Principal, Mrs Dale Morrow

In the first edition of Verbis for 2023, let me welcome you all to another academic year. Already the first week of the Term has gone by and our students have settled well into their classes. There seems to be a vibrant buzz of learning being heard throughout the corridors of our buildings once more. No doubt this is a sign that our staff has prepared well for the girls’ return and, by all accounts, lessons have started with gusto. Our challenge of course is to keep up the enthusiasm over the entire year.

We were delighted to welcome the new Year 7 students to the College – their first day being Tuesday of last week when they spent the day being looked after by our Senior students. It is always a very special day when you see the Year 12 girls welcome their Little Sisters with such genuine warmth. No doubt they remember what it was like to walk into St Rita's on that first day and they go out of their way to make sure that the Year 7 girls feel a part of their school community as quickly as possible. I have had a number of new parents contact me to say how truly special it was for their daughters to be welcomed into the school in such a genuinely warm manner. Our Senior girls are to be congratulated for the way they conducted themselves in this role and I thank them for the wonderful example of leadership they have displayed already.

The Year 5 students received an equally warm welcome with Year 11 students and staff being on hand to ensure there were many friendly faces. The energy that comes from our Primary Years is adding a whole new dimension to our College and it warms my heart to see the youngest members of our community adopt their new school with such enthusiasm. 

As is traditional for us here at St Rita’s College we have once again set a theme for the year in order to focus our thoughts and actions toward one of the particular traits of our Presentation Founder, Nano Nagle. It was in her adult life that Nano came to appreciate the hollowness of possessions (she grew up in a very well-to-do family) and devoted her life to the poor and lived a life of SIMPLICITY – which will be our focus theme for the year.  

In this day and age and in our society the idea of living a simple life presents all of us with quite a challenge – it can be easy to lose perspective when surrounded by and exposed to so much comparative material wealth. How can one lead a simple life in a very sophisticated environment like ours?  We will be exploring with the girls how all of us can take on a demeanour of simplicity and, in large part, come to appreciate that it all comes down to the choices we make and the extent to which we choose to buy in to popular culture.   

As Catholics, we are called to live a life of simplicity and detachment from material possessions in a way that controls us, focusing instead on what truly matters; relationships, community and service to others. 

As St Augustine observed long ago:

Who has ever reached everything they hoped for? When you come close to grasping the object of your desire, it immediately starts losing its charm. You begin to hope for other things, other attractions. And as soon as you obtain them they too begin to lose their charm.

Our year’s theme of SIMPLICITY will present all of us with much food for thought and challenge in coming to value what truly is important in life. 

God bless

Mrs Dale Morrow

Deputy Principal - Students, Mrs Maree Trims

The start of every academic year is always filled with anticipation, excitement and goals to improve on the previous year. I encourage any student who needs support in achieving their very best in academic learning to seek out the support of their subject teachers and peers. Being an active participant in classroom discussions, completing set homework, practicing questions, and revising subject content every day are ways to achieve your academic best. Ms Wallas, Head of Study Skills, is also available to work individually with students who want to achieve their academic best.

Deputy Principal - Students, Ms Catherine Allen

Welcome to the 2023 school year. It is great to see the students back, and we welcome new students to the College. With our new Year 5s, we now have a full complement of students from Years 5-12. There is a lovely energy. Welcome to all our new families and staff too.

As a Presentation school with the motto Virtute non Verbis - Action not Words, we work hard to ensure our students will grow with understanding and experience of action based on our pillars of Simplicity, Compassion and Hospitality, as well as Courage, Justice and Hope. Our intent is that these are demonstrated in all our interactions and decisions, as well as how we physically present ourselves. This outward presentation is seen in how our students wear the College uniform. Please support your daughter to wear the College uniform correctly and with pride. This includes bags, lunchbox and hat. 

To and from school students must carry a school crest-badged bag. This has been communicated to students explicitly since 2021. Options can be found on the Online Boutique website. 

The haversack and sports bag can only be used for their design purpose and not in place of a badged school bag. 

Lunch bags must be carried within a College bag when travelling to and from school, unless it is the College lunch bag. 

Unbadged satchels can only be used to and from classes on campus. They are not to be used outside the College campus. This will result in an infringement. 

