Last Saturday night saw the first of our children from Years 3, 4 and 6, who will receive either the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharist or Confirmation, along with the support of their families, commit to the Sacramental program for 2014. This is a special time for us all as we continue to ask ourselves – how can I be the hands, the feet, the eyes, the body of Jesus in my everyday life?
Representative Staff members, School Board and P&F members were also commissioned in their roles for 2014. As leaders in our school community, we ask that God will continue to guide and nourish us in our important work.
Last Wednesday, 19th March 2014, was our first GANNON HOUSE DAY ! Sr Margaret Mary Gannon was our VIP and she joined us at our mini House assembly, where she received her very own Gannon House shirt and some beautiful flowers, that were bright orange of course! Children thoroughly enjoyed their shared lunch and team games and it was all capped off with a delicious orange icy-pole – ah, life is good!
All the best for the year ahead Gannon House!
