Thank you for the water that fell from the sky today
to quench the parched earth
to give drink to the thirsty trees
to fill the creeks and rivers
to swell the lake
Thank you, heavenly Father, for the gifts you give us all
For the often forgotten gifts of health
For the joy of sports
For the ability to walk and run
I saw a jogger today, Lord, running in the rain
His legs were stretched out
His back was straight
His arms pumping
His lungs breathing
What a gift!
O' that we may run in this day with the gifts we have from you,
the passing gifts we take for granted.
O' that we may use the gifts of heart, soul, mind and body,
That you gave us, Lord Jesus.

Please come and visit your child in their classroom so they can show you their fabulous writing. You will see the work that has been published as well as work in progress.
We welcome all parents and carers to this party.
Parents are invited to stay and eat lunch with their children after the Publishing Party or return to the school for the Passion Play at 2.30pm in the school hall.
Every student will have a special role in depicting the Passion of Jesus Christ: his trial, suffering and death. This story is the centre of our Catholic Christian faith and we are very proud to be re-enacting this sacred story.
We welcome all parents, grandparents and carers to our Passion Play 2019.
