Newman News Term 2 Week 8: From the Director of Mission and Catholic Identity

Key Dates

College Calendar Link – In recent times, our school calendar has changed regularly.

Primary Lifelink Launch 

On Wednesday 8 June Year 3 Red participated in the annual Lifelink launch, which was held online this year. Lifelink is an organisation that assists the work of social service agencies established by the Archdiocese of Perth.   

Year 3 Red with the support of Mrs Catherine Young, have spent time researching the work of different Lifelink agencies over the past few weeks. Through sharing this within our school community they have been able to raise awareness of how Lifelink supports those in need and provides hope and joy for all in our community. They created a beautiful poster about Lifelink, which was shared at the launch and will be displayed in our administration area.   

Year 9 Retreat

On Thursday 23 June, our Year 9’s will take part in their annual Retreat Day, facilitated by the Youth Ministry Team. The Retreat follows our Vision for Mission: to form “Good Christians and Good Citizens” as we offer students an opportunity away from normal school routine to pause and reflect on their relationship with others, themselves and God.  

These experiences have shown to be positive and rewarding for our students and we look forward to an enjoyable and enlightening day with our Year 9 students. 

Community Mass 

We welcome the whole community to join us for our regular Mass on Thursday mornings in the Champagnat Chapel. Starting at 8.10am and concluding at 8.40am the Mass is celebrated by a Priest from a local Parish and is hosted by students from both Marcellin and Lavalla Campuses. Please see the upcoming schedule below.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
