It is inevitable that in a school the size of St Michael’s College, many of our students will experience the illness and/or death of a close family member or friend. Many of you are familiar with my involvement with the families of the school. I would like to invite you to call me if there is any assistance I can offer with bereavements, funerals or support for your families during illness, whether it be a visit or prayers.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly via email: SrNithya@smc.sa.edu.au and/or mobile: 0432 340 268.

OLD SCHOLAR NEWS
Old scholar, Daniel Scali (2010), is hoping to beat the world record for longest abdominal plank which currently sits at 8 hours 15 minutes.
Daniel is living with a lifelong condition called CRPS which was caused after a trampolining accident when he was young. He deals with chronic pain every day and has overcome some very serious medical hurdles.
To raise awareness for the medical condition as well as Australians that deal with severe pain every day, Daniel is hoping to raise $10,000 for Pain Australia. He’s currently sitting just over the half way mark, as is his planking where he’s hit over 5 hours.
