Dear families, What wonderful weather we have been blessed with this week. Last weekend, we commenced our Sacramental program with several children in Year 3/4 receiving the Sacrament of Penance.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our mothers and special ladies in the lives of our children, a very Happy Mother's Day. We hope you have a relaxing day and are well looked after by the boys in your home.
Our next Walk/Ride to School Day will be held on Friday 14th May. Although the weather is getting cooler it would be wonderful to see as many students & their families coming to school in an active way as possible.
Hi, I’m Marg Jones. I’ve worked at St Mary’s for 11 years as a Learning Support Officer. I really enjoy working with the wonderful students at St Mary’s and helping them with their learning. I’ve worked mainly in the junior area of the school & this year I’m working in the 3/4 area.
Congratulations to our students who competed in the Cross Country today. Everyone ran well and is to be commended. A special congratulations the folowing children who earned ribbons in their race. They will go on to compete in the Divisional CC on 26th May.
The St Mary's Parents and Friends Committee will be holding its Annual General Meeting Wednesday May 12th at 7.30pm.
The Big Life Journal has some great advice for those times when you engage in a conversation with your kids that goes something like this... “How was your day?”“Fine.” “What did you learn today?”“Nothing.”Yes, these types of conversations happen in lots of homes.

How can we find a greater sense of purpose and meaning? Being part of something bigger than ourselves - and focusing on the things we value - is vital for our wellbeing. So let's take time to reflect on what we care about this month and prioritise the things that matter.
The Premiers Reading Challenge encourages children and students from birth to year 10 to read a set number of books over the year and record their efforts online. Since the Challenge first began in 2005, more than 3 million students have read nearly 51 million books.
Fun & Fitness is held every Wednesday morning from 8 - 8.30am on the basketball court. Sessions are run by Mrs Masseni and are open to all children from Prep - Year 6. Parents and siblings are also welcome to attend and join in the fun but there is no obligation to stay.
After a year where we were not able to celebrate any parish Sacraments, I am very excited to be able to announce the dates for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation.
In an effort to reduce rubbish at school and maintain our good hygiene practices, our Nude Food initiative will remain in place. Families are encouraged to send food to school in re-useable containers and students are required to take home any wrappings that they bring to school.
We have several students in our school that are anaphylactic, which means they have serious allergic reactions. In our particular case students have an allergies to peanuts, macadamias, cashews, almonds, all tree nuts, kiwi, egg, prawns and salmon.
