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.

We were so fortunate to have Australian Diamonds netballer and Commonwealth silver medallist, Madi Robinson visit St Mary’s College on Thursday 10 May.

Madi, who is captain of the Collingwood Magpies – one of the teams that play in the Suncorp Super Netball season, spoke to our senior girls about leadership, resilience, her journey to the Commonwealth Games and how a healthy body and mind is paramount to success. 

Thanks for your time, Madi, and to the crew at Netball Tasmania who organised the session.

Students tackle cross country challenge

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Sport/Activity Featured, Sport/Activity News, Timeline

Well done to all those students who participated in the Year 3-12 Cross Country Carnival on Monday 14 May.

This year’s carnival was held under clear skies at Soldier’s Memorial Oval, Queens Domain, with students embracing the brisk autumn air.

It was fantastic to see students ramping up the positive energy on the day, as they cheered on and encouraged their peers from the sidelines.

Thank you to all organisers, parents and officials for helping make the day such a great success. Full results will be released soon, so watch this space!
