Swimming Reminder

Dear Year Two Families,

This week the Year Two students are required to bring along an old pair of shorts and a t-shirt to swim in. The students will use them to practise water rescues and survival skills.

Many thanks,

Year Two Teachers

Discovery Learning

The Year Twos love to build, make, create, draw, problem solve, collaborate and so much more during Discovery Learning. There have been so many innovative ideas that have been planned and brought to life. Check them out below!

There are so many creations being made that we need more donations of cardboard boxes, clean plastic containers, such as yogurt tubs, and lids from milk bottles and soft drink bottles. We welcome and greatly appreciate any donations. Thanking you in advance.

Harmony Day Performance Song

Dear Year Two’s,

This week on Thursday the 21st of March is Harmony Day! Our community will be celebrating in the evening from 5.30 on the Soccer Pitch.

Orange is the official colour chosen for Harmony Day, representing how we communicate and remember that ‘everyone belongs’. We are celebrating our similarities as well as differences by coming together with your families to eat, have fun and watch some entertainment.

All Junior students are invited to perform together to sing our song ‘Hello to all the Children of the World’, this is the song we have been practising in Performing Arts.

This clip will help you remember the words and the actions. Have fun!

100% Hope

This week the theme for our Caritas Friday is 100% Hope.

“Land is not a commodity, but rather a gift from God.” – Pope Francis

Each child is encouraged to wear an accessory that connects them to the land and nature such as a splash of green or some flowers. Let’s fill our SMCM community with words of hope.

A reminder to bring a gold coin donation to support Project Compassion.

Thank you for your participation!

Project Compassion

Project Compassion

As supporters of Caritas Australia, SMCM participate in the Project Compassion campaign every year.  During this time, the students of SMCM raise money to support those most in need around the world.

This year the theme of Project Compassion is ‘Give Lent 100%’  For each of the four weeks of the program, the students will focus on a different theme and will be asked to bring a gold coin donation on Fridays to participate in some fun activities.

This Friday the students are asked to Dress up as what you want to be in the future There was much excitement and discussion today when this was revealed to the students.  It looks like we will have lots of teachers, nurses, doctors, builders and ‘bosses’ joining us at school on Friday!  Students will be asked to bring a gold coin donation with them on Friday and all money collected will be donated to Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion.


If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
We thank you for your support in advance!
