FIRE Carriers

FIRE Carriers  is an acronym for Friends Igniting Reconciliation through Education. The FIRE carrier project is an initiative of the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry which seeks to keep the Reconciliation flame alight in schools, educating the wider community about Reconciliation, our shared history and culture.

At St Charles’ we elect four year five students to be our FIRE carrier representatives for the year. Today Year 5/6 gathered for a Commissioning Ceremony, where we officially inducted our 2017 FIRE Carriers; Gemma, Lucas, Olivia and Sofia.  Outgoing FIRE Carriers; Alyssa, Erin, Isla and Nicole led the ceremony, inducting their successors with the Spirit of the Fire. Gemma, Lucas, Olivia and Sofia then recited a blessing prayer, dating back some 40 000 years, in which they asked to become bearers of peace, beauty, hope, harmony and reconciliation.
