VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
For the month of June, the school will be focusing on the virtue of wisdom. Wisdom is an intellectual virtue that requires carefully considered reason. As virtues go, wisdom, or prudence, is seen to act in all virtues and allows them to reach their respective potential. We always want those that we interact with to be wise and use right judgment justly and as such, we also owe that to others. As we apply wisdom to our actions and words, what becomes difficult is when we are asked to make judgments in which various goods have to be weighed against each other. It is a tough but valuable lesson to learn. As teachers, parents and community members of St. Bernadette’s, we want to encourage our students to use wisdom when making tough decisions. It is good to look to Jesus as an example for us to follow. The wisdom of Jesus is found in his acts of service. Through his works, Jesus became an example of how wise actions allow every member of the community to mature, accept responsibility and inevitably to engage in self- governance. Merely considering doing what is right does not make one wise. It is found in our words and deeds.
For our final month of this school year, our prayer for all our students is that they grow to be prudent and wise in all their major life choices. We also pray that our grade 7’s, who are receiving the gift of Wisdom through Confirmation, are filled with the Holy Spirit and have their hearts instructed by the Word of God.
Our final School Mass for this school year will on Friday, June 26th. On Mass days the bell rings at 8:45am. If your child is late for school please bring him or her to the school first to sign in at the school office. Students must be in full school uniform.
END OF SCHOOL YEAR
With the end of the school year approaching we ask that all students return any library books, parents to return any borrowed materials from the Parent Support meeting. There are still quite a few items in the Lost & Found, please take the time to go through it, as whatever is left over will be given to charity.
PARENT APPRECIATION SOCIAL/TALENT SHARE
The staff of St. Bernadette School would like to extend an invitation to all our volunteers who have made our 2014-15 school year such a success with all their hard work and support of both our students and teachers. To show our appreciation we are holding a Social @1:00pm in conjunction with the Talent Share on Monday, June 22nd. Supervision for students and younger siblings will be provided. Students who are participating in the Talent Share are reminded to bring their music, instruments, etc. that they will need/require for their performance.
