Principal's Reflection of 2016

This Term has seen a number of services and celebrations for the students in their different year groups. Year 12 students attended a moving Graduation Mass and Awards Ceremony at St Christopher’s Cathedral and we have also had a wonderful celebration with students and their families at the Formal held at the Arboretum on what was a magnificent night. We had a beautiful Advent Mass for Year 7 to 10 students. With a special Award Ceremony the following day for our Year 10 students who had just completed a week of service in our community.

Christmas Message from the Principal

As we celebrate the birth of our Lord, may we share with others the love He came to bring through his birth. Make sure you celebrate your life by living it as best you can. This means being the best person you can be, true to yourself; using your gifts and sharing them with others. It means being ready to make the best of all the opportunities you are given to learn and to grow. Life is a precious gift that God has given us, so precious that God sent Jesus to show us how to live the best life we can. If we look at how Jesus lived, we see that His life was about loving.
