Prayer for the Week
This Sunday, 14 May, we will celebrate Mother’s Day
Let us take this time this week to think about the different things that our mothers do for us each and every day to make our lives special.
We remember our mothers with love for the tender way they care for us.
Let us pray for our mothers and for the generations of mothers before them.
You care for us, O God,
As a mother care for her children.
Bless, protect and strengthen all the mothers of the world.
Through Christ our Lord.
Hail Mary; full of grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of death.
Blessed Edmund Rice: Pray for Us
St Mary of the Cross: Pray for Us
Live Jesus in Our Hearts: Forever

Year 6 Canberra Trip
Week 5 -Tuesday May 23 to Thursday May 25 will see all of Year 6 head off to Canberra for their annual excursion as part of our HSIE Unit on government.
During this tour they will participate in a variety of educational programmes focused on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit their National Capital as part of their civics and citizenship education. To assist you in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding under the Parliament and Civics and Education Rebate (PACER) programme toward the travel expenses incurred.
Activities undertaken as part of the educational tour include the tour of Parliament House, visit to the War Memorial and a session at the Electoral Education Centre. We would like to thank the Australian Government for their support of this program.
We hope that the excursion will be a rewarding experience for all students.
Special thanks to Mr Meadley for the tireless effort he has put in to ensure the boys have a great three days in our nation’s capital.
