St Kieran News
Christ our life, You are alive - in the beauty of the earth, in the rhythm of the seasons, in the mystery of time and space.
Christ our life, You are alive - in the tenderness of touch, in the heartbeat of intimacy, in the insights of solitude.
Christ our life, You are alive - in the creative possibility, of the dullest conversation of the dreariest task, the most threatening event.
Christ our life, You are alive - to offer re-creation, to every unhealed hurt, to every deadened place, to every damaged heart.
You set before us a great choice. Therefore we choose life.
The dance of resurrection soars and surges through the whole creation,
This is grace, So let us live.
Sponsor a Child for Project Compassion
During this season of Lent the boys from Small Groups D embarked on an initiative to raise money for Project Compassion.
They asked staff to sponsor them to walk to and from the pool during the 2 weeks of swimming lessons.
The staff have overwhelmingly supported them and all of us in Small Groups D are so happy to say that we have raised $337.70
Congratulations to our Faith and Community Pillars on their dedication to ensure fundraising activities for Caritas ran smoothly with maximum participation from all students.
The Community Pillar were very busy selling raffle tickets in our Easter raffle and raised a whopping $1244.50 (more money was handed in at the end of the day).
The Faith Pillar organised a clever incentive for classes. Each week they weighed each class' Caritas Projection Compassion Box.
The winning Year Level was Year 1 with a total weight of 3kg 496 grams!
Year 1 enjoyed a hot cross bun for their excellent efforts. Well done to the Year 1's for their generosity!
The total raised through the Project Compassion Boxes was a massive $1160.70
This means the TOTAL raised by the school for Caritas - Project Compassion for 2021 was $ 2405.20
An amazing effort from all in our St Kieran Family to help Make Jesus Real for those less fortunate that need our support.

Stations of the Cross around St Kieran
This morning the Year Two’s reverently participated in the Stations of the Cross around St Kieran. At each stop we read about each station and joined together in prayer. To end our service we reflected on the very special time we are in and said our own prayers.
Wow…that seemed to go really fast! I can't believe we have already come to the end of the first term. We really appreciate the support this term and look forward to working with the community in Term 2. Thank you all for a fantastic term and I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and stay safe over the holidays.
As you are aware we have two staff members leaving us at the end of the is term, however I am very pleased to confirm that from the start of Term 2 the following staff appointments:
Miss Renee Horton will be now working in the Small Groups position for the remainder of 2021.
Mr Jeremiah Jackson will be stepping into the Enrichment Role on Tuesday’s for the remainder of 2021.
Congratulations to you both and we look forward to you joining us in Term 2 through these roles.
