St Mary’s School
St Mary's School
St Mary’s School provides an education that endeavours to equip each child with the Christian values and life skills necessary to meet the challenges of a changing world.
If I can be confident of anything, it is that our community will remain strong and connected during this global event. Our faith and values really come to the surface in times of trouble. There have been so many instances this week of people working together, looking after and supporting each other around the school. I have often said that you need to look to our children for a yardstick of behaviour. Sure, they make mistakes, but are honest in their failings and more than not, take ownership for their actions.
Remote Learning Delivery
Separate communication has been sent regarding this, but so you are aware, our school is well placed in the unlikely event of a school closure. Our focus is always on our students and how we will continue their learning if this occurred. If you would like more information, please come and see me or speak to your child’s class teacher. As new information comes to hand, we will pass this onto you.
Mass and Reconciliation Postponed
Bishop Michael has communicated a restriction to Holy worship celebrations effectively immediately and up until the 1st of April. This includes all masses and extends to sacraments; this therefore impacts our First Reconciliation scheduled for next Thursday the 24th. You can still access services through Channel 10 Sunday worship or online. Once restrictions are lifted, we will endeavour to reschedule a date for our Year 3 students to complete their Reconciliation.
