Year 10 Science and Engineering Challenge

On Tuesday 24 July, 27 Year 10 students and two teachers attended the Science and Engineering Challenge at the University of Wollongong. The day consisted of hands on experiments where the students designed products such as bridges, catapults, string highways, electrical circuits, turbines, a model hand and communication systems and had to test them to gain points towards a certain scenario or challenge. The day was the definition of STEM in action. With each scenario and challenge the student’s products were put to the test and marked to specific guidelines in order to gain points as they were competing against four other schools. The following students attended: Maddison Brymer, Norreigne Catbagan, Kye Childs, Sebastian Cincotta, William Corcoran, Daniel Costandi, Patrick Crehan, Danny Dang, Anna Dau, Daniella Janji, Juliette Jones, Sophia Khouri, Isabelle Lathlean, Mitchell Lee, Jonathan Leong, Julia Mamo, Nicole Marzolla, Emma Mason, Ronan Mauro, Christopher Meyer, Benjamin Moss, Billy Norris, Zara O’Mahony, Amy Parkinson and Jonathan Varga. Most of our products scored in the top two for our categories. A special mention to the bridge builders, the bionic hand team and the electric city teams as they scored the highest points on the day. We won first prize for our challenge day. This challenge is run across the State at various venues and total points go towards a Super Challenge Day. I have just received news we did not make the Super Challenge final but have been shortlisted in case another school is unable to attend. Congratulations to this group of students for getting so close to making the Super Challenge final. Well done for this outstanding achievement. Your ability to communicate as a team, be creative with your problem-solving skills and to critically think to adapt your designs to each challenge or scenario was admirable. The St Patrick’s community is proud of your efforts.

Year of Youth Luncheonimage1

On 13 June, Rose Neilson and attended the Year of Youth Luncheon to meet the Archbishop of Sydney, Anthony Fisher at St Mary’s Cathedral with Mr Donohue. The lunch was at 12.00 noon, starting with the Angelus. Rose and I were seated on one of four tables with students from De La Salle Catholic College, Caringbah, Clancy Catholic College, West Hoxton and Mary Mackillop Catholic College, Wakeley. As the Archbishop entered the room he was met with applause as he sat down at the nearest table, Table 4. Archbishop Fisher led us in saying Grace, then because he was on our table, we were privileged enough to be first to select our food from the buffet followed by the other tables. Next, each table was challenged to come up with a question to ask the Archbishop. Our table asked: “How is the Catholic Church helping the youth through discovering their faith?” In response, Archbishop Fisher acknowledged that at our age we are vulnerable but we must question and doubt everything we hear, as every person does, but this shouldn’t stop us searching for our faith. After each table had asked and received the answer to their question the day was concluded with photos. It was an amazing experience meeting Archbishop Fisher and many students from other schools.

St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal

Youth Ministry2
Thank you to the families who have donated to our annual Winter Appeal for St Vincent de Paul. The first collection has been dropped off to the Sutherland St Vincent de Paul chapter group who will take the donations to needy families in the Sutherland Shire. We have also taken a collection for our Night Patrol visit to the city (as seen here with our Social Justice Leaders - Maxwell Porter and Lauren Forrester). We are still asking for the following donations to assist the St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal. It is not too late to donate: beanies, scarves, socks, men’s and women’s underwear packs, nappies (particularly toddler boys size 10-15kg). Alternatively, we will happily accept donations for our St Vincent de Paul Night Patrol program. Once a month, a team from St Patrick’s College visits the homeless in the city and provides them with food, tea/coffee/hot chocolate and company.

We ask each year group to bring in the following items: 
Year 7: Noodle cups and cup of soups, eg Fantastic Noodles, Continental
Year 8: Individual snack packs of chips (eg potato, Shapes, Tiny Teddy)
Year 9: Any biscuits
Year 10: Muesli bars and small tins of tuna
Year 11: Fruit juice poppers and chocolate share packs
Year 12: Toiletries

Please bring any donations you have to the RE office on Nagle Campus. Thank you for your support for the 2018 Winter Appeal.
