Congratulations and well done to everyone on your efforts over the past seven weeks after returning from remote learning. I particularly want to acknowledge the boys and their families for all you have done during this time. In a time of much uncertainty one thing that has been reiterated is that as parents, you are the primary educator of your children and the combined effort of “home” with the support of teachers, enhanced learning, learning support officers, IT department, the College’s wellbeing team (counsellors, REC) and office staff have all had a role to play in the educational journey of your son in term 4 at St Patrick’s. Without the combined effort of all, the learnings from Term 4, both in and out of the classroom, would not have been possible. A sincere thank you to everyone.
Boys need to be congratulated on the way they are approaching the English, Maths, Humanities and Science Exams this week. A lot of preparation and revision has gone into these and certainly is a learning curve, which will hold them in good stead for the future.
Friday morning will see the revamped Junior School Awards Ceremony to be held in the Pavilion. It will be wonderful to be able to address the Year levels as a cohort, one of very few for the whole year. All award winners should be proud of their achievements, whilst some who may not have won an award should be equally as proud of their year. For some it may be a time to reflect and set new goals for 2022. See below the list of academic award winners.
