ANZAC DAY - We remember
Last Monday, ANZAC Day, gave us an opportunity to commemorate and remember those who have fought and represented our country, many paying the ultimate sacrifice of their life. St Joseph’s was well represented at the Ashgrove Memorial March where we laid a wreath on behalf of our whole school community. We continued our reflection here at school on Tuesday morning when we gathered for our own commemorative liturgy. Our students participated so respectfully and with holy reverence throughout the liturgy, really demonstrating their understanding of the importance of this occasion. Each class made a wreath in their classrooms last week which was laid during our liturgy, in memory of those who gave their lives in defence of our country. A very special mention needs to made here of Isabella P, Year 6, who played the “Last Post” during our service. It was so moving and awe inspiring to have the “Last Post” played live by one of our own students. Thank you Isabella.
MOTHER'S DAY LITURGY
We would like to invite all our mothers, grandmothers, family and friends to join us on Friday 6 May at 8:40am for our special Mother’s Day liturgy in our school hall. We will celebrate the gift of our mothers and acknowledge all that they do for us each and every day. Our Preppies will help lead our liturgy and have invited their mothers to join them afterwards in the prep classrooms for some special pampering time.
