    Cross Country Update

    The Wolfpack continues to grow as the events on offer increase and the weather improves. We have a number of projects and events occurring at present. The SICG Camino de Australia has been a focal point for the College over the last fortnight. The aim of the Camino is to encourage our community to become more active and is framed by the challenge of walking/running around Australia! All members of our community are able to register to help us collectively walk/run around Australia (18,500km).

    Staff, students and family members are encouraged to run with the Wolfpack at any of our monthly runs (weekends). This Saturday we are meeting up in Geelong to participate in the Balyang Park Run (5km fun run). For further details, see Xuno or email Mr. Brendan Nicholls.

    Camino – Week 1 Wrap Up
    Our Camino is one week old and our progress has been amazing! When we were developing the idea we projected that the end date would be somewhere around the end of 2020. This week we have together added a further 517km to our tally since the first blog entry on the 3rd of September. Our total currently is 918km.

    We have travelled from Saint Ignatius to almost the Victoria-New South Wales border. Along the way we have 'visited' St Patrick's Cathedral, Xavier College (Kew), Portsea, Wilsons Promontory and Lakes Entrance.

    We are currently just passing through Gipsy Point (not far from Mallacoota) and will cross the border in the next day or so. Our current location is spectacular.
    ​Moving through the foothills of the high country we are surrounded by national and state parks, the region truly is beautiful and worth a visit.

    As noted the progress to date has been much more than expected and because of this a side project is still in completion. Over the next few weeks we will receive a welcome from each of the schools we are (or have) visited. It's hoped that these messages inspire us on our journey, tell us a little more about the other Jesuit and Ignatian companion schools across the country and strengthen our connections.

    All the best over the coming week. Thank you for your participation. By the time the next post goes up we should be visiting Parliament House in Canberra!
