OPENING SCHOOL MASS
Last Thursday we celebrated a wonderful opening School Mass to mark the beginning of this year of“Growing together in communion with God, each other and all of creation.”. Congratulations to all our Year 6 students who were blessed in their leadership role and for those who were installed as Sports Captains, Student Councilors and our School Captains, Alistair and Annabelle. We look forward to a great year of growing together.
Our Lenten season begins next Wednesday with our Ash Wednesday Liturgy at 9:00am in the church. Please join us if you can to begin this important liturgical season as we reflect over the next few weeks on what it means for us individually and as a community to be followers of Jesus. It is time to renew our commitment to the Gospel, to deepen our understanding of God working our lives and to strengthen our outreach to others. You will notice the change in class prayer table cloths to purple as a sign that we are in a new liturgical season.
CRAZY SOCK DAY
We were pleased to welcome Mrs Maureen Thornton to St Edward's on Friday. Maureen is the President of the local St Vincent de Paul Conference. Alistair and Annabelle presented her with $410 raised from "Crazy Sock Day”. Maureen was very grateful for our ongoing support for their work. Watch this space for future opportunities to support the St Vincent De Paul.
TOGETHER WE GROW IN 2017
Our school motto is "Together WE grow".
