Today we celebrated our annual Marcellin Sports Day. Fantastic to see all students getting into the spirit of the day with a variety of creative dress ups and House colours. The annual Mascot’s race was eagerly participated with each House represented by an assortment of characters. Congratulations to Marian for taking out the overall Championship and to Chavoin for winning the House Spirit Shield.

Sports Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the athletic abilities and family spirit of our College. A big thank you to Maintenance and Grounds who make sure the event runs smoothly each year by providing equipment and a brilliant track for our athletes to compete on.

Year 8 Medieval Day

Last week, our Year 8 students engaged in a full day program of Medieval themed activities and presentations that related to their current History topic ‘Medieval Europe and Shogun Japan’.

They learnt more about Medieval Armour, Weapons and Siege Engines, played games such as tug-a-war and bocce, created medieval bunting, and cooked honey cakes using a medieval recipe. A great day had by all!

Good News Story!

A few weeks ago I wrote to the Hove and Brighton Champagnat families expressing concern in regard to their children’s safety whilst travelling to and from school. A few students were taking unnecessary risks and these were duly reported by members of the public.

Let me counterbalance this! Yesterday a member of the public called and reported the following:

I have just witnessed three SHC students at Coles Park Holme purchase a large bottle of water and give it to a homeless man with a dog, along with some money, I think it was $5.

What more can I say! ‘Gotta love these kids!’
