COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
ST EUGENE FEAST DAY
Last week the college was involved in many activities and celebrations to honour St Eugene feast day and the 200th anniversary of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Congratulations to our RE team Alison Bates, Peter Ivers and Ali Whitton. Thanks also to the any teachers who gave up lunch breaks to work with groups on the numerous activities offered to students throughout the week.
Katie Gilbert and her film making students won the 'People's Choice' award in the 2016 QUT film competition! An amazing effort to produce such a stunning short film in only two weeks.
Some special staff gave of their time willingly and the students and Katie are extremely grateful. Thank you to, Mr Mel Salotto, Mr Tony Beadle and Mrs Kathy Burr.
The college is very proud of Katie and her team of young filmmakers and in particular the student leaders Zoe and Jermin who have juggled the demands of Year 12 studies and their leadership roles (amongst other commitments) to lead our team this year.
