Old Boys’ Union Donate Rosary Bracelets for Years 5 and 7

Year 7 Rosary OBU

Last Friday, the Old Boys’ Union generously donated Rosary bracelets to our Year 5 and Year 7 students in time for our annual May procession.

These beautiful wooden bead bracelets and ‘How to Say the Rosary’ cards, replaced the usual rosary beads, and were made by one of our Waverley parents, Rita Di Napoli, from Rita Palma Candles and Gifts. The Old Boys Union and Rita’s generosity in helping facilitate this, was greatly appreciated.

Each of these students will be able to wear these at school and beyond the Waverley gates, as a reminder that God is always close, and as a special devotion to Mary, just like our founder Blessed Edmund Rice.

The Year 7s were also treated to a BBQ by the Old Boys, and greatly enjoyed their afternoon.

Many thanks to everyone who made this possible.
