Kia ora koutou

It has been an amazing term and we have achieved so many great things together that we can all be really proud of. Our congratulations to all those students honoured at our Colours Assembly for their academic, sporting and cultural achievements.  Your efforts and hard work are a great example of what it means to be a Verdon College student and the acknowledgement of your success is thoroughly deserved.

Our end of term has finished well with our hosting of Rockhampton Grammar netball teams from Australia. A  highlight of their trip is being hosted by our families and I want to thank those that billeted these students and looked after them so well.  I would like to congratulate all students that represented the College at the Catholic schools tournament. This tournament is a great way to get together as a larger Catholic family and forge those links between our school and students.  My thanks to all those staff and parents that assisted in the delivery of this opportunity for our students.

We are looking forward to a very exciting term two with preparation for year 7 camps and our Production underway.  We are looking forward to holding the Production in our upgraded school hall with new lighting and sound installed for the beginning of the new term. Thanks again to our PTA for your support of this ongoing project. Our PTA are running their annual ‘Surf n Turf’ fundraiser and would ask that all students and families support this effort as the funds raised go towards contributing to so many of the extras that support our students success.

Enjoy the holidays and the well earned break.

God Bless
