Boarding Bulletin Board - March 21, 2019

‘Boarding Bulletin Board (T1 22/3/19)

News around the Boarding Precinct

  • Boarding Activities: Over the last two weekends the boys have enjoyed a trip to the Wendouree Shopping Mall and to the Golf Driving Range. The trip to the Mall was by popular request as the boys enjoyed their trip there earlier in the year. It was great to watch the boys get out and enjoy their shopping experience. Last weekend, a number of boys took up the opportunity to go to the local Golf Driving Range. Although golf is not a popular sport amongst our boys it was great to see so many boys take up this opportunity and have a small experience as to what it’s like to play golf.

  • On Tuesday 19 March several of our Boarders took part in the first game for the 1st XVIII against Assumption College, Kilmore. They had a decisive win scoring 81 to Assumption 41. Special mentions must go to Fraser Marris and Cooper Atchison who played well and were nominated as Best Players. Also to Stanley Tipiloura who kicked his first goal for the College. Well done to all the boys and we look forward to supporting you throughout the year.

  • On 14 March three of our Boarders represented the College at the BAS Swimming Carnival. Congratulations must go to Eoghan Purser (Yr7) who came 2nd in 50m Backstroke, 50m Butterfly and both Relays and 3rd in 50m Freestyle. Khy Jess (Yr8) who came 1st in 50m Freestyle and Nick Hodgson (Yr10) who came 2nd in 100m Freestyle, 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke.

  • Last Friday 15 March the College celebrated St Patrick’s Day. In Boarding the boys woke up to find many of the common areas had been decorated accordingly to begin the College wide festivities. A special thanks must go to Joyce Cleary who donated and made the decorations for us.

    Up-Coming Events

  • I wish to draw your attention to our Boarder Parent/Student/Teacher Interviews on Friday, 5th April, the final day of classes for Term (1). This is an opportunity for you to meet with your son/s teachers, learn how your son/s has progressed in this first term and, most importantly, how they can continue to show improvement through the remainder of the semester. At this time, Tam, Ryan and Mr.Silcock will be available if you wish to discuss anything with us from a Boarding perspective. The interviews will be held in the Boarding Dining Room and an afternoon tea will be served for those who wish.

    Appointments can be made by emailing (gkydd@stpats.vic.edu.au) or contacting (0353224400) Glenis who will coordinate these interviews. Appointment times will be available from 2.40pm (classes finish at 2.30pm) and run until 3.40pm. If you are unable to see a teacher we would encourage you to email them directly or call them.

  • End of Term 1 Friday April 5th. Classes finish at 2:30pm.

    Note: At the start of Term 2 Aerosols will be banned throughout the Boarding Precinct. This is due to sensitivity of our Fire System as we have recently been informed that aerosols will set it off.

    Note: If you require your son to leave the College early, for whatever reason, permission must first be sought from Mr.Silcock. Thank you for your cooperation.
