Dear Members of the Villanova College Family,
As our Year 12 students prepare to enjoy their final days at Villanova College, I wish to acknowledge and thank the many families who will also conclude their association with the College this week. For many families all their sons have attended Villanova College and our association has spanned many years. I know for those families the sudden departure from College life will be the end of an important chapter. Thank you to those families who end their time with us. We have appreciated your ongoing support and contribution to our place and wish your family all the best for the future.
We keep in our prayers our Year 12 students and their families during this time of transition. It is a time of moving on and taking the necessary steps to leave what has been so familiar to push out into the adult world. I am confident our young men are well prepared for the future and will continue to live by the values of this College and their faith.
An Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen
Mr Mark Stower, Principal
In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, Villanova College acknowledges the Yuggera and Turrbal peoples, as the Traditional Custodians of this land on which we stand.
