Saint Angela Feast Day

March 2022: Today we celebrated the feast day of Saint Angela of the Cross.
Our school is named in honour of Saint Angela of the Cross, who lived in Spain from 1846-1932. Saint Angela dedicated her life to prayer and service to others, and is a wonderful role model for students and their families.
The students have had a busy day of celebrations, starting with a Mass led by Father Confidence and then a special sausage sizzle lunch.
We were excited to welcome our families into the classrooms for an activity followed by our first school assembly.
Happy feast day Saint Angela!
