Multicultural Library Launch

We have launched a new multilingual section in the Library, significantly enhancing student growth and learning. With nearly 90% of students from Language Backgrounds Other Than English (LBOTE), these resources support educational and personal development by providing access to books in their first languages, helping maintain cultural heritage and improve proficiency in both their first language and English.

Funded by a grant from the Catholic Education Office, the multilingual library includes books in languages such as Punjabi, Hindi, Malayalam, Dinka, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Vietnamese, Arabic, and Turkish. The official launch event highlighted the community’s spirit, featuring older students reading to younger ones in various languages, followed by a celebration with cupcakes and a morning tea for parents and guests.


ANZAC Day 2024

ANZAC Day is a significant day in Australia and New Zealand that commemorates the brave soldiers who fought and served in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during World War I. It is a day to honor the sacrifice, bravery, and resilience of these soldiers, as well as all those who have served in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping missions.

ANZAC Day has developed as a day when we remember and honor the soldiers who protected our countries in all wars. These soldiers fought with great bravery and faced many challenges to keep us safe. We celebrate this day to show our respect and gratitude to them and to all the other soldiers who have protected our countries.

At school, we celebrated ANZAC Day with a simple and moving liturgy. This liturgy allowed us to come together as a school community and pay tribute to the soldiers who served our countries. It helped us understand the significance of ANZAC Day and inspired us to cherish the values of bravery, sacrifice, and peace in our own lives.  We were especially fortunate that the weather was fine and we were able to commemorate ANZAC Day in our beautiful garden space.
