Opening of The School Year Mass
On Sunday 9th of February, many from the school community attended mass to celebrate the Opening of the School Year. During the homily Fr Ralph highlighted our theme for the year, 'Called to Action'. This is a reminder that while it is important to look after ourselves, as Christians, we also need to be there for others and be 'salt of the earth and light of the world'. This is not always an easy task but there are many ways in which we can reach out and assist others. This may involve using our talents and strengths at school, work, home and in the community. Sometimes it may only be a simple or ordinary act that makes a difference to the life of another. We constantly challenge the students at school to think about how they can reach out to others. It is also important for us to demonstrate and discuss with with them what this means. Leadership Badges Distributed At last week's assembly Fr Ralph attended to bless the  2020 Student Leadership badges. These were then distributed to our Year 6 leaders. We are very proud of all our 2020 leaders and we know they will do a wonderful job. It has been particularly pleasing to see these students looking after the younger students in the school. Congratulations to all Year 6 leaders and we wish you all the best for 2020.

5/6 Camp at Ace-Hi Range
Last week saw our Years 5 and 6 students venture to Ace-Hi Ranch on the Mornington Peninsula where they spent three days on camp. During this time students participated in a number of activities such as horse riding, rock climbing, giant swing, initiative courses and flying fox to name just a few. It was great to see students challenge themselves and move out of their comfort zone. The way students supported each other throughout the camp was also impressive. The benefit of having camp at the start of the year is that it gives all involved a chance to get to know each other and build stronger relationships. A big thanks to Mr De Leo, Miss Collins and Miss Mangone for organising and attending the camp as well as caring for all of our students. We also thank Fr Ralph and Fr Pat for attending on the Monday and celebrating mass with the group. Once again they contributed to making our camp a special one. Please see the photos attached below.

New Enrolment Policy for Emmaus College – effective for year 7 2022
Emmaus College has amended its Enrolment Policy after consultation with its Canonical Administrators, Regional Primary Principals and Catholic Education Melbourne. The new policy has been approved by the Arcbishop of Melbourne. This amended policy is effective for the Year 7 enrolment period of 2022 and beyond. The major change to the Emmaus Enrolment Policy is that Non-Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a Catholic school will now be considered ahead of Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a government or independent school.
