From The Deputy Principal

24.05.17

In recent weeks I have found myself engaged with the document “Theology of the Body” as I prepare to teach the Sacrament of marriage to Year 11 students. I think it is reasonable to suggest that whilst it is not a light read it does have the power to enlighten. The complexity of John Paul II's work cannot be summarised in one short newsletter article and I will not attempt to do so here. I do believe that it speaks powerfully about God’s presence in each person and each encounter. When we recognise that God exists in each other it reminds us of the sacredness of being human.

When I think back to Term 1 sport, many positive memories arise. From the excellent team work and respect our girls showed  for each other and other teams, the high level of skills that were displayed in Touch Football, Volleyball and Tennis and of course the many smiles and fun times had across all of our teams. I commend our players and coaches from Term 1 Sport on a successful season.
