Back to school for Term 2

St Mary MacKillop College enjoyed a positive start to Term 2 as students returned from the April school holidays today.

Students started the day with an ANZAC Liturgy during Pastoral Care, before they returned to their classrooms freshly rejuvenated from their two-week break. 

There were some noticeable changes on campus, with updates to COVID protocols meaning students were no longer required to wear masks indoors. An outline of the protocol updates was emailed to parents this afternoon.

Term 2 is one of the busiest stages of the College calendar, with Open Days, the Careers Expo, Try MacKillop Day, NAPLAN, the Cross Country, Urban Challenge, exams, camps, pastoral events, and reflection days all packed into the 10-week period. On top of these events, students are now able to return to school sport and other extra-curricular activities with the changes to COVID restrictions.

The enthusiasm for the term ahead was evident in the attitude students brought to today. Congratulations to all students on the way they commenced the term!

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
