Mission News

Term 3 has been a remarkable term in the history of our College including commencing our inaugural school NAIDOC celebrations, exploring our history and future at Where Dreams Begin at Southbank Piazza, celebrating our cultural diversity, fundraising for the Mighty 90 Cancer research and celebrating Fr Pan’s birthday (with cake) and his remarkable 18+ years of service to our community and his devotion to the Eucharistic table.

Jesus invited all to a meal with him because he wants us to belong and be encouraged that whenever we might not get things quite right, he would be there for us – challenging us, nurturing us, welcoming us and reinviting us again.  Jesus’ table fellowship shows us the way to being respectful, engaged members of our community who value all, including our abilities and differences.

Recently, I asked my students to give feedback on Term 3 in a different way, asking them to draw what my daily face looks like and what their own looks like.  A number of students used their gifts to illustrate those expressions.  Taliah Saylor created the picture below.  (I didn’t realise I was so red faced at times!)

This was a wonderful insight and reminded us that our gifts and difference are to be celebrated, nurtured and believed in!!!

Who will be invited to sit at your table this September holidays?
