All Saints Day

Wishing the SMCM community a blessed All Saints feast day!

On November 1st, we celebrate well known saints, like St Peter and St Mary of the Cross, as well as the saint-like qualities that we demonstrate.

Let us celebrate those people who live or have lived a life which is inspired by the words and actions of Jesus.

Is there someone in your life you consider to be a Saint? What qualities do they display that are similar to an older Saint? Take a moment to reflect with your family as you participate in our All Saints Day Liturgy.

27th of October, Prep Special Lunch

To celebrate our return to school we had a Special Party Lunch catered for by Lunch Mums! It went off with a hit and it was obvious that the children had a blast whilst consuming delicious foods such as fairy bread, party pies, sausage rolls, biscuits, lollies, fruit salad and lollies!!! To burn off their excess energy, children boogied to some tunes and had a play on the playground! We bet they came home a little more exhausted than usual! Foundation students, thanks for making the day so much fun.

  • I wonder if you have enjoyed coming back to school?
  • I wonder what other special things you have done to celebrate the end of lock down?

Welcome Back Everyone!

After another long stretch of remote learning our Foundation students returned to school. There was great joy on Monday, as they arrived in their uniforms, but there was some nervousness too. The road has been long,  but they have been outstanding in their positivity and perseverance. They have faced this challenge with courage and with kindness, standing ‘strong and tall’ in the Mary MacKillop spirit. We are so proud of each and every one of them.

We have packed so much learning into our first three days.  We have read books that teach us about kindness and how that grows. We have checked in to see how we are feeling. We have headed outside and explored our environment. We checked in on our chickens and held their warm eggs in our hands. We climbed over rocks and crawled under trees and just when we think we can do no more we bounce back up and keep on going.  

We are learning how to be together again and enjoying listening to each other’s stories and laughter. Welcome back everyone!
