Hospitality News: Cafe, cheesecake and cacao
Our new MacKillop Café, open twice a week and run by Year 12 Hospitality students, has been a hit with Year 12 students and staff. Regular patrons have taken to our new loyalty cards (buy 8 get 2 free), and the delicious chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies have also been popular.
Primary Campus Swimming Carnival
Thank you to all the staff and parents who assisted at our swimming carnival. Congratulations to all of our students. Everyone was very enthusiastic, tried their best and supported their fellow team mates.
The Secondary Campus Inter House Swimming Carnival was held in near perfect conditions at the Geographe Leisure Centre on Friday 19 February 2016.
When the doors opened at the new St Mary MacKillop College this month, primary students also had a new and unique classroom to enjoy - without any doors at all!
In fact Primary science teacher Miss Louise Cranley has even left out ceiling and walls with the completion of a sustainable garden and outdoor teaching space.
