The College celebrated its annual MacKillop Day Mass and Celebrations on a beautiful spring day on Friday 13 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 2019 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 leading the liturgy.

The activities at the Isabella Campus were festive, with activities like bumper balls, the bungee run, video games, crazy hair spray, 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.
