Deputy Principal Report

by Deputy Principal, Mrs Elizabeth Ryan

On May 5, the College celebrated Edmund Rice Day. Following a whole school liturgy celebrated in the O’Malley gym the boys embarked upon the traditional walkathon. Despite torrential rain on the previous day, the weather was perfect. Our students enjoyed the friendship and camaraderie of their mates as they walked Victoria Park and Lake Wendouree in glorious sunshine. Believe it or not I managed to get sunburnt in Ballarat in May. Unheard of!

Upon their return to the College the annual Handball competition was held. The 2021 champions were.

Junior School: Champion Dylan Hiscock

Runner Up:  Riley Pritchard

Middle School: Champion Sam Lalor

Runner Up: Gabriel Gallas

Senior School: Champion James Harrington

Runner up Will Cook

Congratulations to all involved. Special thanks to the Student Council for leading the event.

Our Edmund Rice Day Celebrations rounded off with the annual St Pats Has Talent. Once again, I was inspired by our students. Their talents and their capacity to be such a generous audience supporting and encouraging all who performed is admirable and a credit to all Paddy Boys!
