MAD Day Review

MAD Day last Friday followed a tried and true formula with the usual encouraging results. We began the day with a liturgy and followed that up with the inter house haka competition. This year's haka champions being Loreto. Students and staff then undertook the sponsored walk which was topped off with the traditional sausage lunch.

Under the guidance and encouragement of the college leaders the students have managed to raise well over $20,000. This will be going to support the work of the Lasallian Foundation as well as Br Bill and Sister Rosa's work in the Southern Sudan.

You want to mention Denis Loft as well when talking about South Sudan. The man's level of industry is surprising for someone in their 60's, in such harsh conditions. He nearly died from a combination of malaria and typhoid recently. The levels of formal humility amongst the brothers often seems strange to an outsider. Neverthless I feel he deserves a mention, if only for the amount of driving that he does around a huge, hot land, over shocking roads, at danger from military and pseudo-military bands at checkpoints and things. And all to supervise the teaching of maths to locals in the region.
