Nora Monday was was the Delany College recipient of the 2017 Bishop of Parramatta Award for Student Excellence presented by Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv on Thursday 7 September.
The awards are given each year to an outstanding student in every Catholic secondary school in the Diocese of Parramatta. This year's awards were presented after vespers in St Patrick's Cathedral in Parramatta.
Delany’s Principal, Robert Muscat, said Nora had been a school leader who carried out her duties in a meticulous and committed manner at all times. “These leadership traits were also evident during the Diocese’s pilgrimage to World Youth Day 2016 in Poland when Nora represented the school,” he said.

Mr Muscat said Nora’s diligent application to her studies, her exemplary conduct as a school leader, her participation in extracurricular activities and her contribution to the school community made her a worthy recipient of the Bishop of Parramatta Award for Student Excellence.

15 Aug 2023From 29 July to 4 August Daniel Thwaites and his team (Ryde Hawks) played in the ‘2023 Senior Baseball League World Series’, held in Easley, South Carolina. Representing Australia, their first game was successful beating Latina America 3-1. Winning the next couple of games secured their place in the championship game. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be and the team went down by 4 runs to Mexico. The loss eliminated Ryde Hawks from contention at the World Series event.

World Youth Day Update #2 Lourdes Our WYD pilgrims arrived in the foothills of the Pyrenees and the small town of Lourdes. It was in this small town that Our Lady first appeared to St Bernadette in 1858. The pilgrims walked the Stations of the Cross before descending into Lourdes and celebrated their daily Mass at the Grotto – the site where young Bernadette experienced visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary. They later joined the Blessed Sacrament Procession and Blessing of the Sick before a final evening candlelight procession.

World Youth Day Update #1 During the last few days, our Delany WYD pilgrims visited many churches including Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. They immersed themselves in the stories of St Vincent de Paul and Saint Catherine Laboure, visiting the daughters of charity in the Rue du Bac. This is the site where Our Lady appeared to Catherine Laboure in 1830, with the first miraculous medal being struck in 1832. As they continue to explore this famous city, they will be soon going by train to Lourdes. Please keep them in your prayers as their World Youth Day journey continues. #parrawyd23

On Monday 5 June, Year 7 and 8 took part in their Reflection Day at St Joseph Conference Centre at Baulkham Hills. The theme for the day was 'Heroes' 🦸 Through the exploration of different heroes, what it means to be a hero and what it is that makes an individual a hero, students were able to reflect a little more deeply about themselves. Overall, a great day was had by all those involved.
