MacKillop kicked off its House Charity fundraising campaign at the annual Variety Night on 30 May with an evening of entertainment, performances, games, prizes, and celebration.

Held at the Padua Campus Theatrette, students delivered a range of stunning vocal and instrumental performances, breathtaking dance pieces, emotional drama routines, musical theatre, calisthenics, comedy pieces, and even a puppet show!

The talents of students from across all years of the College were of an extremely high standard.

The fundraising focus was new for the 2019 edition of Variety Night. Student Representative Council members introduced the four House Charities – Veteran 360, Rise Above, the Ricky Stuart Foundation, and Headspace – and led a number of games to encourage donations from the audience. A number of prizes were on offer from the following organisations: South Point, Rebel Sport Tuggeranong, Kmart Tuggeranong, Surf Dive N Ski, and Limelight Cinemas. The College thanks these businesses for their donations as well as members of the audience for their contributions towards the four House Charities.

Congratulations to all involved - the performers, the hosts and MCs, the sound and lighting crew, the backstage team, the Performing Arts faculty, and the Student Representative Council. Particular thanks to Flynn Gibbs-Patterson (Performing Arts Captain) and Mrs Petrina Mansfield, who coordinated the event, as well as Infinite Lights and Sound, who provided special assistance on the night.
