Mater Dei was delighted to welcome ABC local radio personality, Nick Rheinberger to our school on Friday 22 May.

Nick spoke to Frank Pitt our principal and our students, teachers and tuck-shop parents during his visit. He also had a tour of our school and was invited to take part in a dance lesson where he showed our students how well he could do the twist and dance to Abba's greatest hits.

Mater Dei was featured on Nick's Drive Program on Friday afternoon where Nick interviewed Frank about the school and he talked to Rowena Kennedy, one of our secondary teachers, about teaching at Mater Dei. Nick also interviewed David Leadbeatter and Dianne Beers who were parents doing tuck-shop on this day and he talked to Phoebe from Secondary A about being a student at Mater Dei. Nick finished his interview by talking to Debbie Gates, our Development Program Manager, about the support Mater Dei gets from our local community and the great work that we do in the area of special education.

This was a very exciting day and we were thrilled to hear Mater Dei being featured on the radio the same afternoon. We think we have a few budding radio personalities and we were delighted to tell people a little about the wonderful students, staff and parents that we have at Mater Dei.
