St Mary of the Cross (MacKillop)

On Tuesday, we celebrated the Solemnity of St Mary of the Cross (MacKillop) with a mass.  The children sang and read beautifully.  Thank you to their teachers for preparing them so well to participate in the mass.  The mass made clear Mary’s generous and caring nature.  We reflected on how Mary is an example for all students to follow.  I would like to mention the efforts of the Year 5 students particularly, who helped lead the reading for the first time and to the Year 1s whose enthusiasm with the singing and actions was infectious.

The assembly, led by 4B, continued the celebration of the life of St Mary MacKillop.  Parts of her life were role played by the students, with a very convincing Mary.  The digital presentation and songs added greatly to the message of Mary’s life and example.
