Dear Parents, Friends and Families,
I want to begin, as we enter the final week with students, with a MASSIVE thank you to everyone supported our OLN Xmas Concert with Peter Kearney on Friday night. It was an amazing success, in which your children each shone brightly. Thank you also for your support of the Parent Council Christmas Raffle, which raised over $1200. Thanks particularly to Josephine, Chris and Lidia for your organisation and running of the raffle.
The week ahead is one where we get to continue celebrating our beautiful community, with lots of great events to participate in. We have Sunshine/Xmas Craft Day on Tuesday and our End of Year/Graduation Mass on Wednesday. Both days are awesome opportunities for us to celebrate our community and the year that has been 2017. You are all welcome to attend both events!
As we look towards 2018, we recall the little word Mary said to God:
As we continue to reflect on 2017 and prepare for 2018, let’s think about how we are going to say “YES!”
Yes O Yes! Saying Yes to……
Yes to the well spring of life that is each of us
Yes to life longing to be fulfilled in us
Yes to our generous and forgiving selves
Yes to our reaching out to another aware that all has been gift to us
Yes to those who confound us with their courage and trust in life
Yes to the good that lays claim to us and has left us saying yes to our courage
Yes to our assertive self to speak and embody our word of life
Yes to beauty to a life lived with passion and integrity
Yes to love, all ways love as we fashion the gift of this new time together
Let us always remember the ‘light’ we are and can be to others and appreciate the ‘light’ others are to us.
Thank you all again for everything you give to our community this year and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018!
