Last week, nine of our year 9 students participated in the World Scholars' Cup with overwhelming results.
Almost a century after he was buried in an unmarked, common grave in South Australia, the remains of an Aboriginal digger, Private Miller Mack, who fought in the Great War were returned to his home of Raukkan. Kildare College students, some direct descendants of Private Miller Mack, were honored and humbled to be in attendance.
Recently, Kildare College was invited by the Kildare Ministries to attend a Social justice Seminar in Melbourne, along with Year 11 Justice and Democracy member, Leah Dunn. Through the course of the 2-day program, we were educated on the topics of Catholic Social Teaching, forced marriage, human trafficking, women’s rights and the work of Caritas.
On Tuesday at our Academic Assembly, we came together as a learning community to acknowledge and celebrate excellence and the great gifts and talents we share. It was a wonderful occasion where rejoiced in the achievements of our students, past and present.
