To commence the 2021 school year, we gathered together for Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of Lent and also had the opportunity to say thank you and farewell to Fr. Ben for his service to the Wanneroo community over the years. In class, the Year 4s have been learning about ‘Church’ and what it means to be part of community. We learnt that Jesus taught people about God and his love through parables or ‘stories’. Although these parables are simple stories about seeds, coins or sheep, they catch the reader's attention and invite us to a deeper truth about God’s love for us.
