Your Community News | Week 5

Last Thursday evening, mums with year 11 boys met for a lovely and lively dinner at My Thai in Auchenflower. Bowls of delicious fresh food were juggled left and right in amongst great conversations including our sons, books, shows, art and family.

Staff looking after us were wonderful and talking continued on the footpath as we were leaving. Keep an eye out for future socials on the app, the official communication channel for the College. Please subscribe to Year 11 tag to not miss the notices! Don’t miss another super evening. Another evening is being planned – another great chance to join with mums of our year level and get to know one another! Jay Mooney, Year 11 Parent Liaison.

Meeting Wrap Up

Well we certainly experienced some cooler weather to celebrate our Mothers’ Day Breakfast and the weekend. The Brekky was again a wonderful success with delicious food and warm drinks.

All are welcome and we are always interested in your views, feedback
and presenting any issues you’d like to discuss. If you’d like any further information

Year 6 Mass

Following the Mass on Friday 25 May, we will all get together for morning tea. Parents are asked to please send a (small) plate of food with your son (deliver to the Hall kitchen before school). If your son has specific allergies, it might be best if you make something that he can eat – he will then know to look for Mum’s cooking as his best and safest option!

6L and 6N to bring savoury
6T and 6B to bring sweet
