CELEBRATION - 200 YEARS
OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION IN AUSTRALIA
On Monday 24th May, representatives from all the Catholic schools and colleges across the Diocese of Cairns gathered at St. Monica’s Cathedral in Cairns to celebrate 200 years of Catholic Education in Australia. This year, all dioceses around Australia, together with their school communities, celebrate this significant milestone for both the Catholic Church and the broader Australian community. For our diocese, this main celebration began with Mass at the Cathedral followed by light refreshments and fellowship afterwards.
Representing Mount St Bernard College were our College and Boarding Captains (Jessica Claus, Stacey Edwards, Denison Hilla, Bryce Whap and Daliah Pearson) together with Mr. Tim Jackson (College Board) and myself. During the Mass, Jessica read the first reading from Scripture.
For us at MSB, this year celebrates two significant milestones: our own college’s centenary (100 years) and the bicentenary (200 years) of Catholic Education in Australia. May we at MSB be inspired to continue to let our light shine into the future even more brightly than ever.
Year 7 Geography classes visited Herberton to assess its liveability. They recorded the environmental quality, education and health facilities, access to shops and services, and recreational and cultural activities available in Herberton. Year 7 are learning how to identify and measure the social, economic and environmental factors that make a place liveable.
