Parent Access to the College
To ensure the health and safety of all members of the community we have made some temporary changes to procedures. Parent access to the College should be limited and for only those occasions that are absolutely essential.
If you do need to access the College please be mindful of observing the social distancing protocols that remain in place for adults and the following key points:
- All visitors to the College need to use Gate 1 (Administration building/student office) entrance only.
- Parents bringing items that have been left at home e.g. laptop, sports uniform etc. – please leave items in the box provided at the Reception Entry and notify the Receptionist. Parents are asked to write their child’s name clearly on the article so that their daughter can collect it.(pen and sticky labels provided)
- If you need to collect your daughter earlier in the day - could you please phone ahead so we can have your daughter ready to meet you at the front of the school.(supervised until you arrive)

The world is constantly changing. Here are St Mary’s, we can definitely say our little world is changing too. This is a very interesting time in which to live. We are sure that 2020 is not the ideal year we all had planned. However, this makes it all the more memorable for students and teachers here at the College.
Hayes House Report
Hayes House has had an eventful yet enjoyable year so far, although not quite the way we or anyone had anticipated for it to be, ending up in isolation. Hayes House began the year with a killer start, smashing it out at the swimming carnival, with the house taking out 3rd place, and our girls as always trying their hardest, and supporting one another.
Gibbons House Report
Returning from the Term 1 holidays and isolation, Gibbons House members were excited to see their friends face-to-face instead of online. We are all trying to adjust back to a full six period school day after getting used to those amazing half-days.

This Week's Challenge - Find a Word
Moments of Joy.....
The Buzzword of the week is - Friends!
At St Mary's, our students find ‘Moments of Joy’ everyday by spending time with their friends. Whether it be in class, at recess or lunch, even in the corridor. It’s safe to say that our girls love spreading joy, laughter and lots of loud noise and chatter!
