Windows of hope to celebrate Edmund Rice Week

May 4, 2020

Traditionally, this week would be a time of great celebration at St Patrick’s College.

Tomorrow, Tuesday May 5, is Edmund Rice Day, a day in honour of the founder of the Christian Brothers, and a day on which we would traditionally hold the College Walkathon and the St Pat’s Has Talent Quest.

While the St Pat’s Has Talent is being conducted in an online environment, the walkathon can not occur due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, that does not mean we can not come together as a community, even in these times of social isolation.

This week, along with other Edmund Rice schools across Australia we are asking our community to focus on the theme of: Looking out my window – with hope.

All in our community (students, staff, parents, Old Collegians) are invited to take a photo looking out from their own personal window of hope and then to share the photo along with some brief thoughts about your great hope.

We will then collate these images and thoughts into an online gallery which will be published at the end of the week. It will remain as a permanent reminder of our communal hope in this time of challenge.

To share your photo simply upload it at this link.
