We’re on the road again. After a rocky few starts and detours, it seems that St Mary’s is back in action. To celebrate our College and its dynamic life, take on a new adventure and join a club today! That’s right, clubs are back in Term 4 with new and exciting experiences. Make new friends and get involved in a cause that you’re passionate about. For example, Interact Club is holding a collection drive for a range of toiletry items for stranded international UOW students. So, don’t forget to donate in your Tutor Groups for this vital cause. Make sure to check notices to see what’s on and get involved!
There are times when it is clear that St Mary’s girls are becoming more independent young adults and it’s a little nostalgic to see everyone growing up. Year 12 girls are sitting the HSC until 6 November - so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers through this stressful time. For our Year 10 girls, the new senior uniform is a reminder of the new chapter in their education. Moreover, the new Term has given an opportunity for the incoming Year 12 girls to step up into leadership roles. These new beginnings remind the community of the exciting things ahead. Let’s make Term 4 a great end to 2020. We’ve got this!

Theatresports goes online
Yes, the most vigorous and rigorous of live performance competitions – Inter-School Theatresports! Where our Year 8 team will walk a creative trapeze, without the safety net of a script, over a crocodile-filled pool of spontaneous improvisation ideas, with an audience howling not for blood but with hilarity or empathy for the wonders being served up in front of them. Yes, a live audience but performers all-round the State entertaining each other online!

Have you checked your Pulse?
The hub now features a ‘New & Recent Additions’ page highlighting just that! It aims to highlight to parents updates and new resources. This week the #youthgotthis Forum has been added. Presented by the University of Sydney’s Matilda Centre and facilitated by Jessica Rowe AM, this forum brought together young people, parents, educators, health workers and researchers to facilitate discussion around Youth Mental Health. It shares a wealth of information in a relatable presentation that is easy to listen to with plenty of easy 'takeaways' and insights. I highly recommend having a listen, I guarantee it will make folding the laundry, making dinner or going for a walk a whole lot more worthwhile.
