This year the theme is: Discovering New Horizons.
There are many things we can celebrate during Catholic Education Week. It is what we do every day in shaping and guiding children to live, love and learn in Christ, that is high on that list. During CEW the students were involved in random acts of kindness, letter box drops around our community, and postcards to our Defence Force members who are away from their families. Sometimes a simple kind gesture, such as these can make a huge difference in peoples’ lives.
Every year in CEW, OLD students create a message of kindness and deliver it to our neighbours. We are very proud of our tradition!
On 27 July some OLD students attended the Year of Youth Rally at the Cathedral of St Stephen’s. This year marks 175 years since the Catholic Church was established in South East Queensland. To celebrate, a rally was organised to gather young people from all Catholic schools to lift the roof off the Cathedral with their singing!
Following our Mass we enjoyed a whole school picnic morning tea on the oval with all parents invited to join us, for a shared morning tea on the deck.
