Dear Parents and Carers,
As we end the first Term for this year, it is important as a Catholic School, to reflect on the events of Holy Week and prepare for Easter Sunday. The students have been celebrating these important events over the past week and have been prayerful in their presentations.The Sacred Tridiuum
A "Triduum" is a three-day period (the word comes from the Latin - tres Dies). The Easter Triduum is a three-day period in which Christians celebrate what Easter means to them. Is it the pinnacle of the liturgical year. These three days are three days of mystery.The Easter Triduum is when we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. These days call to mind the last meal and arrest of Jesus (Thursday evening), the crucifixion and burial of Jesus (Good Friday), and the resurrection of Jesus (Easter Day).
While you attend the services over Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, explain to your children the meaning of each event. When they are enjoying their Easter Eggs also stress with them the eggs mean New Life in the risen Lord for all of us.
The students need to be in their Full Winter Uniform by Monday 10th May. During the first three weeks of term 2 they can wear their summer or winter uniform, depending on the weather.
Student of the Week Assemblies
We will go back to announcing the 'Student of the Week' on Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm, so parents can attend. Hopefully we can still zoom the assembly for parents who can not be at the school.
Have a happy and Holy Easter.
Today is the last day for term 1.
Term 2 resumes on Monday 19th April.
