Foundation Day will be held on Thursday 12th August, beginning with a Whole School Mass at 9:15am in the Church.

There will at least be a minimum requirement for all adults attending to check in using the QLD Check in app. All other restrictions will reflect those at the time of Foundation Day.<br></p>​<br><br></div><p><br></p>
    Stewardship in Actionhttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Stewardship-in-Action.aspxStewardship in Action<p></p><p>On the weekend a group of students represented Star of the Sea for Sports Aerobics. After the event, an excellent act of stewardship occurred. As Christians, we believe that God gave human beings a special responsibility within creation to cultivate it, protect it and use it wisely.</p><p>There were comments made after the Sports Aerobic Event on how much rubbish had been left behind by groups using the areas for eating. One of our Year 6 students was so upset by the amount of rubbish left behind that she went home and sent an email to the school principal expressing her concern, outlining the negative effects of rubbish in their school environment and suggested an action plan for helping with the rubbish problem.</p><p>Her plan included information about our EcoWarriors’ program and suggestions for starting such a group at their school. Her Stewardship in Action did not stop there. She created and sent to the principal posters about rubbish and the importance of picking it up to display in and around their school. She then went back to the school an hour later with gloves and picked all of the rubbish that was left behind.</p><p>We think this student is amazing! Her respect for the environment, not only for our school but of other schools is inspirational as is her dedication to ensuring that our planet is being looked after. One small act (no matter how small or big) has the power to change the world.</p><p>What a great act of Stewardship in Action in our community.<br></p><p>​<img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/stewardship.jpg" alt="stewardship.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p>
    Catholic Education Weekhttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Catholic-Education-Week.aspxCatholic Education Week<p></p><p>This week, we celebrate Catholic Education Week (CEW). The theme for this year is <strong><em>‘A Spirited Tomorrow’</em></strong> and acknowledges the long tradition of Catholic education and its continued relevance in preparing students for the future.</p><p>Earlier in the week, our Year 6 Leaders, together with myself, Mrs Louise McLucas and Mrs Nicole Clough, attended CEW mass at Carmel College. Our students proudly represented our school at this mass, and as Pope Francis reminds us, ‘hope lives within the young people of our communities’. The theme reminds us of this, and is beautifully shared in the CEW reflection below:<br></p><p>​<br></p><p><em>Hope is found in the ability of our young people to give all of themselves, no matter how seemingly small their offering may appear. It is through their giving that our spirited tomorrow is with filled hope.</em></p><p><em>A hope that is renewed as each of our students are provided with the opportunity to flourish, to discover who they are and who they have been created to be, to know in their fullness of heart that they are made in the image of God and that they are loved.</em></p><p><em>A hope that thrives as each of our students participate in our communities not only making a difference but being the difference.</em></p><p><em>A hope that is renewed each time a young person places their trust in God… knowing that God knows the plans He has for them, plans to prosper them, to give them hope and a future.</em></p><p><em>As we celebrate the great gift that is Catholic Education in Queensland, we give thanks for the many ways that our God walks beside us, comforts and inspires us.</em></p><p><em>In embracing our Spirited Tomorrow, we also rejoice in the knowledge that our stories are woven into the Spirit that flows through all our faith-filled communities.</em></p><p><em>As we look towards new horizons, may we walk boldly forward, together in hope, trusting in the plans God has for us. <strong>(source: 2021 CEW Resources)</strong></em></p><p><br></p><p><em><strong></strong></em><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/CEW2021.jpg" alt="CEW2021.jpg" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p><p><br></p>
