Last Friday was 'moving day' and I am pleased to report that all went to plan and our new classroom arrangements are in place. Year 2/3/4 is in the old library and look very comfortable with their additional space. The new library is set up in the old Year 5/6 room and Year 5/6 look like they are 'back home' in their classroom from 2018. Although it was a big day last Friday all went smoothly with minimal disruption. Thank you must go to staff who spent additional time over the weekend to ensure lessons were back to normal by Monday.
Next year St Mary's have registration which means we need to spend time going over our policy documents in detail. This is a good opportunity for staff to revise and renew dated policies. The first policy we will be looking at is our Pastoral Care and Student Wellbeing Policy. This is a significant document which will also require consultation with Community Council and then parents.
Last Sunday students presented Liturgy in Mass. We had ten students representing with their families and it was a beautiful celebration of the meaning of the Trinity.
Thank you to all families who came along and enjoyed a cuppa afterwards. Ms Baron was there as well and she says hello to everyone at St Mary's.
Many thanks to the children (and parents) who joined with the Parish to celebrate Holy Trinity Sunday. A yummy morning tea was enjoyed afterwards.
Our school and parish community are invited to join us for our Yr 5/6 Mass 12:00 noon Thursday 27th June. We will be serving pumpkin and chicken and corn soups with some crunchy bread for lunch after Mass. A great opportunity to visit our school.
On Friday the promised big move was completed. Everyone got in and did their bit. Year 2/3/4 are now settled into their new big space and loving the extra elbow room. Year 5/6 now also have that little bit extra leg room.
The library is looking great in its new home, and Mrs Murray is very happy in te new space.
We had a look at our soft plastics bin this week. This is the bin that goes to landfill. St Mary's would like to get this bin down to zero waste. Try to avoid using non reusable yoghurt containers, cling wrap chip packets etc.
Cling wrap will be a thing of the past with handcrafted reusable food wraps. While some contain beeswax, there are also vegan wraps available. These can be reused for up to one year and are great for covering leftover dinner or salad bowls, or wrapping half eaten food, cut vegetables and sandwiches.
