ASH WEDNESDAY 1st MARCH 2017
1st March is Ash Wednesday. This day marks the beginning of Lent. Lent is the special season in the Church year which lasts for forty days and leads us to Easter. Lent is a time of prayer. It is a time for reflecting on the way we live our lives. Lent is a time for examining our hearts and being willing to make changes by being better people. It is a time for saying 'sorry' and asking forgiveness. It is a time when we look to God and do our best to live as God wants us to live, as we ready our hearts for Easter.
On Ash Wednesday, the students in Years 3-6 will attend mass. They will receive ashes on their foreheads in the sign of a cross. This sign is a reminder to follow Jesus and turn their hearts to God. Students in Prep-Year 2 will receive the ashes in their classrooms.
In classrooms, this week, many students will make Lenten promises, where they are asked to either give something up or take something up for the period of Lent. You might be able to discuss with your child/ren their promise and the importance it will have on this journey.

CRAZY HAIR DAY
On Friday 3rd March the OLOL school community will raise money for the Cancer Council, Queensland. Thinking of all those affected within our community; students are encouraged to wear their hair in a 'crazy' style for a gold coin donation. With shave for a cure in the media, this allows the learning experience and connections to take place not just at school but in the wider environment.
