Congratulations to Ben Fergus (Year 11) who won the Lord Mayor’s Young Environmental Photographer of the Year Awards 2016 – High School category 2: Water for our Future.

The Primary student leaders travelled into the City with Mrs Elizabeth Chaplain and Reverend Canon Sarah Leisemann to attend the annual service for students in South East Queensland, organised by the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee (ADCC). Our students represented the College proudly, with the Primary and Spiritual Leaders laying flowers at the Eternal Flame and getting to shake the hand of the Governor of Queensland, His Excellency, Hon Paul de Jersey AC. All our students paid their respects at the memorial and found the morning moving and inspiring.

The Secondary and Primary schools were led in their ANZAC Day remembrance by the College, Primary and Spiritual Leaders. The CHAC Concert Band provided a very stirring accompaniment to the Secondary service, while the wreaths created by the Primary students were both colourful and unique.

CHAC won the Boys Overall Champions of 2016 TAS Swimming, following the swimming carnival on 23 March.

We were privileged to welcome the Most Reverend Dr Phillip Aspinall, Archbishop of Brisbane, and the Hon Kate Jones MP, Minister for Education and Minister for Tourism and Major Events, who attended our Foundation Day to celebrate the 28th year of the College and to officially open, bless and dedicate the Primary Precinct and Junior Secondary Centre.

The Hon Kate Jones and Archbishop Aspinall joined the Principal, Robyn Bell, and the 20-year Service Award recipients (Alan McCullough and Carmel Mungavin), for the cutting of the celebratory Foundation Day cake. They were joined by College Captains (L to R) Joel Bulow, Aleisha McLaren, Ailish Hallinan and William Gunning.
