St Louis Day 21st June 2013

On Friday 21st June, Saint Louis students celebrated their House Day at John XXIII College. The day started with a special focus at the Community Mass on Saint Aloysius Gonzaga and Saint Louis students were involved in the Mass. It was particularly special this year as it fell on the actual feast day of Aloysius Gonzaga.

Over the past week we have been reflecting on the life of our patron St Aloysius Gonzaga. This culminated in a quiz on St Louis during our assembly and we held a "Voluntary gold coin donation collection" to raise some funds to send to the Jesuit missions in India in memory of our patron who gave so much to those less fortunate. This was an attempt to follow his great example to us all.

On St Louis Day we shared a pizza lunch in the hall and students took part in an inter-homeroom music quiz that kept us all entertained. We also celebrated some of the outstanding contributions from Saint Louis students so far this year. Homeroom teachers and other House staff were asked to put forward the names of students who had made an extra effort in regards to Homeroom time or House spirit.

The following students were awarded a Saint Louis award:

It was a pleasure to see all students involved and enthusiastic in our House day celebration. A special mention must be made of the House staff and our various student leaders for their help in organising the day.
