For the month of March the school will be focusing on the virtue of justice. Justice is one of the cardinal virtues. As a cardinal virtue, all virtues that lead to the provision of one’s rights is justice. It is the proper moderation between self-interest and the rights and needs of others. It empowers us to give others their due at all times.
As a school we will be focusing on how students regulate relationships with their classmates, family, and those who are less fortunate. Justice is essentially a moral virtue that allows students to show piety, gratitude, liberality, kindness, honesty, truthfulness and friendliness. We will provide further opportunities for students to demonstrate their compassion for others. “The highest form of compassion, a product of justice, resides in affirming another’s right to exist”.
School Mass will on Friday, March 13th. On Mass days the bell rings at 8:45am. If your child is late for school on a Mass day please bring him or her to the school first to sign in at the school office. Students must be in full school uniform.
Parish donation receipts are available for pick-up in the Gathering Room in the Church.
