Dear Marist Regional College Families, 

Welcome to winter as we settle into a period of consistent, uninterrupted learning. 

As you may recall from Term One, we mentioned our intention to gather survey data from our community. Despite initial challenges with engaging a firm for this purpose, an opportunity has arisen with Catholic Education Tasmania, offering nine schools the chance to participate in a pilot program. I am delighted to announce that we are one of the chosen schools. I eagerly embraced this opportunity after attending a presentation at St Brendan-Shaw College recently. We are keen to assess our progress as a college, beginning with our own practices, policies, and procedures, and extending to broader cultural themes. This survey will become an annual event, enabling us to monitor our progress each year. 

At this stage of the year, I feel it is important to keep you informed about this process, following our initial announcement regarding the forthcoming survey. Your participation and feedback will be invaluable in helping us improve and grow as a community. We are excited to engage in this process with you and to follow up with our staff and Advisory Board to inform our direction and assess our progress against established goals. 

Year 7 Enrolment Interviews and Applications 

Secondly, I would like to express my gratitude to all the families who attended the Year 7 enrolment interviews on Wednesday evening. Please remember to apply, as all positions for 2025 will be offered in August. We have received around 200 applications for only 168 positions, underscoring the high demand for a quality education at Marist Regional College. 

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the success of our school. 

A Message from Father John this week 

Dear Parishioners, 

Unfortunately, due to Covid—there will be NO Masses this coming weekend, 8/9 June, and during the weekdays that follow, namely Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. 

Could I please ask for your help in spreading this message to other regular Mass goers (friends or acquaintances who might need to know) so that the majority of people attending our four churches are aware of the situation. 

Best regards, and please do your best to stay safe. 

Fr. John 

Yours in family, faith, love, and solidarity, 


Gregg Sharman
