As we celebrate the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross,
let us glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and delivered.
May Christ be in our mind, in our lips, in our heart, in our actions, in our life.
The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross celebrates two historical events: the discovery of the True Cross by Saint Helena, the mother of the Emperor Constantine, in 320 under the temple of Venus in Jerusalem, and the dedication in 335 of the basilica and shrine built on Calvary by Constantine, which mark the site of the Crucifixion.
The Holy Cross is the most common of all Catholic symbols. It symbolises the cross on which Christ died and is a constant reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made for us and of His presence in our lives.

Telethon Pyjama Day – Tuesday 20 September
We are very proud to hear that Year Two student, Leo Beazley, will be one of the Telethon children this year. Leo is always smiling and brings so much joy to others. This is a wonderful opportunity for Leo.
To support Leo with fundraising, we will hold a K-12 Pyjama Day on Tuesday 20 September. Students will need to donate a minimum of a gold coin to be given to their class teacher, or HTG teacher, on the Tuesday morning. If you wish to donate and not wear pyjamas, please do so.
Please be aware of our dress standards and ensure all pyjama/bed wear is appropriate, including slogans, and body coverage. Also, students may have their hair done as they wish for the day.
Students who do not wish to participate will be required to continue to wear their regular school uniform, including expected hair standards.
Join us in making this a successful and memorable time for Leo.
Learning Conversations PP-12
Monday is a pupil free day; however, student, parent and teacher conversations will be taking place throughout the day. Thank you.
