Reconciliation Week

​One of the most significant events on our calendar in Term 2 is Reconciliation Week, which runs from May 27th to June 3rd. Reconciliation Week holds deep meaning for many, offering a time for introspection, forgiveness, and renewal. It's a time for all Australians to come together to learn about our shared history, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

This year, we're excited to announce our participation in Reconciliation Week by wearing yellow on Wednesday May 29th. Yellow symbolises the sun, the giver of life, hope and optimism, and by wearing it, we're showing our support for reconciliation and raising money for Children's Ground, an organisation dedicated to supporting Indigenous children, families, and communities.

Alongside our ‘Wear it Yellow’ for reconciliation week we are thrilled to announce an upcoming event that holds profound significance for our community. St. Patrick's Parish is hosting a Reconciliation Week Mass on May 29th at 7 p.m. This gathering provides us with a wonderful opportunity to come together in unity and reflection. As we join in this sacred ceremony, let us embrace the spirit of reconciliation, seeking understanding and harmony within ourselves and among each other.

We encourage all members of our school community to mark their calendars for this special occasion. Whether you are a parishioner, a student, a parent, or a staff member, your presence and participation are invaluable as we come together to celebrate faith, forgiveness, and fellowship. We look forward to seeing you at the Reconciliation Week Mass on May 29th at 7 p.m. at St. Patrick's Parish. Together, let us embrace the power of reconciliation and the blessings of unity.
