LATEST NEWS & EVENTS
Welcome back to term 2! Although a short week, it has certainly started with many exciting items on our agenda. This week we celebrate a significant day in the lives of many people and that is ANZAC DAY. Many of us have been touched in some way or another by this day particularly if we've had family members who have been part of this story. We thank the Lord for our blessings every day.
Enjoy your long weekend with family and friends! Regards, Donna
During the Easter break, Aylish, her Mum and Grandmother took part in the procession of Oils, at the Chrism Mass. At the Chrism Mass, the bishop blesses three oils— the oil of catechumens, the oil of the infirm and holy chrism— which will be used in the administration of the sacraments throughout the diocese for the year. As Aylish is taking part in our Sacramental Program, she was asked to take part in the procession. Thank you to Aylish and her lovely family for agreeing to participate and represent the school, during her holiday break.
For all of our students who have completed their 1st Reconciliation last term, next week we begin again with the second phase of the program. The Parent Information Session, to which the students are encouraged to attend, will be Thursday 1st May at either 3:30pm or 7pm at the Parish Centre. We strongly encourage parents to attend if at all possible. Cluster Groups will get underway in Week 3. Please consider if your Term 1 Cluster time still suits this term.
The Development Cup competition started on Wednesday the 23rd of April. The St Saviour's/St Thomas More's team played Mater Dei and came out winners 30-20.
