A perfect combination for success

The supportive learning environment at Mater Christi, as well as the benefits of the VCAL program, combined to create a recipe for success for Jess.

A confident, positive and friendly person, Jessica chose Mater Christi mainly because it offered the learning support she needed.

The power of a Personal Project

College Co-Captain Jasmine has received considerable praise for her first published research paper, regarding fauna survey work she conducted in Sassafras Creek.

Jasmine initially conducted the research and wrote the article as part of her Year 10 Personal Project at Mater Christi.

Balance and discipline pays off

 

Balance, discipline and undeniable talent have combined to see 2021 College
Co-Captain Cassidy well on her way to a career in the Fashion industry.

Maintaining a healthy balance between her studies and social life, was the recipe for success for 2021 College Co-Captain Cassidy.

Varied opportunities enhance the secondary school experience

While Molly primarily focused on Maths and Science, she also chose to take up the many and varied opportunities offered during her time at Mater Christi. She believes doing so, enhanced her secondary school experience.

With an innate curiosity about the world and our universe, Molly studied primarily Maths and Science based subjects and hopes to make a positive contribution to the world of STEM in her career.

The support of a teacher can be pivotal

When one of her teachers supported Bailey to work through some challenges and discover her strengths, it set her on a path to study Education Support, and fulfil her desire to be a teacher.

With a passion for helping those around her feel equal and heard, Bailey has always wanted to be a teacher.

World Championship Cheerleading

Ever wondered what it takes to get to world championship level Cheerleading – and win? Charli and Sienna can tell you!

These resilient, hardworking MCC students recently competed, with their Cheer team – Outlaw Kelly Girls, in the Virtual Cheer World Championships, coming 1st place in the International All Girl Open Level 6.

A huge achievement, by any measure, but particularly given a number of setbacks due to the COVID pandemic.
