Term 4 Reports and Progress Meetings

October 15th, 2020

Progress Reports provide a detailed overview of a student’s level of achievement and work practices in each of their subjects in Semester 2. Each reporting period is supported by the opportunity for parents and students to meet with teachers at Progress Meetings for more detailed conversations about student learning.

Where are they now? Tayla Little (2013)

For Tayla, Year 12 presented both opportunities for personal growth and significant challenges. Her message to current Year 12s is 'you will be ok'.

Wow, just like that, 7 years after graduating at Mater Christi, I count myself lucky to be following the same passion for business as I did back in Year 12, with Ms Callahan.

Year 7 DEAR Challenge

October 6th, 2020

 

Without access to the Learning Commons and the print collection, the Year 7 students have well and truly risen to the Drop Everything And Read Challenge and read for over 189,000 minutes (3,150 hours).

The objective of the challenge was to encourage students to read an additional ten minutes every day to establish good reading habits as well as broadening their interests in different genres.

Principal’s Desk – 17 September 2020

Yay!  We have finally reached the end of Third Term.  With ‘virtual’ fanfare and no reservations, I wish to congratulate our students, their parents, teachers and staff for the hard won levels of resilience and creativity demonstrated over the long wintry weeks of remote classes while in lockdown.

Introducing our College Principal from 2021

Following the announcement of Maria Haggett as College Principal from 2021, we are delighted to now introduce and welcome Maria to the Mater Christi community.

Maria was introduced to students at our Zoom Assembly this morning. She is excited and very much looking forward to taking up her new role.

2021 Leadership and more…

 

For a long time, I thought leaders had to be fearless.  But now, I know that true courage comes not from doing things without fear, but from doing things in spite of it.

As a College leader, I would not only work to continue what the previous leaders have achieved, but listen to your views and opinions on how we can enhance this great community even more.

VCAL Small Business Project

September 10th, 2020

During the pandemic this year, I decided to make masks and learn about running a small business.

I asked  Mrs Mugridge if she could  help me do the activity using the skills we are learning in our Certificate II Small Business class and arrange to have the money I raise donated to St Vincent de Paul.

SoJuSt Week

 

Recently, as a school community, we participated in Social Justice & Stewardship (SoJuSt) Week. Students engaged in a variety of challenges that focused on creating something in the areas of sustainability and environmental awareness.

Year 7 Humanities

 

Year 7 students have been exploring the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in Humanities.

As an introductory exercise, students created pic collages around various forms of inequality. We then narrowed our focus to Goal Number 5 - Gender Equality, examining challenges that many girls and women face around the world.

Science Week

September 8th, 2020

National Science Week was held across Australia from 15-23 August. Things were a little different this year due to remote learning, however the STEM Leaders and Science Team put on a great event throughout the week.

The theme for 2020 was “Deep Blue: Innovation for the future of our oceans”. At Mater Christi, we focussed on this aspect of National Science week as well as having fun with the various planned activities.
