This morning we celebrated our beginning of year school Mass. This Mass begins our celebration of our 40th Anniversary where 40 years ago, on the second of April 1979, ninety-three children and seven staff moved into their new classrooms. Today at mass representatives from each year level processed in with a banner representing their grade declaring who they were, led by the school captains carrying the school banner. The Staff at St Augustine’s were also recognised at Mass with a commissioning and blessing, renewing their commitment to their teaching vocation. It was a proud moment standing up with a talented, committed and joyful group of people.
