Congratulations to our Award Recipients
Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends,
Last night we celebrated the outstanding achievements of students from Years 7 to 12 for their academic excellence and service to the College in 2018. On Tuesday we celebrated the gifts and talents of students from Years 7 to 12 for their sporting and cultural contributions throughout the year. Both evenings were wonderful occasions to acknowledge the fruits of their hard work, commitment and passion to achieve at the highest level. Congratulations to all who received awards over the two nights.
Last night was also an opportunity to reflect on the 2018 school year and highlight the people, events and initiatives that have made this year so memorable. We started the year with our Strategic Directions and Priorities which has enabled us to set a course for the next three years. In this, we named Identity, Improvement and Community as our focus areas and around each of these we articulated goals and aspirations for the year ahead.
Looking back it has certainly been a year of opportunity and challenge as we have journeyed together to enrich the lives of the young Eddies’ men in our care. Our Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) Touchstones have kept us on the true path and we continue to draw inspiration by the life of Blessed Edmund Rice who taught us that through Jesus our unfolding story will flourish.
Each day I am humbled by the dedication of the staff at Eddies to carry on this legacy. Their work in partnership with our families is what makes our College a place where our students can shine.
