65 MSM French students from Years 9 to 12 attended the French Film Festival screening of ‘Rémi sans Famille’ at the weekend. Students and staff laughed, cried and were completely enchanted by this visually beautiful, emotion-charged film – many saying it was one of the best films they had ever seen!

Year 11 Visual Arts in Practice students engaged in a class Skype conference by Nid Kelly, Head of National/International Wholesale, Retail and Visual Merchandising for ELK. The presentation focus was Sustainable Design with a retail industry perspective and ethical design processes. It was an invaluable and enriching opportunity for the students to visit a creative workplace and meet their staff.
Congratulations to Siena D’Arienzo of Year 10, who is representing MSM as one of 60 students from Brisbane schools to be selected for the 2019 Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. Yesterday she attended her first meeting and was thrilled to meet The Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk.

At our Ash Wednesday Liturgy last morning, we commenced our Lenten Journey and our forty days of preparation and reflection. At our Liturgy, all members of our community were marked on their forehead with a cross of ashes as a sign of our penitence and our commitment to following the example of Jesus Christ.
