- 2023 Year 7 Orientation Day
- VacSwim Enrolments
This week, we are celebrating one of the most important events on our calendar, which is of course, Mary MacKillop Week. We are having all our usual events such as the Art Exhibition in the Church which Mr Miller and his team of helpers have set up. It highlights the talent of our budding young artists, and we all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Did you know that Vincent Van Gogh only ever sold one painting whilst he was alive? Now, his works are all considered masterpieces! The exhibition runs from 1 August until 12 August. We also had a special whole school Mass this morning to celebrate the life and achievements of Mary. This was followed up with our traditional cup cake day with our classrooms being open for parents and grandparents to visit. This Friday, our Year 6 students will run a fete to raise money for the missions for the St Joseph sisters around the world. All money raised goes to help underprivileged people so please give generously. As our school is named after Mary MacKillop, it is a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon this unique and remarkable woman who is still Australia’s only saint.
Welcome back to what we hope will resemble more of a normal school term. I too joined the ranks and tested positive to Covid at the very end of last term. Luckily, it was a very mild dose, and I hardly had any symptoms. However, there is concern about new variants causing reinfections and there is a push for people to wear masks again.
