On Thursday, 6 August we celebrated the Feast of St Dominic with an online Liturgy of the Word lead by our Student Leaders. Being unable to celebrate onsite as a College community required innovative thinking on their part and fuelled a desire to capture the essence of Siena in this new virtual gathering space. This was an opportunity to be nourished by Scripture, offer the prayers of our hearts and bless one another – as well as expressing gratitude for our continued wellness and safety.
Today all Year 10 and 11 students participated in a Reflection Session based on aspects of our College theme, Who do you say I am?
‘I am… a Dominican’ looked at responding to the ‘signs of the times’, ‘I am… a leader’ discussed senior students being agents of change and ‘I am… me’ had a focus on wellbeing and reflection.
In this flexible learning space it’s important that we continue to create these opportunities for connection and growth – particularly as students negotiate this period of discernment in regard to their 2021 studies and consider participation in the Pillars Senior Leadership program.
