Principal’s Message – Issue Twelve

Prayer for Mother’s Day

Good and Gentle God,
we pray in gratitude for our mothers and for all the women of theory who have joined with you in the wonder of bringing forth new life. You who became human through a woman, grant to all mothers the courage they need to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.
Give them the strength to live and to be loved in return, not perfectly, but humanly.
Give them the faithful support of family and friends as they care for the physical and spiritual growth of their children.
Give them joy and delight in their children to sustain them through the trials of motherhood. Most of all, give them the wisdom to turn to you for help when they need it most.

Bubs Play at OLA

Expressions of interest are now open for a Bubs Playgroup to be held at OLA on Fridays. The playgroup will cater for children 0-4 years old. With the Bubs Play located on our school site there is the added benefit that children and families become familiar with the school environment and build relationships with staff, which benefits both families and the children. Please complete the online form by Friday 24 May to register your interest.
