Dear Members of the Kolbe Catholic College Community

We conclude another successful term in the life of Kolbe Catholic College. I take this opportunity to thank the students and the teachers for all their hard work.

National Child Protection Week

Last week was National Child Protection Week. At Kolbe Catholic College the safety and protection from abuse, or harm, of every Kolbe student is central to the mission and ethos of this school. To ensure this focus is a practical reality, the College has the following systems in place:

  • All staff are either Registered Teachers or have Working with Children checks.
  • All Teaching and Non-Teaching staff undergo school-based child protection training.
  • College Leadership Team and Senior Staff members have additional child protection training.
  • Mandatory reporting systems adhere to Federal and State Legislation and CEM Policy.
  • Students are instructed with emphasis on personal safety in a number of forums during the year.

In effect, the College abides by the highest contemporary professional and legal standards of child protection.

Student Leaders 2024

Recently the Year 7 – 11 students and the staff were invited to vote for the 2024 College Captaincy. Our captains and vice-captains have been elected and the results are as follows:

College Captains in 2024 are Caleb Katigbak and Allison Paculba and the Vice Captains are Alexander Grech and Annabel Kassis.

I look forward to working with these senior students to strategically improve Kolbe Catholic College in 2024.

Thank you to the unsuccessful candidates for having the courage to put themselves through the rigorous nomination process. They will be very important leaders for Kolbe Catholic College next year.

To conclude, I hope all the students and the staff have a well-earned break and returned refreshed to Term 4 on Monday October 2nd.

Mr Nick Scully

From the Deputy Principal: Staff
