During a challenging time, where our ability to hold fundraising events was limited, we are super proud to be contributing $1,159.28 to support the world’s most vulnerable. Our College conducted a number of events such as PD Day, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Day, Harmony Day and St Patrick’s Day, in addition to making small donations to the Project Compassion donation boxes distributed across the College.
Well done St Mary's College!
rice house morning tea
Rice House secondary students enjoyed a 'take away' morning tea on Tuesday 5 May to celebrate the feast day of their patron, Blessed Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers.
The Rice House crest was designed by student Abbey Ford. The celtic cross is taken from the original Christian Brother emblem and is central to our daily lives and shows our respect for students from all directions. The vine is taken from the Oceania Edmund Rice logo which represents new life coming from the cross which gives us inspiration. The book symbolises the bible and knowledge and guides our commitment to do good works. The bright star is for guidance. The sea eagle which is our mascot signifies the Broome region, our strength, and the ability to soar to great heights. The flame represents the Holy Spirit and gives encouragement to shine.
Thank you Miss Amy & Rice House Students!
week 2 on primary...
Week Two is almost done, and what a fabulous start to the term it has been! The students settled in so well and adapted to the remote learning routine with enthusiasm. Seeing their smiling faces as they chatter excitedly with each other has been a beautiful sight. Those working from both school and home have been so well supported by their amazing teachers who have provided them with engaging activities. We thank all of our parents for their support.
...in year 2
Goodness me its been busy in Year 2 this week! We have been so amazing, Miss Shannon and Miss Melis were so impressed with how we have been KIND, RESPECTFUL and RESPONSIBLE this term! We are so happy to have most of us back at school and have been using See Saw in our lessons to connect with some of our friends at home and have been completing our activities to the best of our ability.
and.... on secondary the focus was on relationships
Relationships, Relationships, Relationships
This week the secondary campus reintroduced Wednesdays extended Homeroom to our timetable. The objective of this Homeroom was to build and re-establishing relationships between students in Homeroom and their Homeroom teacher. Ms Amy created a wonderful lesson that started with acknowledging the good in each of our lives. Students shared stories about their time away from school and took part in many team building activities including the birthday line up and secret identity. This was followed up with team Kahoots and motivational videos. There was a happy, friendly atmosphere in every Homeroom. Thank you to the Heads of House and Homeroom teachers who ran activities.
all things academic on secondary !
Mrs Lea Wilson - Deputy of Curriculum
We received our OLNA results on Monday for all students in Years 10, 11 and 12 who were required to sit OLNA. Year 10s have already received paper copies of their results and Years 11 and 12 students will receive theirs today. Overall our results were very encouraging with a large number of students completing the requirement for WACE graduation in this round of testing.
Despite COVID-19 and students having a somewhat disrupted learning environment, we feel we are in a comfortable position to run Semester 1 Exams for all Year 11 and 12 ATAR students and all Year 9 and 10 students.
The Year 11 and 12 Exams will run from Monday, May 25 through to Thursday, June 4. This is an extremely important opportunity for our students to practice the required skills for their final WACE exams at the end of Year 12. The Year 11 and 12 Exam timetable is listed below.
Year 10 Subject Selections
Towards the end of this term, all Year 10 students will be required to choose subjects for Year 11. Information about this process will be given to parents of Year 10s over the coming weeks. It would be wonderful if parents could start to discuss with their child what their aspirations are for the future. During Careers classes, students will be looking at this and individual career counselling and help with subject selection will be offered to all Year 10 students and parents.
