Cultural Awards
Warmest congratulations to all award winners celebrated at our Cultural Awards evening on Thursday 24 September. Full list

Bishop Justin and the Buddy Project
Bishop Justin spent all day at Marsden School in early September taking time to talk to Primary Students about their Buddy Projects which is a nationwide initiative raising awareness for child welfare. Students personalise a lifesize model of a child which will spend a week being "looked after" by someone in the community. Bishop Justin said to Marsden Primary students "I will look out for your buddies on Buddy Day!". He said the project is important, it is about mobilising the community to take responsibility for all child matters. We love his visits!
