🎄 Christmas Bauble Dash 🎄
Helping raise funds for 'Days for Girls'
On Monday, the Convent Lawn was covered in Christmas cheer (and sparkles and baubles!) as part of our Interact fundraising event – the Bauble Dash. Students collected baubles and then, for a $2 donation, were able to trade the baubles for a range of prizes. We are immensely proud to direct all funds raised to 🌷 Days for Girls 🌷, an organisation that provides health solutions to girls who would otherwise miss school during their periods.

MSM Library
📚 Holiday Reading Promotion 📚
The long, summer holidays are almost upon us, so it’s time to stock up on lots of lovely books to read over the Christmas break. Students can borrow up to ten items which won’t need to be returned until February 1. 
If you want the added bonus of an extra present to open on Christmas morning then perhaps we can tempt you with one of the wrapped books which can be found under the display screen in the library.
Don’t forget that Wheelers is open 24/7 for all your eBook and audiobook needs as well.
Happy reading and happy holidays!
From the Library Team!

Parents are reminded, for the safety of everyone, to DROP students off in the LOADING ZONE area outside the Ionian Centre and avoid areas marked with yellow lines which is against road safety rules.
This is dangerous as it blocks other driver’s visibility and obstructs cars from moving around.
Onsite parking in the College grounds; Grantuly, undercover in the Ionian Centre and within the campus near the Sophia Centre is only permitted for staff. In consideration of our neighbours, please refrain from parking across driveways, adhere to the 40 km speed limit and be considerate of those living around the College when dropping and picking up students. Please do not drop off or pick up students within the College grounds.

In consideration for our neighbours, where possible please avoid leaving your motor running, especially when parked outside a home.
