This morning our opening school Mass and Assembly took place – We warmly welcomed the new Parish Priest of Sacred Heart, Fr Martin Cruikshank. Father Martin comes to us from Finley and Leeton. We thank Fr Martin Cruikshank for celebrating Mass with us today and helping us welcome the new year as a faith community.
It is our custom to have our Dux from the previous year attend our Opening Assembly. Our Dux of 2017, Tiana Smerdon, addressed the Assembly and shared her experiences of secondary education. We were also excited to have Carla Hensel (HSC 2014) return to share her journey since completing her Higher School Certificate. Carla is in her 4th year of Medicine at the University of NSW.
The Mass & Assembly was a wonderful chance to officially welcome all of our new students starting at Xavier this year.
