Students begin 2016 school year

The 2016 school year commenced yesterday, with the College welcoming its new Year 7 students to the Wanniassa Campus.

The Isabella Campus was also in action as Years 10, 11, and 12 started the year smoothly, despite the campus having to deal with minor damage from the storms that swept through Tuggeranong in the last week of the holidays.

Today, students in Years 8 and 9 joined Year 7 at Wanniassa to start their first school day of 2016.

As usual, the first day involved students readjusting to school life after a long break over the summer.

To help families settle in, the College will hold a number of Information Sessions for parents in the coming weeks:

  • Monday 8 February, 5.30pm: Year 10 Parent Info Session at Isabella
  • Monday 8 February, 7pm: Year 11 Parent Info Session at Isabella
  • Tuesday 9 February, 7pm: Year 7 Parent Info Session at Wanniassa
  • Monday 15 February, 5.30pm: Year 8 Parent Info Session at Wanniassa
  • Monday 15 February, 7pm: Year 9 Parent Info Session at Wanniassa
  • Wednesday 17 February, 4pm onwards: Year 12 Interviews at Isabella

Major events for the beginning of Term 1 include the Swimming Carnival on 23 February, Opening Mass on 10 March, and Year 11 Retreat on 17 March.
