Dear SJMS Community

It is hard to believe the end of the school year is just around the corner. In the last newsletter I alluded to the fact that this would be an action packed term. This past week has lived up to the billing!

Sports Day 2020

30.10.20

Dear SJMS Community

I think I speak for staff and students alike in saying that we are all still recovering from our mammoth efforts on Friday at our 2020 SJMS Sports Day.

We were extremely fortunate with the weather which in the end provided perfect conditions for our students to give it their all.

It was fantastic to see so many families in attendance to support our students who represented their teams with great passion and sportsmanship. It was great to have the whole school community together, including our Preschoolers, who may have even upstaged our parents and old scholars with their tug-of-war efforts.

I must once again congratulate Woods for taking out the John Partington Memorial Shield and Tappeiner for winning the Spirit Cup. Well done also to MacKillop and Joseph for their gallant efforts during the day.

A massive thank you goes out to all of the staff and parent volunteers, Mrs Moore for managing the scoring, Mrs Fantasia for coordinating the sign in and First Aid station, Daniel Faraonio for supplying the PA system and Norwood Oval for providing the perfect venue for us. Let the countdown begin to Sports Day 2021!

Yours sincerely

Tom Siinmaa

It was a pleasure last Sunday to see the first group of students celebrate the Sacrament of the First Eucharist. Father Paul, Father Stan and Father Alan ministered the sacrament in what was a lovely afternoon.

Every year on the first Sunday of September we celebrate Father’s Day. It is a day when we spoil and spend time with dad or a significant person, as a way of saying “thank you for all of the things you do for me”.

Dear SJMS Community

On Sunday we celebrated Pentecost. In the Gospel, Jesus appeared and breathed the Holy Spirit into his friends. These days, coming to faith is a journey where we discover God’s existence within the realities of our life experiences. This can happen through prayer and reflection. Regular time to pray and reflect is a wonderful practice that can aid with our spiritual growth and enable us to identify our unique gifts and see grace in what the world offers us.

Dear SJMS Community

It is wonderful see the school making its way back to a new normal.

Over the past week, our Preschool students were presented with a Preschool polo shirt (pictured above). As I presented these shirts, most wanted the Preschool educators to put their shirt straight on. It was a delight to see the precious looks on their faces. These polo shirts are a gift for the children to enhance their sense of belonging and a celebration that they are competent and capable Preschool students.
