St Stephen’s ready for re­ward­ing year

Tablelands Advertiser - - LIFESTYLE -

ST Stephen’s ex­tends a warm wel­come to the fam­i­lies of year 7 stu­dents and other new stu­dents to the col­lege and wishes them a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at St Stephen’s.

The col­lege is pre­par­ing for an­other ac­tion-packed and ex­cit­ing school year.

Prin­ci­pal Ida Pi­nese said the first sig­nif­i­cant event in the col­lege cal­en­dar would be the open­ing Mass and in­duc­tion of stu­dent lead­ers on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 6.

“With a strong fo­cus on so­cial jus­tice and ser­vice to oth­ers, the lead­ers of 2017 in­clude our four Col­lege Cap­tains, eight Pas­toral House Lead­ers, the Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil Ex­ec­u­tive and the So­cial Jus­tice Com­mit­tee,” she said.

“These lead­ers pro­vided tremen­dous as­sis­tance with year 6 tran­si­tion in De­cem­ber 2016 and we value the con­tri­bu­tion they will make to en­hanc­ing our cul­ture in 2017.”

Mrs Pi­nese said the col­lege com­mu­nity con­grat­u­lated the Se­niors of 2016 on their ex­cel­lent OP re­sults.

She com­mended the grad­u­at­ing stu­dents for their ded­i­ca­tion across a range of ar­eas and wished them all the best for their bright fu­tures.

“We ac­knowl­edge the hard work that was car­ried out by stu­dents, staff and par­ents in help­ing all our stu­dents achieve their goals,” Mrs Pi­nese said.

As the col­lege starts its 12th year of op­er­a­tion as a Catholic Sec­ondary Col­lege, staff are busy with prepa­ra­tions to en­sure an­other fan­tas­tic year.

“We look for­ward to an­other suc­cess­ful year of work­ing with our col­lege com­mu­nity and the broader com­mu­nity to as­sist our stu­dents to achieve their per­sonal best in di­verse ar­eas of col­lege life,” Mrs Pi­nese said.
