On Monday this week Sister Nok returned to Thailand to take up a new Principalship after four years living here in Australia.
Once Sister gets her bearings again we will be in touch with her to see how we can support her new school, which provides an education for poor children coming from village families in Thailand.
Education is perhaps the single most influential factor in supporting people to change their own lives for the better. We are so fortunate here in Australia to have such excellent access to educational opportunities. Playing a small part in helping others to do the same, is both a privilege and a responsibility.
Sister Nok sends her love and very best wishes to children, staff and families and wants you all to know how much she appreciated our warmth, love and care, as we of course valued hers.
The last two First Holy Communion Masses are to be held this weekend on Saturday 6th September at 6.30pm and Sunday 7th September at 9am.
On behalf of the Yr 4 class teachers, the staff and the Parish Catechists we would like to take this opportunity of congratulating all students and families for their nurture and support in wisely guiding their children in faith and life. May the Bread of Life continue to nourish you along your journey!
