Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Term 3, I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing break and were able to spend time recharging the batteries ready for another busy term at St Mary’s. While it was lovely to see the sunshine during the day, those cold mornings were an invitation to stay longer in bed!
We have some new faces amongst our school community, and I extend a warm welcome to Indiana, Brax and Addison Bainbridge and Ellie Clark.
We also welcome Mr Ben Taylor, as our Foundation/ One teacher. Ben is a familiar face at our school and a highly regarded teacher and colleague.
We begin the busy weeks of rehearsing plays, practising song items and recitations for The Yarram Eisteddfod. This is a highly anticipated and wonderful community event which allows our students every opportunity to embrace their artistic talents. I have already witnessed the up and coming play from our senior space and it is starting to shape. I also find myself singing along to the songs from foundation/1 and grade 2/3 …. I can’t get them out of my head!
I would like to congratulate Macy and Ivy Sampson who were initiated into the Catholic Church during the holidays. May you embrace your faith journey and all that it will offer you.
Let us take the time to embrace our learning at St Mary’s, and thrive through the support and challenges that it offers us.
Enjoy the beginning of term everyone.
