A Visitor From The Vatican

Last Monday we were fortunate to have a visit from His Excellency, Archbishop Angelo Vincenzo Zani, Secretary of the Holy See’s Congregation for Catholic     Education and Professor Monsignor Guy-Real Thiverge, the Secretary General of the Holy See’s new foundation – Fondazione Gravissium Educationis who were visiting Broken Bay Diocese and meeting with Bishop Peter. His Excellency was interested in seeing how school operates in Australia so the large group of visitors moved throughout the school for about an hour. As he visited classrooms he saw Year 1 involved in English groups, Year 4 in the library, Year 4 at music, Year 2 at PE and discussed various aspects of Laudato Si with some of our 5/6 students as they showed him their work with Chromebooks. We talked about our emphasis on encouraging the little ones to be involved in creative, exploratory play and how we have designed play areas to support this. The Kinders had been waiting a while for the visitors to see them at play and as we walked onto the playground one of them ran past and was heard to say … God is here now! Another great day.
