Last Thursday was a wonderful opportunity to take a moment and celebrate our recent journey when we officially opened the Senior School precinct. The idea of celebration is key to human life and particularly balance in our life. By our nature we can often just put our heads down and just work and work and work. The need for celebration is intrinsically important for individuals and communities.

Stephen Hawking’s legacy is for all ages. Stephen Hawking is gone, and the world is all the poorer. Stephen Hawking, a person who could speak with authority to the highest level of astrophysics, yet capture the imagination of generations of children worldwide.
International Women’s Day was celebrated by the College last Thursday acknowledging the contribution of individual women in shaping our communities. As we have seen in the media, 2018 has already proven itself to be a pivotal year for highlighting the structural inequalities that have allowed discrimination to be perpetuated in society.

Last night marked a special milestone in the history of the College with the Blessing and Opening of the Senior School Precinct. It was a beautiful celebration for our community with a wonderful mix of the formal and informal. The setting in the roundabout in front of the Senior School was impressive with the stunning colour of Tipperary and the grandness of Waterford. We were fortunate to have a number of special guest speakers including the Honourable Grace Grace MP Minister for Education and Minister for Industrial Relations, Dr Lee-Anne Perry AM Executive Director, Queensland Catholic Education Commission, Kathleen Freeman, EREA Council Member as well as Michael Senior, Father John Gillen SM and Nathaniel Cowin and Benjamin Norton representing the student body. Thank you to everyone who assisted in the planning and operation of this special event.

Last Tuesday we held our 2nd meeting for 2018 and were once again pleased to see new faces and welcome new friends to our group. It was great to see our community taking advantage of this forum to discuss new initiatives, gain feedback from past events and make friendly suggestions for improvement.
