Message From Miss Melanie

We have had a very busy start to the term, with lots of exciting activities happening before the end of the term. On Thursday the Yr 4/5 students will head to Broome for a St Mary's Taster Day, where they get to see what things they might be able to do when they go to high school. Any families interested in their child attending St Mary's and/or living at the residential college, please let the Admin know and we will connect you to Allen Moore who can help.

We have our Colour Explosion on Friday 4th August, all families are welcome to attend. We are fundraising to improve our senior playground, since we had to remove the nature playground due to termite damage.

We also have our Faction Athletics carnival, inter-school Athletics carnival, Confirmation Mass, and our attendance reward trip to Koolan Island (Yrs 3/4/5). Students in the other years will have the opportunity for reward activities for attendance - details to be sent out in Term 4.

Thank you to all the families for a great attendance start to the term. We are well on track to maintaining our high rate of nearly 80% across the school. Without the fantastic support of our families we would not be able to achieve and maintain this result.

Please note that we have a Pupil Free Day on Friday 11th August.

Looking forward to a great Term 3.

God Bless.

Miss Melanie
