We are fastening our seat belts as we prepare for some major Term 4 events. Year 12 practice exams and revision classes are occurring, alongside preparations for varied graduation events. Our Design, Art and Technology (DAT) staff and students are gearing up for the Annual Art Show (to be launched on Tuesday 16 October), and rehearsals are in full swing for the cast and crew of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ (3 shows over 16–17 November). November finishes with a Twilight Market on Maryland. Needless to say, October and November are huge months at OLMC.
OLMC’s High Tea in Heidelberg, held on Sunday 9 September, was generously supported by over 160 guests. Staff, parents and students began preparations weeks in advance of the event, organising food, drinks, table settings and decorations for the occasion. The culmination was a beautiful afternoon with high quality food and great company. As a fund-raiser for McAuley Community Services for Women, a Ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, the $6000 raised was a great outcome.
