experiencing secondary life at St Mary’s.
original date for this exciting event was postponed due to the COVID-19
restrictions but St Mary's College is now pleased to be able to once again
offer this experience to interested students. Much planning has been completed
to ensure the highest safety procedures will be maintained to keep our children
and the whole community safe.
morning our Year 6 guests will experience a taste of the College Pastoral care
activities that are a valued morning occurrence for all our students.
To get to
know the College a Scavenger Hunt is planned. Students are able to delightfully
explore around the College to find everything that makes up the wonderful St
Mary’s campus. Included in this hunt is sure to be, familiar names such as our
Student Receptionist, Mrs Wheeler, the location of our CITADEL, Pastoral
Leaders and the Middle Years classrooms and most importantly, the famous St
Mary’s Tuckshop the Nosh Pit.
this year will be self-supplied by each guest student (due to Covid-19) and
entertainment will be provided by the St Mary's student body - performances
from our College Dance Crew and games co-ordinated by our senior students.
afternoon all students get to ‘discover’ a variety of different secondary
classes to truly experience the life of a Year Seven student they will
participate in rotational games with our Middle schooling teachers. After a
quick ice block break and Q&A opportunity. Our student guests will finish
the afternoon with games with Mr McGahan and our Year 11 Certificate II Sport
and Recreation students
teachers are looking forward to a fantastic day meeting so many new smiling
faces at the College.
previous years many students have told staff how much they enjoyed the day,
with one boy last year even announcing, “This is definitely my High School!”
What wonderful feedback! Thank you for considering St Mary's College we invite
you to book your child in to this exciting event and let them discover why they
