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 Raphael the Parish Priest of Wyoming. Congratulations must go to all our brilliant musicians who performed at Mass. Our musicians were thoroughly prepared by Mr Toole, Mrs Emmett and Mr Droz. Their performances added so much to the prayerful atmosphere of the mass. Father Raphael 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. Thanks to all the parents and friends of the College who were able to attend on the day.

College Swimming Carnival 2019
Friday 8 February saw the running of the 66th St Edward’s College Swimming Carnival at the Peninsula Leisure Centre Woy Woy. A bright, sunny day greeted our eager swimmers for what turned out to be a fantastic event. The senior boys embraced the colour and fanfare of the carnival, while the younger boys were enthusiastically involved in supporting their house colour. While the highlight of the day was watching the many talented swimmers we have at the College, it was also an opportunity to see the Year 12 boys embrace their last swimming carnival with colour, costumes and a variety of floatation devices crammed into their one heat approach to each event. Another year, another record for both Daniel McLoughlin (Doolan) and Jacob Curcio (Shanahan). Daniel set a new record in the Intermediate 200 m Freestyle of 2:04:53, funnily enough breaking Jacob’s previous mark from 2018. In the next race, it was Jacob’s turn to set a new record in the Senior 200 m Freestyle of 2:04:40. Later in the day Daniel also set a record in the Under 15’s, 50 m Backstroke of 30:25 seconds. The day also saw us crown our 2019 Age Champions: Age Group Age Champion House Under 12 Nate Vaughan Shanahan (Blue) Under 13 Kale Pauta Doolan (White) Under 14 Jayden Redfern Doolan (White) Under 15 Daniel McLoughlin Doolan (White) Under 16 Riley Marotta Knights (Green) Opens Jacob Curcio Shanahan (Blue)   Overall Doolan (White) House won the day on 1034 points, improving on their second placing last year. Shanahan (Blue) came in second on 972, followed by Spillane (Red) on 851 and Knights (Green) on 626. Many thanks to our fantastic staff for their tireless efforts on the day and their support in ensuring the carnival ran smoothly, thank you also to the many helpers who assisted with the set-up and pack-up of the carnival. Finally, I must congratulate all the students in attendance on their wonderful behaviour at the carnival. It was fantastic to speak to both the pool and café staff at the end of the day and have each of them comment on the pleasant and respectful behaviour of our boys. Well done to everyone on a great start to the sporting year.   [smallgallery fooid="16720"]

This is a wonderful opportunity to host a French student and then go to France to experience life and school in France. It would only cost you your airfare, insurance and spending money. You do not need to be studying elective French. You also earn Waterford hours. Available for all students from Year 9 to Year 12. Please contact Mrs Papeix as soon as possible for more information.

NAPLAN Exceptional Growth Awards
NAPLAN, provides the school with value information about each individual student. NAPLAN outcomes also inform teachers on how to best structure lessons for the needs of each student. The unique advantage that NAPLAN has over other assessments is the ability to track a student over many years and from one school to another. It is with this in mind that we can analyse the data and see real growth for individual students. ACARA, the national body who prepares the examinations and report the results to families and schools, also provide data on growth for each student, and at the Exceptional Growth Assembly, we celebrated those students who achieved exceptional growth in NAPLAN this year.

Clean4Shore
'There's forty bottles just here!' That was the call from St Edward's College students as they nervously ventured into the thick mangroves in Erina Creek. From the barge, the area looked clean in Erina Creek, but a chance look uncovered masses of polystyrene, plastic bottles, plastic pieces and cans, 15 m  inside the mangroves. The students 'crawled' on hands and knees, to reach the litter, and it just kept coming. Only 60 m was cleaned in the high tidal water, yet 25 very full bags came out of this small section of mangroves. Many heavier items (bottles) remained unseen under the water. Just further upstream, behind the baseball field, a known dump site again produced plenty of litter, plus a car tyre and galvanised iron. Earlier the boys cleaned the mangroves adjacent to their main oval, only a bag removed here, mostly from the open drains running into Caroline Bay either side of the school. Erina Bay was also checked, a 'BBQ Boat' was removed by Simon from the mangroves, Maritime was contacted and met our group on our return trip. Erina Bay had small amounts of litter, mainly on the tidal marks, plenty of food wrapping and plastic pieces. Thirty very full bags, plus the steel, was loaded onto the Clean4shore trailer and delivered to the tip. Statistics on the sampled bags revealed a total of 650 plastic bottles, 1180 pieces of plastic, 530 pieces of polystyrene and 740 pieces of food wrapping. Well done boys and thank you to Jono from Clean4Shore.   [smallgallery fooid="15467"]

Year 10 Camp
The Year 10 camp was an amazing experience for the boys who challenged themselves in activities that were outside their comfort zone. The weather was incredible for the whole week, with sunshine and mostly blue skies. It was still cold in the morning and night, especially in the carpark at Charlottes Pass before the hike. The landscape for the hike was a colourful mix of snow, blue lakes and alpine flora. The hike was a challenging 16 km where the boys where driven to Charlottes Pass and then walked to Guthega. The hike included a river crossing requiring them to take off their shoes and socks. The boys also abseiled, rode (and crashed) mountain bikes, camped in tents, camped under tarps and swam in Jindabyne Lake whist raft building. Most importantly though, they tackled everything that was thrown at them with good humour and tenacity. The boys' behaviour was fantastic, and the staff and instructors were full of praise for the way they approached the camp. I believe the challenges of camp show a person’s true character and if this holds true, this group are going to be amazing young men in Years 11-12. Thanks boys for a great week.

Year 9 Camp
The Great Aussie Bush Camp kept our Year 9 students entertained and quite busy. The boys experienced an overnight bivouac which involved a hike to the site and a canoe trip on Myall Lakes back to camp. On site the students experienced the Giant Swing, Team Challenge, Leap of Faith and the Vertical Challenge. Participation on the part of the boys was excellent, they supported and encouraged each other and their behaviour was exemplary. They worked as a team, they challenged each other and themselves. They were well fed and the experience helped take many of the students out of their comfort zone. I would very much like to thank the staff who accompanied and supported me and your sons on camp. Their time and effort is greatly appreciated. Mr Speziale Year 9 Coordinator [smallgallery fooid="14313"]

Reading Hour
On Thursday 20 September, the Shanahan Learning Centre hosted ‘Reading Hour’ for students and staff. Everyone was encouraged to bring their classes to the library (or participate in their own classes) and read for pleasure for a full lesson. The library staff also organized competitions such as book in a jar, lucky door prizes and staff’s favourite book guessing competition. A huge thank you to all the students and staff who took part. With over 200 books checked out, it’s clear we have some keen readers in the school. A big congratulations to Ms Connor and Mr Sullivan who won the teachers lucky door prizes – ironically Mr Sullivan won the same book he was reading. Also, a massive thank you to Ms Hatfield-Smith who took her Year 12 Advanced English class to read to other students. Provided are a few quick facts that reinforce why reading is so important for our students: Reading reduces stress by 68%, relieving stress more quickly than listening to music, going for a walk or having a cup of tea Children who know adults who read for pleasure take it for granted that reading is valuable The more leisure books people read, the more literate they become and the more prosperous and equitable the society they inhabit Reading a gripping novel causes positive biological changes in the brain that can last for days Increasing literacy and numeracy skills has a positive and significant effect on gaining employment [smallgallery fooid="14255"]

Students were able to chat with Lucy about their concepts and art making practice, as well as their timber projects and methods of creation. It was wonderful to hear their conversations around prominent topics that effect the youth of today and how those topics have been portrayed in their artworks.
