On Wednesday 3rd February we will celebrate the commencement of our school year with an opening mass at the Mother of Good Counsel Church. Like last year, we will be holding two masses Year 7, 8 and 12 at 9.00am and Year 9, 10 and 11 at 11.00am. The College Student Leaders will be formally commissioned at the 9.00am mass. Parents are most welcome to attend.

Over the weekend of Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th January, the Year 12 Captains – Ben and Reahn and Vice Captains—Peter and Abbey spent time at the Marist College, Ashgrove under the supervision of Year 12 Coordinator Bruce Oliver, learning what it means to be a Marist Leader along with Marist Student Leaders from around Queensland. This was an important formation opportunity for them and provided them with some foundational blocks on which to build their leadership this year. The remaining Year 12 Student Leadership Team members have been elected this week and will be announced to the College at the Opening Mass.
