Opening and Blessing of Our New Buildings

Opening & Blessing.pngA special Liturgy and Civil Ceremony was held in our hall to open and Bless the first three stages of our current school Master Plan. For your reference these stages were:

Stage 1: Construction of a new Administration Building and new Prep A and Prep B classrooms with toilets and landscaping

Stage 2: Construction of 4 new Year 2 Classrooms with toilets; the refurbishment of the old Administration Building into 5 new classrooms (currently Year 6) and Learning Support facilities

Stage 3: Construction of 4 new Year 3 classrooms.

Bishop Ken Howell, the Axillary Bishop of our Archdiocese officiated at the ceremony. Bishop Ken was given a tour of the new facilities and spoke with the students during this time. What was very special about the day was the return of Ms Glenda Morgan, the previous principal of Stella Maris. Glenda was responsible for these three projects being delivered. Glenda quickly reconnected with the community and enjoyed catching up. Also attending was Sister Margaret Conway, the foundation principal of our school when Stella Maris began in 1980. Sister Margaret was delighted to see the latest additions to our school site.
