A Place of Great Diversity

Mr Matthew Brennan - College Principal (K-12)

Dear Members of the St Greg’s family,

St Gregory’s is a place of great diversity.  We have a community made up of people from all parts of the globe and all walks of life.  When I speak of community, I include quite purposefully staff, students, and parents alike.  I am in an incredibly fortunate position as the College Principal of St Gregory’s College to have regular, meaningful contact with all our stakeholders.

St Gregory’s is a College that regularly recognises the achievements of our community.  It is well documented, as can be evidenced in our newsletters, the broad range of successes academically, in sport and in the arts.  We have state finalists, national representatives, and outstanding sports and debating teams. Our College musical is a great success and many competitions that students at the College enter into, be it agricultural, sporting or academic spaces are also often won or we are well placed.

Leadership is a Verb

Mr Joel Weekes - Assistant Principal

Dear Members of the St Gregory’s Family, 

Welcome back to Term 4 – I trust that this edition of the St Gregory’s College newsletter finds you well and that you are set for a big Term 4!

This week I had the pleasure, alongside Mr Coughlan to spend two days with our new Student Leadership Team for 2023/2024 in our Marist heartland in Mittagong. Over the two days we spent the time together looking at what leadership is, pulling apart the new leadership roles and structure, defining the responsibilities of our student leadership group, and exploring the legacy of these roles.  We had some much needed time together to plan our group and individual goals as a new collective leadership group.

Strong Minds, Gentle Hearts

Mrs Diana Ivancic - Head of Junior School

Dear Parents & Carers,

Last night I reconnected with the fellow pilgrims that I went on Pilgrimage with over zoom, revisiting our journey and our experiences. We also took time to pray as a group for the people in Israel who are experiencing such devastation, unrest and heartbreak at this time. We can’t underestimate how blessed we are to be in a place where we are safe and at peace. As Marists, we pray for those overseas who are impacted and continue to nurture the importance of treating each other with respect and, in the way of Mary, as Marists.
