Com­mu­nity spirit is on track

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

COM­MU­NITY in­volve­ment is one of the defin­ing fea­tures of St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege.

In early March, stu­dents dis­played their work through a se­nior art exhibition and wear­able art pa­rade for Zonta In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day at Lure.

The col­lege now looks for­ward to the Reef Festival in July/Au­gust.

St Catherine’s par­tic­i­pates in fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for St Vin­cent de Paul, as well as so­cial ac­tion in its Mini Vin­nies pro­gram.

One way stu­dents help is through Proser­pine Nurs­ing Home visits.

Ruby Mur­doch, Liam Stephens and Aaron Moore rep­re­sented St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege in the Lions Youth of the Year com­pe­ti­tion.

All stu­dents worked hard to par­tic­i­pate in this com­pe­ti­tion, con­sist­ing of an ap­pli­ca­tion process, in­ter­view and speech.

Stu­dents re­ceived NAB ac­co­lades for their par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Com­plet­ing a Cer­tifi­cate III in Maritime Oper­a­tions dur­ing her time at Cruise Whit­sun­days, Year 11 stu­dent Pearl Giles took a step for­ward in her life.

St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege prin­ci­pal David Burke con­grat­u­lated Pearl on her trainee­ship.

“Pearl has been very proac­tive in se­cur­ing this op­por­tu­nity by un­der­tak­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence, com­plet­ing other rel­e­vant tick­ets and cer­tifi­cates and in­ves­ti­gat­ing the re­quire­ments to ap­ply for the trainee­ship,” he said.

“Pearl has been very or­gan­ised and en­thu­si­as­tic through the whole process and is look­ing for­ward to her ca­reer in the maritime in­dus­try.”
