Year 8

Welcome to Year 8 at St Aloysius’ College!

On this page you will find all key information relating to your time in Year 8.

Welcome back to school and to Year 8. There is no doubt that this year will be a challenging year now that you have settled into school life, as you will be set targets that will push you to continue to achieve your potential and grow as a student in the school. This should be exiting as it is all preparation for the choices you will start to make in Year 9.

Use the year to explore different careers, listen to the informative documentaries more often and of course read, read and read a bit more. Then after you have done all this, spend a bit of time in prayer thanking God for all he has given you.

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100: 2,4)
