This is an area of the school that has been re-imagined and significantly resourced in recent times with a view towards providing an enhanced profile and opportunities for all members of our College community. Under the guidance of Mr Craig Dowsett and adopting the title of M68, this new team will assume

Share the Journey Walk ‘n’ Talk Spend some quality time with your son – take a walk with him and Share the Journey. CBC Fremantle Parent Council invites dads and their sons to come to Point Walter on Sunday 7 April 2013 at 10am to share a unique adventure that will last approximately three hours. All you need to do is put on your walking shoes, hat and sunscreen and bring a water bottle. This is a special event for fathers and their sons to enjoy a relaxed walk, explore some local history and to generally have a chat together about a range of issues, including your family’s history. A free sausage sizzle will conclude the event. Members of the College Leadership together with several senior students, will join fathers and sons. A pre-event meeting will be held on Thursday 4 April at 7.30pm in the College’s Arts Learning Centre to brief fathers about the walk. Light refreshments will be provided. Please advise of your attendance to the pre-event meeting and to the walk by emailing parentcouncil@ cbcfremantle.wa.edu.au.

A key component of the culture of any Catholic School is that it gathers together for prayer and worship. Last week we witnessed how wonderful this can be as more than 1,700 people gathered in the College Cloisters for our Opening Mass. This week we had a smaller gathering when 200 students and staff gathered for our first Thursday morning Mass. As a College we mark major events with major celebrations, however we mark the passing of each week, and indeed each day and each lesson by remembering God’s part in our lives and the blessings he affords us. To come together on a weekly basis to celebrate Eucharist is a powerful sign to the world and to each other that by gathering we are nourished by God’s Word and nourished through receiving our Lord in the Eucharist.

ICT Departme After a busy start to the year, all laptops have now been distributed to the students. CBC is now a true 1:1 campus with every boy from Years 7 to 12 having their own laptop. The College now has a very large, sophisticated ICT infrastructure that is quite complex even when compared to some businesses in the Corporate Sector. Every computer was re-imaged during the holidays so all software should be updated and running

Parents and Friends Federation of Western Australia As a parent of a child in this school, your voice is important in the upcoming State Election. Here’s Why… With the upcoming state election, the Parents and Friends Federation of Western Australia Inc. would like to take this opportunity to highlight the importance of grass-roots parent advocacy to effect change at the political level. The Federation was formed in 1954 with the principle aim of advocating for financial support from governments for Catholic schools. In 1965, after years of sustained effort and advocacy by the dedicated members of the PFFWA Council, “the Brand government Liberal-Country Party Government legislated to provide in WA the first per-pupil recurrent operating funds anywhere in Australia for children in non-Government schools.” [i] The PFFWA was the first parent organisation in Australia to win this funding for children in Catholic and Independent schools and have continued to advocate on behalf of parents since that time. It is still as important today as it was then to continue to push for funding equity at the grass-roots level - parents = voters. Whilst we appreciate the recently received $15m Low Interest Loan Scheme (LILS) funding for capital works in our schools from the Barnett government, the reality is that it has not increased since 1998, yet the cost of building new schools to provide choice and accessibility for families and the maintenance of existing schools to keep abreast of curriculum and technology needs has increased significantly. It is important that you ensure your sitting member of Parliament and the prospective candidates in your electorate, know of your concern for the failure of state government to increase funding for Catholic school capital development. The Federation has continued to advocate on behalf of parents of children in Catholic schools, maintaining a strong record of representation, advocacy and service through its independent voice. We hope that Catholic schools are provided with the continued funding and certainty to provide the exceptional education our children receive and the PFFWA will endeavour to ensure that the voice of parents is heard at all levels of government. Please contact the PFFWA office on 9271 5909 if you have any questions. Shelley Hill PFFWA Executive Officer [i] [p61, Struggle & Achievement: a history of the Parents and Friends’ Federation of Western Australia Inc. (1954-2004), Dr Hal GP Colebatch]
