We are fast approaching the end of the Church’s liturgical year and the beginning of Advent. This time is a gift, for in the busyness of the winding up of the school year and the preparations for Christmas and holidays, we are called to find time for inner silence where we can reflect on our lives and how we can be more like Christ. Advent gives us four weeks to reconsider the priorities in our lives and to choose again to be people of light and peace and love in the world.
Our Annual Awards Ceremony held last week in the Stadium was a wonderful celebration of excellence across all aspects of College life. My sincere thanks to all who helped bring the ceremony together, and to those wonderful students whose efforts were recognized in a very public way. The complete list of students receiving awards across the various categories of achievement can be viewed here.

This was once again held at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Friday November 23, and it was such a joy to share in this wonderful occasion with our graduates and their families, many of whom have now educated their last child at the College. The College Staff are so very proud of our Year 12s as they now await their final subject and ATAR scores. As part of the dinner, a number of awards are presented, including the subject ‘Dux’ awards, the Long Tan Award and the Bosco Campus Award. Congratulations to all recipents.

Salesian College Sunbury is a large community of students, staff and parents, both past and present. Please keep the following in your prayers:
An Advent Prayer
Master of both the light and the darkness,
we wait in hope.
We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces
to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things
look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways
long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.
We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, ‘Come Lord Jesus!’
