Library Newshttp://www.stmaryofthecross.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Library-News.aspxLibrary News<p style="text-align:justify;">​Readers Cup - Readers Cup is a competition run by the Children’s Book Council of Australia (Queensland Branch). Last Wednesday 6th June, five of our students travelled to Hilder Rd State School to participate: James, Halle, Eli, Savannah and Eric. We were so very proud of the way these students enthusiastically approached the competition. Although the results were not in our favour, we enjoyed the opportunity to compete with other schools. Another highlight was meeting Nick Earls – one of our favourite authors! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Poetry Competition - The regional poetry competition is run by Noel Stallard (Bush Poet), who recited poetry at our school two years ago as part of our Book Week celebrations. The students involved in this completion were James and Zac. James recited There’s something growing in my cup by Helen Ross, while Zac received personal tuition by one of the Bush Poets as he recited 100 years from now by Rupert McCall. James scored 84 points out of a possible 100. Congratulations! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">                    <img alt="library.fw.png" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/library.fw.png" style="margin:5px;" /></p>
Prep Enrolmentshttp://www.stmaryofthecross.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Prep-Enrolments.aspxPrep Enrolments<p style="text-align:justify;">We are now taking applications for enrolments from all our school families and the wider community for Prep 2019. A child born from 1st July 2013 to 30th June, 2014 will be eligible for the Prep 2019. Preference for enrolment will be given to siblings of children already attending St Mary of the Cross school provided that enrolment procedures are completed.​</p><p><a href="/Enrolments/Pages/default.aspx">Click here for more information.....</a>​<br></p>
The Artshttp://www.stmaryofthecross.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/The-Arts.aspxThe Arts<p style="text-align:justify;">The whole school performance today is the culmination of a lot of hard work led by the wonderful Mrs Veling. One of the wonderful things about St Mary of the Cross is that all children have an opportunity to perform. The story is about persistence and resilience which is integral to children achieving success in the future. Those social and emotional skills are developed through working through nerves and working "hard". These skills are developed in the classroom, through sport and performing in front of an audience. Thank you to Lauren and our wonderful staff for giving our students an opportunity to shine through the arts. Thank you for the parents and friends who were able to attend on the day. </p><p>                                          <img alt="CowTrippedOver.jpg" src="/news-and-events/SiteAssets/Pages/The-Arts/CowTrippedOver.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:335px;" />​</p>
