Last week, the College bade ‘farewell’ to the Graduates of 2019 over several days, culminating in a joyous celebration of the Eucharist on Tuesday evening. I wish to commend the 12s on the way they concluded their formal classes, respectful of others and of their College. At our final whole school assembly for the year, I spoke of the importance of doing the ‘little things well’ in order to achieve true success in life and of recognising the contribution that everyone in their ‘team’ has made to their education – parents, staff and peers alike. You can read the entire speech here.
This Friday is “World Teachers Day”. It is no exaggeration to say that student success at school depends largely on the dedication and commitment of the staff who work in them. I would like to extend my thanks to all the staff at Salesian College Sunbury for their commitment to the wellbeing, growth and development of each student in their care and for their hard work to ensure that, every student has every opportunity to flourish.
The Term 3 Student of the Term Awards were presented at our Whole School Assembly on Friday. I wish to publically congratulate each of the following students for their achievements:
At the conclusion of our Year 12 Farewell assembly last week, we thanked our outgoing Captains, Joshua De Jonge and Mikaela Frantz, for their wonderful leadership throughout the year. Their successors will certainly have big shoes to fill, and we were thrilled to announce that our College Captains for 2020 will be Rick Daicos and Nicole Brideson. They will be well-supported by a large Student Leadership Executive, the details of which can be seen here. Congratulations to our new leaders and to everyone who ‘put their hand up’ to contribute to their school in such a public way.
Salesian College Sunbury is a large community of students, staff and parents, both past and present. Please keep the following in your prayers:
