I feel privileged to be able to lead such a fine College. St Columban’s has a rich tradition, dynamic and inclusive spirit, and a strong sense of community.
The Annual Charity Golf Day was a wonderful success. We could not have asked for better weather - it was superb and this really enhanced the golf prowess! We were thrilled with the participation of 26 Teams with our sponsors being SRJ Accountants and Business Advisors, Martin Jonkers Motors, Struddys Sports Morayfield, Loveday Electrical, Next Byte, Effective Airconditioning Services, Caboolture Herald, Suburban Pest Management and DKM Plumbing. With our Tourism students keen to support and sell tickets in all the games at different holes! The winners of the day were Bribie Island Coaches with a very fine round of 54. The committee consisting of Raechel Fletcher, Linda Upton, Jenny Butler, Toni Prickett, Roeland Weisfelt, Martin Jonkers, Brad Anderson, Damian Flint, Pat Greene excelled themselves with a profit of $16,000.00 being raised for our Mission Immersion Program. We are also grateful to our P and F parents who came along and worked so hard on the BBQ. It was a day of raising awareness, building StC community and digging deep into pockets for which we are so appreciative.
Congratulations to Tegan Lather Year 11, Wildlife Warrior for exceeding her fundraising goal of $100,000 in 18 months. Tegan gave herself 4 years to achieve this and accomplished it over two years ahead of schedule. Saturday saw 500 people attend her organised Zoo Run at the Bribie Island Wildlife Festival, well done Tegan!

Last weekend saw the Under 18 Qld Secondary Schools Rugby Championships in Townsville and we were thrilled that 5 of our boys were in the Sunshine Coast Regional side. Congratulations to coach Darren Crilly as the team won the Carnival and 2 of our players were chosen in the Combined Secondary Schools Team - James Green and Jordan Tupai-Lui with Elijah Kefu placed in the Chairman's team.

There are some special games coming up such as curtain raisers to the Reds next Friday afternoon at 5.30 pm (5 of our boys will play) - we will keep you posted!
The visit by Archbishop Mark Coleridge and Fr Wrex was very refreshing and every report was full of resounding praise given to all at the College by the Archbishop. The community enjoyed the interest Archbishop Coleridge took in all whom he met. The students in the Italian class loved the fact that he was fluent in Italian and had lots of answers for the interesting questions they had prepared! The Archbishop joined in the discussion in the Youth Ministry class around capital punishment and the Catholic rejection from an ethical point of view. Another highlight was the visit to Sion Hairdressing Salon – upon receiving a Sion hairdressing Gift Pack, Archbishop Coleridge remarked that in all his visits to many places that this gift was a first!!!
