At our first staff gathering at St Aloysius, for 2022, we reflected on the Mercy value of Courage. We couldn’t have chosen a more relevant focus for the world we are living in today. In the words of David Whyte, “Courage is what love looks like when tested by the simple everyday necessities of being alive”. Our experience of challenge in the last two years gives us confidence that together, we will navigate whatever 2022 will bring. We have created posters for each classroom highlighting the message from Joshua 1:9, “Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
