24 June 2022

The temperature may have dropped, but the energy levels remained high in Catholic schools across Melbourne during Term 2.

It’s been a time of celebrations as schools officially opened new facilities at Christ the King School, Newcomb, Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School, Sunbury, St Anthony’s School, Melton South, St Fidelis’ School, Moreland, St Mary’s School, St Kilda East, and St Paul’s School, Bentleigh. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held at Sacred Heart School, Oakleigh, and St Richard’s Primary School, Kilsyth, in preparation for new developments, while concrete slabs were poured at the Cobblebank Campus of Catholic Regional College, Melton, and Mary Queen of Heaven Primary School, Greenvale, to get the buildings constructed in time for the beginning of the 2023 school year.

The ‘meet the teacher’ video series continued in Term 2, with teachers reflecting on their special role in Catholic school communities. The series will be continuing into Term 3. Schools also celebrated their artistic pursuits, with St Monica’s College, Epping, staging a production of Chicago (High School Edition) and St Roch’s School, Glen Iris, putting on a winter-themed art exhibition. At St Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School, Lynbrook, a student-initiated project to bake and sell biscuits quickly raised over $3000 for the people of Ukraine.

In the lead-up to National Reconciliation Week, the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria Ltd (CECV) launched the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Action Plan at St Kevin’s College, Toorak. Schools across the Archdiocese recognised the week’s theme, Be Brave. Make Change, with events in their local communities, including students from St John’s School, Mitcham, who began with a liturgy before raising awareness in their local neighbourhood.
