St Mary’s School is located in Charleville, Queensland Australia and provides a faith based education
for students from Prep to Year Six.
The St Mary’s School community is challenged to work towards building an environment whereby
all school activities are grounded in values that are congruent with the teachings of Jesus. Being a
rural school, family and community ties are strong and we are committed to maintaining mutually
supportive and inclusive relationships.
This week we welcomed back our Years 2-6 students and it was a very exciting time for our school. To be able to wait at the front gate and welcome everyone back was a joy.
While it is a return to some form of normality for our students, we remind parents that we still have some way to go in terms of managing COVID-19. It is extremely important to ensure that children who are unwell do not attend school. School Assemblies, Masses/Liturgies, School Sport and Excursions/Camps will continue to be put on hold pending further relaxations of social distancing requirements.
One of the great attributes of St Mary’s is the sense of togetherness and community we share. This is very obvious of a morning and afternoon where traditionally we would see parents socialising with each other and the school staff. While this is something we have always encouraged, we do ask parents to be extremely mindful and adhere to social distancing requirements. I thank you for your continued attempts to maintain distancing where possible. If you need to call in briefly to see your child’s teacher or visit the office this does not present a problem.
Students will continue to be instructed on good hygiene practices, handwashing and the regular sanitisation of high-touch surfaces around the school will continue.
Thank you all for the tremendous goodwill and support that you have given us over the last 2 months, it has been very much appreciated.
All the best for the coming weeks,
