Wednesday, October 13th was a special day in Our Lady’s Bower and the LSU community as students and staff celebrated the Order’s foundations on the 200th anniversary of the birth of our Founder, Fr Jean Baptiste Debrabant.

In the days leading up to the event, the school joined with sister schools throughout the UK to highlight how the LSU has created a lasting legacy to take inspiration from and how the Order’s vision is being lived out in the day-to-day life of our school. Six short assembly videos were created and shared by each of the schools, to allow students to see and connect with other members of the LSU community. Our Bower girls created a video to show how our school enables us to empower each other to live life to the full, showing God’s love in the world.

On the day, members of the Religion department led all students on a short pilgrimage to various places of significance in the school. Students took time out to reflect on the important role the LSU Sis

ters and the Bower convent has had in shaping the Bower family we are today. Our school mosaic was just one of the places of significance visited during the pilgrimage. Created by students and staff during Arts Week 2019, it has come to symbolise the strong connections shared by all our Bower girls, past and present and the hopes the school has for each student as they forge a future and head out on their life’s journey.

Thank you to all students and staff for their participation in the day’s wonderful celebrations.
