• Anzac Memorial Centenary Project Soil Collection launched at Carillon

    29 March, 2017

    On Tuesday, 27 March All Saints' students Charlie O'Neill and Amber Stockman represented the college at the official launch of the Sydney Hyde Park War Memorial's Centenary Project Soil Collection Program at the Carillon in Bathurst.

    With All Saints' intimate connection to WWI and its commemoration through former alumni, it was a sacred occasion.

    The students conducted themselves with distinction and were fortunate to meet the local State Government Minister Paul Toole, and the State Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott, to mark the occasion.

    The Soil Collection Project is a State Government initiative to collect soil from 1699 sites throughout NSW from where men enlisted for duty.

    These samples will then be housed in a new commemorative pavilion in the Hyde Park War Memorial in Sydney.

    It was a poignant and spiritual ceremony which Charlie and Amber will remember with great fondness.

  • Boarders' Chapel by the River

    28 March, 2017

    On Sunday, 26 March, Father Paul Woodhart held our regular Sunday night chapel down by the Macquarie River near the Japanese garden and the “Pillars of Bathurst Memorial Garden”.

    It was a beautiful warm night and after a song, prayers and some readings by the boarders they all enjoyed a soft drink and some chocolate chip cookies and cake kindly baked and supplied by Father Paul.

    Thank you to Mr Steven O’Connor for joining us and to Mr Brad Allen for suggesting the outdoor service before it gets too cold and too dark.

    David Hitchick and I were also in attendance. It was a lovely way to spend our second last service for this term.

    Mr O’Connor got the students to walk around the commemorative garden to see if they recognised any names that were connected to All Saints’. There was a plaque for C.E.W.Bean, Anzac Legend.

  • Marden Fancy Dress Night

    Harriett and Eliza.

    Allison Welsh (Assistant Head of House) was on duty on Friday, 25 March.

    She supplied the junior girls with a boxful of accessories, including coloured paper, newspaper, streamers etc and suggested they dress up and make “costumes”.

    She followed up with a fashion parade after they had dressed up.

    The girls had a great time devising some fancy outfits and here are some of the Year 7’s and 8’s in their designs.

  • Students experience multiculturalism first hand

    23 March, 2017

    On Wednesday, 22 March Year 10 travelled to the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta as part of their studies of “Changing Australian Communities” in Australian Geography and “Migration History” in Australian History.

    The fieldwork trip enabled students to experience Australia’s multiculturalism and in particular Cabramatta’s dynamic Vietnamese business community, first hand.

    Students were given specific worksheets to complete in relation to a 10% Geography assessment task on “Changing Australian Communities”.

    The Year 10’s benefited greatly from this enrichment opportunity. I would like to congratulate them all for their good behaviour and enthusiasm on the day.

    The lunch in Vietnamese restaurants and the visit to the Tien Hau Buddhist Temple were particular highlights of the excursion. Students also enjoyed a selection of traditional Asian fruits for afternoon tea.

    I would like to thank Mrs McAllister, Mrs Lacey, Mr Cant and Mr Feebrey for their help and support on what was a very enjoyable and educationally worthwhile day.
