Nudgee Day
Any difficulty by a St Laurence’s College schoolboy this week in getting his hat to fit is understandable.It’s a reaction from Sunday’s ‘Nudgee Day’ athletics carnival. St. Laurie’s is one of the ‘little’ Catholic schools; the big ones are Terrace and Nudgee, both in the August GPS confederation. But on Sunday St. Laurie’s took out five of 10 open school events contested. It did not compete in three of the five events which went to other schools.

Students from St Laurence’s College gathered at school today to complete a 15 kilometre walk around inner Brisbane in an effort to raise money for several charities. Over 1500 boys from Grade 5 to 12 and 150 staff contributed their energy to make this fundraiser possible.Charities including Act for Kids, AEIOU Foundations, Bravehearts, MICAH Projects and the country of Timor Leste will benefit from this four hour walkathon.With “Building Spirit – Together” as the theme for the 2013 College walk, schoolboys were wearing bright yellow t-shirts to raise awareness in the community as they walked through West End, The Botanic Gardens, South Bank and over both Goodwill and Story Bridges.Principal Ian McDonald said, “The annual College Walkathon is a longstanding tradition for all students who have a strong sense of social justice and of helping those with the community who need support.”St Laurence’s College hopes to meet and beat all fundraising efforts from last year’s walkathon.
