ST EUGENE FEAST DAY
On Monday 21st May, we have our annual St Eugene Feast Day festivities!! Our theme for 2018 is HOPE. All students are to wear sports uniform on Monday 21st May for St Eugene Feast Day. This will allow students to actively participate in the afternoon activities. St Eugene was undoubtedly a person of hope! We will weave this theme throughout our Feast Day, particularly exploring how St Eugene used the power of words to bring hope.
On Monday, ‘St Eugene Snags’ will be available at first break – for catering purposes students were asked to pre-order their sausage in bread by Wednesday 16th May. At 11.30am we will celebrate a whole College Feast Day Mass in Rodrigo Hall with Fr David and invited guests. Parents are, of course, welcome to join us. After an extended lunchbreak, students will meet up with buddy classes from across the College for an afternoon of fun learning activities, including art, outdoor games, scavenger hunt, puppetry, music, sign language and more! It’s celebrations like this, when our whole Prep-Year 12 family comes together, that make our College so special… We are Oblates. We are part of the St Eugene story. We are people of hope!
NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME
Will be held on Wednesday 23rd May at 11:30am in Rodrigo Hall. This is the one day of the year when the chosen book (this year it is “Hickory Dickory Dash” by Tony Wilson) is read simultaneously on the same date and time in children’s libraries around Australia. Staff and students will re-enact the story about a mother mouse trying to rescue her babies from the big, bad cat. All school family members are welcome to join in the fun in the Hall.

Students have been rehearsing for over 9 hours a week this term to prepare for what is shaping up to be an incredible performance. We have cheer routines, incredible vocal numbers, hip hop and cabaret dances, a drumline feature, a leprechaun, Elmo and much much more to dazzle you. As always we thank the wonderful support from staff, parents and the wider community – it is certainly no small task to accomplish such a performance. Don’t forget to grab your tickets online today!
