On Wednesday, 9 August, the College is celebrated McAuley Day. McAuley Day is dedicated to honouring the remarkable legacy of Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Sisters of Mercy.
Our festivities commenced with a whole-school assembly, where the McAuley student leaders took the stage with an entertaining Mercy Quiz.
During this assembly, Mrs Branson and Principal Mr Vince Bellini had the privilege of awarding College Colours to a select group of Year 12 students. These individuals were recognised for their academic achievements and their dedication to embodying our College's Faith values. Among them, Conlan Bailey was presented with College Honours, a distinction well-deserved for his engagement in every aspect of College life.
Sports Captains Noah Mills and Calista Harvey looked back at a successful Country Week. They presented Coaches and Players Awards to students who displayed exceptional skills during the tournament as well as dedication, selflessness, and a positive attitude. Congratulations to all recipients of these awards.
Charlie McDonald provided a comprehensive Ministry report, highlighting the impactful initiatives undertaken. He spoke about the Breakfast Club, the St. Vinnies Can appeal, and the upcoming College Feast Day. Through these initiatives, our College community continues to exemplify the spirit of service and compassion.
The McAuley celebrations continued at lunchtime with games, dancing and special treats for our McAuley students. A big thank you to McAuley House!
