Mary Mackilliop show


On Thursday our school had the privilege of seeing a play about Mary Mackillop in our school hall and why she became the first saint from New Zealand and Australian . Mary Mackillop was born in Australia and the Mackillop family was poor and need some food . Their was a man who's name was Scott and there was a girl who name was Julia where performed the play. I thought that Scott was funny and the crowd laughing at him and Mary Mackillop was played by Julie

Scott had riped clothes and Mary Mackillop told Scott to go to Saint Joseph home and they will help you and your family . When Scott came back he told Mary Mackillop that her sister died . Mary Mackillop want to go to see her sister and she need a ride a short distance to see her sister even though she was dead. She went to the place but there were people drinking in this place and a man , Kelly, and Mary Mackillop went to see her sister after she died.

Another part of the play told us about when Mary’s Dad was milking the cow and need to push the cows and seven people had to push this one cow and Scott told them your standing on the cow would work. After the helpers finished they sat back down and after an few more parts of the story it revealed that Mary was now a Saint . Many members of her family were happy that Mary Mackillop was a Saint. Even Mr Coakley had a part in the play as he had to throw a pillow to Scoot and to try and land on the billy cart.

Well I enjoyed the show and I now feel I know Mary Mackillop better.
