WORLD MISSION MONTH 2014
This year World Mission Day is Sunday 19th October. World Mission Day is celebrated every year in every country wherever there are Catholics committed to building a better world for all of God's people, a world where everyone has all they need to live a dignified and fulfilling life. It is the day on which we reflect on the urgency to proclaim the Gospel in our times.
The God of love is the source of care, tenderness, compassion, hospitality and interest in other people's problems, for spreading Christ's charity around the world. Catholic Mission around the world has the responsibility of promoting a dignified and fruitful celebration of World Mission Day.
Children's Mission Day is Wednesday 24th October. Teachers will be leading their students in some activities about Catholic Mission during the coming weeks. A number of classes will also be raising money during October to support the work of Catholic Mission.
- Senior students will be having a Day of Silence
- Prep and Year One will be having a Rock Your Socks Off Disco
More information will be supplied by the classes involved. Thank you for supporting World Mission Month.
PUPIL FREE DAY
This is the only Professional Development Day (Pupil Free Day) that doesn't now fall inside the children's holiday times. The Professional Development Day in this term is known as CTJ Day or Consistency of Teacher Judgement Day. This involves our teachers meeting with teachers of other schools to ensure the way we assess the students' work is consistent with teachers from other schools. This means that the school will be closed on Monday 20th October.