Hats must meet an acceptable standard. The College does not endorse any repairers. Hefty use of glue and stitching is not acceptable. If a hat is in this condition it needs to be replaced. Students were informed of this last year. Please remind your daughter to look after the hat correctly. Many students push the hat down into their bag and this, over time, can destroy the crown of the hat.

Care instructions as provided by the hat supplier are: 

  • Remove loose soil with a soft brush;
  • Hand sponge with cold water;
  • Use a mild soap to remove spots and rinse;
  • Dry naturally, preferably out of direct sunlight;
  • Please do not wash the Formal Hat in the dishwasher; this breaks down the protective barrier and fibres of the hat, weakening the crown of the hat, which leads to breakages.
  • Please do not tumble dry or dry clean.

If you need to purchase any uniform item, please contact the Boutique: Click here to visit the Online Boutique.

Please be reminded that the College does not accept payment via a Smart Watch. Your students are advised to not access messages, texts or calls whilst in any class. As with mobile phones, if this is seen by a teacher, this will be confiscated. The following link is worth a look: Get started with Schooltime on Apple Watch – Apple Support (UK)

On Friday the Year 11s did a workshop with Glen Gerreyn from the Hopefull Institute (Click here: High School Motivational Speaker in Australia | The HopeFULL Institute).  Glen shared some great advice and strategies to assist them in committing to a successful, hopeful and attainable future. If you have a daughter in Year 11 you might like to have a look through the booklet with her and discuss some of the notes taken down. If they pursue these strategies, they really will be best prepared for less stress and academic success.

Wishing everyone a year filled with exciting challenges and opportunities for growth and success.

2023 NAPLAN Online – Years 5, 7 and 9

St Rita’s College will be completing NAPLAN Online on March 15, 16, 17 and 20. Please note the earlier dates for this year.

The schedule for the tests is as follows:

If a student is absent on the day of testing, please, in the first instance, follow normal procedures regarding absences. It would also be appreciated if, in the case of absence, an email is sent to, indicating how long you expect the absence to be so that Catch-Up tests can be arranged.

Preparation for the tests is currently underway, particularly in Mathematics and English classes. All Years 5, 7 and 9 students have also had access to the NAPLAN Practice Tests. The Public demonstration site ( is a useful resource to gain familiarity with the online testing environment.

Ultimately the best preparation for NAPLAN is the support of family and school. It is important that all students are reassured that while we all want success for our students, it is a ‘point-in-time’ test which is a measurement tool only. In many ways, a good night’s sleep and breakfast is the best preparation. It is important that while we want all students to give their best, they also do not feel any overwhelming pressure or stress to perform.

Requirements for NAPLAN: Students must bring wired earbuds/headphones to complete NAPLAN Online testing. Students do not require expensive earbuds or headphones. Wireless/Bluetooth earbuds/headphones (such as airpods) are not permitted. Students must also bring a pen for their planning/working out. Water bottles are permitted.

You can access more Parent information regarding NAPLAN on the following link:

NAPLAN Online – information for parents and carers

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further information about the College’s NAPLAN Online program.

Head of Primary, Ms Georgina Howard

It has been a very exciting few weeks in the Primary Years at St Rita’s!

For the first time in many years, we have welcomed both Year 5 and Year 6 to our College community. In addition to the anticipation of increasing the number of Primary students on campus, we are excited to be doubling the energy and enthusiasm that our Primary cohort brings to College life. These first weeks have exceeded our expectations and we have thoroughly enjoyed seeing our Primary classrooms being filled with joy, noise, and fun. We look forward to exciting times ahead.

One of the highlights for all Primary students has been the unveiling of our highly anticipated Primary Playground. Last year, Mrs Morrow sought input from our Year 5 students in designing a playground that was age-appropriate, enjoyable and invigorating - the result has been tremendous. The feedback we have received from our Primary students has been overwhelmingly positive and the unique design of the Playground seamlessly fits within our College grounds. When I asked a large group of Year 5 students what their favourite feature of the Playground was, they replied in unison “the whole thing!” Thank you to all who were involved in creating this space for Primary students. As a Primary Team, we extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff and students who have helped our Primary students make such a positive start to the 2023 school year. We would like to especially thank the Year 11 students who volunteered their last morning of school holidays to help our Year 5 cohort settle in on their first day. Your generosity in sharing your time was so appreciated and made a real difference for our youngest students on their first day at St Rita’s.

