Dear families, I trust you have had a good week. It’s been a busy, productive week with everyone back and swimming lessons having commenced for our P-2 students. What a thrill it’s been to have had a full, undisrupted, mad week!
Take a look at this weeks Community News! Please read our reminder from the Canteen. We have information on a Summer Reading & Library Challenge, as well as a message from Emmanuel College, our Church bulletin, and some information on onsite tutoring.
Just a reminder to keep an eye on our calendar widgets at the bottom of our School Website home page. The Event Calendar and Quick View Calendar (both the same info - it really comes down to how you like to view it) give you important dates to keep in mind for 2021 and going forward.

During Advent we are called to prepare ourselves for the coming of Jesus. It provides a wonderful reminder to share our presence every day through a letter, a visit, a phone call, or a conversation – something that helps warm and transform someone else’s life.
As we enter into the final month of the school year (I can’t believe it either), it’s time to think about avoiding the ‘summer reading slide’.
Although many other rules around COVID protocols have changed, it is still a requirement that students in Year 3 to 6 wear masks when indoors on school premises, unless a medical exemption applies.Thanks to everyone who has been wearing their mask in the correct way.
A reminder that the Tuckshop is open everyday but only for lunch orders. Lunch orders should be placed in the class tub as children enter the classroom. No over the counter purchases can be made at this stage. Click here to access our Tuck shop menu.
Just a reminder that hats must be worn through until the end of April. Hats should be school legionnaire style or broad brimmed in keeping with our sun smart policy. Please ensure that your children have the correct hat to wear.....NO HAT, NO PLAY.
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.
At St. Mary's we are committed to maintaining a culture of child safety. We implement strategies which demonstrate this through everyday life at the school, guided by the documents listed in the 'Read More' section. Our Child Safety Officer is Margaret Masseni (DP & Wellbeing Leader)
