Marlies : My Grandma had 8 years at her school in Germany and 1 year in Australia. Her school in Germany was very small because in the class they had years 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 together.

Entertainment Me (Paige) : Marlies : Mary Mackillop : Mary did alot of horse back riding as a young girl. Her family was very poor therefore she didnt have alot of things to entertain herself. She was very passionate about her animals and spent alot of time with them. Transport Me (Paige): Marlies: Mary MacKillop: Mary got around by
stagecoaches, wagons, foot,
horses and for long trips
steam locomotives. Interesting Facts 1. Mary's parents were Scottish and Mary's Dad came to Australia in 1838 and her mum in 1840. When Mary was on the farm a man came to take her pet cow because her family owed him money. Mary jumped on a wild colt and went to her relatives to get money to pay the man and save her favourite cow. From then on Mary continued to rescue people like the poor. 2. 3. Mary's famous saying was: "never see an evil without trying to find a remedy" MacKillop, 1958 p1 as cited in (Insera, 1995). 4. Mary was the first female Australian Saint. Mary MacKillop was also known as Mother Mary of the Cross. 5. References Inserra, R. (1995). Mary MacKilliop. Holy Mother to the poor. Carlton, Australia: Cardigan Street Publishers.

Mary MacKillop. (n.d.). In Wikipedia. Retrieved March 27, 2012, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Mackillop When my Grandma was young she would get around by walking and riding a bike. My granmother grew up in Germany after the war. The Russians took their house and belongings so they had no money to buy a car. I get around by taking the bus. My mum drives me in our 4X4 car and I can choose to take the train. I can also ride a bike, roller blade, scooter or walk. My Grandmas entertainment was catching mice and cutting their tails off for money, collecting snails for money and when it was winter playing in the snow. My entertainment is very different because they had none of the things that entertain me back when Mary and my Grandma were little like T.V's, computers, At the age of 3 my grandma and her family escaped from East Germany which is where the Russians had taken over and they escaped to West Germany. My Grandma went with her mother and her brother to West Germany and her father went in a different direction to them. My grandma did not see her dad for one year. In 1871 Mary MacKillop was banished from The Catholic Church. Bishop Sheil who was the leader of the church excommunicated her because he did not agree with her. The ban was lifted one year later. In March 2002 my family moved from Perth to Melbourne so we could be closer to my relatives. I had only ever lived in Perth and in Canada. 1947 1951 Born Escaped
