Hello Parents and Carers,
I feel that I have bombarded your inboxes over the past few days so I will keep this report short. Can I please ask you to read emails from St Mary’s Schoolszine carefully, particularly the two from today for the most up to date information.
Staff are working hard to transition into the remote learning model. To assist us we really need to know if you have internet and also an iPad charger. Please respond to the email seeking this information.
Resource packs should be available tomorrow. We will email when they are available for collection.
In the meantime, I want to thank parents for their understanding in all communications I have had so far. You are making this ‘transition’ easier by understanding the gravity of the COVID 19 situation. We need to continue working in partnership to support our students, your children, to continue with their learning the best way we can.
Thank you and I’ll be in touch.
It has been a long week and it's only Tuesday...
KINDNESS - noun
instead of reminding them
of their weakness
Year 6 Leaders are selling raffle tickets in our Easter raffle. There are three prizes, raffle books will go home this afternoon. Tickets are .50cents each
Money raised will go toward the schools Project Compassion contribution.
We hope to draw the raffle just before Easter.
When this is over,
May we never again take for granted
A handshake with a stranger
Full shelves at the store
Conversations with neighbours
A crowded theatre
Friday night out
The taste of communion
A routine checkup
A school rush each morning
Coffee with a friend
The stadium roaring
Each deep breath
A boring Tuesday
When this ends
May we find
That we have become
More like the peeple
We wanted to be
We were called to be
We hoped to be
And may we stay
That way - better
For each other
Because of the worst.
