On Holy Thursday, College Principal, David Mezinec served up hot cross buns to students who attended breakfast club before school. Students enjoyed the treat of not only the hot cross buns, but also the novelty of their Principal making them breakfast!
Holy Thursday also saw Year 6 and 7 students involved in the Project Compassion Middle School Caritas A-thon. Students and staff set off up the Sugar Loaf trail to raise money for Caritas. During Lent, Religion classes learnt about the vital work of Caritas throughout the world and the difference our fundraising can make to the lives of others.
Students were also asked to reflect as they walked, on the difficulties many children throughout the world experience on their journey to school. It was a fun and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
Could students please be reminded to return money from their sponsored walk to Ms Lloyd in the Library by Friday 6 April. Donors using the Caritas website instead will recieve a tax receipt. Visit the link here.
The Paschal candle was lit for the first time at the Easter Vigil Mass at St Paul’s Church on Saturday night. Easter is the most significant event in the Church year, and the weekend saw various celebrations and commemorations, as we moved into Joy Week this week.
Joy Week brings many activities around the college, with classes celebrating in a variety of ways. There is certainly a sense of joy and celebration around the College grounds and within classrooms. We will continue the joyful celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus throughout the 50 days of the Easter season.
