Today we gather to celebrate the end of the academic calendar in a year of wonders and challenges. We also take this opportunity to recognise the successes, strength, resilience and passion exhibited by our young women in 2021. So much has been achieved, both academically and more broadly, by our students who have had the courage to dream big and to strive to reach for personal and community stars.
Today our Year 7, 8 and 9 students were treated to a day of fun cultural activities and performances to allow students to appreciate the cultural diversity in our community and society.
In today’s special liturgy the student's encountered the Christmas Story from the Gospels, where the star of Bethlehem inspired the wise men from the East to travel to Jerusalem for the birth of Jesus. In the first reading, the students heard from the Book of Isaiah. Isaiah was a prophet or Messenger of God who lived before the time of Jesus, which is very significant. In this passage they heard about God’s servant who will be supported and loved by God, who will act through the Holy Spirit, who will not be boastful and who will bring justice to the entire world.
