Catholic Schools Week 2021

Dear School Community ,

As we live through an unprecedented time of challenge and uncertainty, our faith and our resilience can be tested. We can ask questions like ‘Will things ever be the same again?’, ‘When can we get back to normality?’, ‘Where is God in all of this?’ In response to this, we reflect upon how our Catholic schools are communities of faith and resilience. In our school, we are called to support each other and to have faith in the promise of the Good News. Catholic schools are inspired by the belief that God has created each one of us with a capacity to give love and receive love. This love is bound in faith and is more resilient than any virus. While each Catholic school is such a community, our school fosters the holistic development of its students, promotes their wellbeing and offers them cultivation of a deeper, loving relationship with God. Jesus teaches us to love one another as he has loved us. During Catholic Schools Week we celebrate the gifts and talents we have in following Jesus’ teaching.

This year we celebrate how we are called to be communities of faith and resilience, through our thoughts, words and actions, from our own locality, sharing time with siblings, our pets and our surroundings. In doing so, we live out the meaning of the beautiful hymn ‘Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est’ – ‘Where charity and love are, God is there.’

Here we share a selection of photos from our outside classroom reflections on the healing nature of our unique environment. Also images serve to highlight the need for scheduling time for time out and stopping to be grateful for what is just outside our door.
