classesresume2016Jan27.jpgFollowing the events of last night, I would like to pass on a sincere thank you to all of the parents, friends and extended family who were able to join us to help celebrate our annual Awards Evening. The students did an incredible job of reading, singing and dancing. It was an absolute pleasure to share such a lovely evening in our school grounds. I would love for any members of our school community to catch me over the next week and let me know of the elements that you really enjoyed, and how we might be able to make any adjustments for next year.



Advent - This Sunday we celebrate the beginning of the Church’s liturgical year with the commencement of Advent. The Advent season is one of great celebration and anticipation. This Advent we focus on the many and varied ways our God acts in us, in our lives and in our world. Our God is an unexpected God. The way God encounters us and is revealed to us often occurs in extraordinary and totally unexpected ways. This Advent Season may we be open to God in whatever ways God so wishes to reveal God’s self to us.

Advent wreath - The Advent wreath is a symbol of growth and life. Traditionally adorned with purple and pink candles, it reminds us of the power of the Light of Christ overcoming evil in the world. The circle symbolizes the continuity of life. The four candles symbolise Hope, Service, Love and Peace – we take the time to show these values to others during the season of Advent.

Advent in your home - During the season of Advent, the beginning of the Church’s liturgical year, families may like to take the time to complete the Advent Calendar of Actions together. This is one way in which you can prepare the way for Christmas, have time with God and actively live out the message of the Gospel. Please see the current newsletter for the Advent Calendar of Actions.
