Edmund Rice Camp 2017

2017 Edmund Rice Camp

During the September holiday (Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th September) the College senior boys and staff will be conducting an Edmund Rice Camp. These ‘special’ camps provide a holiday experience for young people aged between 7 and 16 who would not otherwise be able to enjoy a holiday.

Many of the participants come from what could be considered as marginalised or disadvantaged backgrounds. The camps also provide welcome respite for parents and families.

Twenty one St Mary’s College Years 11 and 12 boys will facilitate this camp, with the expert aid and assistance of generous young adult leaders who are graduands from other Edmund Rice Colleges. These young adults freely give of their time and talents which have included training our boys in advance and specifically leading the days of the camp.

I congratulate the St Mary’s College young men who will be generously undertaking these camps over the holiday break. Their efforts for these children at the margins are so appreciated. Well done gentlemen. I also thank our staff involved.

Mr Ed Russell (Ministry Co-ordinator), Mr Paul Grealy (Acting AP Identity), Miss Leah Dempster, Mr Mitch Koina, Mrs Annette Murdoch, Mr Mitch Keogh, Mr John Parker, Mr Steve Sowter, Mr Peter & Mrs Anna Chantler (TCSO Advisory Teacher), Mr Jeremy Seng (Edmund Rice Camps Program Coordinator).

Well done St Mary’s College
