Welcome back to a new school year, St. Augustine students and families, and a special welcome to all our new families joining us for the first time! It is our honour to serve each and everyone of you!
I hope you all enjoyed a restful and fun-filled summer! The teachers, staff, and I can't wait to hear of all your summer adventures. We have all been busy over the last several weeks preparing the school and classrooms for your return.
I am excited to see all of you next week and to continue to get to know all of you and to serve you. I look forward to the upcoming academic year, knowing it will be filled with many successes by students, parents, and teachers and staff alike. Most importantly, we take on the upcoming year in communion as we continue to mould the minds and spirits of our children as a faith community.
This year’s theme for all Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese is “What Do You Want Of Me, Lord?”
This year, let us celebrate and rejoice in what we are called to do as disciples of our faith by listening to Jesus and seeking out and living what He wants of us: to live our lives with love and bear witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. He wants us to be holy — in our school, in our homes, in our communities, around the world, and in our lives.
Have a wonderful, faith-filled school year!
