Welcome back to the final term of the year. It promises to be another busy and productive one here at Mary Mac. I would like to start the term on a big positive by congratulating Jhouella Vo in Year 6 for receiving a certificate for an outstanding performance in the Primary Instrumental Solo (Strings) section of the Performing Arts Festival. You don’t often see this award given so it is a huge accolade to Jhouella. It acknowledges all the hours of dedicated practice she has put in. Congratulations Jhouella. We are all very proud of you!

Wow! What an eventful couple of weeks it has been at Mary MacKillop where children were given many opportunities to showcase their talents and join in with the fun at the recent events: Father’s Day fun and games on the oval, Athletics Carnival and Edu Dance concert. Many thanks to all staff involved in coordinating these events which continue to highlight our school’s wonderful community spirit.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the P&F who worked closely with our staff during Book Week this year. Together, they ran a hugely successful Book Fair and a Read-a-thon. Both events raised several thousand dollars, all of which will be donated to the Library to purchase extra books for our students. I’m sure the P&F will give you the exact details once they have them. I was blown away with the success of these activities and the engagement from our community. It is great to see how much we value reading and good old fashioned books! Well done to Year 2 Gold who registered the most participants in the Read-a-thon which means they get to choose what I dress up as at assembly this week. They kindly gave me three choices and you will get to see which one I chose this Friday.
