St Mary of the Cross Mackillop’s Feast Day will be celebrated on Saturday week, 8
August. St Mary of the Cross is Australia’s first Saint and the founder of the Sisters of St
Joseph, who played such an important role in the establishment of our school. On Friday
week (7 August) we will be celebrating this important feast day at school, with a range of
activities planned by our staff. Children are invited to dress representing their future dreams
in the spirit of celebrating Catholic Education week and Mary Mackillop day. On this day all
students will be treated to a free sausage sizzle, courtesy of our P&F, to help us celebrate.
We are also very pleased that Fr Saji, our Parish Priest, will be joining us for these
celebrations.I am most grateful to Angela Moore, our APRE, who is working tirelessly to coordinate these
celebrations. Angela will provide more details in our latest newsletter.
