"It was fantastic to share with the (Vietnamese) students and staff our passion for music," says Year 11 student Gabby. The group visited several cities in Vietnam and along the way performed at six international schools, where local students indulged in speaking English beyond the text book. St Aloysius College head of music Jonathon Rice says the trip, the first for the school to Vietnam, was "about giving the girls a chance to perform internationally and experience the culture first hand". PRINCIPALS' PARTY: About 75 past and present Catholic secondary school principals including Richard Ralston, Sr Teresita Cormack, Joy Bedford, Peter Daw, Debbie Daw and Sr Margaret Lamb celebrated a night of reminiscing at the inaugural "Past Principals' Dinner" held at the Adelaide Hilton recently. Event organiser -- the Association of Principals of Catholic Secondary Schools (APCSS) -- is hoping the dinner will become biennial. PUPPY LOVE: Nazareth students have been helping to train Labrador Retrievers to be assistance dogs for the visually- impaired as part of the Labs 'n Life program. The program also teaches the students leadership skills and personal responsibility. During the 10- week program the students completed a course that included dog body language, measurement and care, journal writing and the history of the Labrador breed.
