From the Principal
I had the real pleasure last Thursday of attending the Catholic Schools Touch Carnival and (briefly) the Netball Carnival.
This was a really fantastic showcase of the talent and commitment of our students. The year 5 and 6 students who played were such cracking ambassadors for Mary MacKillop - but so too were the older students who gave up their time to coach and referee the Touch and umpire the Netball. Thank you so much! It made me really proud. Thank you also to the parents who gave up time to support.
I want to thank all in the community for the way that you have responded to the renewed guidelines of the Chief Health Officer. I know that, even though we are approaching the third year of the pandemic, any changes to the everyday or anxieties about its spread can cause real concern. Thank you to the students, staff and parents who have masked up, thank you to the parents who have kept children home despite the challenges this brings, and thank you so much for the messages of support that have come into the school.
Whatever happens with the spread of the Delta variant, we are ready to prioritise the learning and wellbeing of our students.
The Feast Day of St Mary MacKillop is celebrated on Sunday, 8 August (but as a College we will celebrate today). At times of difficulty - and we have had a few of those with this pandemic - we should remember her words, 'God will carry you safely through every struggle'.
Let's look after each other as best we can until we are through this.
Please stay safe and take care.
