Students Represent St Mary's to Celebrate 200 Years of Catholic Education



Year 6 Term Leaders Cooper Scheiwe, Indiana Shepley and Oscar Crack proudly represented the St Mary's Laidley community at a special mass at St Mary's Church​ in Ipswich to celebrate 200 years of Catholic education in Australia.

When asked to reflect on the experience, this is what they had to say: "Being part of the 200 Years of Catholic Education Celebration was a highlight for all three of us."

“It signified the role students like us have had in the history of Catholic Education, and the impact teachers and staff have had on us. They have helped to shape us into who we are, in the past, present and looking forward into the future.

“We feel privileged to be part of such a significant event and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful liturgy and opportunity to learn more about the history and importance of Catholic Education in Australia."
