Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to celebrate their Catholic identity and the pivotal role they play within their local community. We are blessed to belong to such a strong faith community. Now is the time to ask ourselves ‘what would God want us to do?’
Lent is a special time when we stop and think about how we can play our part in God’s hope for a world that is fair, just and peaceful. Through prayer, fasting and almsgiving we take the focus from ourselves and instead focus on our relationship with God.

On Thursday, Grade 3/4KC celebrated their class Mass.
The theme of the mass was how Jesus cares for us – just as a shepherd looks after his/her sheep.
One of the songs that the children sang was “He Knows My Name”.

Our school leaders celebrated the feast of St Patrick, Patron Saint of our Archdiocese at the cathedral today. The homily began by asking us if we liked celebrating our birthday, did we have a hero that we looked up to and did we want to do something special in our life. This led onto the life of St Patrick who followed in Jesus’ footsteps and a call for us to serve others. At the conclusion of Mass, we walked to the gardens for live entertainment and games.
On St. Patrick’s Day 1/2B celebrated a beautiful mass with their families. It was wonderful to see so many adults joining us and a big thank you to Mrs Callea for preparing the mass with the children. Also thank you to Miss Greenlaw for organising the music. 1/2B were amazing, doing their roles with such joy and confidence. Thank you for praying for Miss Bugno, I’m sure she felt a little better knowing you were thinking of her.
Last night, we celebrated the Graduating Class of 2015. The Year 6 students did an amazing job at leading the night and it was a wonderful celebration of the Year 6 student’s journey at St Charles Borromeo. We began the night with a beautiful mass lead by Father Gerry and continued with a celebration in our school hall.
Some Year 6 students reflected on the night…

‘It was a night to remember, my favourite part was when we got to perform our song, dance and got to share with our parents our scrapbooks’- Alessia
‘I liked the slideshow of photos at the end’- Sharni
‘I think many parents also enjoyed the night and liked reflecting on our journey in primary school’- Clarece
