On Friday 29 June we celebrated Bethlehem Day which is always a special day in the College calendar.
We began the day as a Catholic community coming together in a beautiful Mass celebrated by Fr Joti Bilawatu, Parish Priest of St Vincent’s Ashfield in which we remembered our long history as a College established by the Sisters of Charity in 1881. We were very blessed this year to have the Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools Dr Dan White join us for the Mass as well as a number of special guests including Rebecca Ha (Class of 2013) who gave the Bethlehem Day address.
Following the Mass students and staff enjoyed the beautiful sunshine in a day of true community spirit for a “Food and Fun” celebration of stalls, food, games and activities. A particular highlight was the Staff v Students Basketball game, with history recording a ‘narrow’ win for the students!
Finally, the day concluded with an amazing celebration of the cultural diversity represented among our students in a concert where students proudly performed dances and songs reflecting their cultural heritage.
Thank you to all students and staff for a wonderful Bethlehem Day 2018.
