Scripture Quote

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:12,13

“Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing— grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God.    Joel 2:12-14

Last year our school roll reached its maximum, as set by the Ministry of Education. Due to the full roll and needing to put a wait list in place, it is important to let family and friends who are looking at sending their son to Liston next year (2018), know that they need to get their enrolment application into the school early.  Enrolment interviews take place from Term 2.

Inaugural Mass
Many thanks to those who attended the Inaugural Mass on Monday 23 February. Thank you to Fr Kevin Murphy for celebrating mass and thanks to the students for their participation.

Open Evening
We have our Open Evening coming up on Wednesday 29 March, from 7pm until 9pm. Please let family and friends who are interested in sending their sons to Liston know about this evening.  Please note: School closes at 12.10pm on the Wednesday, in preparation for the Open Evening. Buses run at the normal time.

Old Boys' Society 
The Liston College Old Boys' Society meet regularly and are planning several events during the year.  The first event is a Golf Day. This will be held at Redwood Park Golf Course on Friday 31 March. Tee off is at 1:00pm. Further details are in this newsletter.

2017 Gala
The PTFA have started planning for the annual school Gala which is to be held on Saturday, 1 April 2017.  All proceeds raised from the Gala go back to the College for the benefit of all. If you know of a business, or have a business that would like to donate items, vouchers for services or who would like to sponsor a stall, please contact Julia Stuart : 09 833 3012.

God Bless you and your families.
