Prayer for Our Winter Term, My LIFE Careers Expo, Pre-apprenticeship Congratulations, Staffing and Policies


Dear Holy Cross College Community
 
My LIFE Launch & Careers Expo
We have had a very busy start to Winter Term. One of our major events is taking place tomorrow evening – the launch of the ‘My LIFE Framework and our Careers Expo’. Regardless of the weather, I am hoping to see as many of our families attend, even for part of the evening, which commences at 5pm in the LIMA Sports Centre. This evening is compulsory for our Year 10 students.

Pre-Apprenticeship News
Congratulations to student, Joshua Couzens, for gaining a Pre-Apprenticeship for the next semester in Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology.
 
Staffing
Our Social Worker, Miss Louise Kane, has resigned as she will be returning to Ireland. Louise joined us at the start of the year and developed many effective relationships in such a short time. I thank Louise for her dedication to our students this year and wish her the very best for a safe return to Ireland.

We welcome Mrs Alisha Jones; Coordinator of Counselling and Mrs Liesa Franchina; Senior Youth Worker. Alisha will commence Week 5 this Winter Term, and Liesa will commence in Spring Term. Both ladies will be at the relationships/Wellbeing booth on Wednesday night at the Careers Expo. Please feel free to take the opportunity to welcome our new wellbeing staff members to our community.

Our Vice Principal, Mr Peter Collins, will be taking leave for the whole of 2022, with the intention of returning in 2023. We will have the opportunity to wish Peter well, towards the end of the year.
