Young Mary

The whole school went to watch a show about Mary MacKillop's life because she is Australia and New Zealand's first Saint. She lived in the 18oo's and was such a thoughtful, kind girl who became a Nun and continued to help people all her life. There were two people in the play. The man played lots of different characters. He was so funny and we laughed a lot. the show's message was "Never see a need without trying to do something about it."Young Mary on PhotoPeach
