The College’s Cross Country Carnival was held at each campus on Friday 19 May.
The Cross Country Carnival is a community event that is designed for maximum participation and the promotion of a positive, healthy lifestyle.
In the morning, senior students had the chance to opt in and join Year 10 in the running of the St Peter’s Campus Cross Country during Period 1. Students ran a 5km course around Isabella Plains or had the option to walk/run a 3km course.
In Periods 3 and 4, Years 7-9 stopped their regularly scheduled classes to participate in the Padua Campus Cross Country. The 2.5km course circled the Padua Campus and a small section of Wanniassa.
The top performers from the carnivals have now qualified for the ASC Cross Country Championships. Congratulations to all of our participants and thank you to Romina Schofield and Jen Fahey, who led the organisation of the two carnivals.

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.
