Hennessy Catholic College Yearbook 2022


‘ Living Spiritually’ has been our theme for 2022. We have promoted the notion from the Edmund Rice Foundation that ‘We invite all people into the story of Jesus and strive to make his message of compassion, justice and peace a living reality within our community.’ There have been many examples of students and staff in the Hennessy community living out the Gospel values in an authentic and caring manner during 2022. This year we welcomed many new students to Year 7 and Year 11 as well as other year groups. Our new Year 7 cohort has enjoyed the challenges of high school and making new friends. Our Year 12 Class of 2022 has now left and eagerly await their HSC results, this class will be greatly missed for their positive influence in the community due to their enthusiasm, generosity and great work ethic. Due to the strong job market, quite a few students have left during Year 11 and 12 to take up apprenticeships. Whilst it has been sad to see these students leave, it is also wonderful to see them embarking on their career dreams. Special recognition must also go to our student leadership team led by Sarah Dillon and Damon Xia. The student leadership team have worked tirelessly to be a student voice, they were particularly proud of their initiative to make RUOK Day an RUOK Week with a variety of activities and a strong message of inclusion for all. The Hennessy staff also deserve a big thank you. They are caring professionals, who no matter what their role, go above and beyond to make each student feel known and cared for. The quality of teaching at Hennessy continues to be outstanding which was clearly shown in our impressive 2021 HSC results and the growth evident in NAPLAN results. This year the teachers continue to work on the archdiocesan Catalyst initiative to look for ways to further improve their teaching, particularly considering High Engagement in the classroom.
