Year 7 Community Day

Building on Year 7's start to high school

In order to help Year 7 build upon their impressive start to high school, students took part in their Community Day on Wednesday 23 March. 
Year 7 Community Day gave students the opportunity to participate in House-based activities focused on team work, collaboration, and leadership. They also had the chance to interact with their House group, helping them to extend their friendship groups and to strengthen the relationships they had already formed with members of their Pastoral Care classes.
As part of the day, students watched a performance about Mary MacKillop’s life and they also took part in a leadership workshop with the Assistant Principal Pastoral Care, Mr Paul Durham. Mr Durham encouraged Year 7 students to consider running for the Student Representative Council, with the election process set to commence this term. 
The College congratulates Year 7 for their enthusiastic participation in the Community Day. The leadership and collaboration on display reflected the positive attitude Year 7 have brought to their transition to high school!

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.
