Week 9 - It's a Short One!

Good morning parents,

I hope that you enjoyed a restful and relaxing break over Easter...I certainly did!

Parent Interviews - If you have not already done so, can you please add your name to the schedule outside so that we can have some time to discuss your child's progress.

Thank you to those parents that have already done so.

20th Anniversary Celebrations - On Friday 1st April OLC will be celebrating 20 years of education. This will begin with Mass being celebrated at 10am in the Hall followed by a morning tea. All parents are asked to provide a small plate to share.

All students are asked to wear their Summer Uniform on Friday.

We would love to see as many parents there as possible.

Week 8 - Holy Week

Good morning parents,

This week we are focused on the reflections of Holy Week. This is a very solemn and important time within our faith.

We will be sharing a reflection on Holy Thursday beginning at 9am in the Hall to be led by the Year 3 students. It would be wonderful to see as many parents there as possible.

Thank you for your attendance at Mass on Saturday night, it was a lovely chance to get together to celebrate such a special time in our church. I was very proud of all of the students and the mature and respectful way in which they conducted themselves. 

Chrism Mass - tomorrow the students and I will be travelling to Bunbury to attend the Chrism Mass at the Cathedral. We will be leaving school at 9.30am.
I will give students a chance to have some recess before we leave as they won't be back until approximately 1.30pm. We will have a small snack after Mass before boarding the bus to come back to school.
All students are to wear their Summer Uniform - please make sure th…

Chrism Mass - Digital Copy

14th March 2016
Dear Silver Room Parents,
RE: Chrism Mass – Tuesday 22nd March
We will be travelling to Bunbury on Tuesday 22nd March to participate in the Chrism Mass that is held at the Bunbury Cathedral. Mass will begin at 11am and will conclude at approximately 12.15pm.
At this Mass, the Chrism Oil that will be used for our students when they make their Confirmation later in the year is blessed.
The sign of Confirmation is the Oil of Chrism, the most sacred of the oils. During the Confirmation ceremony, a person is anointed on the forehead with Chrism. As the oil is absorbed by the body, it is a sign of how the confirmed person is filled with the Holy Spirit. Chrism is olive oil mixed with a perfume so that it can never be confused with the other holy oils.
The Power of the sacraments is the power of Christ's Resurrection. Each year, therefore, Chrism is consecrated, and the Oils of the Sick and Catechumens are blessed, in Holy Week as part of the Easter celebrations.
We will be d…
