Parish gifts cross to Our Lady of Lourdes Primary
In recognition of Catholic Schools Week (CSW) and the first anniversary of the school’s new buildings, Our Lady of Lourdes Primary, Baulkham Hills received the gift of a cross from their parish.
The cross will be displayed in the school library, as a symbol of the Catholic ethos that underpins the teaching and learning At Our Lady of Lourdes.
The cross was blessed by Father Paul Slyney during the school’s CSW mass on Thursday 3 April. In his homily Father Paul spoke of the important role of Catholic schools.
‘Catholic schools provide the opportunity for each one of you to discover the gifts and talents that God has given you, ensuring that you learn to use them to bring joy and happiness to others,’ said Father Paul.
Following the mass parents were invited into the classrooms to witness learning in action. Principal, Helen Kingsley said that CSW ‘gives the community a chance to see Catholic education at its best’.
