Welcome to 2020 for all our new and returning St Mary’s families. It was wonderful to see our students come streaming back in through the gates to start the new school year.
It has been very exciting to see how the Prep students have settled in. I have been able to spend some time in the Prep classroom and I am amazed at how quickly they have picked up the routines of the classroom and playground.
YEAR 6 LEADERSHIP & OPENING MASS
Mark the date on your calendars!! Friday, February 14th is our Year 6 leadership and opening mass for 2020. We would love to see as many parents as possible at 9:00am, in the church. This is a very special time for our Year 6 students as they receive a blessing from Fr Peter and receive their badges. After mass, we will proceed to the PAH where students will receive their badges and enjoy a special morning tea with their families. Families should receive a special invitation from their children either this week or at the start of next week.
Our sacramental program will begin in a few weeks. If your child is in Year 4, 5 or 6 and has been baptised Catholic, they are able to participate in the program this year. Reconciliation is the first sacrament they will receive, usually towards the end of Term 1. Eligible students will receive a letter to take home once the Reconciliation date has been finalised. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the Sacramental program.
2020 – ST MARY'S YEAR OF KINDNESS
This year, we, as a school community, are adopting the theme of ‘kindness’. Students will discuss in class and explore through the Mercy charism different ways we can be kind – kind to each other, kind to our community, kind to our world. The theme of kindness comes directly from the Mercy charism and the example of the leader of the Sisters of Mercy, Catherine McCauley. All students in the school are currently learning about Catherine through a special RE unit written for our school by myself. Our SRIP survey showed students are very keen to reach out to our community and serve others – just as the Sisters of Mercy did and still do. If you have any ideas around this, we would love to hear from you. Please see below some pictures of kindness in our school – The Year 4/5s using their lunch hour to look after the Preps in the Library.
