Catholic Schools Week 2017 - Day 4

Day four of Catholic Schools Week 2017 was a big day across the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle for many schools with many special events.



At San Clemente High School, Mayfield, the Year 7 and 9 SRC school leaders were commissioned to their positions during school assembly in front of parents, teachers and school peers. Prior to the assembly, students gathered with their visitors for a special morning tea to celebrate their achievement. 

Meanwhile, down the road in Adamstown, secondary school students met at The Factory at St Pius X High School for the annual Diocesan Theatre Sports competition. Each team was scored out of five and the competition was fierce, showcasing drama students improvisation skills and talent.
