling activity was another test of character as it combined a skills component mixed with long rides through the mountains. Abseiling, raft building, fire building, cooking and myriad other activities provided each boy with opportunities to grow and develop the resilience that comes from an experience such as this.   [smallgallery fooid="41127"]   [smallgallery fooid="41459"]

Alumni Event
On Friday, we hosted a fabulous Alumni Event for our Year 12 (2023) students. Students rotated between three Alumni to hear about their changing definition of success and squiggly pathways. A special thank you to our Old Boys - Phil Dibben, Danny May, Ben McInnes, Ben Cutrupi, Peter Sullivan, Paul Nicholas, Alexander Blanch, Darren Cocks and John Fisher. With industry areas covered such as Pharmacy, IT, Insurance, Trade, Education, Import/Exporting, Police, Nursing and Business, our students were very fortunate indeed. This event would not have been initiated without funding from Regional School Alumni Event Program Proudly supported by NSW Government. Special thanks to Jillian Williams RIEP Senior Project Officer. I look forward to the Alumni school program continuing in 2023. [foogallery id="40877"]

Fun and Friendship at the Year 7 Camp
Over three adventurous days, Year 7 embarked on their first St Edward’s College School Camp. On Wednesday 2 November, students travelled to Crosslands Reserve in Hornsby Heights where they crossed Berowra Creek on the barge ready for a busy three days of outdoor activities.  The boys stepped out of their comfort zone and faced their fears by abseiling natural rock walls, traversing across river bridges and battling the high ropes.  Students explored the waterways on canoes and stand-up paddle boards and tried their hand at raft building!  We were extremely proud of how well the boys banded together to share their skills and support each other through each task. The nights were spent in cabins and tents where the boys gained experienced erecting and taking down their tent, organising their things and tidying up after each night.  After each busy day, half the boys relaxed by the campfire, while the other half enjoyed a movie or some games as a group. We are extremely proud of the resilience and sportsmanship displayed by the boys, as well as the care and support they showed each other during moments of vulnerability.  We hope the boys enjoyed their time at camp and have some memories that will last a life time.   [smallgallery fooid="40559"]

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.
