Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

We have now entered the Lenten period and we remember the three aspects of lent that help us to draw ever closer to God – Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. On Wednesday we received a cross of ashes on our forehead accompanied by the words “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel”. The challenge has been put before us.

 

Shrove Tuesday Breakfast

Thank you to Mr Williams and the SRC for running such an efficient breakfast operation on Tuesday. It was a great morning and the smiles on the faces show they certainly enjoyed it.

 

Phone Contact

When calling the school, please use the main number which is 02 6045 9422. This line is set up to then ‘hunt’ to our other line when occupied, but it doesn’t work the other way around. Thank you!

 

RAS Primary and BISSA Swimming

Congratulations to the students who have been selected to swim in Wagga at the next level of competition next week. We wish them all the best in their event. I know they will do SMMC proud. Miss Julie McCormack will travel with the Primary Team to Wagga next Wednesday and Mr Mathieu Couture will accompany the secondary students on Thursday. Swim well!

 

Yr.7 Vaccinations

Yr.7 Vaccinations will now be held on Wednesday 22nd March at SMMC. Please ensure your paperwork is returned as soon as possible.

 

P&F Meeting

Thank you to those parents who were able to make it to our first P&F Meeting for the year last night. The main fundraisers for the year will be Mother’s Day Raffle, Cake Stalls in Jindera x 2 and our Annual Fete. We are also planning a chocolate fundraiser (after Lent) and have been fortunate enough to secure another BBQ at Bunnings for the 20th May. Last year we came away with a profit of over $1000, so hoping it goes well again this year. P&F Funds were committed to various areas of the school including maths resources for primary and secondary, new vacuum cleaner and tools for 7/8 TAS. Thank you to the P&F for their support of these resources for our school.

 

I hope you all have a terrific weekend.

 

God Bless,

 

Luke Burton (Principal)
