Message from Bishop Anthony Randazzo of Broken Bay
Well, 2020 has been the most challenging year to complete Year 12. The disruption to your studies, the lack of class time with your teachers and fellow students when you have needed it the most, the extra stress and pressure of the unknown. What a challenging time that you have faced during this COVID pandemic.
Two of the values that underpin our approach to education in the Diocese of Broken Bay are faith and courage. Faith gives you strength in knowing there is a God who loves you and has a purpose and plan for your life. Courage gives you the resolve to persevere in the toughest of times. Both are gifts from God.
As you begin your exams, know that you can draw on the power of the Holy Spirit to face anything that lies ahead of you. Know also that I am praying for you and you have the support of your family, friends and the community of the Church all walking with you.
God bless you.
Message from the Director of Catholic Schools, Danny Casey
Hello to all our graduating class of Year 12, 2020.
What a year it’s been. You can be very proud of your achievements. But as your approach your final preparations, it is very important that you look after yourselves and each other, and you look to the future.
You are much more of a person than you are a number. The number doesn’t define you. The values that you live your life define you. The way in which you look after the people around you. And your work ethic that you carry with you through school life and into your working life.
But now is a wonderful time. Yes a time of anxiety and excitement, but a time to thank your parents and teachers for the hard work they have put in to get you as far as you’ve come.
I want to thank each of you for choosing Broken Bay for your Catholic education.
It’s been wonderful over the last few months to spend a bit of time at our schools and to have the opportunity to met a number of you. It certainly gives me great confidence about the future of our country.
So take care of yourselves, best of luck with your exams and please stay in touch.
