On the 5th of May, the Grade 5/6s participated in Ablaze in Shepparton at the Eastbank Centre. During this event we got to see Fr Rob Galea and his band and enjoy a rock concert! They talked to us about their experience with God and their divine encounters. We listened to Fr Rob as he played beautiful and wonderful songs and also participated in our first Adoration of the Holy Eucharist. Fr. Jackson led the adoration and finished off with a prayer. Afterwards, we all crossed the road and had lunch in the Queen’s Garden and learnt even more about William Cooper. The FIRE Carriers have been learning about William Cooper and the impact he made for Aboriginal people all over Australia. It was an awesome day!
Mother's Day Mass
On the Friday 6th May, just before Mothers Day, the first whole school Mass was held. It was the first one for over nearly two years. Fr Jackson came over from Shepparton to lead out the Mass. Students' parents (mostly mothers) came to watch and celebrate the beautiful Mass and be recognised for all the amazing things that mothers do. It was a wonderful Mass and the Prep/Gr.1 classes should be very proud of all the work they put into the Mass and for doing a fabulous job at being such great leaders! Afterwards we came back to school and had a great time participating in PPR, creating presents for our mums and those women who are very special in our lives.
