"Show Some Ticka"
Dear Members of the St Edmund’s Community,
The average heart beats at between 60 and 100 beats per minute. This constant beat exists in all of us and reminds us that we are all linked. Excitement draws a faster beat and meditation slows it to a crawl, but it beats on each day. We send heart emojis to show love, we know people have courageous hearts and if we are true to ourselves we follow our hearts. The heart is a symbol of love, the seat of courage, a place of resilience, loyalty and commitment.
Our senior cohort or 2020 have chosen to reflect their leadership in the theme “Show Some Ticka”. With their logo of a wolf in silhouette on a heart they show the best of an Eddies man: our sporting teams who battle in competitions of skill, showing courage and resilience, our “support mob” — heard for hundreds of metres — who loyally cheer for the Blue and White, our musicians whose commitment shines through at every performance. These moments where our young men “Show Some Ticka” are those that make a difference. Our heart, however, is also one of love, for family, school and community and this is what makes the Eddies difference.
Congratulations to our AIC Swimming team. The AIC Swimming Championships were held at a twilight carnival on Monday. Our young men showed their ‘ticka’ representing the College ably and courageously. In a competition where times were at elite standard, our Eddies’ men competed to the end and we are proud of their efforts. Well done gentlemen. Thank you to Ms Natalie Henness for coordinating, Mr Simon Smith and Mr Anthony Cronan for coaching the team and all the staff involved for their support of our young men.
Performing Arts Evening
Musically, our young men showed their talent on Wednesday evening. Both St Mary’s and St Edmund’s students performed, and the night was a showcase of the fantastic musical abilities of our students. Our boys showed Eddies ‘ticka’ through their dedication to developing their skills to such a high level. Thank you to Mr Tim Kirkwood for organising and coordinating the event and to Mr Chris Barton for supporting the evening with sound and lighting.
This is an ongoing and evolving situation. At present we have no concerns at the College with respect to our day-to-day routine and I will continue to send updates as they become available from Queensland Health. If students become ill or show symptoms they should remain at home and a doctor should be consulted. (Please refer to the attachment)
