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.

Last Friday night the College hosted the farewell for our Japanese exchange students and their host families. It was a lovely evening where the boys spoke for a couple of minutes in English and taught us something of Japanese food and games. At the whole College assembly, one of the teachers, Masafumi Tomikawa, (Tommy) gave a very moving speech. He has given us permission to share it with the school community. It demonstrates one of the reasons why these exchanges are so important.
I am thrilled to be able to let you know that last Saturday night, Daniel O’Brien in Year 12 won the School-based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year award at the North Coast Regional Final of the Qld Training Awards.
