School Song, Prayer and Acknowledgement of Country

OUR SCHOOL SONG - Today

Gathering here, our story is clear
One community today
We honour our past, see the spirit last
As we journey on our way
On the path of friendship, path of faith
The love of Christ to light the way
Family and friends let’s celebrate!
Our work here not yet done
Our story’s just begun, today

Sisters of Charity,
you built this community
Our gratitude runs deep
Your dedication as you lived
your life for us, so much to give
Our love is yours to keep
Your legacy is strong,
it will be ours to carry on
Weaving all the colours of our lives
Together we hold, your story to be told, today

Through the years, we’ve come so far
Stella Maris shining star - star

Gathering here, our story so clear
As we celebrate today
United as one, together so strong
Our destiny awaits
The wisdom of the ones before,
leads us through an open door
The future in our hands, we are alive!

Bless all those so dear,
we honour you right here, today

Bless all those so dear,
we honour you right here, today
 

OUR SCHOOL PRAYER

Heavenly Father, we give thanks for Stella Maris Catholic School.
May we be a safe, caring and friendly place where everyone is valued and respected.
Be with us in our learning. Be with us in our play.
Guide us as we grow in faith, hope and love.
May the love of Christ urge us on as we reverence the story of all people.
We ask this through your son Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
Amen
