College celebrates Feast Day

The College was blessed with beautiful spring weather for its annual MacKillop Day Mass and Celebrations on Friday 14 September.

Taking place just over a month after Mary MacKillop's official Feast Day on 8 August, students were able to celebrate as a whole school and our Class of 2018 could take time to relax after completing the AST in Week 7.

The day commenced with Mass at the Tuggeranong Basketball Stadium and concluded with a range of fun activities and stalls at the Isabella Campus.

The Mass was a moving occasion, with the College Choir creating a reflective and reverent mood and Fr James Antony from the Corpus Christi Parish spending his first MacKillop Day Mass with us since becoming our College Chaplain.

The activities at the Isabella Campus were festive, with activities like bumper balls, an obstacle course, the bungee run, NERF games, face painting, video games, upbeat music, and a wide range of food and drink. 

The winners of the College-wide INSPIRE Art Competition were also announced at the exhibition in F Block.

All students are to be congratulated for their participation, dignity, reverence, and the spirited sense of community, which helped to make MacKillop Day a fantastic celebration of the Feast of our patron, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
