St Ignatius. Inspiring me to be a leader.

St Ignatius. Inspiring me to be a leader.

With the end of Term 3 coming to an end, school has been a very busy place for staff and students alike.

At the moment, the SRC is holding a ‘Coin Drive,’ where students are encouraged to bring in any silver coins they have lying around… especially 5 and 10 cent coins as they are gradually going out of use. The money raised from this will go towards supporting triUMPH, or in this year's case - triUMPH lite. All money raised will help support five East Timorese adults to become teachers.

Music students from all year levels recently had their vocal night on Monday the 5th of September at The Potato Shed. It was marvellous to see the wonderful talent of students from all across the school through solos, duets, senior and junior ensembles and the choir.

R U OK? Day also is this week. Activities across the day include a staff vs student dodgeball game, a Year 7 and start scavenger hunt, and a big focus on mental health with conversation starters scattered across the school.

Year 12 students and their teachers, as well as a few year 11’s, are finalising their last few sacs for the year and getting prepared for exams. With only 48 days until the English exam, stress levels are high. However, the excitement of graduation, celebration day, and Valedictory make it all worth it.

With only 6 more days of Term 3 to go, I wish everyone a safe and happy holidays!
