Welcome Back for Term 3
I hope everyone had a great holiday which was relaxing and full of quality time with your loved ones. This term will be another busy one for our school with many carnivals and activities on the calendar. All students will be furthering their learning this term and having the opportunity to address any concerns that were raised in their Semester 1 reports. I would encourage all parents to make appointments with their child’s teacher to discuss goals for Semester 2.

Over the last couple of weeks the students from St Mary’s School, Merredin have been involved in many activities to raise awareness and funds for LifeLink. Over the course of several weeks, at our Monday morning short assemblies, our Religious Education Ministry researched and presented information from some of our wonderful Catholic Agencies. The children were also involved in discussing ways we could help those in need in our community and fashioned our LifeLink hearts where they created drawings or prayers to offer to people in need.
St Mary’s School students also raised funds in numerous ways:
• As part of the Design and Technology unit the Year 6 students created their own Arcade Games. These games were on display for a day and all students from all classes got to play these games for a gold coin donation.
• We also organised a school lunch time disco where students were able to dress up and dance the lunch time away for a small donation to LifeLink.
• Finally on our day of LifeLink celebrations we planted our heart prayers and drawings, had a free dress day as well as a sausage sizzle lunch where all proceeds were donated to LifeLink.
It was a wonderful time for our students and our small community, not only to become more aware of the fantastic work that our Catholic Agencies do in our community but also raise nearly $1,000 which is a tremendous effort.
Our efforts have also been published on the LifeLink website. Click here to read the article.
