     What's On @ Star of the Sea



    Congratulations to our Graduating Studentshttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Congratulations-to-our-Graduating-Students.aspxCongratulations to our Graduating Students<p></p><p>Over the past week, our Year 6 students have been involved in and lead with pride a Graduation Liturgy with family, staff from Star of the Sea and Fr Ashley; a Final Assembly with our Star of the Sea School Community; and finally this Friday, 4th December, our End of Year Mass with family, friends and members of the Parish and School Community.</p><p>These ceremonies marked the end of one stage of their educational journey and the beginning of another. They marked a time of growth and change, excitement and expectation, memory and reflection. We gather to remember and to give thanks for all that has taken place in their time here at Star of the Sea School. Our Year 6 graduating students have been fine examples of leaders in our school.</p><p>Thank you to Louise and  Nicole for preparing and organising the students to lead these ceremonies in such a respectful and reverent matter. Thank you also to staff, family members and friends for coming together to celebrate a wonderful milestone for our Year 6 students.<br></p><p><br><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/year6graduates2020.jpg" alt="year6graduates2020.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br><br></p><p><br><br></p>
    Reflecting on 2020http://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Reflecting-on-2020.aspxReflecting on 2020<p style="text-align:justify;">As I’ve been reflecting on the events of 2020, I was reminded of a message from Pope Francis that he shared in May. In his message, he challenged us to see the impossibility of gathering as a church to celebrate the Eucharist, as an invitation to ‘love of our neighbour.’ He challenged us all to take up the opportunity to act with compassion, to share, to serve and to pray.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The unpredictable nature of 2020 has certainly tested our adaptability, resilience, and of course, our patience. This year, I have experienced the very best of qualities in our Star of the Sea community. I have witnessed the genuine care and concern for others and the commitment to service of our amazing teaching team and support staff. They have met every challenge with grace and perseverance. Their creativity and innovation has ensured that we could continue to do all the things that we value at Star of the Sea, just a little differently.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">I am immensely proud to lead a community who have so willingly worked together for the safety and wellbeing of our students (your beautiful children), our families, our staff and our community.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Our 2021 School year commences on Wednesday, 27 January, and I will share the arrangements around our start of year routines closer to the time. I know that we are all looking forward to a time when we can come together again as community. Regardless of what 2021 brings, I know that we will welcome the new school year with a renewed perspective of our values that make us such a special community, and that give us a sense of belonging.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Thank you to all in our Star of the Sea Community for another fabulous year. I would like to wish you all God’s blessings for the Christmas Season, and I look forward to welcoming you back to school in 2021.<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/2021Term1.jpg" alt="2021Term1.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>
