It was wonderful to spend today with the Year 6 students hiking on the Bibbulmun Track.  Our walk commenced in Kalamunda, at the beginning of the 1000 kilometre trail, and we walked 9 kilometres through beautiful bushland. We were fortunate to have such lovely weather for our hike and it was pleasing to see the  students rise to the challenge as they climbed up and down hills.  During LIFE Week the Year 6 students will see the terminus of the Bibbulmun Track in Albany and will also walk another section of the trail.



This week we welcomed Mrs Christina Davini and Mrs Jackie Cuff back from Parental Leave.  Mrs DaVini has returned to her role of Frayne House Coordinator.  Thanks to Mrs Laura Billington who took on this role whileMrs Davini was on leave.  Miss Jessie De Leon who did some work at Holy Cross College in Semester One has taken on a part-time contract for Semester 2.



A group of students dramatised the Gospel at today’s Opening Mass for the Catholic Performing Arts Festival.  Thanks to Mr McRae and to the students involved for their work in preparing for this celebration for Catholic Schools.  Each year we have a growing number of students involved in the Performing Arts Festival in the various categories of dance, drama and music.



This week Junior School students formed the words NAIDOC on the College oval as part of the College’s commemoration of NAIDOC Week.  The theme for this year’s NAIDOC Week was Because Of Her, We Can.  It celebrates the essential role that women have played – and continue to play – as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels.


We are about to commence Stage 6A of our building programme which includes a Wellbeing Facilities and an extension of the staffroom, as well as the construction of additional sports courts.  The construction fence is in place and work will commence very soon..  I appreciate the smooth transition to the changes to access and ask that you remain patient as the build progresses.
