Welcome to the commencement of Term 2. I hope that your Easter break was faith-filled and that the girls enjoyed and relaxed during their break from school.
I ask that you keep the people of Sri Lanka in your prayers after the dreadful terror acts that took place whilst we were celebrating Easter here. I spoke to the girls yesterday about the courage we all need to have, to stand together as a united humanity from all faith traditions to eliminate extremism of all kinds.
ANZAC Day Reflection
The annual RSL and Schools Remember Anzac Commemoration Service was held on Tuesday 9 April 2019 at the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park. Five Year 10 History students - Caitlin, Amy, Elizabeth, Anne and Kaitlin - volunteered to represent the College at the Service.
Yesterday at the College Assembly, the students led a wonderful ANZAC ceremony remembering all fallen Australians from Gallipoli right through to today’s modern peacekeeping forces. The girls brought a beautiful reflection of the effects that WWII had on the OLMC borders during this time. Life with ration books, evening blackouts, limited food and coping with fathers, brothers, uncles and aunts who lost their lives during the war. I would like to acknowledge and thank Ms Melissa Riley (Leader of Learning, History) who guided the girls in the development of our Service.
