From the Principal:
Last week our Grade 5 & 6’s gathered together with students from all our schools in the north to recognise and celebrate the impact and influence that out Catholic schools make in our schools and the wider communities. Catholic Education Week provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the strengths and achievements of all our 38 Catholic schools in Tasmania alongside all of the people who contribute to Catholic Education Tasmania’s ongoing success.
The theme for 2023 ‘Arise and go!’ inspires us to reflect on the journey of life that we are all on. We are all called to arise and make a positive impact in the lives of others. As Catholics, this journey begins and ends with God. Each moment on that journey is a chance to come to know and love God, who has been revealed to us in Jesus. We can feel God’s presence when we pray, when we spend time with loved ones, in nature, in moments of joy and when we come together as a community to celebrate God’s love at Mass. As we walk along our journey, God is with us every step of the way.
Every Catholic school seeks to help students along their journey, nurturing their gifts and talents. Each student is a reflection of God with the potential to make society a kinder and more just place for all.
Last week and every week, Catholic schools celebrate the unique contribution our schools make to the lives of our students, community and Church. As we journey together, may we always be inspired by the Holy Spirit to be all that God made us to be. May we talk together in faith and love.
