Providing diverse pathways to meet the wide ranging needs of students we serve


Term 1 has been a busy and productive time for staff and students and as we enter Lent, we take time to stop, reflect and prepare for Easter.  Catherine McAuley, the Catholic Sister who founded the Sisters of Mercy in Dublin would say, “The simplest and most practical lessons I know is to resolve to be good today, but better tomorrow,” and this reminds us to bring comfort, compassion, and mercy to those around us, especially during the Lenten season.

The Year 12 Religion and Ethics class drew witness to this in the lead up to Lent with their leadership at the Shrove Tuesday pancake charity event.  Students’ handmade pancakes, set up stalls, served students and staff, and raised money for the people of Nepal by donating the profits to Project Compassion.  This is a lived example of our students modelling the words of Sister Catherine McAuley, “They were good today, for a better tomorrow.”  I am humbled that the students better tomorrow was created for others and this gives me so much hope for the future.
