Toby Martin
It was with great sadness that the College received news of Year 9 student, Toby Martin, who passed away peacefully on  2 July after losing his battle with leukemia, having being diagnosed just under two years ago. Toby was a wonderful young man who loved being an 'Eddie’s Boy'. He was an inspiration to all those who he came in contact with and his legacy will long be remembered at St Edward’s College. Shortly after his passing, Toby’s parents, Ros and Chris, were interviewed by A Current Affair. We encourage you to take the time to watch the short video clip below. A Current Affair   Toby had a strong sense of community and social justice. Despite his own battle with leukemia, he had a dream to help others and the raise money for Central Coast Kids in Need (CCKIN). To date, the Go Fund Me page has raised close to $32 000 and will be donated to CCKIN to support other ‘kids on the coast’ with life threatening illnesses. The link to Toby’s Gift Go Fund Me page is https://gf.me/u/ydytdm.

Cead Conway
Congratulations to Cead Conway in Mrs McDonald's Year 7 class, for his outstanding work in English. Year 7 boys have been working on their writing through a unit called ‘Epic Quests’. Cead has developed a series of maps based on Ireland and his writing and visuals which set the scene for the larger body of work he will submit in Week 10 shows amazing promise. Well done, Cead. Cead's writing: The Gaelic Gladiator was from a long reign of powerful people in his land. His forefathers carried the same name and folklore is riddled with tales about them. The land of Meanbh-Chuileag and their name had a connection that gaped back an eternity. He was known throughout the lands and Europe as the Gaelic Gladiator, a fiery redheaded, strong, tall man and the very earth shook beneath his feet. His name was Cead Mile Conway, in Gaelic that meant one hundred thousand mountains. He was born in Ireland, a green, mysterious and magical land, filled with the haunting sounds of the ancestors who had walked these fields before him. The mountains and valleys had whispering winds, his town was stretched upon the coastline of south west County Clare. The land of Meanbh-Chuileag was set high on a foreboding cliff, which overlooked the Cliffs of Moher. It was a cold dark land but also filled with much beauty. It is from within these very lands that our hero will emerge.

Small Moment Writing
Congratulations to Tyrone Dorrell, Sam McCudden, Daniel Lavery and James Vassallo on your excellent Small Moment Writing pieces completed at the recent year 7 Immersion Day.  Outstanding work boys. Tyrone Dorrell Everyone turned their eyes onto us. Dylan was about to sit on our throne which took about half an hour to make. With a nervous glance he slowly sat, we knew what was about to happen. My dreams of it staying Grand crumbled just like the throne. The feeling of disappointment imbedded into my chest because I didn’t think we were going to go out like this. A sudden sense of pride swooped through me  because what we made did actually look like a throne; Even though it didn’t act like one. If I had to take one thing from that moment I would take even though we did fail, we did achieve more than we could have  hope for because we worked together to do the best we could. Daniel Lavery We scramble to put our cardboard chair together whilst Mrs. Murdoch is mid-way through her sentence of saying "5 minutes left". My group is working to get those chocolates that were promised to the winners. "3 minutes left", we panic and do our best to finish the chair on time. Every chair has failed so far on the sitting test and then comes our opportunity to win the challenge, but as soon as I sat on the chair, I noticed something. One of the support legs had folded and before I could blink the chair crumbled and our chance of winning the chocolates were crushed. Even though our chances were crushed, I learnt how important teamwork is when trying to achieve goals. Sam McCudden "TIME!" called the teacher. The pressure to get the throne finished was instantly lifted by that one word… but only for a few seconds as I realized it still had to be judged. When the judges came to our throne we realized it was too tall. I knew our design was strong, but I didn’t know if it was strong enough for Tom, the heaviest person in our group, who was the only one tall enough to sit on our throne. Slowly Tom put his weight on to the throne. I felt a sigh of release as the throne held Toms weight but not for long as right before my eyes, crumpled the throne and our chances of winning. The judges moved on without saying a word. James Vassallo Everyone turned their eyes onto us. Dylan was about to sit on our throne which took about half an hour to make. With a nervous glance he slowly sat, we knew what was about to happen. My dreams of it staying Grand crumbled just like the throne. The feeling of disappointment imbedded into my chest because I didn’t think we were going to go out like this. A sudden sense of pride swooped through me  because what we made did actually look like a throne; Even though it didn’t act like one. If I had to take one thing from that moment I would take even though we did fail, we did achieve more than we could have  hope for because we worked together to do the best we could.
