Atraditional dance presented by four
young Vietnamese Sisters, gorgeously
clad in aqua, emerald, flame red

gave a wonderful presentation of the news
"Through the Decades", complemented by
images and music of the times.
Eighty year old Sr Cabrini Boyle RSJ, who
taught at St Benedict's as a young Sister,

members of the community.
As part of the celebration, a photo of Sr
Cabrini accompanying children across the
road fifty years ago was recreated; same Sr
Cabrini, different children!
In 1962 Sr Cabrini escorted these St Benedict s children across the road (above).
In 2012, she is still assisting at Edgewor th. The Editor would love to hear from
any of the 62 children !
