From the Deputy Head of College, Patrick Brennan
God we ask that our students feel your closeness during the HSC exam period. Give them calm hearts and quiet confidence in the knowledge that you hold them in the palm of your hand. Bless them with keen understanding and retentive memory. Give them the ability to grasp things correctly, be exact in their explanations and an ability to express themselves clearly. Point out clearly the beginning, direct their progress and help them in the completion of each of their responses. Holy Spirit send them your gifts of wisdom and knowledge.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
As a community we keep our Year 12 students warmly in our thoughts and prayers as they are now in to their first week of the HSC. Their first Exam was English held on Monday. Our prayer and wish is for all of their efforts to be richly rewarded in producing their best over the next four weeks.
Summer Uniform Senior School
The senior school summer uniform consists of a regulation blue short sleeve shirt with crest or a non-crested shirt with a tie. During summer boys are required to wear a tie at assemblies and at all formal gatherings. The College blue trousers are worn at the waist supported by a belt. Footwear must be black leather lace-up shoes that take a shine.
I was very pleased in addressing our young men at last week’s leadership assembly, and then being in the classroom and around the playground, to notice that our boys are in great spirit with a polished appearance in their summer uniform. We continue to encourage them in this regard as they have now begun in earnest and vigour to embrace all the College has to offer them.
I would like to thank parents and boys for a smooth start to Term 4. Parents should be assured that our high expectations will be in place until the final day of term, Wednesday 6 December.
