Principal’s Message – Issue Thirty One


Be merciful to me, O God,
because of your constant love.
Because of your great mercy wipe away my sins.
Sincerity and truth are what you require, fill my mind with your wisdom.
Remove my sin, and I will be clean.
Create a pure heart in me, O God,
and put a new and loyal spirit in me.



Principal’s Message – Issue Thirty One

Sacrament of Penance

Last night, our Year 3 students and Parish candidates received the Sacrament of Penance. Father Ken and seven visiting priests led the children through their First Reconciliation. It was a very special night for all of the children and their families. Thank you to Mrs Peters, Mrs Musca and Miss Smith for preparing the students to receive this special sacrament and for organising a reflective and meaningful liturgy. Thanks also to Mr Leber for providing the music on the night.
