St Mary’s College Junior School was honoured to be invited to prepare the Christmas decorations for this year’s Henry Jones Art Hotel Christmas Tree. As part of their Christmas program, Henry Jones Art Hotel gifted St Mary’s College with $1,000 to donate to the charities of their choice. The students selected the Catholic Care Family Assistance Christmas hampers initiative and the Sacred Heart Catholic School Geeveston fundraiser for bushfire affected families in Queensland and NSW.

The St Mary’s College Year 3-4 and Year 6 Basketball teams put in a wonderful effort at the State Basketball Competition.

Although the Year 3-4 team didn’t win a game, they continued to improve and kept smiling the entire time.



Our Year 6 team should be very proud of their commitment to the game. They played beautifully and really connected as a team.

The girls managed to make it to the final where they were beaten by Our Lady of Lourdes team by 25 points. Basketball skills aside, staff were really impressed by their leadership. They made the time to wish the Year 3-4 team luck and cheered them on during their games.

Congratulations to both teams on a fantastic season.

Kate Jordan
Junior School HPE Teacher
