It is valuable time as it gives me a chance to check in on their progress and have a conversation about what next year might look like.

Dear Families and Friends of Mary MacKillop College,
It was a delight to see so many girls arrive back at school for face to face teaching. They were excited to be back after more than three weeks at home and so happy to see friends again and catch up with their teachers.
What does student leadership at Mary MacKillop College look like in action when the norm has changed?
