Principal’s Desk – 7 March 2019

Our Lenten journey began this week with Ash Wednesday and all students participated in class liturgies where ashes were distributed and the Lenten season introduced. Students were reminded that:

“Lent is a time when we pray, act kindly and with mercy towards other people, give up things we enjoy and give to others, as we prepare to celebrate the great feast of Easter… (It) is a time of hope as we renew our relationship with God… (when) we are also making our journey with families around the world living in poverty, especially those who are unable to earn enough money to have the basic things they need like an education, medicine, food or clothing.
