Walking with Mary, as our guide to God we are:
- Full of Grace - Obedient - Faithful - Compassionate -
- Thoughtful - Hopeful -Contented - Determined
The Term 1 Value is Full of Grace
We live our value of Full of Grace through the VIRTUES of...
Gentleness,Patience, Peacefulness, Humility, Integrity
'Full of Grace' encompasses the spirit of Mary. We hope our children and other people in our school community will be full of grace by being patient, calm, respectful, gentle and prayerful. In order to explain the meaning of full of grace to our children we can liken it to being full of God's presence or full of God's goodness. Acting outwardly upon the goodness within and having an active and positive acceptance of God's plan, captures the essence of being full of grace. Mary was Full of Grace throughout her relationship with Jesus and this is shown through her acceptance of God's plan, despite the many trials and challenges she faced."But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, 'Woman, behold, your son!' Then he said to the disciple, 'Behold, your mother!' And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home." John 19:25-27
Our aim is to:

- Respect God's creation
- Develop our God-given gifts, enabling us to reach our potential
- Unite in spirit, as family, school, Church and community
You blessed the Virgin Mary with the fullness of grace.
She is our model of faith, hope and love.
We give this new year to her intercession and ask for her holy prayers.
Place our needs into the protection of her motherly love.
With her help, we want our faith to grow.
Give us an increase in the virtue of hope when troubles tempt us to despair.
Guide us in understanding Your infinite love.
And join our hearts, dear Lord, to the Holy Mother's Immaculate Heart,
so that we may improve in loving everyone unconditionally, in imitation of our Saviour Jesus.
