Opening Mass


On Friday 10 February, as a school community, we celebrated our Beginning of the Year Mass. It was a wonderful and significant celebration to join together as a school family and welcome the strong start we have had to the year.

Our School Theme Discovering sacred moments every day, has been a significant touch stone for each class as we connect with the Religious Life of our School. Our School Theme was visually present at Mass with a procession of class symbols connecting to our theme created by each class.

The pot plant symbolises the sacredness of our planet, and the hands represent our commitment to looking after the environment for all future generations.

Our Year Six students were very excited to receive their badges at our School Opening Mass Their commissioning as student leaders is the culmination of a long journey at O.L.D. We are very proud of them and have no doubt that they will take their leadership responsibilities very seriously.
