It’s great to be back at the College for Term 3. The holiday break provided an opportunity for me to recharge and spend time with family and friends. Whilst OLMC remained as it always does, top of mind, it was a time of rejuvenation and recreation, allowing me to return to work feeling invigorated and ready to begin again. I hope you also were able to take time to relax and spend quality time with your daughters in an ‘out of school’ way.
During the break, our College Leadership Team participated in a workshop facilitated by RodMatthews, Leadership Coach where we looked at innovative ways of working and leading together with a view to always looking to the future of education and the place of OLMC in this. We are fortunate to have a College Leadership Team who individually are expert in the field they lead and collectively are second-to-none at placing student achievement, wellbeing and excellence at the core of all decisions we make.
Like countless Australians, I have been following the Matildas in the lead-up to and the start of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. I am absolutely awe-struck by the positivity and determination of the players. Their unwavering spirit, teamwork and never-give-up attitude is leaving a lasting impression on me. Coming from a family of avid male soccer players, to see the women’s game take its rightful place in the hearts and minds of Australians is a wonderful and long overdue achievement.
This incredible display of sportsmanship and camaraderie reminds me of our own students. Mercy Girls consistently show us their resilience, empathy and eagerness to support one another. It is heartwarming to witness the Mercy values of compassion and community in action. As a Principal, I couldn't be prouder of our students and the bright futures they are building together.
We continue to foster this culture of positivity and support in all we do; cheering on our students as they pursue their passions and make a positive impact on the world around them. Together, we can achieve great things and make a difference in the lives of others.
As we embark on this busy term, I would like to recognise our Year 12 students. This term marks the final leg of their school day journey at the College. Next week, they begin their HSC Trial examinations in preparation for their HSC. I have full confidence in their abilities and the exceptional support provided by our teachers and staff. Let's rally behind them, cheer them on and offer our unwavering encouragement as they strive for excellence in this crucial phase of their lives.
Despite the hectic schedules that lie ahead, we approach this term with a light and happy heart, to cherish the moments of joy, celebrate our achievements and overcome challenges as a united College community. Together, we can create an atmosphere of positivity and enthusiasm that will carry us through this term and beyond.
