From The Principal

The season of Lent is a time for deep personal faith renewal and growth. It is a time to be merciful like the Father. Welcome to 2016 and to our very exciting year ahead. It has been delightful to see so many students and families excited about being part of our welcoming, hope-filled community. Already it is evident that our Heart Value of Respect is of great value in enabling us to find the good in everything we think, say and do!
