I would like to first of all say a huge thank you to all students for their participation in our Holy Week liturgy on Tuesday afternoon and to the parents able to come along. We touched on the three major events leading up to Easter: Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday (the Last Supper) and Good Friday. Each class left the liturgy in complete silence to remember the passion and death of Christ on the cross.
This year, Easter falls on the last Sunday of the School holidays and we return to school after the Easter Monday holiday. We are still in the middle of Lent at the moment and we are going to celebrate Easter when we return from the holidays with an Easter Mass.
Our Easter Mass will be celebrated on Thursday April 20 at 9am with Father Moses.
On Tuesday, the library was adorned with the pottery that our Years 3 to 6 children have created with Gisela. These works of art were truly impressive, accompanied as they were by some very creative writing from the year 6 class. This has been a wonderful experience for the children and I am grateful to Gisela not just for her expertise but for the conscious links she made to Scripture and the Spiritual lives of the students. “I am the Potter, you are the Clay.” (Isaiah 64:8)
