We have gathered as a school community to thank God for the gift of these newlyelected - young, enthusiastic and dynamic leaders of our school. Today is a very special dayfor our school as the school bestows the governing charges to our office bearers for the year 2011 – 12. It is indeed a great honour to be chosen leaders as dealers in inspiration, honestyand hope.Just as the wheel in the unity of its components (hub, spokes, rim) moves throughdifferent contact points to complete a cycle, we as a school community move through thisacademic year progressively . Let us pray for the spirit of unity and collaboration among theschool community for greater effectiveness in singing ‘Bind us together’.

Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together with cordsThat cannot be broken. Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together, Bind us together with love.
