Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Welcome back to everyone for term four, and what a busy term this will be as we move through advent and into the Christmas season.
Major events coming up are: the school fair, the Room 7 camp, the Year Six camp, the South Taieri Schools Athletics, senior swimming lessons, and our end of year performance and of course our end of year Mass and prize giving.
Obviously on top of this we have a full term of teaching and learning.
As a parent of busy children myself I know that what goes on at school is only a portion of what happens in life and saying no to doing or taking part in something is not always easy in fact its usually very hard.
But it is a good thing where possible to prioritize. Choose what you have to do and what you want to do and what you can do without.
As much as Christmas is often called the season of "good will to all", over the past few years I have noticed that the pressure that comes on at this time of the year makes it loose its true meaning. So I hope that everyone has a pleasant and enjoyable Term Four.
Have a great week.
