End of Term 2 Mass celebrating the Feast of Sacred Heart

Feast of the Sacred Heart occurs on Friday 23rd June. As a school, we will be celebrating this special Feast Day at our End of Term Mass on Friday 30th June at 9:30am. At our End of Term Mass, we will celebrate the love that Jesus has for us and the love and compassion we are called to show to others, especially those who are most in need. Our Social Justice Leaders will be reading at the Mass and the whole school will be attending. The School Choir, led by Anita, will be singing during our Mass. We would like to extend an invitation to our wider Galilee community to join us at Mass and in celebrating the Feast of the Sacred Heart. We hope to see lots of you join us  for our End of Term Mass at 9.30am on Friday 30th June at Ss. Peter and Paul Church.

Prayer to the Sacred heart of Jesus

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,

I adore you, I love you

and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer you this poor hear of mine.

Make me humble, patient and pure.

Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.

Protect me in the midst of danger.

Comfort me in my afflictions.

Give me health of body and your blessing on all that I do.


First Eucharist

We would like to congratulate all students who received the Sacrament of Eucharist for the first time last Saturday at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. It was wonderful to see so many families and staff at Mass to witness this special occasion in the faith journey of our students. We would like to thank the parents, parish staff and Year 4 teachers who prepared the children so well.

'In the Catholic tradition, the central celebration is the Eucharist. It nourishes and deepens our unity, our fellowship, by eating and drinking together and reflecting on our great stories. Celebrating the Eucharist is a way of entering into Jesus' challenge to be transformed, like him, to a qualitatively different kind of life. This is a challenge to the community to be changed ourselves as well as to be transformers of the world in which we live',

Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Mass

On Tuesday 18 July from 9:30am, we will be celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel with a whole school Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Middle Park.  

According to the traditions of the Carmelite order, on July 16, 1251, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to St. Simon Stock, a Carmelite. During the vision, she revealed to him the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, popularly known as the “Brown Scapular.” A century and a quarter later, the Carmelite order began to celebrate on this date the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.


The Year 5 students will be reading at the Feast Day Mass and the whole school will be attending.  We would like to extend the invitation to all within our community to join us at this special Mass. Students will be travel by bus to and from the Church the morning of the Mass. Information regarding travel to and from the Mass will be sent home via CareMonkey. 

Social Justice Winter Appeal

The Social Justice Leaders are in the middle of collecting donations for their Winter Appeal. They are asking all in our community to give what they can. They are collecting non-perishable foods such as canned food. Each class has a box for you to put your donations into. There is also a tub in the office. Donations will be accepted up until Thursday 29th June. We thank everyone who has donated to help those in need within our community.


We thank everyone who has supported these initiatives in our school and parish life.


We wish you many blessing in the week ahead,
