The Assumption-Sacred Heart Exchange, from August 14 to 16, kicked off with a social on the Friday night. The theme was, As if you’d wear that. Year 10-12 students from both colleges enjoyed dressing up in their most outrageous clothes.
On Saturday night in the Gonz we celebrated Mass, led by former ACK boarder Fr Michael Kelly. It was a beautiful and reverent way to start the night, with input from students from both schools.
Assumption began the cultural side of things with notable performances by our musicians and talented dancers. Next was the debate on the topic Science is a threat to humanity. Sacred Heart took the negative side and won against Assumption’s Nicholas Reich, Mollie Ashworth and Gerard Pirie.
Next came Sacred Heart’s musical showcase with some upbeat renditions from their band and vocalists who moved into the crowd and got many in the Gonz audience up on their feet; a true example of the exciting atmosphere of the event for both schools.
Everyone enjoyed the Saturday night where SHC took the lead in competition before the sport on Sunday, during which members of the Parents and Friends fed us. Thank you.
