Warmly welcomed by Mr John Finn, Principal, staff members new to our four Lasallian schools in Melbourne gathered at St Bede's College, Mentone on 12 March. As usual, Mark Micallef of St Bede's successfully undertook the task of finding a date suitable for everyone, coordinating the day, and being part of the presenting team which also included Ria Greene and Anthony Cummins fsc (St Bede's), Martin Callanan (St James East Bentleigh) and John Cantwell fsc (Lasallian Mission Services). Sessions invited people to meet one another, and to reflect on and discuss several topics: the Purpose and Focus of Catholic Schools; the Lasallian Story in the context of the broader story; the Lasallian Family 'together and by association'; Lasallian Educational Values. As in previous years, this was the first of four meetings, to be hosted by a different Melbourne college each term, with the final celebration held at Graduates restaurant, St John's Regional College Dandenong.
