Last Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day; a time to recognise the many sacrifices that our fathers make to help us become who we are. A good father is one who has strong values and promotes ideals for which to strive. A good father gives good example about hard work and striving for goals. A good father cares and gives time.

We wish all Year 12 students the best of luck as they prepare for their trial HSC examinations which commence on Monday 1st August (Week 3). These exams make up an important component of each student’s school assessment marks for their HSC. They also serve as a valuable indicator of student progress towards their HSC exams in October/November. The rest of the school community can support our Year 12s over the next two weeks of their examinations by praying for their success.

"The Easter message of the risen Christ," said Pope Francis, "a message of life for all humanity, echoes down the ages and invites us not to forget those men and women seeking a better future, an ever more numerous throng of migrants and refugees – including many children – fleeing from war, hunger, poverty and social injustice."
