Fr Jamie Calder SJ led the Retreat on 'Fidelity at the Heart of Right Action'.
This was a three day residential retreat experience which offered Principals a series of meditations on the theology of interpersonal power. Sharing the Eucharist each day was a highlight, as was the opportunity to meet and host many of our Sponsors over Dinner on the last night.
Andrew Pierson, Operations Manager for Lighthouse Books (incorporating KW Wholesalers) visited Cabra Dominican College recently to present a cheque to our Treasurer, Brian Schumacher, and Executive Officer, Lou Flint.
The cheque represented the company's continued Platinum Sponsorship of our Association for the next two years. APCSS is very grateful to Lighthouse Books and to all our other sponsors. Such support makes it possible for the Association to involve itself in a range of professional development activities that would otherwise be outside its reach.

APCSS recently farewelled Rosalie Gleeson as she retired as Principal of Loreto College at the end of Term 1.
At the annual Combined Principals and DEPSLA gathering (which coincidentally was hosted by Rosalie at Loreto), the Chair of APCSS Pam Ronan, in wishing Rosalie well in this next phase of her life journey, thanked her for her contribution to APCSS, but more importantly for her contribution to Catholic Education and to education in SA throughtout her career.
At the same time we take this opportunity to welcome Dr Sylvia Walton AO, Executive Principal of Loreto, to our Association. Best wishes, Sylvia!
A great meal in a stately room followed the recent APCSS Meeting at Sacred Heart College Senior in September.
The Dinner held at the end of May was a wonderful occasion. Over 75 past and present principals, and their partners, plus some of our valued sponsors attended in the new Cathedral Room at the Adelaide Oval venue.
A former member of APCSS and colleague of many of those present, Bishop Greg O'Kelly was the guest speaker, and entertained people with his reflections on his time as a principal in our system.
