Year 12 Graduation
It was with great delight that we were able to celebrate graduation in person with everyone present – the first time since 2019. Students have celebrated their time at the College with joy, fun and passion, and we congratulate them on the level of respect they have shown each other, the College, their families, and most importantly themselves. The close of their formal relationship with the College has been a positive one, which we hope has blessed them with great memories for many years to come.
We wish the Year 12 students sitting VCCA exams from next Wednesday all the very best. Many students have already undertaken their performance solo exams and oral language exams. A nervous time for all, but from my experience our students have been very well prepared, through their own endeavours, ably supported and encouraged by their teachers.
Thank you to the parents who nominated to be a part of the Consultation Workshops. Interest was limited so we shared the consultation questions with interested families directly and asked for their feedback. We understand the ‘busyness’ of family life at the moment, and I thank the families who have provided constructive feedback.
Feedback has also just come in this week through the MACSSIS Surveys (students, staff and families) and through the Year 12 Exit Surveys (students and families). Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide feedback. We will review the data for patterns and trends which supports us to reflect on our communication, processes and procedures at the College.
‘Heart of Columba’ Opening
The opening of our heritage centre ‘Heart of Columba’ was a wonderful event, coinciding with the reunion for all the students finishing the College in a year ending in “2”. It was a privilege to listen to the stories of women over decades who hold the College in a very special place in their hearts. The ‘Heart of Columba’ stands as a testament to the work of the Sisters of Charity, and their colleagues over time, who recognised the power of education to transform the world.
