Drop Everything and Read

Year 7 students are being challenged to ‘Drop Everything And Read’ (DEAR) for at least 10 minutes each day throughout Term 3, as part of the Wide Reading program.

The competition will be fierce for the class and student who read the most with prizes and incentives on offer.

UPDATED – Semester 1 Reports and Progress Meetings

On Friday 17 July we will provide a Progress Report for Semester 1 via MyMCC. As you would understand, our usual way of working with students has been very different this term. Included in this change has been how we assess and report.

The content of the programs was reduced and some of the usual assessment activities have not been possible.

Principal’s Desk – 25 June 2020

I wish to add my congratulations to Maria Haggett on her appointment as Principal of Mater Christi College from 2021. We have started a program of regular communication and are looking forward to future occasions when Maria can meet with students, staff and families, formally and informally.

Traffic Management

Traffic Management and Safety around the College is a priority – for drivers, pedestrians and local residents.

For travelling to and from school, all drivers are asked to:

Travel with utmost care – observe 40 kmh zoning
Enter Bayview Road from the South end, not the Belgrave end, during peak times
Avoid double parking
Use the drop-off zone on Bayview Road, school side ONLY
Obey all parking signs – Council Parking Officers are often in the area

Thank you for your cooperation.

It was a crisp morning with the sun clearly on the rise as our VCE/VET & VCAL students, including some Year 10s doing higher studies, arrived at the College, mostly bright with energy and excitement.  While all were delighted with their new lockers and the treats within, it was predominantly the Year 12s who celebrated the loudest.
