 Literacy and Boys 

I have recently read a report on the latest results from the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), released on Tuesday, showing that Australia was one of 18 countries to improve its reading levels.

Please follow the link below to read more about this vital area of education for our boys. 


Review into Catholic Education in Southern Tasmania 

As noted in last week's Star,  we have received an invitation from KPMG who have been engaged by the Archbishop of Hobart, Julian Porteous and the Tasmanian Catholic Education Commission (TCEC) to undertake a review of the Catholic Education ‘system’ in southern Tasmania. This review will occur from November 2017 to 30 April 2018.

The College has been encouraged to undertake broad engagement with our community in the framing of a submission and it would be greatly appreciated if your family could find time to complete a relevant survey(s) from the list below:
