Dear families, We have made it to the end of another term! I know it’s been a challenging one for many with so many in our community being unwell. We are starting to see glimpses of the gorgeous weather that will great us next term. Let’s hope we get to enjoy some of it over the break.
After another fantastic experience of the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) this year the results are in and we could not be prouder of the boys and girls of St Mary's who volunteered to sit this competition!
We will have two school clousure days in Term 4. Please make a note in your diary.
We hope that everyone has a relaxing and fun filled holiday break. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday 3rd October to begin our final term for 2023.
It's everyone's favourite time of year again...the Scholastic Book Fair! Come and visit the Book Fair in the Hall, after school, from October 4 to 12. We have so many books and fun things to look at!
For this weeks Community News we have the Church Bulletin, Emmanuel College news, and Westgate and Quantin Binnah have some fun activities planned for over the school holidays with their vacation care programs.
A reminder that school will finish at 1.30 pm on Friday 16th September for the Term 3 holidays. Families of Year 5/6 students who will be on camp should check communications from the 5/6 team regarding what time they will return. School will resume for Term 4 on Monday 3rd October.
We are proud to say that we have been a SUNSMART SCHOOL for 26 years now and as such as of Thursday 1st September students will be required to wear sunsmart school hats when outdoors, at play and while learning.
We would like to give you a reminder about some general school practices and procedures that we have in place in the name of Child Safety. All parents/guardians are required to speak with the office staff and sign in on the iPad if needing to enter the school during school hours.
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)

As I welcome you to another school year, I would like to introduce you to one of our key priorities this year: To strengthen the Catholic identity of St Mary’s as an active and prayerful, contemporary faith community.
