Delany Day 2016

On Delany Day 2016, we invited students from Patrician Brothers Blacktown and Fairfield, Brigidine Sisters from Randwick and St Ives, Holy Cross Ryde and All Saints Liverpool to join with us in celebrating the life and teachings of our founder, Bishop Daniel Delany.

Daniel Delany was born in 1747 to a relatively well-to-do family, however, his father died young and he was sent to live with his aunts in a nearby village, Mountrath.  Daniel was encouraged by the local Parish Priest, Fr Lawlor, to enter the priesthood, which he did in 1770.  He then returned to Ireland in 1776 to educate the children and teachers and establish his catechetical program.  Consecrated as Bishop in 1783, Daniel continued his teachings, helping the sisters and brothers to educate the young in their finding of Christ.

At Delany, students were treated to a number of activities to help them in their understanding of the life of Daniel Delany, with the theme, "The Cross is the sure way to find Christ".  A Patrician jukebox, the Daniel Delany election campaign as well as a number of workshops led by staff, a moving liturgy and of course, lunch, were all enjoyed by the students.

    A group of Y9 students were excited to take part in their first Western Sydney University Day at the Parramatta South campus. The theme was 'Rise to the Challenge' and, along with several other schools from the local area, students took part in activities that explored their multiple intelligences and problem solving skills. The highlight of the day was exploring the campus as part of a scavenger hunt! πŸ•΅οΈπŸ§©Students are excited for the next part of the program that will take place in Y10.
