On her way to an electrical apprenticeship

March 11th, 2021

With so many different Vocational Education Training (VET) courses available to secondary students through TAFE, Alicia has been able to pursue a trade alongside her VCAL studies.

This year I am doing a VET Certificate II in Electrotechnology at Swinburne TAFE. In this course, we learn about the ins and outs of the work of an electrician.

Principal’s Desk – 4 March 2021

As I write this post, I am conscious of the many things that have already occurred in the first month of the 2021 school year. When I last wrote, we had congratulated our high achievers of 2020 and welcomed Year 7 students, some of whom were still a little nervous about what secondary school might hold for them.

Homework Club and Maths Support

Seeking help when needed is one of the keys to success. The following options are available to students who are looking for extra guidance in their studies.

The exciting world of Science and Biotechnology

February 23rd, 2021

An opportunity to take part in the BIOTech Futures Challenge Victoria gave Jessie insight into the exciting and diverse areas of Science and the endless possibilities of Biotechnology. Jessie and her team designed a reverse shoulder arthroplasty implant that eliminates complications typically experienced with conventional shoulder replacements.

Putting your hand up pays off

Brave and determined, Emily has continuously put her hand up, seized opportunities and set herself up for success.

She believes the most rewarding experiences are those that come from taking a leap of faith and putting yourself forward.

A love of Art and Design

With an interesting combination of Maths, Art and Language subjects, College Co-Captain India kept her options open.

India believes her love of Art has helped her throughout her schooling, providing an outlet during Year 12 and her leadership duties.

What is excellence?

Maria Haggett's message to students at the High Achievers Assembly was that excellence comes in many forms and requires more than natural talent and intelligence. It requires persistence, hard work and a willingness to ask for help.

Today we wish to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the Year 12 Class of 2020, through the acknowledgment of achievement in VCE & VCAL.  We will also be presenting awards to students who attained excellent results in Year 7 - 11  2020. 

We are streaming this today to our special guests, so on behalf of you all I extend a special welcome, for their final Mater Christi Assembly, to the high achievers of the Year 12 Class of 2020 and their families.

Celebrating our High Achievers of 2020

We were delighted to celebrate student achievement at our High Achievers Assembly today, with Year 12 2020 students, parents, grandparents, guardians and family friends joining us via zoom .

Congratulations to all students who can feel proud of their achievements in learning and are looking forward with excitement and anticipation to the next stage of their education journey.
