                                   I was pleased to be able to visit the
                                   four Year 12 retreat sites last week
                                   and to meet many students in a
                                   relaxed setting. Miss Carol Young,
                                   our Campus Minister, Mrs Nowak,
                                   Mr Callus and Mr Farrell did a fine
                                   job of developing programs to
                                   engage our students in reflecting
                                   on the life journey – a spiritual

                                   The staff members who attended
                                   were highly engaged in the
                                   process of leading their small
                                   groups through an excellent process. The feedback from the students has been extremely
                                   positive. We are indeed fortunate in Catholic schools, where unapologetically, “God is part of the
                                   conversation”. The opportunities for our students to discern and ponder their spiritual journeys
                                   can only assist us in producing fine young people.

                                   My special thanks to Mr Budas, Dean of Year 12, for his timeless work in ensuring all students
                                   and staff were well informed and catered for during the retreats.

                                   I wish all of our families a restful, safe and faith-filled Easter break among loved ones.

                                   Best wishes and God bless

 The greatest and the most important feast in the Church is Easter, and there
 are several reasons why Easter is the greatest and most important feast in the
 The first reason we have for celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, which is the
 fact that we celebrate at Easter, is that Easter, the resurrection, is the basis of
 our Christian faith. St Paul reminds us that “If Christ has not been raised, then
 our preaching is in vain; and your faith is in vain… and if Christ has not been
                                                                                       Youth M ission teaM
 raised, then your faith is a delusion and you are still lost in your sins… But in
 fact, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have
 fallen asleep” (1 Cor 15: 14,7,20).
 So, the first reason for the importance of celebrating the feast of the                 Holiday Camp
 Resurrection of Jesus is that it is the basis of our faith.                             For Years 9-12
 The second reason for celebrating the feast of the Resurrection, Easter, is that
 this resurrection is a guarantee of our own resurrection. Jesus assured Martha           Bullsbrook
 at the tomb of Lazarus: “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes            14 - 16 April
 in me will live even though he dies” (Jn 11:25-26). Christ will raise us up “on
 the last day”; but it is also true that, in a certain way, we have already risen
 with Christ. With the Holy Spirit within us, we experience a participation in           There will be games, talks, lots

                                                                                                   9202 6848 or

 will be mindful of the greeting of Jesus in his post-resurrection appearances
 and his salutation to his disciples, “Peace be with you.” In the midst of the
 boredoms and tension of everyday life, the awareness of Jesus’ presence will
 give us a sense of peace and joy.                                                             www.ymt.com.au
 If we really believe in the presence of the resurrected Jesus in our lives,
 then the peace that this brings will shine forth in our lives of love, mercy,
 compassion and the spirit of self-sacrificing service of the risen Jesus living
 in our hearts. The feast gives us a sense of hope and encouragement in this
 world that, at times, is a world of pain, sorrows and tears.
 A third reason for celebrating the feast of the Resurrection is our belief
 in the real presence of the risen Jesus in our hearts, in our families, in our
 communities and in our churches.
 This awareness of the presence of the risen Lord, in and around us, and the
 strong conviction of our own resurrection, help us to control our thoughts,
 desires, words and behaviour. This awareness inspires us to honour our
 bodies, keeping them free from evil habits and addictions. Our awareness
 of the presence of the risen Lord in our neighbours should encourage us to
 respect them and give to them humble and self-giving service.
 Each time we fail in our attempts to ward off temptation, but keep on trying
 to overcome them, we share in the resurrection. Each time that we continue
 to hope—even as our hope is smashed to pieces—we share in the power of
 Jesus’ resurrection.
 Easter says to us neither pain, sin , rejection, not death, can destroy us
 because Jesus has conquered all these and we too can conquer them if we
 put our faith in Him.

   God love you.

This term as part of their Plane Geometry task, the Design 1C (Years 11/12) students designed and made their own warrior
helmets, inspired by those worn by the ancient Spartan warriors. The activity involved the students using the computer
drawing program AutoCAD to alter the existing Spartan model (or, in some cases, totally design their own from scratch) to
build their own custom-made helmet.

The models are on display in the Library for all staff and students to see.

Young vinnies easter aCtivitY
On Wednesday 31 March four students were taken to deliver Easter Eggs, fluffy toys and food to the following venues:
Shopfront in Maylands - a drop-in centre for the homeless and disadvantaged. The Easter Eggs, and in particular the takeaway
food was so gratefully received. Brother Peter Negus, the Director of Shopfront gave the students a tour of the facility and told
them that warm clothes (male & female), blankets, shoes, towels etc. were also needed. If families have any of these items at
home and wish to send them to sick bay we will make sure they are taken to Shopfront.
Princess Margaret Hospital Oncology Ward and Ronald McDonald House - The Easter Eggs and fluffy toys brought such joy to
the faces of the youngsters who are undergoing therapy for cancer.
Little Sisters of the Poor Nursing Facility in Glendalough - Sister Elizabeth welcomed us at the nursing home and assured us
that the Easter Eggs would be welcomed by the elderly residents.
Silver Chain - collected a large box of Easter Eggs to distribute to elderly patients they visit.
On Thursday 1 April a group of eight students visited Mercyville and Trinity Village Nursing Homes to deliver Easter Eggs and
cards made by our group. The residents were so happy to see our students and enjoyed receiving their gifts. There was an
Easter Bonnet Parade at Trinity with the elderly showing off the hats they had made whilst enjoying morning tea.
Many thanks to the Year 10 Students and the College staff who donated the Easter Eggs and to Vinnies members for the fluffy
toys. Your kindness and generosity brought much joy and happiness to all who received the Easter gifts.
The Year 12 Food Science and Technology students have spent the best part of Term One planning and preparing an Easter
morning tea for the residents of Trinity Village Nursing Home. On Holy Thursday, six Year 12 students and Mrs Ottaway travelled
to Trinity Village armed with a selection of fabulous treat. The girls poured cups of tea, served food and had a wonderful chat
to the residents who were very appreciative of not only the food, but of the company and enthusiasm of the students.

Due to the bad weather conditions the Final’s games were hugely interrupted. Games against JohnXXIII College did not
take place. This has affected our final placings but nevertheless our teams achieved a great outcome overall. We would like

teams that won premierships as follows:
