Term 3, Week 4 - Friday 17 August 2018

From the Principal

Marian Day 2018

As you will see in the gallery below, Marian Day was a high point of Term 3 for our community. Celebrating the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, we take time out on this day every year to honour the contribution of all women in our lives. With this in mind, the beautiful artwork below offers us something of a challenge, 'How well do we live because of her?'

On a personal note, I was thrilled to finish the day on Wednesday having dinner in Cowell with several of our Eyre Peninsula families. As many would know, Rostrevor has always benefitted from the loyal support of families from the west coast. The visit coincided with the Cleve Field Days, where we were well represented by Eugene and Pam Evans along with students Hank Burton, and Cooper Llewelyn.

Best wishes for the week ahead.

Year 4/5 Confirmation

On the evening of Thursday 16 August, we celebrated the Confirmation of Year 4 and 5 students at St Joseph's Parish Church, Tranmere. We were delighted to have Vicar General, Father Philip Marshall lead us in the celebration which was the culmination of months of preparation for the boys involved. This significant step in the faith journey of each of these young men was held in front of a large group of family, friends, sponsors and supporters and our boys were exceptional in both presentation and reverence. We are, as always, indebted to the Tranmere Parish community for their support of our Sacramental Program and I extend our thanks to Mrs Stephanie Roach (Parish Secretary) and Deacon Remo Patroni. Our thanks also to Mrs Debra Monaghan for her role in preparing the boys for this event, Mr Elias Degeorge and the Choir for their wonderful support and Mrs Bev Beneke for the care and attention to detail she showed. Congratulations to these boys and we look forward to celebrating their First Eucharist on Sunday 26 August.

Christian Meditation 

This term our staff have been leading all Junior Campus students in Christian Meditation. Engaging each day after lunch in the oldest and most traditional form of meditation known to man, our boys can stop, reflect and refocus for the afternoon of learning. Much has been said in recent times of the power of mindfulness and meditation and the value it holds in asking us to reflect on ourselves and the world around us. We will trial this for the rest of the 2018 academic year with the view of seeing how this time each day may support more engaged learning in the afternoon.
