Bright start to the new year (7 March 2014)
Itís been a busy start to the 2014 school year for St Mary MacKillop College!
On 12 February, the Isabella Campus held its Honours Assembly to celebrate the academic success of 2013.
On 21 February, MacKillop welcomed the new Archbishop, Christopher Prowse, who celebrated our Opening Mass at the Tuggeranong Basketball Stadium. After the Mass, Year 12 visited the Wanniassa Campus and spent time with junior students for the Year 12 Mentoring Day, which kicked off the Cross Campus Program that will see Year 12 students visit Wanniassa classrooms on a regular basis over the year.
Still to come in Term 1: The Swimming Carnival, Year 7 Community Day, and the Year 8 pilgrimages to Sydney.
