Welcome back girls! So happy to see all your beautiful faces back in school as we are finally back together as one. We are sure you are all missing your beds and the kitchen being less than 10 metres from your rooms. Many things have happened through the past few weeks and most of us are coming back to a wave of assessment tasks. With all the workload to get through we understand that it can be very stressful.
George Floyd was a 46 year old man and until last week there was nothing particularly extraordinary about him. He played basketball and football, he worked two jobs. He was also a father. He was a ‘gentle giant’.
Kelly House Report
It has been a weird, wacky and yet wonderful year for many of the girls at our school. The return to the College has led to lots of excitement in the hallways, with girls smiling and hugging each other. As captain, it was a relief to see the Kelly spirit alive again.
Lyons House Report
Things are starting to look somewhat more normal back at the College. It has been so nice seeing all the lovely Lyons girls coming back after being in isolation. The halls are filling up and bumping into people is a refreshing sense of normality. However, I think it is safe to say that we are all trying to adjust back to school life rather than the comforts of waking up later at home. I know I am.
Year 9 Student Leaders - Presentation of Badges
Last Friday, 29 May, the Year 9 Student Leaders were presented with their badges in a ceremony held in the Peace Garden outside the Chapel. The students enjoyed a morning tea and conversation with Mr Fitzgerald and Ms Magill. The presentation usually occurs during a College Assembly however, due to social distancing restrictions, a small ceremony was held instead. We congratulate the girls on this special achievement and wish them all the best in their Leadership roles.

We understand that at times it can get congested during drop off and pick up times at the College however, we ask that you be mindful of not blocking driveways or double parking as we have received complaints from residents of Market Square. Thank you for your understanding.

The preferred method to recharge is to top up the card utilising the canteen/print recharge option within the St Mary's Student or Parent Portals. Please follow the link to the Portals.
