Term 4 Week 6

Graduation Dinner

Our Year 12 cohort and their families came together for the Graduation Dinner. Held at the National Wine Centre, it was a final opportunity to celebrate the hard work and determination our students have demonstrated over their academic journey.

With assignments finally submitted and exam finished, it was an opportunity for students to relax, reminisce and celebrate with their peers, families and staff. Students looked fabulous in their academic gowns, proudly displaying their House colours as they were presented with their certificates from Tina Neate – Principal. At the conclusion of the formalities, it was wonderful to see the dance floor filled with students and families.

We congratulate the Class of 2022 for all of their amazing achievements and wish them all the best with their future endeavours.

PE Week 2022

What a fabulous fun filled week we had, celebrating all things PE with our goal of promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.

The week started off with Mindfulness Monday, where students started the morning with meditation, followed by yoga and mindfulness colouring at lunchtime. Togetherness Tuesday was busy with all five Houses competing in a Kahoot. SANFL ran an AFL clinic and Pushing Performance delivered a Health Hustle aerobics and fitness session. At lunchtime, students battled it out on the court in Fast 5 Netball. Win it Wednesday, was a scavenger hunt with lots of prizes up for grabs! Archery was set up at lunchtime for Target Thursday and students had their eye on the prizes! The students finished off a great week with Fun Friday pedalling their way to a delicious fruit smoothie.

Students also participated in a BFT gym session. We had a great week and thank the students for getting involved in the activities.

Catholic Girls Schools Netball Carnival

Year 7, 8 and 9 students headed to Priceline Stadium to play a Netball carnival against other Catholic girls’ schools.

During the lunch break the players heard from Thunderbird player, Lucy Austin who gave the students and insight into high level netball tips and tricks when balancing netball commitments and school.

It was a great day, and the students are to be commended on their sportsmanship, encouragement, and effort.

We had incredible results – the Year 7 students won 3 and narrowly lost 2, the Year 8 students were undefeated, winning all 4 games and the Year 9 students won 2 and lost 2. Well done girls!

Year 9 Retreat – Brigid: Woman of the Land

Our Year 9 Retreat was centred on the land. It is well known that the Celt’s have a strong connection with the land, and influenced St Brigid’s love of nature in her native, Ireland. 

The students learnt about St Brigid’s connection with the ancient Celtic Goddess, Brigid. The Celts, like all ancient races, relied heavily on the land and amongst other things, the ancient Goddess Brigid was renowned for her assurance of fertility of the land, animals, and people. Given her significance to the culture and people of ancient Ireland, it was no surprise that she plays such an important role and that she became and integral part of Christianity. The land and nature were heavily connected to the St Brigid that we know today.

Students gained knowledge of the synchronicity between Indigenous peoples and St Brigid’s connection to the land. We focused on the Kaurna people and visited the city including various locations that are significant to the Kaurna people to deepen students’ understanding of their place in our world.
