At the RISE UP Assembly on Monday, the new Year 7 SRC representatives were welcomed. I would like to extend a big congratulations to Alice Durkin, Jayden Ramia, Vincent Crisostomo, Emily Vankuyk, Jessica Marasigan, Keith Sarol and Andre Scott. I look forward to working with them as they grow as leaders, sharing their gifts and talents with the College community over the next 18 months.
The Assumption of Mary into Heaven is, according to the beliefs of the Catholic Church, the bodily taking up of the Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her earthly life. This day is marked as a ‘Holy Day of Obligation’ for Catholics. On Wednesday 15 August the whole school celebrated mass to honour the Feast of the Assumption.
A busy start to Term 3 has seen our MCCS and MCS competitions commence. Our girl’s Soccer Teams have had a tremendous start to the year with both teams remaining undefeated thus far. Girls Basketball has also started well with our intermediate and senior teams picking up strong victories over the past two weeks. Boys Touch is underway with our 4 teams playing at least two games each week out at Kingsway Sporting Fields. Our MCS AFL boys have played one game after a Round 1 BYE with our Opens having a strong win where our U14’s had a draw after the game had to be called off in the first half after an opposition injury.
Year 10 student Harry Bazley for the past 9 years has had the privilege of being the Melbourne Storm ballboy for their away games. Harry has been a part of the Melbourne Storm setup throughout the salary cap scandal in 2009 all the way up until the Grand Final win last year and into 2018. Harry arrives early for games, helping set up the warmup and stays back after the game to assist clean up. His role allows him to mingle with players and staff before and after games as well as running out with the players. We caught up with Harry to get an insight into what his experience has been like.
