Hennessy Catholic College Yearbook 2022

With the challenges of COVID-19 changing the way we learn and the way we live, the well being of the Rice students have been at the forefront of all our minds. Finding ways we can challenge ourselves to develop our well-being using non-traditional methods has been of utmost importance. As a House, we continue to grow from strength to strength. Each student has been challenged to step outside of their comfort zone each term. It has also been really encouraging to see the development within our House of our College vision to ‘Live Spiritually, Learn Dynamically and Act Justly and inspiring futures of hope’. Some of the highlights for 2022 have included; various students succeeding at Archdiocesan levels for sport, those who have volunteered their time to raise funds for local charities, Dine and Donate and St Vincent de Paul. Rice House had a pleasing participation at the Athletics Carnival. Our overall position in the House Award points system has waned a little from last year. With a new batch of Year 7’s and Year 11’s we hope that efforts can improve from where we are currently. The Hennessy Day BBQ with the graduating Year 12’s 2022 running it and a successful Dine and Donate were two highlights this year. I would like to wholeheartedly thank the wonderful Rice House pastoral care team for 2022, Mrs Maryann Schiller, Ms Lucy Woods, Ms Camille Carberry, Mr Paul McAllister, Miss Bonnie Chen, Mrs Brooke McCann, Mrs Janice Dunk, Mr Conor Quinn, Mrs Leanne Parkman and Mrs Suzanne Duff for the wonderful support they have given the students within their Pastoral classes. Also the support staff that are involved in Rice House, Bob Ashton and Katrina Hudson. I also would like to thank Nicholas Louttit and Trysta Willoughby for their hard work and dedication as Rice House Captains along with Charlotte Cottrell the Vice Captain for 2022. I welcome our new Rice Captains, Luke Jewitt and Hayley Grotegoed for the 2022-2023 year. As we move into 2023, I look forward with enthusiasm to the challenges that a new year will bring to all of our lives, and certainly to Rice House staff and students. I would like to publicly thank the students, parents and staff of Rice House for all of their support during the year and I pray that we can continue to find ways to let the ‘good seed' grow in our hearts and minds. As individuals and as a House we continue to strive to 'Learn Dynamically, Act Justly and Live Spiritually', and strive to 'inspire futures of hope', as our Patron Edmund Rice inspires us to do through his life of service, compassion and kindness to the poor.
