This term, one of our Grade 8 students, Yumi, had a chance to design and create costumes for an assignment in class. Her Drama teacher was so impressed with the costumes, that he wanted to use them for Drama classes and asked to purchase them. Yumi wanted to donate the costumes to school as she was not comfortable to receive money for them. That's when her English teacher recommended using that money to sponsor underprivileged children.
They found a boy named Lucky on the website, Children.org... Read More

The Habitat for Humanity Club would like to thank the Saint Maur community for all the contributions to our Toy Drive. We received much more than we expected and will be taking 9 boxes full of toys and balls to Cambodia. We are certain the children in the villages we will be donating them to will be extremely pleased and we will post pictures when we return.
Thank you again for supporting the Saint Maur Habitat for Humanity Club.

On Wednesday 10th April twenty one excited students from Grade 3 paid a visit to Dr. Suzuki in the Chemistry Lab.

Students participated in a variety of demonstrations and carried out some of their own practical work. They learned about the importance of obtaining scientific evidence to distinguish between gases that looked the same. They collected hydrogen gas and found out that it... Read More

For Christians everywhere, Easter is the most important festival. It is a festival of great joy because Christ was risen from the dead and overcame the power of death. Therefore it was with great shock and sadness we watched the news of the attacks on Catholic churches during Easter Sunday masses in Sri Lanka which has caused 207 deaths so far.
Lord God – as each of us understands you – help us to recognize the truth and beauty in all religious faiths when they are lived with good will and... Read More

I am very grateful to the PSG for the purchase of a complete new set of Lectionaries for the chapel. These are the rather large books containing the daily and Sunday readings for Mass. They are from Collegeville Press, Saint John's Abbey. Our previous Lectionary was a single volumn and was in poor condition so it needed to be replaced. The new books are certainly a great addition to the chapel resources.
