Principal’s News – 8 November 2017

Year 12 students participated in their final class mass and a tree planting ceremony in the College grounds. On Tuesday 24 October, the Graduation of the Class of 2017 took place with hundreds of students, staff and family members present. On behalf of the entire community, I extend our best wishes to all students over the forthcoming examination period.

Shae Mackrill (11OM) has earned the Queen’s Scout. Only a small percentage of the 47 million members globally reach this level. Shae is part of the 1st Gembrook Venturer Unit.

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Mullum Cluster VET (Vocational Education and Training) Awards Evening. Mrs Vivienne Egan hosted the event as a member of the Mullum Cluster VET Executive. In total, nine students from St Joseph’s College received nominations and five received the prestigious award. Congratulations to these students, Mr Barry Campbell (VET Building and Construction Trainer) and other trainers from various training centres.

All the best for the fortnight ahead.
