2017 Secondary Presentation Night

St Mary MacKillop College’s Annual Secondary Presentation Night was held on Thursday evening, 16 November, in the College gymnasium. This formal evening recognised the efforts of the College’s finest academic and performing arts students for the year, and also showcased a few of the highlights from 2017.

All Subject Awards for Years 7-12 were presented, as well as a number of Special Awards sponsored by various organisations and businesses.

Introducing Lisa, our new Aboriginal liaison officer

Lisa Weston joins the College community this term to work with all students, particularly our Aboriginal students, in promoting Aboriginal culture and providing a critical link to the community.

Having lived in the South West all her life, Lisa loves anything to do with the beach and summer, including swimming, fishing and BBQs. She also has a real passion for education, with four children of her own, and joins our student support team from a similar role at Busselton Senior High School.

St Joseph’s Wyndham grateful for library donations

Staff and students of St Joseph’s Wyndham were very grateful for the donation of books and headphones from our Annual Book Fair, presented at the school's assembly at the end of last term.

"I wish I could have captured the excitement and joy on the faces of the students" said Peta Somma, who visited the school with her daughter Gabriella while on leave, and presented the donations at the assembly.

MacKillop Rocks Holiday Fun

To encourage students to get outside over the holidays in between the rain, and to create a fun College community event, the Student Council set up a rock painting emporium in the Primary Campus undercover area at the end of last term, to create rock treasures to be hidden, found and enjoyed by other families over the break.

High Tea for Timor and Raffle results

The ‘High Tea for Timor’ has become one of the highlights of the College’s social calendar, not only as a great celebration of community, but also as a significant fundraising event for the communities and schools we support each year in East Timor.
