Dear Parents, Friends, Staff, and Students
The students and staff have enjoyed the various activities for our Week of Wellness. Pyjama Day was a big hit! The visit by Liturgical Musician, Michael Mangan, was a special treat, as were the Milo Mornings and the opportunity to wear sports uniforms every day.
Our students enjoyed the visit from acclaimed Liturgical Musician, Michael Mangan. Michael had the students singing and doing actions to songs they were familiar with. He also introduced a few new songs, which we are looking forward to singing in Masses and Liturgies. Michael commented afterwards on just how well the students sing. Their voices were in fine form, and we are proud of our strong singing culture.

The lost property box continues to astound me. There are jumpers, tracksuit jackets, lunch boxes and drink bottles, all un-named, waiting to be collected. Please take the time to double-check the lost property box, prior to the end of the term. All clothing not claimed will be donated to the second-hand uniforms in the Uniform Centre. Please check that your child’s name is on all clothing and belongings.

Making Jesus Real – Cheerfulness
The MJR value for the final weeks of the term is Cheerfulness. We see so many examples of our students’ cheerfulness throughout each day. We have so much to be grateful for – cheerfulness should be an easy value for us to live.
Hear my prayers for happiness and grant me everlasting joy and eternal life in your kingdom.
Allow me to discover life and spread your word with my friends and family.
Take away all the sorrow with your mighty power and let the morning sunshine light my path and give me all the reason to live and rejoice in the abundant life here on earth.
Lord, with your loving kindness, fill my spirit.
Best wishes for the weekend.
