It was wonderful having Bishop Don Sproxton in our community last week! He was very affirming of all the good things happening here at Mary Mac, especially our focus on the Making Jesus Real programme. Bishop Don is a big fan of helping our students trying to lead their lives as Jesus led his. This means being welcoming, encouraging, thankful, inclusive, enthusiastic and remembering to say sorry when we hurt or offend others. The whole ministry of Jesus was very much based around the key values of forgiveness and healing. By leading our lives as Jesus did, we too can be forgiving and healing members of our community.
Gratitude Reflection Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.
Interschool Athletics Carnival This Friday, our talented athletes will represent our school at the interschool athletics carnival. Mr Power has already sent all the details home and parents are most welcome to come along and support our students. I’m sure they will continue to show great sportsmanship and do their very best on Friday. So far this year, our students have done really well at interschool competitions. I believe a lot of this has to do with so many of them coming to school at 8am every morning and playing extra sport. I have noticed a definite improvement in their fitness and skill level since we started doing this a few years ago.
School Disco The P&F are putting the final touches on this year’s disco which will be held on Friday 29 October. Once again, it will be an outdoor disco held on the oval. I’m looking forward to seeing as many students as possible coming along to the final P&F function for the year.
All Saints and All Souls November is the month where our Church remembers our family and friends who have already gone back to God. We keep them in our prayers throughout the month.
