At long last, the new faction names for Orana were unveiled at Assembly last Friday. As mentioned in last week's newsletter, a committee comprised of School Board, P&F, parish and staff members met and selected the names from the many nominations, which had come in from our community. We are pleased to announce that the names for our four factions are as follows:

  • Blue - MacKillop (Mary MacKillop)
  • Red - Salvado (Bishop Dom Salvado - founder of New Norcia)
  • Gold - Francis (St Francis of Assisi)
  • Green - Ward (Mary Ward - founder of the Loreto Sisters. The first principal of Orana was a Loreto Sister.)

Thank you once again to everyone who took the time to put in nominations.
