We celebrated International Women’s Day on Wednesday. Our Principal, Ms Barbara Watkins, shared at a staff breakfast about the great women in her life who shaped her to be the person she is today. Barbara also spoke of the rich story of Catholic education in Australia and shared one of her favourite quotes on women by Mary Ward, founder of the Loreto schools: There is no such difference between men and women that women may not do great things. I hope in God it will be seen that women in time will do much. Women should and can provide something more than ordinary.

Today’s House Athletics Carnival was won by Campion House. The day was full of enjoyment and Regis House was awarded the House spirit. We are grateful for the work by our Sports Office, our House staff, and student leaders in organising this special event in our calendar.

This week we were reminded that Lent is a time to consider the following questions: What do I hope to do during Lent this year? How can I make a difference to those around me this Lent? Who can I be for those less fortunate than me?
