St George's Day

Found in: News

On Monday, the School community gathered at St George’s Cathedral for the annual St George’s Day Eucharist.

The Right Reverend Kate Wilmot, the Assistant Bishop of Perth, Mr Philip Goldsworthy, Director of Mission and Planning of the Anglican Schools Commission, staff, students, parents and special guests paid tribute to our patron, St George. 

St George’s Day is one of the most significant days in the School calendar. It is an opportunity for the School community to celebrate our past, honour our Founders and reaffirm the School’s Christian ethos and values. It is an important occasion for the whole school to have the opportunity to gather together and to celebrate the strength of our community, remembering that the whole is stronger than the sum of its parts.

The celebration of St George’s Day at the School reflects founding principles contained in our motto of “Wisdom, Grace and Service.” The day included elements of worship, community, celebration and service. The Eucharist included the blessing of over 700 hygiene items that were collected by our Year 7 to 10 students for donation to Anglicare. Students provided musical entertainment on the rooftop at lunchtime. Team games were held at Langley Park in the afternoon and handwritten letters from the Year 11 and 12 students were provided to the residents of Amana Living.

Congratulations to the very deserving recipients of the 'Spirit of St George' awards - Eliza Griffin (senior award) and Ella Tiley (junior award).
