Older members of St Marys school community would be saddened to hear of the passing of Honk Mulcahy. Honk was the school cleaner for many years and always had a smile and friendly word for staff and students. We extend our sympathy to his family and friends.
Last Friday four of St Mary’s Year 5 students expressed their interest in participating in an online zoom session for a Mini Vinnies Inter-School Social Justice workshop.
Larna Pilon, Freddie Bell, Amelia- Rose Blampied and Marlee Wendt joined other schools from our Archdiocese and had in depth discussions with the central theme being RESPECT.
One of the organisers, Matt Wilson sent an email to state that they, 'Were very pleased by the maturity of discussion and the participation from each group.' Well done, Larna, Freddie, Amelia-Rose and Marlee for being great ambassadors for our school.
As we hastily approach Advent, the season in which we prepare for the birth of Jesus, we pray:
Dear Heavenly Father, this Advent season, we especially are in need of peace. War rages on in our world. It impacts the daily lives of millions in different ways. This year, as much as ever, we need Jesus, Prince of Peace, in our world and in our hearts. During Advent in 2022, we pray that Jesus transforms our world as we await His coming again.

Circus Splendida is a show filled with colour, humour, energy and a great story. It features clowns, jugglers, hula hoop performers, the tiny tumblers and lots more! It revolves around one night in the life of a circus troupe that is competing for the opportunity to go on a fantastic world tour.
All of the various acts in the circus troupe try their best to present a fabulous performance but fall just short of the mark. To the surprise of everyone it's the bumbling quartet of clowns who emerge as the unlikely heroes of the show and along the way provide lots of laughter.

Sunscreen, underwear, swim shirt if they require one, towel, plastic bag to put wet belongings in, drink bottle, goggles( if they require them), and if at the squad level they will need their flippers and kickboard.

The Finance Department of Canberra Goulburn is slowly transitioning its current finance system to an updated system that supports Compass. This will impact those with direct debit fee payments.
St Mary's currently uses Compass for our student information, event consent and payment, school reports and absence notes.
The first step in this process is to ask all families who have direct debits setup by the school to setup their own BPAY periodic payment using their bank account. The periodic payment must be setup using BPAY.
If you have a direct debit setup you are welcome to call the school office now for help however we will call all parents impacted and discuss changing your payment. We will cancel the schools direct debit from your account once BPay is in place.
Our 2023 Kinder students will start school on Wednesday the 1st of February with all our other students. This is first day for students of all classes.
Parents of Kinder students are advised that our Kinder students will then have the next four Wednesdays off. Kinder students get very tired and this break will help them to remain keen and focused.
The Kinder days of for 2023 will be Wedneday the 8th, 15th and 22nd of February and the final rest day will be Wedneday the 1st of March.
