Newsletter No.2 (23 February 2018)

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the continued energetic start to the year. The Swimming Carnival last night was a great example. Well done to all. Congratulations to Age Champions and Benedicta House. More details will follow in the next newsletter

On Thursday, 50 Diocesan Principals and CSO staff spent the day at Kildare, visiting classes and looking at our work to improve classroom practice and use of data. They were very impressed with the calmness of the school community, the teamwork and consideration evident in classes, the focus on peer and self-assessment skills and the use of large spaces to increase teaching and learning options.


On Tuesday, Year 7 students and parents came in for a BBQ and check-in to ensure the start of secondary education has been as productive and stress-free as possible. We restated some key ideas, particularly the commitment to mobilise all our resources to ensure that students have access to the support they need to achieve their potential in 2018. All parents and carers please remember to contact the College quickly if there is a learning or wellbeing concern, so that support and intervention can put into place as soon as possible.

All the best

Rod Whelan | Principal
