I am pleased to announce the 2014 SACE results for Mary MacKillop College.
We are delighted with these results and congratulate our 2014 Year 12 students on their dedication to their studies and their outstanding success.
I trust that our website opens a window into the rich and vibrant life of Mary MacKillop College. Many people have suggested to me that our College is a “hidden gem”, tucked away behind Portrush Road in a quiet leafy street.
Our College is small in terms of student numbers and that enables strong and enduring relationships to be developed quickly between staff and students. These quality relationships go hand in hand with quality teaching and learning. Our girls feel at home and very much part of the College community.
The College has a strong connection with the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and we honour these historical connections and look to the future with hope and a sense of purpose to continually develop a faith filled community inspired by the service of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia’s first saint.
Eight MacKillop girls and their teacher, Claire MacLennan have embarked on an expedition to Cambodia and Vietnam as part of the World Challenge program for students.
Congratulations to Alana Giacomelli.
This year we are pleased to introduce a new award to the College. The Mary MacKillop Award recognises the outstanding contribution made by a student who demonstrates love of service and love of learning in the footsteps of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
We congratulate Alana Giacomelli for receiving the 2014 Award.
The Year 8 students have been quietly taking on the spirit of Mary MacKillop College throughout their first year, gaining confidence and leadership in their work and life at the school. On Thursday 30 October they helped us prepare for the arrival of future MacKillop girls at our last Come ‘n’ Try Day for 2014.
Our Year 8 girls took on the responsibility of hospitality and presentation as they greeted and chaperoned our special visitors from surrounding Primary Schools as they discovered what it is like to be a MacKillop Girl for a day.
On Thursday 23 October 2014 the Mary MacKillop College community extended prayers and best wishes to our graduating Year 12 students who, on Monday 3 November 2014, will begin their SACE final exams. A memorable and touching farewell Mass was held at St Ignatius Church led by Father Jo Dooley, and was followed by the Year 12 Award Assembly.
