End of Term Three Information

End of Term Three Information

Principal’s Message, Senior Formal and Sports Awards Details, Holiday Hours for Uniform Shop

As we come to the end of a busy and exhausting term we have many blessings to feel grateful about. The daily connections we are able to experience with our students through watching our young men grow into the fine young men we know they will become. We are often able to reflect on all the many parts that help form our students. While we enjoy success and the many happy times in life, it is most often in adversity or challenge that we see our students gain confidence in their abilities and growth as a person. Throughout this year our students have been faced with many challenges during the global pandemic which is a one in 100 year pandemic. While we have definitely seen our students disappointed at times, due to the many cancellations caused by alert levels, and the fatiguing effect that is often associated with constant change, I have been proud of the way our students have taken change as an opportunity to be innovative. The ideas that our students have come up with, when the status quo has been no longer possible, will hold them in great stead moving into a very changeable future. 

As I write this during lunchtime, I watch a group of excitable Year 7 boys playing an intense game of handball. The smiles, laughter and excitement is because they have two Year 13 students playing handball, interacting with them, and in what I witness as growing our culture. Relationships are at the centre of all we do, or, as our boys call it, our brotherhood. I hope all of our students take this away from their time at STC. This is centred in our faith and lies in our relationships with each other. I know we are healthy as a community when this is at the top of our priority list. 

I trust you and your sons are able to gain some rest and time together enjoying each others company. I look forward to reconnecting again after the holidays.
