Education in Faith News
Congratulations to the Year 6 students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last Friday evening. They demonstrated great understanding of their faith and the Sacrament and received praise from both Fr Laurie and Bishop Elliott on the night. The Year 5/6 teachers did a wonderful job of preparing them.
At Assembly each week, our Year 6 Leaders begin with ‘Acknowledgement to Country’:
‘As we gather together we acknowledge the Elders, families and forebears of the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri tribes of the Kulin Nation who were the custodians of this land. We come together in peace and harmony respecting the dignity of each person’.
Commencing tomorrow is National Reconciliation Week, it’s about celebrating the First Australians and trying to make the country a more equal place. At St Joseph’s, we believe that we all deserve to feel trusted, valued and respected by all those around us.
