From the Principal
The beginning of our 2022 school year has been very different from previous years. As with all change, it involved a mixture of challenges and blessings. Students learning remotely have risen to that challenge and are eager to return to school in Week 3. Our Reception and Year 1 students have enjoyed having the Dunlevie Building to themselves as they settled into their new home. All in all, students, staff and families have responded with their usual flexibility and understanding, and we are grateful for your support.
The Leadership Team has particularly enjoyed welcoming our new Reception students to school each morning as we escort them from the Angas St gate to their classroom. We have watched them confidently navigate their first week of learning and embrace their daily routines with increasing independence. We look forward to watching them grow and flourish in the years ahead.
At the other end of their schooling journey are our Year 12 students who have completed their first fortnight of lessons. At this stage of their education they have identified their passions and are pursuing them with a strong sense of purpose. They will provide strong student leadership for the College in 2022.
Memorial services for Sr Janet Mead RSM took place at the College this week. Sr Janet has inspired many to follow her model of service and advocacy for the marginalised in Adelaide and beyond. The Adelaide Day Centre has allowed students from SAC to engage with their work over many years. This has given students and graduates an insight into how to create meaningful change in our world. We share with the Romero Community and the Sisters of Mercy in their sense of loss at this sad time.
