Help Our Garden Grow!

Since last week, we are $10,000 closer towards our beautiful new garden. Thank you to all our contributors! As you can see, we still need another $20,000 by 31 May. Please help our garden grow!

Our vision is a peaceful space in the centre of the school, where our girls can rest, reflect and socialise, teaching them the value of beauty and the natural environment.

Discovering God’s Call

After weeks of hard work and study, culminating in their Half Yearly Examinations, our Year 12 girls have gone away for two days of retreat. This is a special time of prayer and reflection, as they contemplate post-school reality and God’s unique plan for each one in study, professional work, social commitments, service and family. These are choices every one of our girls will face. We hope the retreat will help them ‘transform [these choices], in the light of faith, into steps towards the fullness of joy to which everyone is called.’ This is the essence of ‘vocational discernment’ as the Synod of Bishops has recently explained.

In 2018, the Church has a particular focus on young people. Bishops from across the world will meet in Rome to examine the theme ‘Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment’. This will be great preparation for the upcoming World Youth Day in Panama next January. Many Tangara girls are already preparing for the pilgrimage.

Happy holidays! See you all refreshed and energised for Term 2.
