Latest News from St Mary’s Boyup Brook
Week 3 - Friday May 12th
I have just returned from a few days away with our Year 6 class as they enjoyed their camp at Point Walter Reserve in Perth.
What a fantastic time they have had as you will see from the videos below. It is a wide-ranging educational camp and the students love it. They’ve ice skated, played 3D mini golf, visited historical sites including WA Museum Boola Bordip, Parliament House and the Perth Mint and they’ve had a wonderful day trip to Rottnest Island. I would like to thank Mr Tweedie and Mrs Marsh for taking the children on camp and giving them such a wonderful time. The kids will be tired on their return.
Teaching and Learning Update
The year five class joined up with the year 3/4 class this week and got on with the work they had left to them. They were also acting up as student leaders and did a great job. Our focus in writing across the school so far this term is Narrative (story) writing. In Numeracy our staff are still working to develop our students’ skills in inquiry maths. This has been ongoing for the past few years and will continue to be a focus across the school.
Work Completed During the Holidays
Over the school holidays we had heaps of work done around the school. WE had 50 cubic metres of playground mulch spread around the playground to ensure we have correct softfall areas around the playground. We painted the large fort and added a cargo net ladder and a slide for the kids to enjoy. We also had a small shed constructed for storage of loose parts play items (watch this space). The old water pump has been replaced with a new one, a tap has been connected to water mains in the early childhood playground and stairs added to the cubby house. The kids are loving all of the improvements.
Nothing from 31 May to 14 June.
Growing Through Christ
It is a pleasure to welcome you to St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School. St Mary’s is a dynamic, nurturing and vibrant learning co-educational Primary School catering for 72 students from K-6.
The school was founded in 1957 and staffed by the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary until 1990. The School motto ‘Growing Through Christ’ describes the endeavour to lead students through an integration of faith, life and learning.
St Mary’s Catholic School is highly regarded within Boyup Brook and the surrounding district due to dedicated staff, a supportive Parish and an extremely supportive, active parent community. Together, all this helps to create a vibrant, family centred school, which focuses on a commitment to excellence.
