June 6, 2018

Mr Michael Weadon finished the term at the end of last week, as he undertakes his Long Service Leave. Michael will return at the start of Term Three and he will complete his Semester One Reports at this time.

The Middle School Examinations have all been concluded this week so our final focus for the term is in Week Ten with the entire Middle School changing classroom location to Melbourne.

In the final week of Term Two the Melbourne Experience is designed to promote important life skills, such as independence, initiative and responsibility, and provide a real world link to the Year 9 Curriculum.

The Melbourne Experience Objectives include:

  • Learn about different aspects of Melbourne

  • History, Culture, Arts, Sport, Design and Innovation

  • Learn how to use public transport

  • How to navigate around the Melbourne CBD

  • Develop teamwork and independence skills

  • Experience a range of activities across the CBD: Such as

    MCG/Sports Museum Tour, Shrine Tour, NGV Tour, Eureka Skydeck Tour, Melbourne Gaol Tour, Melbourne Museum Tour. Your son should now have a complete timetable for the week and the necessary permission form via PAM needs to be completed.

    In Term Three, Year 9 students will have the opportunity to participate in Ballroom Dancing Classes with Year 9 students from Loreto College.- Classes will be conducted in the Pavilion at St Patrick’s College, from 4:00pm to 5:00pm.- There is a 200 student limit of places available in both the lessons and the Social. This is of course a combination of both schools, thus only 100 St Patrick’s College boys will be able to attend.

    Cost:– – – – – – – – – – – – – $25.00 (including GST) which covers the four dancing lessons.

    There will be a culminating -‘Social’ following the 4 dancing classes.

    I hope your son will have the opportunity to participate in this most enjoyable activity.-

    Letters have been sent home with your son outlining the Year 9 Dance Program with Loreto College on Tuesday this week.
