After a very much needed and refreshing break, Term 2 has officially kicked off with a very busy start. On the first Tuesday we held our annual ANZAC Day service to commemorate the 380 students and staff who lost their lives during World War 1 and World War 2. The service was incredibly powerful, and included a beautiful rendition of ‘Close Now Thine Eyes’ written by old scholar Andrew Wells. It seemed fitting that this service was held in front of our own picturesque Memorial Hall, which is one of the largest war memorials in the country. One of the most impactful moments of the service was when the Years 11 and 12 students each planted a cross into the ground for each fallen soldier. The number of boys all standing by a planted cross offered a stark visualisation of the impact the two world wars had on our community.

Last Saturday, we had our annual Community day, or winter House sports day. This year, we changed the format a bit with all houses being based on Main Oval, and food being provided via a number of food trucks which lined the Avenues. I decided to play touch rugby this year with my House, Howard. I am extremely pleased to report that we won the senior touch rugby, narrowly defeating Hawkes House in the Grand final. The day was a huge success, and it was awesome being able to come together as a community.

We are very excited about the term ahead. Make sure to follow our Instagram page @saintscaptains to keep up to date.
