Ancient China Day


On Monday 13 May, The Museum of Ancient China visited Mater Christi to introduce our next unit of study in Year 7 Humanities.

The sessions explored many Ancient Chinese ideas and concepts. Students were able to immerse themselves in activities like Kung Fu and lantern making, as well as be informed about ancient Chinese inventions that still impact our world today.

Year 7 Humanities


Year 7 students have been exploring the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals in Humanities.

As an introductory exercise, students created pic collages around various forms of inequality. We then narrowed our focus to Goal Number 5 - Gender Equality, examining challenges that many girls and women face around the world.

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.

Year 7 STEM Day


Robotics, coding, virtual reality and a presentation; were some of the activities the year 7’s participated in at the Yarra Ranges Tech School.

The virtual reality activity was very interesting. Once you had the headset on, it was like you were in a different world! We had to guide a spider through a maze using a controller, then created our own character.

A focus on wellbeing for Year 7


Year 7 can be a huge year in the lives of students.  As girls transition from primary to secondary school they face a range of new challenges and opportunities, along with the uncertainty that comes with establishing new friendships and finding their place at school.

Middle School Cross Country 2017

The MCC Middle School’s Cross Country event took place last Friday, June 2. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the competition as it turned out to be a perfect day with the sun shining.  It was great to see all the girls giving it a go even if they were walking!

The girls enjoyed  lunch at Grant’s Picnic Ground before walking back to school for the awards.
