I warmly welcome you to the 2017 school year and hope and pray that you have all had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. I am very excited to be joining the Bosco community and having the opportunity to work such dedicated, caring professionals.
Pope Francis has dedicated 2017 as the year where we reflect on the wonderful things God has provided us with through the quote from Luke:
"The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is His name."
Here at St John Bosco we are so privileged to have the legacy of Don Bosco and the incredible works he did for the youth. Continuing in this tradition I look forward to how we will bring this vision to life for all our students, you the parents and the wider parish community.
Our theme for 2017 is AIMING HIGH- through Achieving more, Inspiring others and Making a Difference. As the year unfolds we will help the students to make this an achievable goal so that they can see that they too can achieve anything if they put their minds to it and have high expectations of themselves but also of each other.
Please join us for our weekly prayer assembly on Monday morning at 9am. Each class will have the opportunity to lead this assembly as well as raise the flag and acknowledge birthdays and other special events.
I look forward to meeting you throughout the year and working to ensure our students receive the best possible education we can provide.
With kindest regards
