Welcome to Term Four, 2017

Welcome to Term 4 at the College. Laja season has begun with warm days and high humidity til December when Man-gala (the wet season) starts.

This term we invite our 2018 Kindergarten and Year 7 students and families to a number of Open Days and information sessions. On Monday the 30th October our 2018 Kindergarten and ‘Our Mob’ students visit the Primary campus, with a 2018 Kindy Parent information session held on Wednesday 8th November at 5:30 pm.

Our Year 6 students begin transition classes in Week 4 prior to the commencement of Year 7 in 2018. Year 6 students have been regularly visiting the Senior campus this year, utilising the Secondary Science Labs for their Science classes in readiness for their transition to high school. Our Year 7 Orientation Day will be held on Thursday the 23rd November. All Year 6 students in Broome are welcome to attend.

We look forward to celebrating and showcasing our student’s achievements in 2017 at the Presentation Evening which will be held on Friday the 20th of October. The term concludes for students on Friday the 8th of December.

I encourage all students at College to strive for excellence and enjoy their learning for the remainder of the 2017.

Caritas Australia’s is the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development. It strives to* End Poverty, *Promote Justice and *Uphold Dignity.

We are grateful that the St Mary's College Community have always generously embraced the annual Lenten fundraising and awareness- raising appeal, Project Compassion, which brings together thousands of Australians in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity

We are so proud of our students who embrace this project with their listening hearts and who are inspired to "be more" for the sake of poor people in our world.

In the words of Pope Francis "Cultivate with love the seeds of goodness, beauty and truth that God sows in every new generation"
