National Reconciliation Week commences on 27 May. It is a week that provides us with the opportunity to reflect on our relations with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The OLMC community will be marking this week in several ways. Our efforts will be both symbolic and practical and will be sustained beyond next week. Watch this space – the Latest News page in particular – for reports on how the College is upholding its commitment to Reconciliation.
The Christian celebration of Easter is one of hope. It symbolically reminds us that after every night comes a new day, after darkness comes light. May the spirit of hope that Easter brings inspire renewed energy, new goals and strengthened resolve for all who visit this site. And may the Easter and term break be a safe and restful time for students, staff and families.
This week we have extended a special welcome to the Year 7s and to staff and families new to the College. We have also enjoyed the buzz and energy of returning students. February is traditionally one of the busiest months in the College calendar and 2015 is no exception. Our hope is that all community members, new and old, will have many blessed moments in the weeks ahead. May we all experience healthy doses of delight, challenge, pride, achievement, encouragement and laughter, and may each and all of these experiences keep us refreshed and renewed.
