Primary Welcome Picnic

The Kinnoull Oval was the scene of much activity at the Primary Welcome Picnic held on Thursday 21 February. The atmosphere was great – very social amongst the parents and very active amongst the students and their siblings. Thanks to Lou Harris and Michelle Peterson, our Primary YLRs, for their hard work in encouraging a great turn out and organising some great games for the students and their siblings to play. Thanks also to Mr Tim Hogan and the Applied Learning students who once again supplied a great BBQ service. What a great start to the year for our Primary classes.

Year 9 Holy Eucharist Welcome Mass and BBQ

On Sunday 24 February Year 9 students and their families joined in the celebration of mass with the Holy Eucharist congregation. This was followed by a tour of the new Campus and a BBQ hosted by the Parent Network. Thanks to Mr David Alexander for taking on the idea of a great introduction to the new campus and making it such a successful event.

Our Year 9 YLRS, Louise MacNamara and Linda Curnow (supported by Sharon Herdman), did an amazing job organising the catering, recruiting and coordinating numerous volunteers and transforming the back of the Holy Eucharist basketball court into a shady BBQ oasis.  Thanks also to Angela Carlino and Patricia D’Arcy for helping with the logistics in preparation for this event.

The Parent Network would like to acknowledge the support of Bunnings Chadstone, who donated a BBQ, gas bottle and cooking equipment to the Holy Eucharist Campus. The students are very excited at the prospect of being able to run their own ‘sausage sizzles’ at the new Campus. Thanks also to Bakers Delight Carnegie and Woolworths Carnegie North for donations of supplies towards the BBQ.