Primary Team

Our Primary Team has expanded with the addition of four new teachers in 2023.

In Year 5, Miss Lucy Fardoulys (5.1) and Mrs Louisa Apps (5.2) are joined by Miss Nadine Richardson (5.3). 

In Year 6, we have Mr Mark Robinson (6.1), Mrs Helen Skelton (6.2) and Miss Kirstina Dawson (6.3).

Each one of our Primary Teachers is an outstanding and experienced educator.

With the support of Mrs Kerrie Hukins as our Primary Administration Officer, we are truly fortunate to have such an exceptional group of people working with and caring for our Primary students each day.

Primary House Assembly

Last Friday was a significant milestone for our Primary Years as we held our very first Primary House Assembly. This year, the Year 6 House Representatives will be leading the students at our Primary House Assemblies. They will lead team building activities, unpack the Ministries and Wellbeing focus of each House and connect with their peers across the Primary year levels. On Friday, our Year 5 and Year 6 students worked together for the first time as they completed a craft activity that will soon feature in our Primary area. Stay tuned for photo updates!

Mobile Phones and Smart Watches

In the Primary Years, students are required to hand mobile phones and smartwatches to their class teacher each morning. Student devices are returned at the end of the school day. Please note that all smartwatches are required to be handed to the class teacher, regardless of school mode capability.

Restricted Parking – Craven Street

Drivers need to be aware that the Brisbane City Council has introduced two x 2P parking restriction areas on Craven Street which are in operation from 8:30am to 3:00pm on school days.

Similar proposed changes to on-street parking in Liverpool Road, Enderley Avenue, Enderley Road, Florence Street and Stewart Street did not receive sufficient support and will not proceed.

Enderley Road Student and Vehicle Traffic

Safety on Enderley Road and surrounding streets is a priority for the College and we request that all drivers assist us in achieving this. Please have patience and show courtesy to other drivers and students.

  • Drivers are not to Drop Off nor Pick Up students on Yellow-lined and/or ‘witch-hatted’ areas
  • Students, Staff and all Visitors are to use the Assisted Crossing near the Pool Driveway
  • Please do not Speed
  • Students should alight from vehicles on the curbside, not the roadside.

Afternoon Pick Up

We ask that all drivers using the afternoon Drop Off zones help us with safety by using the zones correctly. The biggest issue is vehicles not continuously moving forward in the queue. Drivers should not ‘park and wait’ in the zone. This is causing vehicles to have to manoeuvre and weave in and out around ‘parked’ vehicles in the queue, resulting in unwanted congestion and an unsafe road environment.

When using the Pick Up Zone

  • Use the area like a moving taxi rank
  • Move forward in the queue as the vehicle in front of you departs
  • You can get out of your vehicle to quickly help your child get in safely, however you must not walk away from your vehicle or leave your vehicle unattended
  • Ask your child to walk along the area to look for your car

Drivers should note that under Traffic regulations you are only allowed 2 minutes in the signed area (if you take any longer you can be fined)—if your child is not waiting for you when you arrive and you have been in the zone for over 2 minutes, you should drive off and come back to enter the area again.

Year 5 Pick Up

  • Please do not queue across the College Driveway or in Enderley Road in waiting for the boomgate to open at 3:20pm. You will be moved on.
  • Your student Lastname banner must be clearly visible on the passenger side visor on entering the College driveway.

Outdoor Education at St Rita's College
Mrs Rebecca Balfe, Teacher/Outdoor Education Coordinator

Mrs Rebecca Balfe, Teacher/Outdoor Education Coordinator

The Outdoor Education program at the College is carefully designed to give students the opportunity to participate in team activities that develop and enhance resilience and collaboration, alongside their organisational and leadership abilities. Working in partnership with two of the most respected Queensland-based providers of Outdoor Education, a sequential approach has been constructed to reference seminal points of Australia’s national narrative – the uniqueness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and the ANZAC story. 

Attendance at camp is compulsory for students in Years 5 - 10. Every year, students show us how brave they are by stepping outside of their comfort zone when faced with a range of personal challenges. If your daughter has specific needs or circumstances which we may need to plan for, can you please make contact with me as early as possible so we have plenty of time to ensure adjustments and plans are in place so that she is safe and comfortable at camp. If she is feeling nervous about camp, we can discuss strategies to support her.

