Thank you to all who attended the Raising Our Boys To Be Good Men event. It was a fantastic night. Principal Tony Paatsch summed it up beautifully in the school newsletter:

From The Principal, Tony Paatsch,
“Congratulations to the SBC Social Justice Network on the “Raising our Boys to be Good Men” evening held on Wednesday. We heard from Assistant Commissioner of Victoria Police Tess Walsh, mental health advocate Professor Patrick McGorry AO, Ben O’Toole from the Step Back and Think Foundation, Scott Holmes from the YMCA and Old Collegian and Youth Justice Worker, Andrew Gurrisi. A crowd of almost 400 found the speakers informative, entertaining and perhaps most importantly, challenging. As an EREA school one of the touchstones we aspire to is “Justice and Solidarity” and this event was a powerful example of this commitment in action. In my introduction to the evening I commented that I had seldom felt so proud to be part of the St Bernard’s community as on that night. I commend the work of the SBCSJN in putting this event together and hope that many more parents and students will choose to be part of this Network. “

We'd like to thank our wonderful panel, once again:
