Good Bye, Good Luck Year 12
Year 12 marked the end of their formal classes with three very special ceremonies this week. The first of these ceremonies was the Graduation Mass. This was the final time Year 12 students  gathered as a group with their parents and family members to celebrate the Eucharist at St Edward’s College. The theme for this mass was Young Men with Purpose, which has been the Year 12 Pastoral Theme for the year. On Thursday, the St Edward’s Old Boys Union provided a breakfast for the Year 12 students to officially welcome them into the Old Boys fraternity. A whole school academic assembly followed this breakfast, where we acknowledged students for their academic endeavours. First and second place in each course and various special awards in leadership and service were presented and the Dux of the 2019 year is announced. Congratulations to all the award winners for their sustained efforts throughout the HSC Year. We wish all of Year 12 the very best of luck in their final exams and look forward to seeing them at the HSC End of Year BBQ on Monday 17 December.

Music Department Performance Showcase
Last Monday and Tuesday were very exciting for the Music Department. On Monday we had our Year 11 and 12 Performance Evening with approximately 80 parents, teachers and friends in attendance. The boys were a touch nervous, but were well supported and exhibited some truly memorable performances which highlighted the skills and hard work which has gone into their pieces so far this year. Year 12, of course, also gained a valuable rehearsal in front of a live audience prior to their exam in a couple of weeks’ time. As the theatre was already decked out with instruments, amps, lights and smoke machines (courtesy of our amazing Year 11 and 12 Entertainment students), we decided it would be fun to put on a performance showcase the very next day in back to back concerts for our Year 7 and 8 students. Our Year 9 and 10 electives were simply amazing. The selected pieces ranged from Beethoven to Green Day and had our junior students clapping and singing along! Many thanks to Mrs Emmett (and the Entertainment students) and Mr Droz  for their assistance and support with both of these events.   [smallgallery fooid="21007"]   Years 9 and 10 Performances [embed][/embed]   Years 11 and 12 Evening Performances [embed][/embed]

Academic Awards Assembly
The College Community celebrated our students’ hard work and dedication to their studies at the Semester 1 Academic Awards Assemblies on Wednesday 24 July. At the start of the year, all students were encouraged to be the best they can be in their academic, cultural, religious, social justice and sporting endeavours. These assemblies provided the opportunity to acknowledge the many fine young men at St Edward’s who have set themselves learning goals for 2019 and worked hard in achieving these goals. Awards were presented in three categories: Consistent Effort, Academic Achievement and Outstanding Academic Achievement. Students receiving the Consistent Effort award were identified by their teachers as displaying an ongoing commitment to their studies. Students who achieved an Academic Achievement Award are generally performing very well in each of their courses and students receiving an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award are the students who have been nominated by their teachers as achieving the highest grades in most, if not all, of the subjects. Congratulations to all Award recipients.   2019-Semester-1-Academic-Assemblies   Year 7, 8 and 9 Assembly [smallgallery fooid="20303"]   Year 10, 11 and 12 Assembly [smallgallery fooid="20355"]

Visual Arts and Photography Prize from Gosford Private Hospital
Recently, Gosford Private Hospital approached all local high schools to create an idea for an artwork that would decorate a hallway within the grounds of the hospital. The idea of the decoration was to create a more welcoming and visually interesting corridor for patients travelling between wards or treatment rooms. St Edward’s boys created the idea of a panelled artwork consisting of five large photographic works around the following theme: The students of St Edward's see the Coast as having the best of three worlds: Proximity of beaches and waterways that are central to both the Coast as well as to most residents' lives A creative community that supports the development of artists such as the budding photographers who will be creating this artwork The ability to provide a sense of wellness to enhance the recovery of patients who may stay at the Hospital through exposure to the beautiful local landscape. Hospital patients can feel trapped inside and are unable to fully experience the Central Coast landscape, which could help their recovery. Over the top of the photographs of the landscape, the students will digitally draw white outlines of other features of the coast – such as a symbol of our connection to Edogawa in Japan (and the Gardens at the Regional Art Gallery) through Hokusai’s 'The Great Wave' and symbols of the wildlife surrounding us such as birds and fish. All of this imagery will overlap so viewers of the artwork can see each photograph separately or as a whole piece. St Edward’s students were chosen as the winners of the competition and have received $1000 towards the production of the artwork and its’ framing. Stay tuned for the finished artwork to be revealed by the chosen students and their submissions!

