Newsletter Weeks 8 & 9 Term 2

Virtue of the Fortnight : Courage

Our Virtue of the Fortnight is courage. We have focussed this week with the children on having courage to stand up to bullies, not joining in when others are unkind and not excluding others. Jesus is the ultimate example of courage as he was faithful during the midst of trial and the action of the cross.

We pray for our students receiving the Sacrament of the First Eucharist this Sunday.Thank you to Miss Giorgia for your time and energy taken in preparing the students for this important sacrament and ceremony on Sunday.
