Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
This week we have been blessed with a number of our pupils achieving excellent results in a range of activities:
Devon Scott has been selected in the Dunedin Metropolitan Gold Cricket Team. They played Southland on Sunday and he scored 17 not out.
Gracin Fraser and Sam O’Neill where re-selected in to Metropolitan teams for the third year. Congratulations to all these boys.
Pyper Johnson has been selected to represent Otago in athletics in the national
Aarnika Bungard donated her hair to the cancer society to be made into wigs.
This is an act of selfless service to people in a challenging and vulnerable time of their lives. Acts of giving like this is the Christian message that we should all aspire to live by.
Thank you Aarnika.
Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Lent, like Advent is a time of prayer-ful reflection and a time to refocus. In this hyper busy world that we live in the challenge is often to allow ourselves ‘time out’ to refocus on what really is important.
Sometime it is a case of "the less haste, the more speed".
Have a great week.
