On Tuesday morning, we will hold our annual Shrove Tuesday pancake breakfast
in the Valley. This is a combined Junior Years and Prefect initiative to raise money for Edmund Rice Camps.
Edmund Rice Camps provide holiday experiences for young people aged 7-16 years. Many of the participants
come from what could be considered as marginalised or disadvantaged backgrounds who are not in a position
to afford such an experience. The money raised will contribute to making this a reality for a number of
these young people.
Junior Years Representative Council
At our Junior Years Assembly
last Friday, Student Representative Council (SRC) members for Year 1-6 classes were announced. I was honoured
to present students with badges and I applaud them for their desire to serve Rostrevor and the community.
Students and families should be justifiably proud.
The following young men were identified through
a democratic voting process in each class and their nominations were supported by Pastoral Care staff.
Their roles are, in the first instance, to offer another level of leadership at the classroom level as
they provide positive role modelling to their peers. It is also their responsibility, via classroom meetings,
to represent the opinions of their classmates at our SRC Meetings which are held twice per term. Through
this mechanism we aim to provide them with an opportunity to build on their leadership strengths, to raise
any concerns the students in their class may have or to promote opportunities to assist the boys in our
I would like to congratulate these young men on their roles:
Gabriel Leonard and Aristo Wiguna
Year 2: Anthony Cerracchio and Harry
Year 3: Henry Askem and Daniel Piteo
Dan McGuire-Coward and Thomas Ford
Year 5B: Jakub Camm and Max Penna
Year 5R: Thomas Hancock and Miles Fotheringham
Simon Vello and Bradley Sweet
Year 6R: Bailey Patterson and Luca Fantasia
Thought for the Week
Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture
of leisure as gratification. To put it another way: people who work must take the time to relax, to be
with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport. - Pope
With this in mind, have a wonderful weekend!
