The Spirit of Expression
CAPTIVATE is the exciting Creative and Performing Arts initiative for primary and secondary Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta.
By bringing together schools with established school-based programs and those schools seeking greater commitment in creative and performing arts, CAPTIVATE offers students a wide range of quality learning and performance opportunities beyond the scale and capacity of an individual school.
Students from Our Lady of the Rosary Primary (OLOR), St Marys have shown off their best dance moves in support of Year 6 teacher, Natalie Franciscus, ahead of her pilgrimage to Rio de Janerio for World Youth Day (WYD) in July.
On 22 February, staff and students at St Mary MacKillop Primary, Penrith South honoured the canonisation of their school patron by officially changing their school name from ‘Mary MacKillop Primary’ to ‘St Mary MacKillop Primary’.
Over 47,500 students and staff in Catholic schools as well as Catholic Education Office and Chancery staff will pray the Angelus at noon daily as a sign of ‘unity, reverence and dignity’.
