Today children from Year 1 – 6 attended the Ash Wednesday Mass and I distributed the ashes to Kindy and Pre Primary. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten period leading up to Easter. The ashes are made from palms used in the Palm Sunday celebration last year. The ashes are blessed with Holy Water and are scented with incense. The ashes are applied to the forehead in the shape of a cross and reminds us of our call to repent and believe in the Gospel as well as the will for change and the hope of forgiveness.
Our new collaboration with Lawley's Bakery running our canteen has had a very positive response from both parents and students. The variety of choice and quality of the food has exceeded expectations. Through the online canteen system you are able to pre order recess and lunch in advance, please be careful that you are selecting the correct date and not the following week. A reminder that canteen runs on a Wednesday and Friday each week. Orders must be placed by no later than 8am. Please find attached a current menu.
Pupil Free Day
A reminder that this Friday is a Pupil Free Day. Staff will be engaged in learning around the Western Australian Technologies Curriculum. This is a collaborative professional development between OLGC, St John's Primary school and Holy Spirit Primary School. I am sure it will be a day full of creative learning.
