SAINT MARY OF THE CROSS MACKILLOP

 

Mary had a fundamental belief that the cross becomes the Tree of Life. Mary faced many challenges from both within and beyond the church as she set about doing God’s will. She trusted that through all these circumstances God’s love would suffice. She was known as Sr Mary of the Cross.

She is Australia’s first saint, a model of how to live as a follower of Jesus and she continues to pray for us in love. One of her greatest strengths was her    belief in the power of the cross to change her heart and to change the world. May St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, help us to be the face of God for others as she continues to be us.

Mary MacKillop is a great saint a Great Woman of Australia.

We at St Michael’s have much to learn from her vision, courage and           compassion for children of Australia.

At St Michael’s we will constantly live out our character constantly to share the Gospel message of “Love One     Another”.

At St Michael’s we will follow Mary’s vision in believing that, “all children can and will grow and succeed”.

Over the next two weeks we will be hosting visitors from Brisbane and North Queensland. This week two school communities will be with us on Thursday. The visiting educators will be spending time in       understanding our work around:

 

· Designing and building our learning spaces

· Creating ‘Shared Beliefs’ in learning and teaching

· Implementation Plans

· Establishing ‘Learning frameworks’

· Working with student data

 

But the real reason for their visit is our teachers and our students.

 

Our visitors will want to spend time learning how teachers:

· Collaboratively plan

· Create Data Walls

· Establish and work with Lesson Intents and Success Criteria

· Are continuing to experiment with Co-teaching models and use of space

 

Our visiting team include diversity and library specialist. I sincerely thank my colleagues for supporting the growth of colleague professionals.
