The weather held off and we finally were able to hold the GCC Athletics Carnival on Wednesday 27 July. A fantastic turn-out of students helped to make the day a great success with much work from the P.E. Department in particular in the lead up to the Carnival and all by the College staff on the day. Polding were again the overall winners with a commanding lead on the scoreboard. Mackillop won the coveted Spirit Cup. It was a fantastic day for the College with team spirit on display all round.

As part of the Science Week 2016 the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, Queensland branch is sponsoring the O’Donnell Schools Lecture. On Friday 19 August we will be hosting Dr Wade Martens from Queensland University of
Technology. All interested Year 10, 11 and 12 students will be given the opportunity to attend Dr Martens lecture on photocatalysis. We are very lucky to be given this opportunity and I would encourage students to attend even if they are not currently studying Chemistry. For further details please see the flyer included in the latest newsletter..          


We are currently in the process of conducting Enrolment Interviews for our 2017 Year 7 students. Should any families be aware of friends or relatives considering a place at Good Counsel in 2017, could you please pass this information on to them as we will begin planning for 2017 shortly.
