Ecole Monsignor William Irwin School
Dear MWI Families,
I have called you by name. I love you and you are mine.
Bienvenue! Thank you for being part of our MWI community. This year will be significant. Not only must we maintain our focus on fighting Covid-19 and systemic racism, but we must also find time to celebrate, especially given that this year is our 10-year anniversary. Indeed, even in these tumultuous times we have much to be thankful for. So, let us work together to make this year a memorable one – a year grounded in Learning Through Faith, Hope and Love.
For this 2020-2021 school year, our Division theme is taken from Isaiah 43:1-3, “But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine”. This scripture speaks of hope through the restoration and protection that God promised. When Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the grave, we were given a sense of hope. We had the ultimate assurance that things would get better. Our hope is in God. When we begin to feel overwhelmed, we must remember that “God calls us each by name”.
Hope is the ability to look ahead with love, trust and faith. So, it is fitting that as we begin a new school year, we look to ‘Hope’ as our school-wide theme for the 2020-21 school year.
The start of the school year is such a special time. We begin the year filled with hope and anticipation. We look forward to another wonderful year at MWI, filled with stories of success and learning.
