On Wednesday 10th February, our school community will participate in an Ash Wednesday ceremony at 10 am in the church. This day marks the beginning of Lent and a 40 day period of preparing ourselves for Easter and the resurrection of Jesus. The children will be marked with a cross of ashes on the forehead. Parents are welcome to attend this ceremony. To coincide with the beginning of Lent, the Catholic community raises funds for less fortunate people around the world. The funds raised will be used to improve the lives of these people by providing the goods they need to live a decent life. I would ask you to kindly consider making a donation to this cause.
