WALKING IN THEIR SHOES
Our Caritas school fundraiser for Lent is linked with the School Cross Country this Friday, 4th April. Don't we all wish for a life filled with certainty; a life free from the burden of poverty with equal access to food, water, education, healthcare and shelter; a life of dignity and a life of peace within our hearts and minds?
Students are asked to bring a gold coin donation on Friday to raise money to help communities become more sustainable. In doing so, we will be honouring the thousands of women and children around the world who, every day, need to cover many kilometres to fetch water, obtain food, get to school or market, or simply to survive. On this day, by our actions we stand in solidarity with these people.
This promises to add to what is usually a great day. While encouraging our own health and vitality, we will also be contributing in a real way to the life of communities around the world. "..I have come that they may have life and live it to the full." John 10:10
District Trials Our Lytton district basketballers played in the Met East trials today and were the champion team for 2014. This is very exciting for the girls, Lily, Keeley and Victoria. Keeley was chosen in the Met East team for playing at the State titles in Townsville. Well done Keeley! This is an enormous achievement.
