Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Friday was a day of ceremonies: firstly we held our Easter Mass. This is always a very nice
service and Mrs Dillon and all of the children who took part did an excellent job.
Then in the afternoon we had a service to commemorate our field of remembrance. I would like to thank all of the pupils who took part in this moving ceremony. ANZAC weekend has been a very moving occasion with the special focus on Gallipoli—I was especially moved by the
passage read out from the pen of Kemal Ataturk. I guess the message in brief is that no matter how bad the situation the challenge is to forgive and to move on otherwise your whole life will be wasted by focusing on the past.
We learn from the past to enable us to succeed in the future. The ability to forgive and move on is a key cornerstone of Christianity and one that enable us to live in harmony without holding needless grudges.
Have a great week
