During April, over 300 Catholic primary students from the Peninsula Community of Schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay participated in two Primary-Secondary Links day events at St Paul’s Catholic College Manly and Mater Maria Catholic College, Warriewood. The Links program enables Year 3 students from the 12 Peninsula Parish primary schools to participate in a range of engaging educational activities in a high school environment. The students enjoyed activities prepared by the St Paul’s and Mater Maria staff in the areas of science, music, drama and physical education. At Mater Maria, the Physical Education activity was led by Year 10 students as part of their Physical Activities and Exercise Studies course. A magical display of experiments, musical enrichment and educational theatre about why bullying is never acceptable were performed by Mater Maria Year 11 Drama students in their Anti-Bullying play. It is a worthwhile day for the Year 3 students in the Peninsula Community of Catholic Schools and an opportunity to highlight the K-12 learning continuum in our Diocese of Broken Bay.
