PROJECT COMPASSION 2014
The season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday, which also marks the beginning of the annual Caritas Australia Project Compassion appeal. This year's Project Compassion stories are about our desire for a full and beautiful life within the surroundings of home. Not just a house to live in, but a life filled with certainty, free from the burden of poverty with access to food, water, education, healthcare and shelter. Donations to Project Compassion allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development, to work towards this creation of a more just and fair world for whole communities.
You will find information about how Our Lady of Lourdes School is supporting Project Compassion in upcoming newsletters and through letters distributed by class teachers. Please put your compassion into action this Lent by supporting Project Compassion 2014.
LOGO and MOTTO
Thank you to all who sent me a response about the School Logo and Motto. I received a huge number of responses with observations and thoughts included.
The Results: This Concept for the logo was an overwhelming favourite and will become our new Logo. We also had many suggestions about Mottos with the motto of 'Together We Journey With God" being by far the most approved.
I have presented both the Logo and Motto to Fr Dan and he has endorsed them.
SUNNYBANK DISTRICTS - REGIONAL SWIMMERS
On Wednesday 26th February, fifteen students from OLOL represented the Sunnybank District at Regionals, which was held at the Chandler Aquatic Centre. These students were selected to swim at this meet from the District Carnival. Congratulations to the swimmers who did a fantastic job at not only representing our school but the Sunnybank District:
A special mention must go to Tamara and Sarah who qualified for the Metropolitan West team to compete at the State Championships later this month in Brisbane. Tamara will be swimming in the 50m Butterfly and Sarah in the 50m Butterfly, 50m Breastroke and 100m Breastroke. Good luck girls!