If your daughter is commencing at the College in either Year 5 or Year 7, I encourage you to consider purchasing a good quality rain jacket that she will grow into so it can be taken to camp in future years also.

Information about each camp is sent closer to the time via Operoo. In the meantime, please take note of the 2023 dates and locations for the camp for each Year level:

  • Year 5 Camp - QCCC Mapleton - Term 2: 15-17 May
  • Year 6 Trip - Canberra - Term 2: 22-26 May
  • Year 7 Camp - QCCC Mapleton - Term 1: 22-24 February
  • Year 8 Camp - QCCC Tamborine - Term 2: 26-28 April
  • Year 9 Camp - QCCC Noosa - Term 3: 23-25 August
  • Year 10 Camp - Emu Gully - Term 4: 9-12 October

If you have any questions about Outdoor Education Camps throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College -

Welcome to Music

It has been an exciting time to see so many new faces within the Music Centre this week. While most of our new students are in Years 5 and 7, we also welcome some new students to the Music program from other Year levels. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of our new students in our concerts and other performance opportunities throughout this year.

To be sure that you have all the information you require about the program, please download the College App and set your subscriptions for Music – General, as well as any of the other categories of Bands, Choirs, Strings and Guitar Ensembles and Music Support Group. Already on the App you will find information about our Term 1 Music Events, Ensemble Rehearsal Schedule and a copy of the Cocurricular Music Handbook. While the start of the year always seems a little hectic, it certainly does not take long for students to find their way and get to know how things run. However, if at any time you have a question or are unable to find the information you are looking for, please contact the Music Department at We look forward to welcoming all of our new and returning families at our concerts and events during the year.

Hamilton Rotary Club Citizenship Ceremony

Last week several students from our Chamber Chorale performed as part of the Citizenship Ceremony held at Hamilton Town Hall. Their professionalism and the high quality of their performance was noted by everyone in attendance and we gratefully received some very high praise from dignitaries present and the organisers of the event. The students were certainly a credit to themselves and the College. Thank you to our Choral Director, Mrs Lou Wall, for her efforts that continues to produce such high standards from our choral students.

Senior Music Camp

The 2023 Senior Music Camp kicked off, as always, with a herd of rowdy students ending the school day early, laden with duffle bags, instruments, and Disney costumes hidden away. Once arriving at beautiful Mt Tamborine on Friday afternoon, we unpacked and got ready for the first rehearsal of the camp.

In our first rehearsals, students received some new repertoire. Music Camp provided us with the chance to become more comfortable and confident with our repertoire and gave us the opportunity to grow as a community, before starting our weekly rehearsals. The ensembles that attended the camp included Symphony Orchestra, String Sinfonia, Concert Band, Guitar Ensemble, St Rita’s Chorale, and Chamber Chorale.

After dinner on Friday night, the Music Captains introduced their theme for the year… Connection! We hope to achieve this across Year levels and within choral, band, and strings. Lily Holm, one of our Strings Captains, then hosted a game of “How Well Do You Know Your Ensemble Leaders?”.

Saturday kicked off with a yoga session lead by choir teacher Mrs Wall, to encourage everyone to be connected with each other and themselves. This was followed by our first Camp Choir rehearsal together.

Camp Choir is a Music Camp tradition that has served us well, both musically and as a community. Singing together not only improves our ability to understand how a melody should sound before playing it on an instrument, but also brings the music department closer. There is a sense of joy in the room when we all sing together, knowing that we can produce such a beautiful sound with nothing more than our voices.

Following Camp Choir, the day was jam packed with rehearsals, leading to many tired faces after lunch. Mr Kennedy, who has hosted this camp for many years, recognised the importance of balance, not only with music, but also with fitness and mental health. To relax our brains after the stresses of rehearsals, and to reset our energy, Mrs Wall led us on a guided meditation (though for some, it was an accidental nap…)

After this brief pause in our day, rehearsals continued right up until 5:00pm. That’s when we get to the main event of the camp. Everybody headed back to their quarters to prepare for the Disney Ball!

