Picasso and His Dog

The Year Five and Six students went to a wonderful show at Cummins Theatre on Tuesday titled “Picasso and His Dog” The show was based on the true story of Pablo Picasso and his dog. The show had a unique blend of puppetry, live performance and art-making which the staff and students enjoyed.

T20 Blast Cricket Cup

The Year Three to Six classes had a great time at the T20 Blast Cricket Cup with Merredin College today.  There was a lovely atmosphere and the St Mary's students showed lots of sportsmanship and most importantly they had fun!  Thank you to parent helpers Marcia Sayers, Narelle Millington and Shay Creagh and to Elisha Criddle for her coordination.
