Year 6 Graduationhttp://www.stmaryofthecross.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Year-6-Graduation.aspxYear 6 Graduation<p>​It is a particularly special time for our Year 6 students and their families who will be completing their primary schooling at St Mary of the Cross. Yesterday we celebrated with Zac, Talarah, Shelliah and Kim with our Graduation Mass, presentations, cake and a special excursion to the movies. Thank you to the families and our friends for joining us to mark the occasion. It was an opportunity for our Year 6 students to reflect on their journey so far, cement friendships and look to the future, knowing they are never alone but always in God’s loving care. As Fr Peter spoke about during the Homily we each have a light to shine. Not to be hidden away in a box but to be shared so that everyone can see. We congratulate our Year 6 leaders and wish them well for the next part of their journey into high school.<br></p><p>​<img src="/news-and-events/SiteAssets/Pages/Year-6-Graduation/graduation2018c.jpg" alt="graduation2018c.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:638px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/news-and-events/SiteAssets/Pages/Year-6-Graduation/graduation2018b.jpg" alt="graduation2018b.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:638px;" /><br><br></p>
End of Year Arts Showcasehttp://www.stmaryofthecross.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/End-of-Year-Arts-Showcase.aspxEnd of Year Arts Showcase<p>​A sincere thank you to all members of the community that we able to attend the showcase of our Arts at the Christmas Concert. To see the pride of the students as they showed their family the completed art works and sculptures, the premieres of the integrated technology videos or their performance of the instrumental music or singing made all the persistence and hard work worth it. Thank you again to the talented and dedicated Mrs Lauren Veling who made all of this happen with the very capable and enthusiastic Miss Tickner. <br><br></p><p>​<img src="/news-and-events/SiteAssets/Pages/End-of-Year-Arts-Showcase/artshowcase2018a.jpg" alt="artshowcase2018a.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br><br></p>
