Staff Professional Learning Day and Pupil Free Day

A reminder that all St Mary's staff will be joining other Western Region schools in Cootamundra next Friday 18th May for a development day focusing on teaching mathematics. Leonie Anstey has led the St Mary's staff in mathematics professional learning previously and we have all gained tremendous understanding of current teaching methods for maths. We are certainly looking forward to continuing this development and implementing these in our classes.

As a result of the day, this is a Pupil Free Day for all students at St Mary's.

Our annual Book Fair will be held next week in our school library.  Ashton Scholastic will be offering books catering to all ages and interests.  â€‹This as an opportunity to promote reading for pleasure and foster literacy through developing a love of books.  St Mary's will receive a generous commission from Ashton Scholastic and this will be used to purchase new resources for our library.  Children may attend the Book Fair with their parents or they can visit during class time to make their purchases. 

The Book Fair will be held on the Thursday, 10th May  and Friday, 11th May from 9:00am  - 3:00pm
