MARIAN FEAST DAY
On Tuesday May 24, the College celebrated Marian Feast Day honouring the two founding orders that established
our school - the Marist brothers, founded by Marcellin Champagnat; and the Sisters of Mercy, founded by Catherine
McAuley. We were fortunate to have representatives from both orders present, along with past College Staff and
parents. Many thanks to all those who assisted on the day, in particular, all the students and staff involved in
reading, processions, choir and band. Thank you to Father Christian for the beautiful mass and Matthew Segrave
for his coordination of the band and choir who sounded amazing. The day followed with an afternoon tea for staff
and students enjoying each others company with activities such as Bubble Soccer, Trikes and Sumo Wrestling -
overall a great day was had by all!
COUNTRY CUP RUGBY LEAGUE
The U13’s came up against Griffith High and
Wade High as part of the Country Cup on
Wednesday. The boys put in strong
performances up against two big, mobile
and experienced football teams. Our boys
were certainly not disgraced getting across
the line on five occasions between the two
games. The team were well serviced
through the hard running of Neil and
Viliami along with Deondre
and Jackson doing the dirty work in
defence. As a whole the team played
extremely well and should be congratulated
for their effort put in on the day.
U15’s played Griffith High in the Country Cup and put in a stellar performance. The boys went down 3
tries to 2 in a very closely contested game. We were lead by Toutai's strong runs up the centre, followed
closely by Matthew Parisotto and Thomas Royal eating many meters up as well. Noah Negus also put in
a great performance tackling everything that moved and didn’t allow anyone through his side of the field.
Overall the whole group played exceptionally well and went very close to clinching victory.
Keep your heads up boys, we will get them next time!
