STCC Easter Liturgy

This year through the work of Project Compassion’s ‘BE MORE’ campaign, and as part of the Social Justice Statement for 2021, we have explored at St Clare’s what living life to the full can look like. We have practiced wellbeing across the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions of the College. We have prioritised relationships of kindness as we strive to love our neighbours as ourselves. This Easter, we encourage everyone to move beyond the ‘old normal’ as we are challenged to embrace Jesus’ promise for full lives together.  The STCC… Read More

More Native Stingless Bees Arrive

The College welcomed some new members to our community on Thursday 22nd October, with the installation of our second beehive containing more native stingless bees. The installation was the end result of the Year 7 project that took place in Term 4, 2019.

As part of their work students have been asked to create prototypes of a native stingless beehive based on the two hives we have in our front garden. There have been a wide variety of designs emerging, with… Read More
