Avila Day is celebrated on 15 October each year and it commemorates the Feast Day of Saint Teresa of Avila, the patron saint of the College.
The day began with a special Eucharist which provided the opportunity for members of the community to give thanks for all the blessings bestowed upon the Avila community. Special guests, parents and friends joined staff and students for the Mass which featured uplifting music and messages about friendship.
Stduents then competed in a challenging Trivia Quiz before enjoying a carnival with a jumping castle and a disco. There was a delicious range of food on offer. Avila Day is special because it allows everyone to stop and give thanks for being a part of such a special school community.
