Congratulations to Ben Cavarra, a former student of St John the Baptist and son to our wonderful Ange Cavarra and her husband Sam. As you know Ben debuted for the Bulldogs earlier in the season. After his debut game the AFL was shut down due to our escalating numbers in Victoria of COVID-19. Ben then had an injury which further sidelined him once the season resumed. In true Ben style he put his head down, trained hard and showed incredible determination and self belief that he would be selected to play. Ben has played the last two games for the Bulldogs. He has scored goals in every AFL game he has played, placed great forward pressure on the opposition and displayed great sportsmanship and teamwork. Ben is a great example to our community of what it really means to pursue your passion with persistence and grit and to continue to believe in yourself.
Our website has become an important resource where we can reach out to both our current school community and our broader community. We are continuing to add content to improve what we can offer. Our latest edition to the website is our UpSchool Platform. As a school we see the importance of extending education beyond the classroom. We believe that one of the foundations of strong communities with healthy people (both mind and body) is access to education. UpSchool is an online resource we invite you to explore, immerse in and be inspired by. This resource is our way of sharing positive and inspiring messages that we feel will have a direct and positive impact on our community.
I encourage you to visit our website -
