YEAR 12 GRADUATION MASS
On Thursday evening we celebrated our Year 12 Graduation Mass. Our Eucharistic Liturgy calls our Year 12 Students to go forth into the world carrying the light of Christ in their hearts and minds, which is reflective of our theme, You are the Light of the World. The bond of love and friendship these students have built together will continue beyond Mater Dei Catholic College and will be an ever important part of their lives in the future. The Liturgy included a beautiful Candle Ceremony whereby the Students received a Candle from House Leader, assembling in front of the Community as the class of 2019, to receive a blessing before venturing off into their post-School lives. It was a very emotive and beautiful experience to see our students gather together for this poignant moment in their lives.
YEAR 12 CATHOLIC STUDIES - SERVICE PROJECT
Mrs Walker's Year 12 Catholic Studies Class have been hard at work in the kitchen baking jam drops and choc chip biscuits for Wagga's most needy community members. These donations were well received by volunteers at Vinnies - Micah Hubb and the Wagga Wagga Care Van for distribution. The agencies remarked on the generous spirit and compassionate nature of our Mater Dei students and how willing they are to reach out to those who most need their support. Thank you to Mrs Walker and Mrs McCoullough for your support of our Catholic Studies class in this service project.
YEAR 8 REFLECTION DAY - 24 OCTOBER 2019
A Reflection Day for Year 8 Students has been scheduled for early next term, on Thursday 24 October, 2019. The day will involve a series of gender focused workshops, led by ‘Your Choicez’, designed to support students as they navigate our complex, digital world. Students will be engaged in workshops on site at the College, with David and Katie Kobler, throughout the day.
Please feel free to visit their website for further information.
A letter will be sent home to parents/carers and students early next term with further details. Students are encouraged to wear modest, appropriate casual clothing on the day.
