It is the second last week of the school year.
It is lovely to be revisiting St Mary’s again. I have had a lot to do in the past with St Mary’s dating back to 2011 in my varying capacities with Catholic Education. It is a real pleasure to be helping out teachers and students this week in Chris’ absence. I have been made to feel very welcome by all.
I am pleased to be with you this week to help support the school community while Mrs Baron and Mrs Richards are away. We all extend our sympathies to Chris, Liz and their families with the passing of their lovely mother Gabrielle Mary Ryan (nee Butz). Gabrielle’s funeral mass is at 11am this Friday in the church. May she rest in peace.
It’s an exciting time for the children, teachers and families too. The Christmas holiday period is a time for rest, celebration and a time to be thankful for many things in our family and community lives. It is a busy time at school this week. The children’s routines are somewhat interrupted by practices for the Christmas Carols tonight, Year 6 Thanksgiving Mass and the Awards afternoon on Monday next and then back to focusing on school work. I am getting to know their names as I visit the classrooms every day.
The Community Council met last night for the last time for the 2018 school year. I wish to thank them for making me feel so welcome too.
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week. I look forward to seeing you at Carols by Candle Light tonight.

Kris Kringle has begun!
- Monday 10 to Thursday 13 December- Students are to provide a small gift for their KK every day and secretly place it in their class basket in the front foyer. Gifts will be distributed later in the day.
- Friday 14 December- Students are to bring in their final gift for their KK, to the maximum value of $10. Each class will have a special gifting time during the day where KK's are revealed.
This very special activity places emphasis on the action of giving, and gracefully receiving. It reflects our christian values especially in the time of advent as we prepare for the Christmas event.
Intensive swimming for Years 2 to 6 will be conducted THIS Friday the 14th December from 2.00pm to 2.45pm. Students will walk over to the pool.
Please sign and submit the permission note which was sent out through the Szapp app & email last week if you were away last Friday.
We are asking if families could donate some sandwiches, savoury food, cakes or slice to assist the Catholic Church ladies with the catering for the funeral for Mrs Gay Ryan.
Food can be dropped at the RSL Club auditorium. Any queries please call Doreen Holland 69491150.
Requiem Mass to celebrate the life of Gabrielle Mary Ryan (née Butz) will be held at St Mary's Church this Friday 14th December commencing at 11am.
