The Expo will be held on the evening of Monday 24 June for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. Learning Areas will showcase the courses available for students in Year 11, 2020 and many university, TAFE and training providers will also be available on the evening. More information will be shared with the students in Term 2.
More details to follow.
All students are required to arrive at the College at 7.20am on Thursday and assemble in the Auditorium (drop off in Auditorium car park, not the Sports Complex). The team will be transported to the venue by bus. Students will return to the College for a 3.00pm dismissal.
All team members must be in full college sports uniform and will be provided with a new college singlet to compete in.
Students should bring their own lunch, however there will also be Food Trucks onsite. It is very important that your child has their own water bottle and stays hydrated throughout the day.
The ACC Cross Country Carnival is a fantastic spectator event and all parents are welcome to attend. The first race is at 9.30am. Girls run 3000m and Boys 4000m.
Students in Years 7-12 will compete in the annual Surfing Competition.
Family and friends are invited to attend the Years 3-6 Assembly on Friday 24 May. Students will be recognised and receive Merit Certificates for their Academic achievements.
Family and friends are invited to attend the PP-Y2 Assembly on Friday 17 May. Students will receive Merit Certificates for their Academic achievements and the students from Year 2 Green will perform their item.
The Stewards of Creation Reflection Day will assist each of our students to grow in appreciation for the gift of Creation but to be challenged by the concept that humanity is the pinnacle of creation and we should be humbled by this mystery. The fact that we are held in such high regard by God comes with the responsibility to not only serve creation as good stewards but all of humanity too.
Our Reflection Days will be led by 24:7 School Ministry who are faith filled and qualified youth ministers, operating vibrant and engaging youth ministry in parishes across the archdiocese of Perth under the banner of 24:7 Youth Ministry.
Masquerade was a moving, heart-warming play so magnificently performed by our students. Congratulations to our Director, Bethwyn Legg, cast and crew for their efforts over the last six months. The feedback from the community has been effusive particularly from our Catholic primary schools who attended a matinee performance. Thanks to the parents and friends who supported the production from making costumes to serving drinks and nibbles at intermission. The sum of our community is exemplified by the success of this play.
One of the key strengths of being a Marist School is our membership of Marist Schools Australia, which comprises 53 schools across Australia. This week our Open Girls and Boys Basketball teams travelled to Bendigo Victoria for the Annual Marist Basketball Carnival. Our basketballers performed admirably on and off the court. Their attitude and commitment represented the very best of what our Vision for Learning, Shine through Discovery – Let your light shine (Mathew 5:16) seeks to achieve. This event, however, is marked not only by competitive basketball but by family spirit which defines our group of schools. For many of our students this carnival is a glimpse into the window of the Marist world that shows that we are part of something greater. The aspirations and hopes that come with a Marist education is the same for all students world over. At the heart though is how we come together, form relationships and seek to make a difference. This week exemplified this intent and for our basketballers an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
Archbishop Timothy Costelloe’s Easter message highlights the gift that are the words Peace be with you! The Lord does say, after all, that the peace he offers is not like the peace the world promises – it is something deeper, and truer, and profoundly life-giving. As I watched the Marian Easter Liturgy I reflected on the joy and happiness of our students in acting out the Easter story. Their joy brought me a great sense of peace to a time that has been challenging in the last few weeks.
As we move towards Easter I pray that our community seeks the peace that can be found through a commitment to faith and a relationship with Jesus Christ. I implore you to take the time with your children to attend your local parish for one or more of the Easter week liturgies. I hope you get the opportunity to feel the peace and hope I did at our Marian liturgy.
Wishing you all a peaceful and joy filled holiday.
