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.

Term 3 2020 Progress Statements and Meetings

Progress Statements provide a brief overview of a student’s level of achievement and work practices in each of their subjects in Term 3. This is followed by a more detailed report at the end of 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.

Music lessons online

The Mae Collard School of Music is now 100% online for music lessons at Mater Christi College.

We offer joyful and quality online lessons via the Zoom platform and through this, students are able to continue their musical practice. We are so glad to be able to support our music students in continued music learning while at home.

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.

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.
