2024 School Theme: 'Let Your Light Shine'

The 2024 Diocesan theme of ‘Let Your Light Shine’ is based on Matthew’s Gospel (Mt 5:13-16). Bringing salt to the earth as a follower of Christ gives it flavour, taste and also preserves it. Through the many blessings we receive, the light of God shines on us. We are called to radiate the light we have been given, and to ‘let our light shine’ on others. An act of kindness, sharing our gifts, treating others with respect, are all ways we can share God’s light with the world.

Matthew 5: 13-16

Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything but is thrown out and trampled under foot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to God in heaven.


Diocesan Prayer 2024

Radiant God, You bless us by shining Your light in us, with us, and around us.

Your light brings compassion, warmth and hope in times of lightness and darkness.

May we embrace Your mission to strike the match, ignite the flame, sprinkle the salt and be the light within Your beautiful Creation.

As the salt of the earth, we are called to flavour the lives of others through sharing our gifts with us all.

Enable us to walk alongside others, listen to their stories, light their way, and celebrate their gifts.

Bless us and keep us.

May Your light shine on us and be gracious to us. Look kindly upon us and give us peace.

Let our light shine! Amen
