Parents would be aware of the positive Covid case of a student at Kildare Catholic College last week. Catholic Education are closely monitoring the situation along with NSW Health of course.
We received wonderful news last week regarding the Archdiocesan Athletics Carnival. Due to the carnivals being cancelled the Sports Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn, Sheree Bush, has run a ‘virtual carnival’ using the timed scores from all C & G school carnivals to run the event. Five students from St Mary’s made it into the Western Region Team based on their times/distances in track and field events. They were Ryley Bartlett, Zayn Bartlett, Amara Hockey, Lucas Minogue and Jack Shang.
Overall results were:
Small School’s 4 x 100m Relay 1st St Mary’s Batlowahead of Lake Cargellico, Grenfell and Adelong. What a brilliant result for four fastest students at St Mary’s-Ryley, Jack, Amara and Ryley.
Other top results were Ryley 4th in Long Jump and Zayn 6th in High Jump. Special certificates have been forwarded to the school for those students and they will be presented as soon as we are able to have an assembly.
Congratulations to our four students from Year 5/6 Annabelle, Liam, Amara and Star who represented St Mary’s in public speaking against St Joseph’s, Adelong on Monday morning. Ms Crozier was very impressed with the standard of speeches from her students and the progress they each made by working and practicing on their individual speeches in their own time. The ‘speak off’ was conducted online via MS Teams. A bigger congratulations to Star Maglinte who has now been selected to move to the next level of competition, the Western Region Public Speaking Competition for Year 5.
We pray for Nace, Ethan and Thomas who are preparing to receive the sacrament of First Holy Communion, on Sunday 24th October 2021.
Receiving Jesus on a person’s First Holy Communion Day, is one of the most important events in the lives of Catholics. Nace, Ethan and Thomas have been dedicated in their preparations for their Sacrament, with the support of their family. We look forward to sharing in this special occasion with them.
On Monday, four students from Year 5/6 - Amara, Star, Annabelle and Liam - were selected to represent St Mary’s at the Western Region Speak off. Year 5 students spoke on the topic of ‘It’s Complicated’, while Year 6 spoke on a topic surrounding ‘Stronger Together’. All students spoke well and represented St Mary’s proudly. Star was successful in moving forward to represent our school at the Archdiocesan competition this Friday.
