Stage 2 Examinations
Year 12 students commenced their exams on Monday of this week, commencing with a 3 hour Biology exam. Today the students sit the new Essential Maths (2 hours), General Mathematics (2 hours) and Mathematical Methods (3 hours) examinations. Another new Stage 2 subject, English Literary Studies, had an exam on Tuesday (90 minutes).

I am delighted to report that a large number of Stage 2 students have been working in the College library during their SWOT VAC week and between exams. They have been able to readily access their teachers and to focus intensely on their revision. In addition, we have hired the services of Old Scholar, Sam Laube, to assist Mathematics and Physics students prepare for their final examinations. Good luck to all students!

Year 12 Student Leaders for 2018 Camp
Last Sunday and Monday the newly elected Student Leaders for 2018 participated in a 2-day Leadership Camp at West Beach Caravan Park. The facilitator was Steve Lacy from Leading Teams who took the group of 30 young leaders through a highly engaging program of leadership training and team building.

Over the course of 2018 you will hear plenty from this wonderful group of young people. They developed key themes and strategies for 2018 and worked together incredibly well.

Marist Day Celebrations
Congratulations to the Year 11 Student Leaders who organised a terrific program for the inaugural Senior School Marist Day last Wednesday. Our students enjoyed the activities that were on offer, and especially enjoyed the food that was available for purchase. The $2,430 raised from this event will go to the communities that the Marist Immersion Teams will visit in November/December this year.

There was a real sense of House spirit and it was very impressive the way our Year 11 leaders worked together to prepare, organise and lead the various stalls and activities. They should feel very proud of their achievements and confident with the leadership skills they have developed throughout the year.

We thank Katherine, Kristen and Bec from the Own It Project for the work they have undertaken with our Year 11 leadership group this year and look forward to continuing this partnership in 2018.

Head of Senior School
