Science and STAR Weeks

Week 5 was Science Week, which was a great celebration of all things Science!

Our Science Week activities included: The Satellite Selfie, Kahoots at each campus, viewing of documentaries, the Deep Diver STEMCchallenge, The Taskmaster Scavenger Hunt, a sherbet making activity, the Daily PC Challenge, Paper Plane Challenge, Parachute Challenge, Chemistry Clock Challenge, and ‘Guess the Scientist’ competition. Congratulations to the participants and winners of these events!

A big thank you needs to go out to the Science staff who worked so hard on the events, the Maintenance team and students who helped make the Satellite Selfie banners, to the students who came along and participated in the recess and lunchtime activities, and to all the PCs and teachers who had a go at the Daily Science Challenge and Scavenger Hunts.

Following Science Week was Science Technician Appreciation & Recognition Week (STAR Week) in Week 6. The Science Faculty would like to acknowledge the amazing work that Mrs Yuka O’Connor does for the St Peter’s Campus and Mrs Janis McGettrick does for the Padua Campus. They are both so helpful, so thoughtful, so proactive and so skilful. We wouldn’t be able to achieve half of what we do without their incredible input. Thank you!

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
