STUDENT FREE DAYS 27 APR 2011 11 APR 2011 31 OCT 2011 PUBLIC HOLIDAYS
It is with great pleasure and a sense of excitement that I commenced my duties as Principal of Catholic College Sale on st the 1 February, 2011. I feel very privileged to be appointed as Principal of a Catholic Secondary College with such strong foundations in the Marist and Sion charisms and tradition. It is very obvious that the community, staff and students are very proud of their College and my prayer would be to work towards enhancing the deep spiritual and educational tradition of the College.

The College Staff and students have been extremely welcoming and I feel very supported in my initial weeks as Principal and I know this support will continue into the future. I believe strongly that little is achieved in isolation and that the three pillars that support educational development are the student, the parent and the College working together to support spiritual, personal and academic growth and development in a caring and supportive environment. Our opening school Mass celebrated by Bishop Chris Prowse was a magnificent event that was inclusive of all students, parents and staff, who attended. Bishop Prowse‟s message reinforced that we are a Mission College here to serve all who seek our Catholic values and traditions. Student participation in our recent swimming sports for both the Sion and St Patrick‟s campuses was outstanding and while we acknowledge swimming skill and achievement it was great to see the support for all students who were willing to participate in all events on the days. I am looking forward to many years of serving our College community and providing appropriate leadership to ensure our students achieve their very best while developing a strong faith-filled character. It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Matt Hall (past student of the College) and as a community our

thoughts and prayers are with Vin and Ros (past staff members of the College) and their family. I congratulate our students in Years 7,8,10 and 11 who provided a respectful guard of honour for Matt. Newsletters will appear fortnightly and initially will be given to the youngest enrolled student in the family. A Child Of Mine I‟ll lend you a little while A child of mine, God said For you to love the while he lives And mourn for when he„s dead It may be six or seven years, Or forty-two or three But will you, till I call him back Take care of him for me? He‟ll bring his charms to gladden you And should his stay be brief, You‟ll have his lovely memories As a solace for your grief I cannot promise he will stay For all from earth returns But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I‟ve looked the whole world over In my search for teachers true And from all beings that crowd life‟s land I have chosen you Now, will you give him all your love Nor think the labor vain. Nor hate me when I come to take This lent child back again I fancied that I heard you say “Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joys Thy child will bring The risk of grief we‟ll run We will shelter him with tenderness We‟ll love him while we may And for the happiness we have now know Forever grateful stay.” But should the angels come for him Much sooner than we‟d planned, We‟ll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand
