Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent and, with it, the start of Project Compassion appeal.  While students across all year levels receive the ashes in a series of liturgies throughout the day, the Bulletin features the first of the Project Compassion Lenten Stories.

  • Photos from last Sunday's Old Scholars' Mass
  • A further appeal inviting more parents to sign up to a roster for Sports Day.  You can do so here.
  • A reminder to Year 6-10 parents about the MYP Parent Information Evening on Wednesday 13 March.

  • In response to recent reports in the media, we share a YouTube Fact Sheet courtesy of thinkyouknow.org.au; designed to help parents keep their child safe online.

Term 1 Interschool Sport

The first round of interschool sport commences this week, with Water Polo Thursday afternoon and Saturday Morning Sport this Saturday, 16 February.  Final draws for Saturday's games - particularly times - were not confirmed at the time our newsletter went to press.  As such, please be sure that your daughter/s check the noticeboard in the Gym, to confirm what time their team will be playing on Saturday.  Information will also be available directly from the SA Catholic Secondary Schools Girls Sports Association (SACSSGSA) website, later in the week.
