Last week we had a very busy week highlighting Catholic Schools Week, but more importantly our wonderful school.

Monday - The week started with a ‘Prayer Square’ to launch CSW and our theme for 2014 ‘Stay Sharp … Make your Mark.

Tuesday - The Sport Captains led Sport for Justice during break time, a great initiative from our leaders that was very well received by the younger students. Thank you to our school Sport Captains who organised and ran this event. The smiles on the faces of the students who participated in this event showed just how much fun they had!

– Professor Maths visited and provided the students with fantastic hands on mathematical learning experiences that were challenging and fun.

– We celebrated Mass as a whole with Fr Maurice Thompson .Thank you Fr Maurice. Following this we had a very successful open morning for families seeking enrolment in 2015. Many of the visitors commented on the warm welcome they received from our student leaders as they were escorted around the school and they appreciated the hospitality and that was provided by the P&F. Thank you to the parents who took up the invitation to attend the Maths Workshop and Art Show, your support is always welcome and valued by staff and students.

We also marked International Women’s Day through our annual Project Compassion Art Competition. The theme for this year’s art competition was “Inspiration Women”. All who visited the exhibition last Friday would agree that it was fantastic to see such diverse and original artworks. Thank you to all of the students and teachers who worked so hard to create artworks for this year’s competition. Thank you especially to our teachers who put in a few hours of overtime after school on Thursday to make sure that our exhibition was ready for the Grand Opening on Friday morning.
