This Friday the school community will gather together to celebrate the feast of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop. This great woman swept across this land, inspired with the love of God and determined to bring this love to the many needs of Australia in the 19th Century. The rural children became her particular focus as she brought education to many of them. Her humanness, her determination and her certainty that God was with her also made her aware of the many other needs that called. Hence the famous saying "Never see a need without doing something about it" became her guiding principle. So many people recognise the spirit of this great woman and want to continue her work today.
