Yesterday Joel Margaria, Evelyn Arundell, Joanna Negus and Harry Court from Year 6 attended the official launch of LifeLink Day. Our students had the privilege of meeting Most Rev Timothy Costelloe Archbishop of Perth, Most Rev Donald Sproxton Auxiliary Bishop of Perth and Dr Tim McDonald Director of Catholic Education in WA.
All Catholic Primary schools this year have been asked to support the “Open Your Hearts to People in Need” campaign. Every student was given a paper heart and encouraged to write a personal message, a prayer or a picture for people in need. At this launch, all the individual ‘LifeLink Day Hearts’ which all the schools had produced were displayed in one gigantic heart on the oval at Newman College - a powerful visual representation of how we work together, as one Catholic family, to reach out to those in need.
Our school enthusiastically supported this project and the students from Kindy to Year 6 had a lot of fun doing so. Later in the term we will have a fundraising event to support LifeLink agencies.
Next week I will be enjoying a week’s Long Service Leave. Please contact the Primary Assistant Principals, Ms Allen or Miss Joyce if you have any concerns.
All parents are welcome to come along to the Year One Assembly on Friday 16 June commencing at 9am in Roncalli Hall.
