Rhythm & Jesus - 6pm in the College Hall
On Sunday 17 May the Roncalli College has it's Open Day and this is a chance for us to show the wider community what makes us special. As ERO noticed, it is the strong relationships between staff and students, and within the student body, especially between the different year levels that they found to be incredibly positive and quite unique. The sense of family and belonging that parents, students and staff feel is at the heart of the College and one that underpins any success that the College and the students enjoy.
The expectation is that all students will be part of this scheduled school day. students should see it as an opportunity for them to showcase what they love about being a Roncallian and how they carve their own niches through what the College offers. Students are encouraged to embrace the fact that they are able to do what they love most from 9:30am until 1:30pm and liaise with staff to make this happen.
In addition we invite any members of the wider South Canterbury community to come along and see Roncallians in action throughout the day. If you or anyone that you know of have any questions at all about enrolments and can not make this day, please do not hesitate to contact Chris Comeau, Andrew Jones or the College Office for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 688 6003.
STUDENTS LEAVING THE COLLEGE GROUNDS
A reminder that all students are expected to remain on the College grounds for the duration of the College Day, 8:35am-3:30pm. If student need to purchase their lunch then they need to use the College Tuck Shop that is open at interval and lunchtime and has a range of options.The only exception to this is the Year 13 privilege that allows them to leave the grounds at lunchtime on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday only. Year 13 students are to consume any bought food, offsite, as the College Tuck Shop has the sole contract to deliver food on site. Students are not to bring food bought from outside establishments onsite.
All students are expected to attend Assembly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and be onsite in time for the bell at 8:35am. By coming together as a College we start as a family, with a prayer and/or reflection. If a student is unable to be on site by the bell parents are able to contact the College Office or write a note explaining the lateness and it will be acknowledged.
