Faction Athletics Carnival
Last Monday on a perfect September day the school held its athletics carnival with McCormack the Champion Team on the day. With staff doing a wonderful job conducting the events and assistance from Mercy College and Servite College students, the day ran smoothly with a combination of individual and team game events for our children. Mr Power would like to thank staff for all their assistance and for parents who came along to support their children as they participated.

Making Jesus Real at Mary MacKillop
Making Jesus Real (MJR) is a programme designed to foster a relationship with Jesus that is real to the students and relevant to their daily lives. MJR is centred around the belief that we are the image of Jesus to all people around us. We are His representatives, and our actions should reflect His values taught in the Gospel. Jesus told us that we are all part of His family and that the way we treat others should be reflective of the way we would treat Him.
MJR has a simple message – Jesus is part of our lives and can change the way we live; that we can make Jesus real through our daily actions and words. An important aspect of MJR is learning how to recognise Spirit of Jesus (SOJ) moments in an encounter with a friend, a cheerful greeting, a smile, a wink of encouragement, an offer of a helping hand or an unexpected compliment.
During recess and lunchtimes, our staff will be recognising students who demonstrate the Spirit of Jesus by awarding them with an MJR peg. These students will be acknowledged at our weekly Assembly and their photo will be taken and displayed in the undercover area on our MJR display board as an example of how we make Jesus real within our school community. Our Kindergarten students do not attend Assembly, however, they will also be identified for their SOJ moments and displayed proudly on our MJR board.
Students will also be learning about what is means to be a WESTIE. ‘W.E.S.T.I.E.’ is an acronym that provides a meaningful platform for students, teachers and parents to ‘live’ the values of MJR on a daily basis. The acronym stand for:
Welcoming – being friendly and welcoming to others
Encouraging – saying positive things to self and others
Saying Sorry – admitting personal wrong doing and taking steps to repair relationships
Thankful – showing appreciation to others
Inclusive – being inclusive in words and actions to others
Enthusiastic – showing a positive attitude towards school work, peers and teachers
We look forward to celebrating the many Spirit of Jesus moments that take place at Mary MacKillop every day.
What a wonderful effort last Friday from our families supporting Father Mark’s Banana Run, we collected $843.45 to help the homeless in Perth.
Congratulations to Aedan Latour (1G) on the arrival of his baby sister Evie.
Also a huge congratulations to Mary Brown (6B) on the arrival of little sister Courtney.

What a great day it turned out to be. The day started with many students getting colourful hair for the sports carnival! It was a fantastic way to build momentum for the day and show support for the teams. A big thank you to everyone who helped get coloured hairspray on the students who visited us.
The sausage sizzle was a big hit at lunch time, we nearly sold out of the 500 hotdogs. We would like to give a massive thank you to Frank and James who cooked some great hotdogs for everyone to enjoy and thank Amy Lam for coming and helping during our mad rush at lunchtime. The sausages were from a local butcher Carne Cucina Quality Butchers.
What a great performance put on by all the Gold classes, everyone did a terrific job.
Congratulations to the winners of science week. We would also like to congratulate all the students who participated in the science enrichment program with their great displays, there are some budding scientists at the school.

Did you know that when your child banks with School Banking, not only do they learn about the value of money and build their savings, but the P & F and the School benefit? Your child earns interest on their savings account and is rewarded with prizes from the Rewards Program. Every time your child banks 10 times with a minimum deposit of 5c, the P & F receives $5. The P & F also receive a bonus for the number of students that bank in the year. So get involved and contact our School Banking Coordinators and parent volunteers: Amy Lam (email@example.com) and Dee Wright (Dee-Beau@live.com.au).
Don’t forget to bring your deposit wallets to school on Wednesday’s.
