NEW BE­GIN­NINGS FOR MARY MACKIL­LOP

Highfields' Own - - Education -

The 2017 Mary Mackil­lop Open Day was a huge suc­cess.

With many of the par­ents and new fam­i­lies vis­it­ing se­nior school, the re­sound­ing state­ment of the event seemed to be, “you have re­ally grown over the last cou­ple of years!”.

Mary Mackil­lop has grown, with so much on of­fer and great op­por­tu­ni­ties for high school stu­dents as they jour­ney through their sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.

Stu­dent-led tours and stu­dent per­for­mances were the high­light of the day.

The year seven, eight and nine stu­dents shone as they shared what they love about Mary Mackil­lop.

Guests com­mented on the at­mos­phere and ex­cel­lence of the learn­ing spa­ces, the qual­ity of stu­dent work on dis­play, the friendly en­vi­ron­ment, the pas­sion and care of the teach­ers and the pos­i­tive com­mu­nity feel, which was out­stand­ing in ev­ery way.

“The fa­cil­i­ties are sec­ond-to-none, but what I no­ticed most was how fan­tas­tic the stu­dents and staff were,” a prospec­tive par­ent stated.

July 2017 will see the sec­ond stage ex­pan­sion be­gin, com­plet­ing the con­struc­tion and ex­pan­sion of spe­cialised build­ings.

This will in­clude rooms for in­dus­trial tech­nol­ogy de­sign, mu­sic and the arts, an undercover sports and assem­bly area, ad­min­is­tra­tion, tex­tiles and food tech­nol­ogy, a new sci­ence lab and a com­puter lab.

En­rol­ments for 2018 for years seven, eight, nine and 10 are now open.

Come and have a chat with the prin­ci­pal or con­tact Mary Mackil­lop on 4698 7777 or visit www.high­fields.catholic.edu.au for more in­for­ma­tion.
