BOSCO MEDAL WINNER

The Bosco Medal winner for 2017 is Sophie Sliskovic.

The award, which was instigated by the House Captains several years ago, is now given annually to someone who embodies the values and work of John Bosco in the life of the College.

In making the announcement, the Head of Bosco House, Mr Tom Calderwood, said that this year’s recipient, Sophie, was someone who was hard-working, dedicated to her studies and reflected the true charism of Bosco House.

DONATIONS ON THEIR WAY

We asked and you answered!

We put out a request for books and literacy materials to send to Saint Peter Torot (Kuta Primary) School in Mt Hagen, Papua New Guinea.

Our GYC community and Association Colleges generously donated boxes of materials to support the English language program at the school.

It is anticipated that this will be an ongoing project, so books, educational resources or money donations will be much appreciated so we can continue to help the Mt Hagen children and adults who will benefit immensely.
