Dear Parents, Students, and Friends,
Our staff prayer for Monday morning was our singing Away In A Manger. Listening to the voices at 8.20 am dealing with this most famous of Christmas carols was nothing short of inspiring.
Away in a manger, no crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from the night sky
And stay by my side till morning is nigh.
Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there.

Marist Catholic College North Shore New Uniform
We have now received the first version of the new uniform for the Kindergarten to Year 12 College which is to commence in 2021. We are in the consultation phase of this project. On Tuesday afternoon we invited all interested to view and comment on the proposed uniforms in the College Hall. Some parents have already proposed a number of changes. Please take this opportunity to have a say.
Staff Changes for 2020
Each year we have staff move on for a variety of reasons. This year is no different. It is always difficult to say goodbye to our colleagues/teachers who have been at the College for some period of time.
- John Boyle will finish up after being on leave for 2019
- John Bullivant will finish up after being on leave for 2019
- Jamie Collins will finish up after being on leave for 2019
- Amanda Conde will be on Maternity leave for 2020

Some of these teachers have been here for years and have been exemplary teachers. Others, also good teachers, have been here this year only on temporary contracts. We wish each of our colleagues every blessing as they move on to their next opportunity in life.
This is our final High Notes for 2019. I wish each of you every blessing over the Christmas season. I pray our time with family will be rewarding and peaceful!
