St Mary's Bulletin

Term 2 - Week 1 (1 May, 2020)

From the Principal

Dear St Mary's School Community

Welcome Back

Welcome Back to Term Two!  It was lovely to have some children back at school on Wednesday and I am looking forward to welcoming even more back on Monday.  It has been wonderful to see all the students engage with their learning whether at home or at school!  St Mary’s is slowly starting to come back to life in what is a challenging time for everyone – the staff and I are really looking forward to the day when all the children are back at school!

Returning to School

A reminder to those families that are returning on Monday.  If you have collected your child’s pack from school please ensure that the pack comes back to school as the children will have to use the resources at school. 

Also, parents and caregivers are not permitted on school property other than to drop off or pick up their children, at which time they must not exit their vehicle. 

· If parents and caregivers are walking their children to and from school, they should undertake their drop off or pick up at the gate that bus students access.

· PK-Pre-primary students are to enter the Early Years space via the side gate – a staff member from each year level will be waiting at the gate to collect children and bring them to class.  If these families have siblings in Year One to Six, the siblings can enter the school via the front steps.

· Year One to Year Six children are to use the back car park for pick up/drop off before and after school. 

· Parents/caregivers coming to school throughout the day to drop something off, collect a child for an appointment, etc will need to notify the office and a staff member will escort your child to the car, collect your items from you for your child, etc.


Whilst ANZAC Day would have been commemorated a little differently this year due to COVID19 restrictions we too, as a whole school were not able to acknowledge and remember the sacrifice that the ANZACS made for us over 100 years ago at Gallipoli.  Instead this year, teachers acknowledged the day with their own classes.

Winter Uniform

All students are expected to be in their winter uniform for Term Two and Three.  I understand that due to the constant changes with COVID19 parents may not have had time to order (or even think about) winter uniforms.  Therefore, to enable families to organise their winter uniforms there will be a two week transition period and all students must be in the correct winter uniform for the start of Week Three (Monday, 11 May). 

Order forms for the uniform shop can be downloaded from the St Mary’s School website.  Alternatively, parents can email the order in directly to Ms Jasmin Holmes at or they can call the office on 90411907.  Orders can then be collected via the office or sent home with children.  Due to restrictions on people entering the school grounds the physical uniform shop will be closed for the time being.

Winter Uniform for Years One to Six students is as follows:


  • Black lace up leather type shoes 

  • White socks with no logos or Grey stockings 

  • School skirt 

  • White shirt with maroon logo 

  • Formal maroon jumper with gold logo 


  • Black lace up leather type shoes 

  • Grey socks with no logos 

  • Grey school pants 

  • White shirt with maroon logo 

  • Formal maroon jumper with gold logo


    • School tracksuit with sport uniform. 

    God Bless and have a lovely weekend with your families, 

    Ms Adriana Coniglio


    Let us Pray

    Mary, Help of Christians, we fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.

    Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of God’s holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

    For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

    In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

    We come you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
