INQUISITOR HIGHLIGHTS Nov/Dec
You may remember from Sean O’Hare’s speech that the Christ the King statue was refurbished after it arrived from North Carolina many years ago. Well, it so happens that the statue has undergone a second refurbishing by Mrs. Belcea-Barbara mother of sophomore Manuel. The picture in the Inquisitor shows that it is beautifully done.
Life Skills classes continue for the 7th graders. Mrs. Wittman leading the girls and Mr. Pennefather the boys. 7th grader Max Weidenkopf changed the tire on Mrs. McDonald’s Mustang; Dani Flook likes sewing because she can now make purses and things for her little sisters.
1st year teacher Miss Faur is going to be taking a group of sophomores on a mission trip to Honduras in July.
Seniors Philip Wykowski, Thomas Aveni and Peter Salomon are part of the Greater Manassas Volunteer Rescue Squad and have had to break down a door to get to a man who had called for help and assisted a man who had been stabbed in Georgetown South.
Seton’s Sub Club cleaned up at the regional contest winning the top three spots out more than 30 competing teams. In fact, Seton’s junior high teams who were not eligible for awards also beat all the other high school teams so Seton actually had the five best teams.
Hamlet night had its 18th anniversary production with the Seniors acting out various scenes from the Shakespeare tragedy. James Majewski, of the Class of ’08, is currently set to play the lead in Albert Camus’ Les Justes at the Washington Shakespeare Co. this spring.
Alumna Olivia Aveni, Class of 2009, founded the Seton Teenage Republicans Club while in high school. She has gone on to manage the successful re-election campaign for State Senator Dick Black who once was Seton’s commencement speaker. She is now working on Delegate Bob Marshall’s campaign. Here’s in part what Olivia had to say in her interview for the newspaper: “Seton is an awesome place…the debates in English class, the pro-life speeches; they will really prepare you for your life outside of Seton. I hope you all never forget how amazing the education and formation you get at Seton will be for any future jobs you undertake. I am constantly thinking back to the days of my senior religion class with Mrs. Carroll for quick references to moral teachings of the Church.”
Seton’s senior play, Backstage, a comedy, was performed to rave reviews. Senior Sarah Zapiain directed the 21 actors.
Semester tests end tomorrow. Annie Tohill and Sarah Blanchard debate whether it would be better to have semester exams before Christmas.
We’ll look forward to the January issue.
Jezu, ufam Tobie.
