Mask Reminder

As per the NSW Public Health Order, all staff and students are required to wear a mask whilst indoors at the College. This includes to and from school on public transport. 

The responsibility for providing students with a mask lies with parents. Unfortunately, due to the College Nurse being inundated with requests from students who fail to bring a mask to school, masks are no longer available from the Health Centre, but instead, can be purchased for $1 from the canteen.

This has already seen a significant drop in masks needing to be distributed by the College, from an average of 100 per day, to now less than 10. 

Year 12 (2021) Graduation and Valedictory Dinner

Last Thursday evening, it was wonderful to finally celebrate the Year 12 Graduation and Valedictory Dinner at the Australian Turf Club at Randwick, with over 500 guests.

The event was streamed for students who have already taken the next steps in their life’s journey, a number of them joining us from around Australia and overseas. 

Highlights of the night included the liturgy presented by Ms Sue Walsh, and memorable speeches by the College Principal, Mr Graham Leddie, and 2021 College Captain, Peter Stamatelatos. The night concluded with the presentation of the high ATAR awards, Major Award Winners, then announcing the Dux of 2021, Leon Palacio.

Special thanks to Ms Suzi Sucur for her great work organising the event, Heads of House for their support, and Mr Bishoy Wasef and Mr Angus McPherson for filming and streaming the event.
