Look out Blue and Yellow – Green’s in the house!
St Augustine’s College inducted a new house last Friday, ending the Brigidine and Augustine monopoly that has endured since the school’s beginning.
Delany house commands respect with about 100 of the school’s Year 5 to 12 students chosen to form the new house.
The name Delany, which students and staff voted on, has a connection to the school’s history through the Brigidine Sisters.
Bishop Daniel Delany was the founder of the Brigidine Order.
He helped the first women to start the Sisters of Saint Brigid.
Some of these sisters were sent to Australia and played an instrumental part in the development of St Augustine’s College.
The school community chose the colour green for Delany house as it highlights St Augustine’s ties with Ireland and also the school’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
Students wore their house colours last Friday and played games to celebrate the induction of the new house.
Grace Leahy, Jayden Mitchell and Abbey Pyke are inaugural Delany house captains.
