$20 Boss wrap-up

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

On the Thursday the 20 of June, the Year 9 Business Studies class ran six different businesses in small groups as part of the $20 Boss Program. We sold hot chips, pancakes, cake, sausages, a zorb ball experience and smoothies. These businesses raised money towards Rare Cancers Australia, making a total of $573.45 between them to go towards the research into rare cancers. The $20 Boss Program aims to teach school students about business ownership and what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. It gives them the experience of owning their own business and encourages them to be forward thinking and problem solving. The Year 9 Business Studies class would like to thank St Mary’s College and everyone who supported our businesses for the opportunity to be a part of this program and all of the interesting things that we learnt from it.

Spotlight on Sport – Netball

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

Term 2 rosters are now well and truly underway with a range of sports taking place virtually every afternoon of the week.

This year we have 16 teams participating in five different sports and it’s great to see all the girls having a go regardless of their ability or prior experience. At St Mary’s we encourage all of our students to try something new, whether this is a sport, cultural or other co-curricular activity, why not give it a try?!

This newsletter’s Spotlight On Sport is all about Senior School netball.

St Mary’s has a long and rich history in netball and the 11 teams we have across all the Southern SATIS grades this year is proof of that. It is great to see so many girls having fun with their friends and win or lose, St Mary’s is proud of your commitment. Of course, none of this would be possible without our wonderful parents and we would like to thank you for all your support and assistance in transporting, scoring and coaching. Not to mention our Year 11 and 12 students who are helping out with coaching or umpiring as well! It is great to have you involved and the girls appreciate the time and effort you put in.

Best of luck to all the teams for the rest of the season ahead. We hope you enjoy the experience and continue to be involved in all the wonderful opportunities we have to offer at St Mary’s.
