Mission Matters

Enhancing Catholic School Identity (ECSI) Survey

All Siena parents and guardians will have received instructions in relation to completing these surveys online. This data is invaluable in that it helps us to provide understanding of:

  • Styles of religious belief
  • Ways Catholic schools give shape to their identity theologically
  • How Catholic schools perceive themselves pedagogically

Surveys need to be completed by Thursday, 14 April.

If you have any questions regarding ECSI, please email me: jlevett@siena.vic.edu.au.

Living Lent Well Through the Lens of Hope

Across these first weeks of Lent, Siena students have been committed to Living Lent Well by:

  • Raising awareness of the communities supported by this year’s Caritas Project Compassion Campaign, For All Future Generations
  • Contributing donations to support the work of the Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project
  • Holding raffles to raise funds for Project Dignity, a women’s health initiative supporting the Kopanang Community in Tsakane, South Africa

We also continue to pray for the people of Ukraine. In this week's Eureka Street magazine, Andrew Hamilton SJ says: "Hope is really an expression of love and of the trust that love is ultimately stronger than hatred or apathy."

The Annunciation on 25 March

"Christ comes among us in every generation in ways that we could never have anticipated."

Timothy Radcliffe OP

Today provides us with an opportunity to be grateful for the willingness of Mary to take on the role of making Emmanuel (God with us) possible.

This beautiful fresco by Dominican Fra Angelico is located in the Convent of San Marco, Florence which has been visited by Siena staff and students during cultural trips to Italy.
