A special day to honour our mothers and grandmothers

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Featured News, News, Timeline

On Wednesday 9 May we celebrated the love, compassion and dedication of our wonderful mums.

From 7.30am that morning, our leading ladies were treated to a breakfast feast provided by our generous and hard-working SMC dads. Thank you to the P&F Association for organising such a wonderful event for our school community.

Our Kindergarten boys and girls also had the opportunity to shower their mums with love and affection on May 9, as they hosted a special afternoon tea in their classrooms, complete with yummy food and lots of singing.

Thank you to all our mums, grandmothers and female mentors for all that you do in making our world so wonderful and bright.

Getting tech savvy… 

Year 4 Bluegums put an innovative spin on their Mother’s Day gifts this year.

Lindy Lack’s class created pictures representing their mothers using the Word Cloud app.

The girls wrote words that described their mothers, chose colours and fonts, as well as the arrangement of words, before adding a border and framed them. Impressive! 

 

Pop! Fizz! Bang!

Meanwhile, the Majella Kelly Science Centre was buzzing with energy and excitement on May 9 as Karen Walter’s Year 7 Science class experimented with making bath bombs, which were gifted to their mums for Mother’s Day. 

Students enjoyed the chance to get their hands ‘dirty’, as they worked with a concoction of baking soda, citric acid, water, oil food colouring and Epsom salts to produce their colourful and sweet-smelling creations. 

 

Satisfaction Survey – we want to hear from you!

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in News, Timeline

As part of always striving to go ‘One Pace Beyond’ as a College community, it is important that we are never satisfied with the status quo. From time to time, we seek to survey parents, students and staff in order to celebrate the things we do well as a College and to identify areas for further improvement.

Each member of the St Mary’s College community is requested to complete a satisfaction survey, which will remain open until Tuesday 22 May 2018. The link the parent survey appears below. 

https://www.research.net/r/stmarysparent2018

There are three surveys: A Student Satisfaction Survey, a Staff Climate Survey and a Parent Opinion Survey. Each group has been emailed a unique link to the appropriate survey. The surveys are completely anonymous and will be externally collated and analysed by an independent company so that the College can benefit from this valuable feedback. The surveys are in a concise multiple-choice format and should take a maximum of 10 minutes to complete.

Thank you in anticipation for taking the time to provide feedback on the College. It is very much appreciated!
