Senior School News

Last Tuesday, the Galen community witnessed a remarkable Year 12 farewell assembly. The students were joyous amid a festive and bubbly atmosphere, as they celebrated the culmination of their education with parents, friends, staff and students. Nathan and Mary’s poem was a treat, the performers were fabulous and Billy Sullivan’s media piece portrayed a simple but strong message for all to be friendly and inclusive. Awards were presented and many of the details of these are specifically written about under their curriculum areas in this newsletter. Nathan Whinray was a very worthy winner of the Religious Education Award for displaying care and concern for others in the community and participation in and contribution to liturgies and the retreat. Congratulations to all the award winners. Andrew Mair and Bridie Naughtin, Co- Captains of the College for 2013 did a wonderful job as MC’s.

Many of the Year 11 students doing a Unit 3/4 exam have been to see me to organize taking a study day the day before their exam. Any students in this category who have not done so yet, need to see Mr Grogan to discuss arrangements for this. Once in place they need to communicate the time which will be missed with their subject teachers.
