Our motto, ‘Virtue Conquers’, reminds the members of our community that we attain real success by working hard and staying true to ourselves while respecting others. Last week, we recognised several virtuous student achievements from Term 3 during a special assembly on Wednesday, 12 October. It was also the final assembly of this kind our Year 12 students would attend before they finish one week later.

Catherine McAuley Excellence Awards

Twenty-nine students received Virtue Conquers Achievement Awards across bronze, silver, and gold categories. I hope they wear their badges with pride.

We congratulated our Principal’s Award winners, too. These young men and women represent the best in their year level. Well done and thank you for inspiring your classmates and all of us with your dedication, generosity, and role model behaviour.

Abbey Cummings was crowned Term 3’s ‘Unsung Hero’. This special award recognises honesty, integrity, sacrifice, and service and even comes with its own costume. I’m happy to report that we had some excellent honourable mentions in this category, too. I know that we will see more great things from these fine female leaders in the future.

Congratulations to all our award winners, especially Year 12 students Anna Joseph, Skye Kempton, and Caterina De Maria. These young women have achieved every college accolade and represent our college admirably in the wider community.

In Melbourne, Sebastian Pollifrone won first place in the 18–20 Boys High Jump at the SSV Secondary Track & Field Championships on 17/10. Sebastian cleared a height of 1.85 metres! –Astounding skill.

Back closer to home at the Show, our very own Adelle Bott (Year 7) won multiple prizes for her baked goods in the 10–13 year category. Both her bee-themed cake and cupcakes earned her first place ribbons. Adelle had only worked with fondant once before and made the bees herself. She should be very proud of her talent.

As I write this, tomorrow will be the final day for the Class of 2022. The college has quite a day planned for them. (More about their send-off next week.) I wish them the best of luck as they continue their exam revisions.

God bless.
