Last week the Year 12 students spent the week celebrating the end of their journey at OLMC by dressing to a different theme each day. On Monday we held our Graduation Mass and Dinner for our Year 12 students and their families. It was a fitting celebration of the six-year journey that most of our Year 12 cohort has had at OLMC. It was even more special to be able to gather and then attend the graduation dinner without restriction. The Mass was a wonderful opportunity to recognise our Year 12s and the end of their year with the blessings of God and our community. This was followed by dinner at Marvel Stadium, where we joyfully shared wonderful stories of their six years and a moment of thanks with parents and students. The night signifies the end of formal classes here at OLMC and marks a new journey for our students. It does not, however, mark an end to our relationship. All our students will remain ever linked to OLMC and we will always hold them in our prayers.
We wish all our Year 12 students the very best for their coming exams and share this prayer for them:
Let us especially pray for our Year 12 students as they enter into exams.
God, we ask that they especially feel your closeness during this time.
Give them calm hearts and quiet confidence in the knowledge that you hold them in the palm of your hand.
Bless them with keen understanding and retentive memory.
Give them the ability to grasp things correctly. Point out the beginning, direct their progress and help them in the completion of each of their responses.
Holy Spirit, send them your gifts of wisdom and knowledge.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Last week we held the Art Show. It was the first time since 2019 that we were able to showcase student work and provide the chance to view the work for parents and students. It was also a wonderful opportunity for families to view the Frayne Design Art and Technology Building along with the new walkways. I continue to be awed and inspired by the depth and breadth of talent amongst our students and was privileged to support the awarding of certificates for pieces that hang in the Admin building as part of our Caldow Collection and Year Level awards. Congratulations to all whose pieces were exhibited, we look forward to sharing in the joy of your art works.
World Teachers Day Australia – 28 October 2022
Our teachers and, in fact all teachers, have shown great resilience during challenging times over the last three years, all so they can give their best to our students.
Hats off to teachers this World Teachers’ Day!
We are encouraging students, their families and the community to celebrate teachers.
