Mary MacKillop was full of hope and spirit,
An act of a mother for all poor children,
Remembered by all her children that she taught,
Young children were taught how to read and write by the spiritual Mary MacKillop.
Mary MacKillop was born in 1842 and died in 1909,
Amazing and poor by teaching spiritually,
Caring for children was her passion,
Kind and very spiritual that she didn’t write anything about herself.
I hope people still remember her, she cared for others and not herself.
Loving and caring and never showed hatred to others.
Lots of children must have been sad when their wonderful teacher died.
Oh she was so kind,
Poor children she taught at St Joeph’s schools that were built.
