2018 Term 3 Week 10
From the Principal
As Term Three draws to a close, one is tempted to think, ‘Where did that go?’! It seems to me that our Patronal Feast Day mass was only recently, but that is obviously not the case. I think the busyness of the term has really made it pass quickly. Having said that though, I am sure that students and staff are ready for a break and a chance to catch up on some rest.

Here the students shared those elements of life for which they were grateful, which we often overlook in our busy lives: the gift of family, our friends,... read more
