Principal’s News

July 25, 2018

Dear O’Loughlin Community,
Well done to the MULAN JNR cast and crew on their incredible performances! Running from Wednesday to Saturday night, the Musical dazzled and amazed audiences and we are all immensely proud of the students, staff and parents involved. It was so wonderful to witness the collegial spirit and strong connections made between all the cast and crew, something they will remember forever. I know that my daughter feels so fortunate to have had this opportunity.

The efforts by all staff involved were quite unbelievable and I commend and thank them. To Ms Green, Ms Johnson, Ms Orian, Miss Schembri, Miss Handberg, Ms Lahy, Ms Martin, Mr Jack, Ms Colquhuon (Coach) and Miss Hives, from all of us - THANK YOU!

A message in our College Assemblies has been that great things will happen if we put in great effort, if we have a go, if we have a ‘crack at it’! The students and staff involved in MULAN JNR had a real GO and something really great happened. There have been many activities and examples of this approach throughout College life and we are all benefitting, and an even more positive culture is building at O’Loughlin.

One half of our Year 9 students have headed off to take on the challenges of camp at Umbrawarra Gorge. This is an excellent camp and I am looking forward to hearing the stories of adventure when they return.
The second half of our Year 9 students go next week.

Senior School Information Evenings are coming up! These are important information sessions and I look forward to seeing you there and discussing your child’s future subjects and pathways. Our Senior School offers every subject required to enter University, VET/TAFE or an Apprentice/work pathway. Please see the notice in this newsletter for dates and times.

It is an exciting term - the vital third term. The time is now for us all to ensure that we are prepared, driven and ready for the challenges so that we will be able to achieve to our potential. There are many great things happening, the main focus is to keep it going.

All the best.
Rhett Bowden