A range of fanciful characters visited the Ball that evening, from Walt Disney himself to Gaston and Belle. The Captains were fashionably late as Cruella couldn’t find her wig, but soon the feast had begun! After this came a fashion show, with Josie Kropp and Taya Kirk as Rapunzel and Pascal stealing best dressed, and Liliana Osborne and Alessia Martini as Pluto and Goofy receiving runners up!

Honourable mentions go to the confusedly but incredibly dressed Mr Kennedy, whose costume led to an impromptu game of “Guess which four Disney movies his costumes come from…” Those fighting for a chocolatey prize knew the answers were Maleficent’s cape from Sleeping Beauty, King Trident’s trident from The Little Mermaid, Nemo from Finding Nemo and Mr Smee’s bandana from Peter Pan. A valiant effort Mr Kennedy, we appreciate the complexity. We then finished the night with a disco, jumping along to the Nutbush, belting out Bohemian Rhapsody, and dancing to many Disney classics.

Back at school on Sunday afternoon, the Camp Choir performed Malakatumba by Josu Elberdin which nicely wrapped up a wonderful weekend. Exhausted but cheerful, we left school knowing this would be a camp to remember.

CaSSSA Cross Country

2023 is a big year for Cross Country. After several years of podium success we want to strive for the top. Be part of the success story by representing your College and yourself in 2023 - we need to start training and we need as many girls as possible to train consistently over the season.

Training will commence Monday 6 February.

2023 Cross Country training times and days are:

  • Monday – 6:15am – 7:45am
  • Wednesday – 6:15am – 7:45am
  • Friday – 6:15am – 7:45am

All training sessions meet on the Flat at St Rita’s College.

Girls of all abilities from Year 5 to Year 12 are encouraged to attend. No matter how fast you run or how fit you are, every St Rita’s student is welcome and encouraged to attend Cross Country Training. While our goal is to win the CaSSSA Championship, it is also our goal to assist every girl to remain fit, healthy and happy. Having an early morning run before school with your friends is a great way to achieve this.

There will be two groups this year. One group will be for experienced runners aiming to challenge themselves, and the second group will be for those students that aren’t as experienced, yet looking to improve their fitness and hopefully develop to a standard where they can train with the first group. Again, no matter how you run, there will be a place for you at the training sessions.

It is important to note that there is no commitment to the number of sessions that you can attend. You can attend as many or as few sessions as you wish.

Looking forward to getting as many students at training as possible.

CaSSSA Swimming

Our Swimmers have been busy churning the water in anticipation for the upcoming CaSSSA Selection events held this Term. Participation in our aquatic program has been steadily increasing over the last year and with the dedication shown, we know we will be a force to contend with come Thursday 9 March at the Championships Carnival.

To be considered for selection for our CaSSSA Swim team, students need to attend two lead up meets where times are collated and used for selection. Our final team will be announced in early March and we can’t wait to get behind them.

Information on meets and a nomination form is available on the College App and MySRC under Swimming.

We hope to see as many students swimming and raising the bar towards great results.

CaSSSA Team Sports Term 1

Yesterday our Term 1 CaSSSA Teams commenced training for Volleyball. It was amazing to see 10 Teams in action spread over our courts. We also have two AFL teams out working hard. Our 16-a-side team had an early game vs All Hallows' School. Our Tennis teams are also hard at work with the first round of games this weekend. It is always a great sound to hear so many students out enjoying sport around the courts after school.

CaSSSA Team Sports Term 2

We are busy planning trial dates and nomination forms ready to spring into Term 2 action. Keep your eyes peeled on the App and MySRC for more information coming soon.

CaSSSA Term 2 Sports are:

  • Volleyball – Years 7 and 8 students 
  • Touch Football -  Years 7 and 8 students 
  • Hockey – All Year levels (Senior and Junior teams) 
  • Netball – Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 students

Water Polo

Australian Youth Water Polo Championships

In the January holidays, the College had three teams attend the Australian Youth Water Polo Championships in Perth, WA.

The U14 SRC and U18 SRC/Polo Bears teams competed in Week 1, coming 10th and 4th in Australia respectively. The SRC U16s team finished 11th in Australia.

A huge thank you to our coaches, managers and parents. All players had a wonderful experience and it was a great opportunity to play great Water Polo against different states.

2023 BWPI Competition

Saturday 4 February is the first round back of the BWPI competition for the New Year. We look forward to seeing all players in the water again on Saturday!
