Waste Wise School
Congratulations to our wonderful primary campus for being an accredited Waste Wise School for the second year in a row. This means we are working towards a sustainable future with lots of learning and implementing of sustainable practices such as our waste management. We are lucky enough to have received a recent grant which has allowed us to purchase a small dishwasher for our canteen. Stay tuned for a cleaner canteen, we can’t wait to see what our talented canteen staff manage to whip up!
Ms Shannon O'Connor Teacher - Primary
An incredible turnout for our inaugural Youth Mass on Sunday 5.00pm saw our young people of Broome celebrate their faith through the generous sharing of their talents. Our young people undertook the various ministries throughout the Mass and joined together afterwards to get to know each other and future plan. Fr Liam Ryan, who recently was involved in saving a surfer in Perth from a shark attack, spoke during the homily, encouraging the young to be a voice in our Church. Stay tuned for details of our second Mass and activity where all are invited to join together to explore and celebrate what it means to be a young person in our Parish today.
Year 11 - Religious Education Retreat
On Monday the 17th of August the Year 11 cohort went to the Sisters of St John of God Heritage Centre for their Retreat day. The theme of the retreat was leadership and the image that was used for the day was of “Jesus the Good Shepherd.” The day was spent unpacking what it was like to have resilience, value our own self worth and to consider the qualities of leadership that we may have in our life. With Christ as a guide on how to lead, the students were challenged to be an authentic and true leader as they head into the last part of the year and going into next year as Year 12 students.
Year 12 - Religious Education Retreat
On Friday the 14th of August the Year 12 class had their day retreat at the Mangrove Hotel conference rooms. The day was titled “God’s Friendship”. The retreat led the students to reflect on their qualities and the qualities of people in their lives and the ways that we can recognise and celebrate real and authentic relationships with others. There was space for reflection and sharing about what friendship is and how we can build stronger relationships. Students also reflected on the stories of Jesus and how he related with others in his life. After sharing a wonderful lunch cooked by the Mangrove staff, the students discovered and reflected on the masks that they wear in their life. They created masks for themselves which represented the positive and negative masks they wear in their life. The closing mass was at the Our Lady Queen of Peace Cathedral where the masks were brought up in the offertory during the celebration of the Eucharist. The day was a great success and the students had some time to reflect during a busy and challenging year.
House Athletics Carnival @ Secondary
Our Athletics House Carnival was held on Wednesday 19th August, with perfect conditions for the athletes to perform and showcase their talents. The format of the carnival was changed this year allowing all students to enter any event they wished, with no number of competitors capped for each event. The result of this saw record number of students participating and a very fun and relaxed vibe across the day. This year also saw the introduction of timing gates for recording the track events for improved and accurate times which was received very well by the athletes. Several records were broken during the day and a list of these are below. It was also great to see a huge amount of parent support on the day and the students really appreciated having their families and friends to spectate and cheer them on in their events.
