On September 12 2018, Schools Industry Partnership hosted their annual work placement awards for employers and Year 12 students at Wyndham College, Nirimba. All of our Year 12 VET teachers nominated a student in their class that demonstrated excellence and received positive feedback from their employer. St John Paul II Catholic College had three students nominated across four VET courses. Read more to see the StJPII recipients for the Student Excellence Awards!
As we move towards the end of another term, the SRC have shown no signs of slowing down! All SRC representatives for 2019 have been elected, including our new College Leaders for 2019, Anointed Erhunmwunse, Isabella Williams and Mitchell Pawlyszyn. I would like to take this opportunity to thank and farewell our current year 12 SRC members, Georgina Davies and Justin Danao; and our College Leaders, Brodie Chidgey and Andrew Smith.
Term 3 saw a very successful season for our sporting students at St John Paul II. We had 5 teams make the semi finals, unfortunately know one converting into a Grand Final appearance. Congratulations to all our MCS and MCCS teams for Term 3. Term 4 sport signups and tryouts have commenced for students in a range of sports (see article). Our annual Sports BBQ Presentation is also quickly approaching!
Plenary 2020 is the name given to a process initiated by the Australian bishops. Our bishops are inviting people to engage in listening, dialogue and discernment about the future of the Church in Australia around the Plenary Council meetings in 2020 and 2021. “We must become a humble, listening and discerning church. The Plenary Council… will be an opportunity for us to listen humbly and with open hearts to one another and especially to what the Spirit is saying to us at this time.” -Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv
