‘Sisters of St Joseph Award’ 2024

Recently the Diocesan Schools community gathered for the Called to Serve Mass that celebrates the commitment of our teachers and support staff.  Bishop Michael Kennedy who presided at the Mass in the Sacred Heart Cathedral said the occasion was an opportunity for the Catholic school community to express their commitment to serve the mission of Jesus Christ in the ministry of Catholic school education


It is also the occasion for the presenting of the Emmaus Awards.  These awards recognise the significant and often extraordinary contribution made by individuals and communities in many areas of school life.  Bishop Michael Kennedy and Head of Catholic Schools, Steve Lemos presented the awards.


The Sisters of St Joseph Award given each year in recognition of the Sisters’ contribution to education in the diocese over many years is given for exceptional leadership.  This year Sr Carmel Hanson, Congregational Leader of the Sisters, was delighted to present the award to Crystal Simon of the Holy Name Primary School, Forster.  The citation spoke of Crystal’s leadership in faith, and her work for equity and justice in the Great Lakes communities.

Congratulations to Crystal and the many others whose service has been recognised and celebrated.
