We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our parents, carers and grandparents to join with us as a Catholic school community to celebrate the Eucharist and receive the Ashes on Ash Wednesday, 26 February at 9.00am. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a time of repentance and renewal, of prayer and reflection, of seeking to renew and restore our relationship with Jesus and of striving to follow more closely in His footsteps. Receiving the Ashes signifies to one and all our intention to repent, to make sacrifices and changes in our lives in order to become better Christians. We would really love to see the church packed with as many parents as possible, so that you can not only share this Lenten journey with your children, but also set an example for them to follow.
Thank you to all the parents who came along to our Parent Information evening on Monday night. We hope this was an informative and worthwhile opportunity to find out about what will be happening over the course of the year in the classrooms and allow the opportunity for questions to be answered. Please remember to make an appointment to speak to your teacher should you ever have any questions or concerns.
As we conclude our school year, I feel blessed that we have managed to achieve so much and developed as a school community. So much learning, growth and development has taken place, creating students who I believe, will be valuable assets to our world. Even in this past week, our students have had many opportunities and experiences that assist in their development:
Many Christian churches in Australia, particularly Catholic churches, celebrated the start of the Advent season last Sunday. Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks leading up to Christmas – the birth of Jesus, so its length varies from 22 to 28 days.
Thank you to all the parents and staff who came along to our ACM last night. It was great to see so many parents come and support our school and hear about all the wonderful things that have happened over the past year and what is planned for the future.
The Year Six students had a wonderful time learning about the history of Western Australia and dome of the features found on Rottnest Island on their recent camp.
