Splash of Christmas

Dear  Families,

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow we invite our students to bring a gold coin donation and to wear a splash of colour to show their Christmas Spirit.

Please note :students are asked not to wear casual clothes, but rather add a splash of colour via a small way.

We are all looking forward to our last day together!

Reminders for Friday December 11


A reminder that tomorrow is our Advent Friday Fundraiser for St Vincent de Paul. Tomorrow, we have been asked to:

DRESS AS A CHARACTER FROM THE NATIVITY STORY and bring a gold coin donation.

Last week, SMCM students raised $500! Can we raise the same amount this week?


Library Books to be returned

There are still some library books that need to be returned. Please check under beds/in cupboards and return these as soon as possible. Thanks!

Advent Friday tomorrow – Friday, December 4th

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our second Advent Friday! We are raising money for St Vincent de Paul, especially to help families at Christmas time. If you participate in Advent Fridays,  please bring a gold coin donation. I wonder how much money we might make to help others?

Tomorrow, please bring a gold coin and wear a splash of Advent!

  • Which colour might that be?
  • Can you name a symbol of Advent?
  • How will you get your heart ready for Jesus in Advent?



Advent Fridays – St Vinnies Christmas Appeal

Every year during the time of Advent we come together to support those who are in need during Christmas.  Normally we would bring in donations of food, toiletries and toys. 

However, with the year that we have all experienced in 2020, we have decided to have 4 Advent Fridays (like we do for Lent).

Over the next 4 weeks, each Friday will have a theme based on our Advent learning. Each Friday we ask you to bring in a gold coin donation.

Working alongside St Vinnies, with the money raised from our Fridays over Advent, we as a school community will donate this to the St Vinnies Christmas Appeal.


Come dressed in your school uniform and wear a symbol of what your hopes are for our world!

Bring a gold coin donation


Library Books

Dear Parents,

All library books need to be returned to school next Friday and there will be no more borrowing until 2021.  Please look carefully for any overdue library books and return these also.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Book Week Parade

What an amazing day we had celebrating our curious creature/character from a book. Everyone looked sensational and the creativity was so amazing to see.

A big thank you to our wonderful families for the support this week, it was very much appreciated. It’s been a big transition back to learning at school and we are all exhausted so we hope you can all enjoy a restful 3 days.

Reminder: Don’t forget to check out our live Twitter feed of our parade from this morning!

Following on from yesterday’s post about Book Week. All students will need to wear their runners as it is a Thursday and they will still have their specialist subjects.

Many thanks for the ongoing support!

Dear Families,

What an amazing day we had being back together again and what glorious sunshine we had for our picnic and games afternoon! It brought us so much joy watching everyone reconnect and have so much fun together. We are sure we sent home some tired, but very happy students.

Thank you to everyone who remembered to send along summer hats, bookbags and orange pencilcases. If these weren’t at school today can you please pop them into your child’s bag tonight-much appreciated!

Please find our Term 4 Weekly Planner below and note that the Wallabies have a different sport day.

We hope you all enjoyed a little ‘me’ time today!
