Catholic Education Week 2018
Last Friday, 12 of our students were thrilled to attend last Friday’s Catholic Education Week Schools’ Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral, accompanied by teachers, Mr Ling and Mrs Vivarelli.
Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to celebrate their Catholic identity, the pivotal role they play within their local community and the strength of the sector. In the Year of Youth it is also an opportunity to celebrate the young people we serve and listen to their voice. The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week was Open New Horizons for Spreading Joy, the theme of the Australian Church’s 2018 Year of Youth.
The Mass was followed by an enjoyable concert in Treasury Gardens and the students then managed to attend the Visual Art Exhibition at the Catholic Leadership Centre. Holy Name Primary School was very fortunate to have three pieces of their artwork selected to be on display.
The children also had a great opportunity to have a photograph taken with His Grace, Archbishop Hart.

From our students
“On Friday 16th of March, the six school leaders and selected art students travelled to the city by train to celebrate the St Patrick Day mass for Catholic Education Week.
We went to St Patrick’s Cathedral and participated in the Mass led by the most reverend Denis J Hart the Archbishop of Melbourne.
After the Mass, we walked to the Treasury Gardens and had lunch while singing and dancing to a year 12 band.
We then went to the Visual Art Exhibition at the Catholic Leadership Centre where we saw lots of artwork from students all around Victoria including our own students, Aprila D, Katherine L and Bianca B. We had a great day and loads of fun”.
