Year 9 News – 25 April 2024


Welcome to Term 2. Students have returned full of chatter and enthusiasm to reconnect with friends. We finished Term 1 with a successful Athletics Carnival and Caritas Ks Walk for Water awareness activity. Congratulations to 9B3 and 9C3 on their excellent fundraising efforts.

At our first assembly for this term, held on Thursday 18 April, we were fortunate to have Mr Frank Dullard, the Executive Deputy Principal Staff & Administration, address the cohort. He briefly discussed his role at the College, then emphasised the importance of students taking up the opportunities on offer and the positive benefits of academic, co-curricular and sporting achievements. Mr Dullard challenged students to be preparing for the transition to St Mary’s for Year 10.
