Good Bye and Good Luck Year 12
We bid our Year 12 students farewell this week. The end of their formal classes was celebrated with three very special ceremonies. The first of these ceremonies was the Graduation Mass held on Wednesday evening in the Edmund Rice Centre. The Graduation Mass was the final time Year 12 students gathered as a group with their parents and family members to celebrate the Eucharist at St Edward’s College. The theme for the mass was “Young Men with Purpose”. On Thursday the St Edward’s College Old Boys Union provided  breakfast for Year 12 students to officially welcome them into the Old Boys fraternity, this was followed by a whole school academic assembly, where the College community acknowledged Year 12 students for their academic endeavours. We wish all of Year 12 the very best of luck in their final exams and look forward to seeing them at the HSC results BBQ on Friday 15 December.

Challenges at Year 9 Camp
Well done boys! A great camp because of the positive attitude that you applied to every activity. Every boy attempted, assisted with and/or completed every activity on the program. The activities included the Vertical Challenge; a series of climbs up about 10 m via ladders, rope, telegraph poles and wires. Giant Swing, High Ropes Course and the Leap of Faith, which involved a jump off the top of a 9 m pole on to a trapeze! Half the group camped out in tents Wednesday night and were hit by strong winds and rain at about 2 am, interrupting their slumber. Unfortunately the winds prevented the second group from camping out but they still experienced the challenges of boiling water and cooking their dinner, some more successful than others. The canoeing presented its own challenges for some groups paddling into head winds and a changing tide. Throughout the whole camp, the staff were continually impressed with the boys' willingness to get on with things and take things in their stride without complaining even though many of them were tired. The boys are also to be commended on their positive interactions and support for each other. A big thank you to staff who gave up their time to attend camp and look after the boys, encouraging them to take on new challenges.   [smallgallery fooid="7677"]

NAPLAN Growth Assemblies
On 7th September, Year 7 and Year 9 students participated in  NAPLAN Growth Assemblies. We congratulated students who displayed significant growth from their previous results in NAPLAN to their current 2017 NAPLAN results. These students were recognised for growth in Reading, Writing and Numeracy. Each student received an award in the nominated area. Some students managed to achieve growth in two areas and our most exceptional students achieved growth across all three areas.  At St Edward’s College we believe in acknowledging these students for their effort and increased commitment to education.
