Wednesday, 30 August 2017 Term 3, Week 6 Dear families We celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Bishop Eugene Hurleys installation as Bishop in Darwin this week. St Marys school community will commemorate this significant occasion with Bishop Eugene at our Fathers Day Liturgy on Friday night. We hope to see all our families joining us for this special occasion where we celebrate the significant men in our lives including grandfathers, fathers, uncles and brothers. Our liturgy, prepared by Year 3/4 classes will be followed by our family Movie Monster Trucks under the stars. Pre-sold tickets are available online at event brite. Prayer for Fathers God is the giver of all life, human and divine. May He bless all the fathers of our parishes. We pray that children will see their fathers as models of the Christian life. May each father see as his role, together with his wife, as being not only the first teachers of their children, but also the very best of teachers, bearing witness to the faith by what they say and do. May fathers win the respect and affection of their children, by the caring love, wise direction and Christ-like example they lavish upon their children. In return, may children look trustingly to their fathers with respect and love. We ask this Blessing on all fathers today, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Book Week: Celebrations held last Friday were fantastic with over 90% of students and staff dressing as their favourite book characters. Characters including Mr Twit, Mad Hatter, Madeline, Wheres Wally, Hairy McCleary and Mrs Frizzle were welcome guests at our assembly and were a great example of the imagination and creative talents of staff and families. Special thanks to Miss Pollock who did an absolutely amazing job running the assembly along with our student leadership team. Another highlight of Book week was a visit from our special guest reader-Bishop Eugene Hurley-who read a story to the whole school on Thursday morning. Year 4 Camp: Year 4 students and teachers are very excited about their upcoming camp next week to the Berry Springs Wildlife Park. Children will participate in a variety of outdoor educational activities including tent set up, animal education and team building. We look forward to hearing about their adventures on their return. Tournament of Minds Competition: On Saturday we have two teams from St Marys competing in the TOMs com petition at Charles Darwin University. We wish them all the very best in their challenges and thank Mrs Pearce, Miss Morgan and Miss Tagan who have given generously of their time to assist the teams with their rehearsals and preparations.
