St Patrick’s Day 2014

StPatrick (Demo)

The Patron Saint of our College was a person of vision, determination, courage, sacrifice, honesty, integrity, faith and resilience. These are just a few of the qualities that enabled him to perform the work that he did against constant and often hostile opposition. These are also the qualities we try to instil and expect in our students as they journey into the world of employment.

On Monday 17 March we are once again celebrating St Patrick’s Day at our college. The day will begin with a Liturgy in our Flexible Learning Area at 9.00-10.00am.

Normal lessons will resume at the conclusion of the Liturgy until the fun begins at 1.00pm when stalls and activities will be operating outside.

Students will be operating a number of minor fundraising events, which will include a barbecue, drinks and ice-cream, long kick competition, show and shine and sound-off, a “Minute to Win It”, hammer time, how many students can fit into…, cupcakes, hairspray, guessing how many lollies in a jar and strength competitions. There will be plenty to eat and do!

Proceeds from the day’s activities will be donated to Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion.

If you are in a position to donate any goods or services that could be offered as prizes or used to assist our fundraising, please let Mr Mark Prokopec know asap. Donations gratefully received.

The day will conclude with our annual inter-trade tug-o-war on the oval.

Family members are most welcome to join us for the Liturgy and again later for the fun and fundraising in the yard from 1.00pm.

It’s a great day and an occasion we look forward to celebrating each year.

Students are encouraged to join in the spirit of the day by wearing something green.

Please note that there is an early dismissal on St Patrick’s Day at 2.30pm or following the conclusion of the tug-o-war and presentation of prizes.
