It has been wonderful to see the students and their families returning to the College ready to take on the challenges of Term 2, and I am grateful for the warm welcome given to me by this vibrant community as I step into the role of Principal while Mr Sheehy is on some well-deserved long service leave.  

We have had a flying start to Term 2! Our Year 3 and 5 students participated in NAPLAN (National Assessment Program in Literacy and Numeracy) and our Year 3 students have had their Reconciliation workshop with the Parish Sacramental Team in preparation for receiving this Sacrament of Healing later this term. We are starting to prepare for our Cross Country Carnival, and we thank our Phys Ed Specialist teacher, Miss Kristy Wise for her work towards this.  

Our Friends of St John Bosco College hosted a fabulous Mother’s Day breakfast in honour of all our mums and significant women in the lives of our students – this was extremely well attended and was a credit to both the organisers and the participants. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, significant women and our own important people, the children, were treated to a wonderful array of delicious morning treats! It is celebrations like these where one can see the fabric of the community – this is close, well knit and well supported. I sincerely thank all involved!

As we prepare to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, we are also working with our Year 4 students as they will soon be focussing on the Sacrament of the Eucharist and preparing to receive Jesus for the very first time. A very special time in their lives!  

Should you be interested, our next College tour will be on Tuesday 29 May at 4.00pm. You may contact the College and book a place for this, or simply come along and join the group on the day. You will be made very welcome, and I’m certain you will be delighted to view our College.  

Yours in Christ
