School Song, Prayer and Acknowledgement of Country

The prayer and liturgical life of the school are central to the spiritual dimension of our school. 

Students participate in daily opportunities for prayer both in class and as a whole school. Liturgies and celebrations of the Eucharist are held regularly throughout the year.


Follow me, said Jesus, follow me.
If you are seeking wisdom, follow me.
Wisdom comes from knowing
that I am with you always.
You will find wisdom if you follow me.

Follow me, said Jesus, follow me.
If you are seeking love, follow me.
In my life I loved all people,
Now you go and do the same.
You will find love if you follow me.

Follow me, said Jesus, follow me.
If you are seeking God, follow me.
For God is wisdom, God is love,
God calls us to open our hearts.
You will find God, if you follow me.

God our Father in heaven,
By your grace you have given us all that is good.

Thank you for our Catholic community of faith, love and learning.

As we gather here under the guidance of Mary, our Mother,
help us to seek your wisdom and courage
so that we can learn to be more like Jesus, your Son.

May our classrooms be filled with discovery,
our playgrounds filled with joy,
our futures filled with hope and
our hearts filled with love.

Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us.



As we gather here today, let us acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Dharawal people, where the Aboriginal people have performed age-old ceremonies of storytelling and renewal.
