With Term 1 coming to a close, it is a time to reflect on what made the start of another St Edmund’s year so fulfilling. New leaders were inducted, school camps were thoroughly enjoyed, and some especially brave seniors took the plunge off the 10 metre diving board at the swimming carnival. Term 1 was also highlighted by the College’s academic exploits, with 12 students receiving Academic Gold Awards. A Gold Award is the most prestigious award for hard work and achievement in the classroom, and we take great pride in acknowledging the students that have achieved this.
The College is also very thankful for the work of Mr Monagle, Ms Cusack and the entire team that is facilitating Eddies’ charity contributions to Caritas. Without them and their work, the hundreds of dollars raised by St Edmund’s would not be providing aid for those who need it around the world.
Winter sports are now also starting up, with training sessions in all age groups across all sports commencing. The College takes great pride in thoroughly preparing students to take the field with skill, determination and respect. St Edmund’s has a rich winter sporting history, and this legacy can only be continued by putting in hard work and making sacrifices to achieve goals. Remember boys, hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
