In the lead up to ANZAC Day and our nation’s special anniversary commemorations, the College remembers and prays for the men and women who lost their lives in the service of their country. We are mindful of the families and friends who mourn their loss and we pause to pray for people everywhere who suffered or continue to suffer through war. The College community will honour ANZAC Day and our service men and women, past and present, with all the dignity and respect we can attest.
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.
