The Feast of the Ascension:
Living the Gospel – Proclaim Good News
Francis of Assisi is credited with saying, ‘Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary, use words!’
In every interaction we have we say so much about who we are, what we think of the other person and what we believe – even without opening our mouth.
Our actions and attitudes proclaim our beliefs more powerfully than our words ever do. If we claim to be concerned about justice and yet behave unjustly then it is our actions, not our words, that will be heard!
When we are called to ‘proclaim the Good News’ we are called to do this first and foremost in action.
For the next five weeks in MJR we are looking at our new Mission Statement.
Last week we focused on Compassionate.
Compassionate - Loving one another as Jesus showed us.
In our MJR groups the students engaged in songs, discussions and drama activities to experience what compassionate looks like, feels like and sounds like at St Mary's.

The Midnight Gang
Our Year 3 and Year 4 students travelled to Griffith with Mrs Nielsen and Mrs Tulloch on Friday the 14th of May.
The students had a wonderful day out, there was singing on the bus, fun in the park and a great theatre performance enjoyed by all.
Max Cuthbertson in Year 4 has contributed an amazing story about the excursion:
The Exciting Excursion
By Max Cuthbertson
Lights! Camera! Action!
Before I knew it, I was in the theatre. The loud chatter suddenly stopped and the stage lights came on. I am so ready!!!
The break to the park before the show was amazing! Flying foxes, spider webs, slides…. Oh I could go on forever! It was impossible to do everything at City Park. I feel amazed, shocked and surprised that the teachers gave us the opportunity to go there.
The Midnight Gang performance was amazing! The performers change characters in 30 seconds, unbelievable! All the children in the play had their dreams come true. I shook with excitement not knowing what’s coming next.
Quick! Hop on the bus!
The singing on the bus on the way home is louder than a packed stadium. My eardrums were about to POP! I saw the school in the distance and we approached England Street. A great day comes to an end.
Mrs Nielsen took some lovely picture of the students on the excursion that you can see below.

Anxiety has become one of the leading causes of ill-health in our children and it’s also affecting more parents than ever before. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated what was already an accelerating problem.
Can we stop anxiety? Where is it coming from? Are our kids' bubble-wrapped snowflakes that just need to toughen up and get over it? Or is there an approach to our children’s anxiety that can build them, encourage them, and give them hope?
This webinar will provide the answers every parent needs to help their children – and even to help themselves.
Over the course of an hour, Dr Justin Coulson will help you to:
- Recognise anxiety in your child
- Know how best to respond when anxiety flares up
- Become a supportive hope-giver to your child to empower him/her to be courageous in the face of anxious thoughts
- Uncover the research-based #1 strength your child can develop to combat anxiety and develop remarkable resilience.
- Identify how your own anxieties could be affecting your child, and know how to manage them
- Learn proven strategies to help both you and your child navigate and manage anxiety when things get stressful
Once you’ve participated in this webinar, you’ll have strategies that you can put into practice on the spot to help curb anxiety, build confidence, and restore resilience in your child. And if you struggle with anxiety yourself, you’ll be changed.
We hope you will join us on Monday 17 May, 8pm AEST.
