Special Character Review
Feedback from the Special Character Review Team was very positive.  A draft report will be with us in about three weeks.  By the end  of the term I will be able to give a summary of the final report. Thank you to the parents who assisted and met with the review team.

Liston Day
It was great to see so many parents and friends of the school at the Mass. The feedback on the way the boys conducted themselves in the Cathedral was again very positive.

After the Mass the boys enjoyed the concert. A highlight was the performance by our visiting Colombian students.

Mother and Son High Tea
A successful inaugural Mother & Son High Tea was held on 13 May. The gym was transformed for the over 140 who attended. Speakers on the day included students Samuel Devereaux, Brandon Thomson, Israel Alfante and Andre Brooking.  What they shared about their mothers was both touching and heartfelt.  Mr Peter Cowie (teacher) and Mr Stuart Wards (sponsor) also shared stories about their relationships with their mothers during their younger years and now. We look forward to this event becoming a tradition of the College. Special thanks must go to Joshua and Benjamin Duting for their fabulous music and singing.

Staff Only Day
Please note that Tuesday 6 June is a Staff Only Day.  The College will not be open for students on that day. 

God Bless you and your families.
