The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many to experience feelings of isolation and despair as our everyday lives change on a daily basis.

In the first lockdown, community initiatives such as painting rainbows and teddy bears in windows helped develop a sense of connection and sparked joy for many. However, months on, and in the face of ongoing restrictions, such tangible symbols of hope have begun to diminish. 

This week, the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle encouraged students and families to renew their sense of HOPE by inviting families to create a poster with the word HOPE and place it in their front yard or front window.

It has been a fun activity for children while learning from home and one that we hope will inspire many in the community as they go about their exercise. 

Take joy in looking through the magnitude of hope our students are sharing.
