A Welcome to the College Message from the Principal Mr Paul Keenan

"The Good News"
From the Principal's Desk....
Dear Parents

Welcome back to students and families for the commencement Semester 2. It is expected that Mr Luke Reed will return to full time Acting Principal’s duties next Monday 28 July and is expected to be in this position until the end of Term 3. It is hoped that Mr Keenan will return to full-time duties commencing Term 4.

There is much happening over these next few weeks with the Theatre Restaurant, the College Athletics Carnival, District Athletics Carnival , Parent / Teacher Interviews and Catholic Education Week all occurring during these first 3 weeks of this current term.

Tonight is the last of the two evenings of ‘A Knight to Remember’. The students and staff have prepared well for a wonderful presentation for this magnificent Theatre Restaurant event. Congratulations to all concerned and particular thanks to the staff who have so professionally assisted the students with this presentation.

The Physical Education Department have also been undertaking preparations for the 2013 College and District Athletics Carnivals. Best wishes to the staff and House Captains for these events which encourage the students to dig deep in doing their best for their various Houses. Please encourage your children to attend and do their best, as these events are significant in building College culture.

Thank you to Mr Jahnke and the PE Department for the time they will place into preparations and running events prior the College carnival.

Semester reports will arrive shortly. I encourage parents to be involved in parent-teacher meetings in forthcoming weeks. Best outcomes are achieved when staff, parents and students work together.

It has been a pleasure returning to Innisfail and Good Counsel College. I thank the staff, students and parents for their continued support of Good Counsel and it has been wonderful catching up with past students who are now parents of current students.

Best wishes to the Good Counsel College community.

Gerard Simon
PRINCIPAL (acting)
