MJR focus for the week


The W.E.S.T way is a great way to act, it’s unselfish, thoughtful and giving. To Welcome, Encourage, say Sorry and Thanks is certainly a great way of living.

Out of School Hours Care News

Term 2 is well underway and the OSHC has some exciting events coming up to look forward to. The 7th of June is our Pupil Free Day, and we are lucky enough to have a day filled with laser tag and baking! The 8th of June is then a Half Day at Star of the Sea and the OSHC will be open from 12pm – 6pm. This half day is make your own pizza and a movie day! If you would like to book in for one of these days, please do so via the Xplor app. Places are limited so get booking quick!


The Vacation Care Planner is soon to be released so keep an eye out for this on the website and via the Xplor app to see what fun we have planned for July. We have based the planner on the children’s current interests, and it is jam packed with fun and adventures. If you, or your child/ren, have any ideas for our October Vacation Care, we would love to hear from you. Please email us on –


We would like to remind families that when their child/ren is/are absent from school, and therefore OSHC, that where possible, this is marked on the app. It is crucial that we are aware of absences in order to account for all children and staff for the shifts. If you would like help on how to do this via the Xplor app, please let a member of the team know.

Early Learning Centre Care News

We are pleased to inform you that the ELC partnership with Rockingham ReED is back on again! After a very successful year last year, ELC will continue to collaborate with the City of Rockingham in giving our children and their families an opportunity to experience the beauty of story books without having the whole library in your house! All our children will be given a red file with a book that they can share at home with you. You are then welcome to swap the book when you finish.

Through our policies and procedures, we are able to streamline our daily operations to ensure that we meet the needs of our families, staff and government. As a result, all our families will be receiving a policy for review and feedback before we implement through the Xplor app.


Hello! Fr. Pier here.

I pray you are well.

Every year we have parents of our Catholic schools students who choose to revive or explore their Catholic journey.

In the past we offered the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), which helps to understand the contents of our faith.

Something was missing: a space where people could deepen their personal relationship with Jesus and our community.

This space is essential: with a living relationship with Jesus, the Catholic journey is a joy. Without it, it is a chore.

People will gauge with their leaders when they are ready to move towards RCIA, which is more like headspace.

This year we started from this space of experience, which we called Gateway.

We have just started.

If you wish to deepen your journey or start it altogether, you are welcome – come with your personal story.

  • What: Gateway. We share a meal, some insight, our experiences, and prayer.
  • When: on Tuesdays at 6.30 pm
  • Where: the presbytery, on the left of the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes.
  • Contact: For catering purposes, it would be great if you let us know.

I hope to see you there!
