Where are they now? Melanie Shears (2003)

It’s hard to summarise my journey from Mater Christi student to malaria research scientist in a few paragraphs.

There were so many alternative paths I could have taken. My academic and professional career path has not been a straight line, but it led me to where I am today - living overseas and working in an area of science that I find meaningful and engaging.

WOW GirledWorld Summit

After learning about GirledWorld during our Knowledge Week, Patricia, Rithika and Samantha were inspired to participate in the GirledWorld Summit… and as described by Patricia, it was a powerful experience indeed.

The GirledWorld Summit  on the weekend has given me so much motivation and confidence and has made me understand the potential and strength of young women.

Principal’s Desk 19 June 2018

June 19th, 2018

The term is ending and midyear holidays await; a welcome reward following a busy term, productive in so many ways. In addition to involvement in formal curriculum learning, I congratulate those students who have participated more broadly in additional academic, cultural, social justice and sporting challenges.

Laptop Insurance Excess

June 19th, 2018

Our insurer has advised that effective from 1 July 2018, the insurance excess for repairs to the MacBook laptops will increase slightly to $250, and $200 for iPads.

The College has provided covers for each mobile device to minimise damage, and as with all property, we encourage students to exercise due care.
