Term 4 Week 6 - Thursday 16 November, 2023
Prayer to Christ the King
Lord our God,
You alone are the Most Holy King and Ruler of all nations.
We pray to You, Lord, in the great expectation of receiving from You, O Divine King, mercy, peace, justice and all good things.
Protect, O Lord our families and the land of our birth.
Guard us, we pray, Most Faithful One.
Protect us from our enemies and from Your Just Judgment.
Forgive us, O Sovereign King, our sins against you.
Jesus, You are the King of Mercy.
We have deserved Your Just Judgment.
Have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us.
We trust in Your Great Mercy.
O most awe-inspiring King, we bow before You and pray;
May Your Reign, Your Kingdom, be recognised on earth.
Annual Community Meeting
There was a very good turn out at the Annual Community Meeting last night and I would like to thank our community for their support.
It has been a big year and it was great to highlight some of our achievements throughout 2023. 2024 promises to be another exciting year with staff changes and future projects that will add another dimension to our school.
Congratulations to Paul Martin for his successful re-nomination for the School Advisory Council in 2024. Our Advisory Council is a very committed group who have the best interests of the school at heart and are a wonderful support to me.
With Kath Anthony stepping down from the P&F committee there is still one place available for someone who would like to be involved in our fundraising and friend-raising efforts. Please come and have a chat if you are interested.
