Celebrating ‘The Kolbe Way’

Jeannine Carrier (Deputy Principal)

Whilst our building program has not allowed our college to gather together as a whole, the
wonders of technology have allowed us to continue to do so through the live streaming of
our whole school assemblies.

At the assembly on Wednesday May 8 we celebrated everything that is wonderful about our
students at Kolbe. The newly elected Year 7 Student Leaders were presented to the college and House Awards were given to 6 incredible students who have been emulating ‘The Kolbe Way’ by excelling in different aspects of school life. In addition to this, the KOORT award that aims to recognise those who demonstrate Christian values of generosity and kindness was awarded to Emaan Dogan for her selfless dedication to the wellbeing of others.

Students from the Gifted and Talented Program (GATE) shared all of the unique experiences that they have been involved in, including the OZCLO competition where one team excelled by winning the State Gold and Bronze National Awards

Many of the assembly items illustrated how our students are willing to give of their time and resources to help those who are less fortunate. Rice house has asked for donations of stuffed toys for their charity ‘Wheelchairs for kids.’ This organisation builds wheelchairs for disadvantaged children in third world countries and Rice House is hoping that each chair will be accompanied with a stuffed animal. We also have many students from Years 7 – 12 who will begin fundraising for the annual World’s Greatest Shave and Chop for Cancer.

Our wonderful students have many different talents, which deserve celebrating. Whether it is in the arts, sporting, cultural, service or academic fields, students should be acknowledged for their efforts, particularly when they are performing to a high standard. We also loved hearing about all of the exciting things that are happening all over the college.
