End of Year Mass

Posted by St Dominic's Priory College on 5 December 2018
End of Year Mass

The End of Year Mass ritual speaks for itself as a Eucharistic encounter between Christ and our community enriched by the words of the Scripture beautifully conveyed, and by the prayers of the Church and of the Faithful.  The music from Choir from the soloists, and the backing of the musicians takes us into the world beyond words, one which speaks to the heart.  Our graduates were especially in our hearts as they were given a special part in this Mass.  See inside today's Bulletin for more...

This Final Week

The Years 7-12 Assembly will be held on this Friday when student awards will be presented and students will farewell some of our staff.  See inside today's Bulletin for dismissal times.

Twilight Assembly

Thank you to the many parents who have sent positive emails to the Primary teachers congratulating them on their hard work, enthusiasm and the success of last week's Twilight Assembly.  The kind words are always very much appreciated. We were all so very proud of the class performances and you could definitely see the joy on the girls' faces.  All the classes had put thought into their acts and you could see the enormous amount of enthusiasm the students had when performing their class pieces and singing the final songs.

Transitions

November is a time when all of us at school are transiting from one year to the next. Students begin or end their exams and others are involved in fun activities like Year 8 with Picnic in the Park.  Some students in our junior years have just been to Children's University graduation ceremony at Adelaide University, to receive their certificates for work accomplished in their own time.  Year 12 students are finishing their exams and will soon have time to think of the two major transition events which celebrate their movement from school days viz., the End of Year Mass and the Graduation Ball.

Upcoming Events

  • Primary Twilight Assembly: Tuesday 20 November
  • Final Parents & Friends Committee and Fete Committee meeting(s) for 2018: Wednesday 21 November
