Welcome to the St Kieran Catholic Primary School Website
This weekend many of our Year 6 students will receive the third and final sacrament of initiation.
This is an important time for these young people as they move towards a fuller and adult relationship with their God.
We would like to thank the many people who have contributed to this special day, especially the parents and family members together with their teachers, who over many years have guided them to this very day, and also to the young people themselves, who during the ceremony will confirm the promise, made for them at Baptism.
Next week we also remember National Sorry Day which is held on 26 May each year to acknowledge and recognise members of the Stolen Generations.The following 7 days is National Reconciliation Week which is an annual celebration held from 27 May to 3 June. It is a time to celebrate and build on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. We will include activities that relate to the week as part of our classroom program and will hold a ceremony, as we have in previous years, to commemorate Sorry Day through a whole school liturgy.
Over the next couple of weeks we will hold two small but important events that bring our children to a richer understanding of how they can make a difference in the life of others.
Firstly on June 3 we will hold the annual ArchBishop’s Lifelink appeal day. Lifelink day in schools helps support the many wonderful Catholic agencies in Perth that support those in greatest need. LifeLink agencies reach out to more than 31,000 Western Australians in need each year, delivering more than $47 million in professional programs, care and direct assistance.
On June 25 we will be collecting blankets as part of the Vinnies' winter appeal. More information is to follow regarding both events that are a learning opportunity for our children, as well as, an opportunity to make the lives of others better through our intervention.
God bless and have a great weekend.