Athletics Carnival
A bright, warm sunny day greeted competitors for the College Athletics Carnival on Tuesday 11 June at Adcock Park. The warm weather had continued on from the long weekend and it certainly delivered for the carnival. Smiling faces from both staff and students graced the morning. Mr Herringe and the Year 12’s had the BBQ cranking, while ‘Snow Cone Gary’ was busy making coffee’s for staff and snow cones for the boys. The day began with the 1500 m races, into the 200 m races as we waited for all the staff and students to arrive at Adcock Park. On arrival, the carnival proper began with students moving from event to event in their age groups. Participation and having fun, was the order of the day and this was definitely adopted by the boys. The younger age groups participated with much enthusiasm and the senior boys backed this up with colour, costumes and a lot of fun. Along the way we collected some fantastic individual achievements. With the following records being broken: Record Holder Event House Time/Distance Jay Clarke Under 12, 100 m Red 13.30 sec Jay Clarke Under 12, 200 m Red 28.19 sec Callum Sutton Opens Discus Red 48.34 m Ethan Short Opens Javelin Blue 48.30 m At Friday’s assembly we also crowned the following Age Groups Champions: Under 12 Place Student House Points 1st Jay Clarke Red 55 2nd Keanu Wells Green 43 3rd Cameron Day Flynn McHale Blue White 15 15 Under 13 Place Student House Points 1st Lincoln Markulin Chris Rae Green Green 30 30 2nd Riley Scott Green 18 3rd Jimmy Stuart Blue 16 Under 14 Place Student House Points 1st Tyrone Dorrell Green 36 2nd Noah Nakagawa Red 29 3rd Cooper Notley White 23 Under 15 Place Student House Points 1st Jai Adrichem Toby Armstrong Hayden Maher Red Blue Green 20 20 20 2nd Parker Robinson Blue 15 3rd Tommo Peters Green 13 Under 16 Place Student House Points 1st Cameron Steer White 30 2nd Daniel Peters Green 21 3rd Tymana Henry Sam Norris Blue Blue 15 15 Opens Place Student House Points 1st Ethan Short Blue 46 2nd Luke Jacobs Blue 38 3rd James Rigas Blue 28 At the end of the day, as everyone returned to the velodrome to watch the 100 m finals and the house relays – the race for the Champion House was still close.

Easter Liturgy
The tradition of sharing our Holy Week celebration with St Joseph’s to remember the significance of Easter continued this year. Once again the ERC was packed with students, staff and parents from both Colleges. This was a solemn ceremony of prayer, song, and drama. The Passion of Christ is followed by witnessing the Stations of the Cross. Our Year 10 students were outstanding in presenting the final days of Jesus. The students from St Joseph’s performed a liturgical dance which was reverent and performed to the highest standard. The musicians on the day, under the guidance of the music staffs from both Colleges produced brilliant performances and created a great atmosphere in the ERC. Congratulations to all the students who prepared so thoroughly for this wonderful community event. For the first time a student delivered a personal testimony of their faith. Ashley Palupe’s spoken word piece was outstanding and had a profound impact on the gathered audience. A final thank you to all who contributed to the most important liturgical event on the Christian calendar especially Mrs Green who did such a wonderful job coordinating the liturgy.

Pushing the Limits at Year 9 Camp
On Wednesday we left around 9.00 to travel to a new camp:  Nepean Adventure Centre at Douglas Park. The boys were extremely excited and praying for fine weather which came to fruition and all activities went ahead.  Some of activities included the giant swing, kayaking down the Nepean River, zorb balls and challenge nights in the evenings. The students were exceptional in their behaviour and attitude and it was a pleasure to spend the three days watching them respond so well to the challenges they faced both individually and as a team.  I would like to thank the teachers who assisted me on camp giving up time with their families to participate in helping these boys have such a positive experience.

Fun and Friendship at Year 7 Camp
The Year 7 Camp was filled with lots of high-flying fun and adventure. The focus of the camp was for everyone to belong and encourage each other, and this was on display throughout our time away. Boys revelled in the challenges of abseiling, flying fox, raft building, archery, bushwalking and even got the chance to try fencing. Fears were conquered and friendships were formed, so all-in-all it was a successful camp. Thank you to the students for their behaviour and to the teachers for their time and service.

Great Aussie Bush Camp, Tea Gardens A wet but a defining experience for the Year 8 boys, it was evident within this group that a number of students missed the comforts of home, however, credit to them for seeing the three days through and I believe growing in the process. Food was abundant and activities varied, there were high ropes, orienteering, the crate climb, canoeing, abseiling, kayaking, Lost Island and raft building for the boys to hone their skills on. A great three days where Year 8 had the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone.   [smallgallery fooid="18355"]

A Day in the Life of St Edward’s College
‘We had the best day’, was how many of the 240 Year 6 students from 27 primary schools from across the coast responded after spending the day at the College last week. Science experiments, playing Kahoot in the Learning Centre, slam dunking in PE, painting a bookmark in art, jamming with Year 10 boys in music and finally making a wooden box in woodwork were the learning experiences that the boys were involved in. Many had such a good time that they bought their parents back on Saturday to show them the excellent facilities that St Edward's College offers.

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"]     BBSSSA Swimming Event List 2019
