Last Friday, the students of Holy Name Primary School welcomed the new school year by celebrating the induction of the new school leaders. The Year Six students received their leadership badges and announced their commitment to the Holy Name community with a promise statement.
‘We promise to work together to achieve the highest standards in all that we do; we will strive always to have respectful relationships with all that we meet, and encourage each other through all aspects of life.’
Congratulations and best wishes to the school leaders. There is much that they will learn and, in turn, contribute back to the school over the year in their roles. Thank you to Fr Darrell for presiding the Opening Mass and also the parents and parish for supporting the Year Six students as they take on the additional responsibility of leadership this year.
On Wednesday, 14th February, Holy Name community will gather for Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of the Church’s season of Lent; to spend time thinking about our call to be people of God during this time. Lent begins with the marking of ashes, a sign to remind us to live the way Jesus wants. Lent ends after 40 days when Jesus rises from the dead at Easter. Lent is a special time when God invites us to go without so that others may have a fair share of the gifts of creation. Lent is about changing ourselves and thinking of others. It is a time to take action and stand beside those in the margins. During this season of Lent, may we be mindful of the many gifts that are ours to enjoy and celebrate the great work of Caritas through their Project Compassion Campaign.
