St Mary's Bulletin

Term 1 - Week 5 (5th March, 2021)

From the Principal

Dear St Mary's School Community

Values in Focus: Responsibility

We have a duty to be accountable to ourselves and to others.

Year Six Reading at Mass

The Year Six students will be reading at Mass on Sunday at 10.30am.  All are welcome to attend.


Thank you to Mrs McDonald and Year 4/5 for leading the school in our first assembly for 2021!  I am told that the students did a great job re-enacting the Parable of the Sower!  I am disappointed to have missed it!

Sacramental Program

The 2021 Sacramental Program will be commencing on Thursday, 11 March at 3.30pm in the Library with an Information Evening for parents of those students who will be receiving a Sacrament this year (Year Three – Reconciliation, Year Four – Eucharist and Year Six – Confirmation)

Buddy Bench

You may have noticed today that our ‘Buddy Bench’ has received an uplift and has a new sign attached to it – this is in keeping with our Wellbeing focus - as a staff, we wanted the ‘Buddy Bench’ to be more prominent for the children.  The message about inclusivity and collaboration reinforces the reason we have a ‘Buddy Bench.  Thank you to Sarah Carr for taking a simple quote and making it come visually alive.
