2017 HSC Drama Show Case

On Wednesday evening the Year 12 Drama class of 2017 entertained us with an evening of outstanding performances at the annual Drama Showcase. Both their monologues and individual performances were warmly received by a very supportive audience. This group of Drama students are unique in their close friendship and support of each other. They have demonstrated commitment, creativity and passion for Drama, and their final Showcase was evidence of this. The Group Performances used a range of dramatic forms and techniques to explore issues which are important to our world; covering mental health, environmental concerns and the dangers of modern science. We laughed, we cried and we were challenged by the issues presented. All ten students also presented an Individual Performance which they have been working on since Term 4 last year -  commanding the stage with their conviction, passion, comic timing and deep understanding of their character. It has taken many months of after school rehearsals to get these performances to the stage they are at - and I congratulate the students for their ongoing persistence, commitment and creativity. It has been such a rewarding process to be involved in. Special thanks go to our technical crew Christy Koufos and Chloe Hart for operating the lighting and sound, and to our stage crew Bailey McWhinnie and Joshua Challenor. They will also have this responsibility on Monday in the HSC examination. We would also like to thank Mrs Mary Givney-Clarke for taking the photos on the evening.Both myself and Ms Keily are so proud of the progress all the students have made with their performances, and we wish this class all the best for the final HSC examination on Monday.

2017 Project Compassion

 

During Lent we raised money for Caritas’ annual fundraiser, Project Compassion. This year, the Project Compassion theme was “Love your Neighbour”, taken from Jesus’ teaching to love you neighbour as yourself. This year our Project Compassion neighbours included people from the Philippines, Timor-Leste, Vietnam and Fiji. Every cent we raised will go directly to those who need it, to combat poverty, promote justice and uphold the dignity of every person.

I am very proud to announce that our College contributed $17,000 for the appeal this year. Thank you to all families for your generous support on this initiative.

Mr Declan Donohue
Director of Religious Education
