In this year’s Australia Day Honours Awards, our former Principal, Julie Ryan, was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to secondary education. Julie has made significant contributions to Catholic Education for so many years and this is a richly deserved award.
The term break and the season of Easter come at a time when we are all deeply affected by the pandemic and its many challenging impacts. May the Easter days give us cause to reflect on the hope of the Resurrection and move us forward with faith. In the struggles of social distancing and cabin fever, may we also draw wisdom from the prose of Kitty O'Meara, who recently posted this reflection, titled ‘And the people stayed home’, on her blog, 'The Daily Round'.
