Pastoral Care and Organisation

Mission Action Day held on Friday 27 March was a great success. The College is very grateful to boys and their families for the effort made in securing sponsorship for the event. We had just over $100,000 in pledges prior to the activity.

Responsibility now rests with each student to ensure they are diligent in collecting the pledged amount from each of their sponsors and returning the money promptly to the College.

To assist in concluding this fundraising activity we ask that all money is returned to the Homeroom Teacher by Wednesday 29 April.

Thank you for your support.

Founders Day Celebrations

Founders Day this year will be held on the feast day of St. John Baptist de La Salle on Friday 15 May.

No classes will be held on this day and instead there will be a whole school Mass and celebration commencing at 9.15am in the gym. This will be followed by a morning of fun, community building activities involving all students and staff to be held at Kinnoull.

The College Student Leadership Team have been working on a range of activities that will appeal to all year levels. Some of these activities will have a small cost attached to them.

The money raised will partly cover costs for the day as well as create additional funds to supplement Mission Action Day fundraising money. All Mission Action Day money is distributed to the La Sallian Foundation to support charitable works in De La Salle schools in India, Philippines and PNG.

This is a great opportunity to come together as a community in the knowledge that the fun had will also assist those less fortunate. More information about Founders Day will be distributed closer to the event.

ANZAC Ceremony

Friday 24 April will see the College stop activity in Period 5 to attend a ceremony in the Gym to commemorate ANZAC Day.

There will be a number of special guests including community leaders, De La Salle Brothers and representatives of the Defence Forces attending the ceremony.

In this, the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Campaign, this ceremony will have special meaning and create an environment of prayer and reflection on those men and women who have served their community as members of our Defence Force.

Did you know…?

Each weekend on Sunday evenings a group of senior students supported by staff are rostered to help out on the St Vincent de Paul Soup Van in Collingwood.

The College congratulates our College Leaders for their generosity in being involved in this community service activity, as well as staff members Mr Graeme Lawler, Ms Jo Dickson and Ms Haylene Peipert for supporting the boys.
