Special Character Message

Our school Value this year is Respect.

So, God created humankind in His image; in the image of God he created them.” (Genesis 1:27).
RESPECT – We are reminded that we should think of others first, affirming and upholding the humanity and dignity of all.

We had a lovely display of this within one of our homerooms at the beginning of the term where they made Recipes for Respect.  Click this link to find out more Our school value this year is RESPECT | Sancta Maria College

Our Years 7-9 have thoroughly enjoyed their retreats over the last three weeks.  The retreats were run by NET Ministries assisted by some year 13 students.  The participants were really thrilled and engaged in all of the activities.  They were led to understand the love of God and that challenges that we are facing as followers of Christ.  They were made to understand that things will be good with the help of the community and the love of Jesus.  Special thanks to all those who helped in the retreats.
