CIRCLE OF MERCY
Last week our Year 6 students
attended in a special workshop,
The Circle of Mercy, with
singer/songwriters Gina Ogilvie
and Monica O’Brien. The
children participated in singing
and viewed a clip entitled,
“What Does the Circle of Mercy
Mean to you?” They were then
asked to reflect on the message and share their thoughts with the group. The
session finished with the students participating in a liturgy with students from
Sacred Heart. Thank you to the Catholic Education Office and Miss Leesa Jeffcoat
for sponsoring this event and to Vicki Heggie, Religious Education Consultant for
her organisation of this tour.
