House Welcome and Liturgies

De La Salle College formally invites families to their House Welcome, Information and Liturgy evenings.St Austin’s House — 27 February St Edwin’s House — 6 March St Leo’s House — 13 March

St Mark’s House — 20 March 2018

Each event is held from 7.30pm in the St Miguel Theatre, Kinnoull Campus.

The formal part of the evening will include a short Liturgy involving the House student leaders followed by some important information relating to your son’s House and the College Wellbeing Programs. At the conclusion of the 45‐minute presentation, light refreshments will be provided in the Peppercorn Café. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet with your son’s House Mentor as well as other parents from his Mentor group. For catering and administration purposes, could I ask that families RSVP to your son’s House Coordinator a week prior to their House event. The House Mentors and Student House Leaders are looking forward to seeing you present on the night.

Director of Students 10–12

Science Competition for House Points

To welcome students to the wonderful world of microscopes, the Science team are holding a Slide Competition. Year 8 students who have produced a good homemade slide can submit it to your Science Teacher or the Laboratory Technician before the last week of Term 1 for a chance to win bonus house points! Your slide can be of any biological cell. Last year’s winner by Max Kovacevic of St Leo’s House, shown below, is of a fly’s wing. The best slide viewed under the microscope will be awarded ten house points and be displayed near the Tiverton Science News Wall in the Year 8 corridor and in the Duce. Points will also be awarded for the second and third best slides. Winners will be announced at the beginning of Term 2. Have fun and good luck!
