Year 7 Camps

Miss Potter and Mr McRandle enjoyed fine weather for their class camps in Dunedin. The student’s enjoyed the mixture of outdoor education challenges and visits to the Dunedin icons like the Cadbury Factory and the Otago Museum. Thank you to the staff and parent helpers who made the camp so enjoyable.

Sharing Champagnat's Vision

At the end of term three, Mr Miles and Mr Olsen were guests of the Marist Brothers at Adelaide’s Passionist Monastery. Twenty Australian and NZ teachers were invited to learn about their founder, St Marcellin Champagnat and the Marist unique teaching philosophy. The Marist charisms are reflected in our Verdon V8 values.
