In their meeting today, the Social Justice Group, a co-curricular group for students in Years 10-12, wrote letters to their Federal Members of Parliament, calling for action on the issue of the offshore processing of asylum seekers.
Reading books, for many children, is sadly declining. At Santa Maria, we are trying to turn that around. Recently, as part of Book Week, parents and students were invited to a special reading night in the Sawle Centre, where parents brought along their favourite childhood books to share with their daughter.
Recently 40 girls in Years 7 and 8 completed the Balance Program. This program presents information on a number of different topics around wellbeing. It was lovely to see the students engage in each of the sessions to discuss and explore the topics presented. The girls enjoyed mixing with students in other Year groups and building relationships with each other.
