Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
This week will be a very busy week as shorter weeks often are; we try to fit into four days what
we usually do in five.
Our senior class are off on their summer camp down at Camp Columba, just this side of Gore.
At camp the seniors will get to attempt a number of challenging activities in a controlled situation.
As I have stated before the only children who not to grow hugely during the course of this week
are those who fail to attempt the challenges before them, and over the years they
number very few. I will be attending camp with Room Seven, so Mrs Stevens will be the acting
Principal for the week.
As I sit writing this I see all of the children playing happily on the playground; and last week I
thanked all of the people who had helped at our working bee, but someone else who had a huge
hand in getting our playground installed was our former Board Chairperson Donald Mitchell.
Donald put in a huge effort behind the scenes to ensure consent was obtained to install the
playground, he also did a huge amount of work liaising with Alan Grant the installer and he even
drilled the holes for the playground foundations to be installed in, with a little help. So from
everyone at school thank you Donald for your work on this matter.
Hopefully we will all enjoy a week of sunny weather, especially for those on camp.
Have a great week
