VCE Awards Assembly

On Thursday we gathered as a College community, both in the gym and live streamed to classrooms, to celebrate the Class of 2020 VCE Awards. It was wonderful to gather in acknowledging the great success of so many students in that most extraordinary year. 2020 College Dux, Elena Cruz spoke powerfully of the 'ever mounting sense of trepidation that 2020 brought, arduously climbing the VCE mountain while simultaneously balancing on the precipice of a pandemic'. Elena also spoke on behalf of all students in acknowledging the incredible commitment of staff who were so steadfast in their belief and support of every student.

We warmly congratulate all students from the Class of 2020. As they prepare to enter tertiary courses and prepare for their future endeavours, we wish them abundant blessings and trust that Veritas will guide them in the way of truth.

Our 2021 College Captains interviewed Elena for our podcast series and that link will be published shortly. I am sure all Year 12 students will be interested in Elena's insights and advice.

Student Leadership Formation

Student Leaders in senior portfolios met with the Principal, Deputy Principals and Head of Student Formation for morning tea on Friday. The purpose of the gathering was to affirm their leadership work to date and check in with progress reports on many areas of College activity. The leaders spoke of their appreciation and joy in being able to engage with and lead events that were unable to occur last year. Student leaders are currently working on preparations for the Swimming Carnival, Project Compassion events and Fiesta celebrations for St Catherine’s day. We commend all student leaders, at every year level, on their ‘leadership as service’ approach.
