2017 College News / Events

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

A significant number of our Year 9s have just completed the final stages of Peer Support training and
were most inspiring in their application and maturity in preparing to guide the Year 7s of 2018 in their
orientation to the College. The positive impact of Peer Support cannot be understated in its significance
in supporting over 200 recent primary school students from various size schools and contexts in settling
into high school. Ensuring that the Year 7 Class of 2018 is settled and understands why “This is
Aquinas” and the “way [and why] we do things @ Aquinas” is crucial in nurturing our community. Even
more impressively for the Year 9s is the simple mathematical imperative that will see only around half of
them are able to actually take on the leadership of a Year 7 Peer Support Group. The ability to
comprehend and recognise that every endeavour embarked on won’t always end in the unqualified
success that we hope for is a key ingredient in developing a critical sense of self and developing
resilience that will hold our students in good stead long after Peer Support, final exams and their time @
Aquinas. I would also like to thank Ms Wilson, Mrs Wells, and Mrs Dickinson for their roles in the Peer
Support program.
We also received more exciting news from the Convenor of the NSWCCC sporting organisation who has
informed us that James Roumanos [Year 12, Rugby League] and Ethan Stacey [Year 10, Baseball] have
received the prestigious Blue Award for outstanding sporting excellence in 2017. These awards are
limited in number and to receive a nomination is merit worthy benchmark and to actually receive the
award is testament to commitment in training, preparation, risking failure and all round involvement in
school life. Congratulations James and Ethan.
