What’s Been Happening in Religious Education

Prayer for HSC Students

On Thursday (first day of HSC), we invited staff and Year 12 students to attend the Chapel for a prayer service to mark the beginning of the HSC exams and to ensure that our students know that they are in our thoughts and prayers during what can be considered a very stressful time for them.  These exams are now well and truly underway with many students having completed a number of their exams.

During this time, I would invite you all to offer the following prayer for our girls, and indeed all students undertaking their exams at this time.

 

Gracious God, some of our students are anxious,

worried, or tense about exams;

we ask You to grant them the gifts of peace

and calm during this time.

Help them to do their best so that they can

reap the rewards of their study.

Help them also to be true friends

and a support to one another.

Allow them to give You the gift of their work,

so that they can use their talents now

and in the future in Your service.

We ask through Christ our Lord.

Amen

 

Year 7 Spirituality Day

On Friday 2 November, all of our Year 7 students will be attending their Spirituality Day at St Mary MacKillop Parish Hall, Rockdale.   The focus of the day will be the Year 7 Gospel value of “Relationships”. Permission notes will be sent home this week and I would be very grateful if they are all returned prior to Wednesday 31 October.
