St Benedict's student success at the Diocesan Athletics Championships
On Friday the 29th of July, a selection of students visited Campbelltown Sports Stadium to represent St Benedict’s Catholic College at the Wollongong Dioceses Athletics Carnival.
Over the day, students from all year groups were able to showcase their athletic ability and talents across a range of track and field events, such as long jump, high jump and 100m sprints.
A special congratulations for Joseph C who received the Age Champion Award for Under 16’s and for Riley D who received second place Age Champion Award for Under 15’s. Both students participated in a wide variety of events on the day and collected plenty of ribbons for their efforts.
Congratulations go to our other standout performances which include:
Emily D - 3rd 1500m
Daniel W - 3rd 100m

Joseph C - 2nd Long Jump, 2nd Shot Put, 1st Discus, 1st Javelin, 2nd Triple Jump

PICTON SCHOOL BUSES
To All Schools
We would like to notify you that from Monday 1st August 2022, Picton Buslines drivers and staff will be implementing a two-week blitz on school student bus passes.
The Transport for NSW School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) provides eligible school students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school. When travelling between home and school, students must adhere to various regulations regarding passenger behaviour and the Codes of Conduct for travel by bus. One of the obligations of students is to show their travel pass or ticket when requested.
We ask that you notify any students that catch Picton Buslines buses to and/or from school to have their physical bus passes ready to display to the driver before boarding the bus. Note that we will not accept students showing a photo of their bus pass on their phone.
If a student is planning on catching the bus and they do not have a current valid bus pass, their pass is damaged or lost card, please inform their parents/guardians to contact our office on 02 4677 1564 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a pass.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks and regards,
Manager | Director
