ST EUGENE FEAST DAY
Tuesday 16th May was our St Eugene Feast Day, with our theme of the day - God is Love: You are the Face of God! It was a wonderful celebration of both our Patron and our St Eugene College community.
We gathered together for Mass in Rodrigo Hall with Fr David, Fr Brian and visiting Fr John David from our brother school, Iona College. Our beautiful Eucharistic celebration was enhanced by embracing the talents within our College - music, dance and even a digitally creative ‘face of Jesus’ made up of every student’s photo.
The afternoon turned into a flurry of activity, with our whole College community engaged in exciting rotational activities, including Lip Sync Battles, Chalk Drawing, Capture the Flag, Obstacle Courses, Mandalas, Self-Portraits, Karaoke, Prayer Flags, Sign Language, Leadership Games and a highly competitive Scavenger Hunt around the school. It was truly amazing to see and hear the joy of children as they worked and played with other students across grades. It was an example of St Eu-gene College at its very best – with each student and staff member genuinely showing that they are, in fact, the face of God!
During Mass Father David issued an enthusiastic invitation to all the students and their families to join the parish celebrations of St Eugene’s Feast Day this Sunday 21 May at 9.30 am. This is another opportunity for connection within our community and I would strongly encourage families to make the effort this weekend.
PREP ENROLMENTS 2018
If you have a child who is due to start Prep in 2018, and they will turn 5 prior to 30th June 2018, please lodge your Application for Enrolment as soon as possible. Every child will receive an interview providing we have a completed and signed application form. A copy of your child's Birth Certificate is also required when lodging the form. Please do not assume that because you have other children at the College that your child is automatically accepted for Prep, or that we should know that you have other children at home. We need the application so that we can then contact you for an interview time.
2018 Prep Enrolment Interviews will be conducted on Wednesday 3rd May and Friday 12th May 2017. Applications can be found on the Parent Portal, College Website or you may come to the office to collect in person.
