Nagle Catholic College is a Catholic, co-educational secondary school established in 1994 to serve the needs of families in the Mid-West region WA.

The College evolved following the amalgamation of Stella Maris Presentation College and St Patrick’s College in Geraldton. Nagle acknowledges the faith beliefs and traditions of both schools and seeks to develop the vision of their founders in a contemporary and modern Catholic setting. Nagle is well regarded within the community and this is reflected in the current enrolment of approximately 1,20

The annual Mid West round of the State Surf Titles saw 36 of our students participating in the competition at Back Beach.

Our students were very successful on the day winning every division they competed in, and were awarded the title of Champion School overall. The beautiful weather conditions and a large swell made it a great event for the surfers to compete in and for spectators to watch.

Inspired by Nano Nagle, our Year 11 Retreat saw our students ‘Carry the Lantern’ at our local Catholic Primary Schools and share her story. Through running short lessons based on Nano’s life, our Year 11s were able to not only give the Primary school students a deeper understanding of our charism, but also grow themselves as role models and leaders inspired by the Presentation Sisters. The younger students loved our Year 11s, and despite some nerves at the start, by the end of the visit they did not want to leave! Following lunch, the cohort completed their Walkathon fundraiser along the Geraldton Foreshore where they learnt about organ and tissue donations from Mrs Linda Thuijs at the Donar Awareness Fountain.

Our Year 11 Retreat is about giving our students a chance to step up to the roles they will fulfil as College leaders. It also provides them with an opportunity to have a break from regular school life and remind themselves of where they have come from in order to better understand where they are going.

Thank you to St John's School,, St Francis Xavier Primary School and St Lawrence's Primary School for being a part of this important learning experience for our students.

With our Interhouse Athletics Carnival in Week 6 on Friday 26 August, our Year 7 Athletics Trials provided the cohort with an opportunity to have a go at various Athletics events in the lead up to the Carnival, many of which was for their first time. The beautiful weather provided perfect conditions for the students to run, jump and throw, with their singing voices also getting a work out learning their House songs. Our Pre-Carnival events will commence in Week 5. More information will be available in Daily Notices.

In our Year 9 Painting and Drawing class students are given a good insight into the different styles, techniques, mediums and artists associated with contemporary painting and drawing. The theme for their final project focuses on contemporary ‘Skateboard art’. The project has a strong focus on the use of illustration, pattern and text. Students begin with a series of folio based activities in which they explore different aspects of this style which will lead towards designing a skateboard deck as a final art piece.

It was wonderful to see the progress from the initial designs to the final application on the skateboards in the Semester 1 class, with the students producing some fabulous and creative results!

In Term 2, our Year 8 Japanese classes learnt how to introduce people in Japanese. Their assessment task ‘My Favourite Celebrity’, saw the students create a poster describing their favourite celebrating in Japanese. There were some outstanding posters created with excellent presentation and accuracy of the sentences, demonstrating their learning throughout the Term. Well done!

The Nagle’s Got Talent (NGT) Grand Final provided a wonderful opportunity for the whole school community to gather together for our first time this Term. The three Grand Finalists acts entertained the audience with their singing, dancing, and comedy abilities. It takes great courage to stand up in front of an audience to perform, and with an audience of over 1,000 people, quite daunting for many, each of the Finalists took this in their stride without fault, for which they should all be commended for.

Well done to sister duo, Aila and Keira, our Nagle’s Got Talent 2022 winners!

It has been wonderful to hear the buzz around the College today as Term 3 begins, the last Term for our Class of 2022!

This week we will be sharing some of the amazing work produced by students at the end of Semester 1.

In our Year 9 Jewellery course, the final assessment saw the students create a classic Cowrie shell ring. The ring involves challenging soldering and shaping techniques as well as introducing a setting for previous stones or shells. It was wonderful to see the students really step up for the challenge and produce some fine examples. Well done to all!

It was inspiring to watch our Year 12s take part in the World's Greatest Shave by waxing, shaving and cutting their beautiful locks all in the name of charity, raising more than $4000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. Special mention to Erin and Bianca for bravely shaving their heads to help raise money for this wonderful cause.

Our Special Instrumental Scholarship (SIS) provides Year 7 students with the opportunity to learn and excel on a chosen musical instrument for free. Each year, the program consists of a mix of students, some who have never picked up an instrument before, and others who are a little more advance. Macey, now in Year 8, was selected for the 2021 SIS program, taking part in weekly singing lessons, participating in the College Choir and performing at the Nagle Music Evening, ‘I really enjoyed working on improving my vocals with my tutor throughout the year and also developing my confidence to perform in front of an audience. I have continued to take my weekly singing lessons, and have also chosen Music as an Option in Year 8, with the view to continue to take Music in Year 9 as well.’

Mr James Softly, our Head of Music, is passionate about inspiring students to develop their skills in music making and appreciation, and hopes the program gives SIS participants the confidence to continue with their Music journey as they advance in secondary school. In additional to our Special Instrumental Scholarship, we also have Music Options offered as part of our curriculum and our Instrumental Program.

Each year, our House Captains with their fellow Year 12 House members choose a charity they want to create awareness of and organise fundraising events to raise donations for the cause. The Ryan House Seniors created a fun-filled week of events to help raise money their chosen charity, the Cancer Council including a netball game, bake sale and fundraising 'dares'.

The group handmade cancer awareness ribbons and distributed them at ‘Australian’s Biggest Morning Tea’. Students and staff were asked to vote with their spare coins on a range of staff and student ‘dares’. Mr Matt Harding received the most votes and was dared to be ‘water-ballooned’, a very entertaining event for all!

The Ryan House Seniors are proud to have raised over $470 for the Cancer Council. They are very thankful to everyone who donated and volunteered, and to Mr Harding for being such a good sport to help raise funds for a very worthy cause.
