​What's Happening at the College

 

 

MacKillop Women of 2018http://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp.aspxMacKillop Women of 2018<p>​<img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp/DSC_0010.JPG" alt="DSC_0010.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:233px;" /><br></p><p>We belong to a web of creation in which nothing, absolutely nothing, is inconsequential. This oneness of all that is, this infinite unity, is powerfully symbolised in the Christ-centred Celtic knot – emblem of Mary MacKillop College. </p><p>A MacKillop education inspires hope-filled, Christ-like living, powerfully symbolised in the MacKillop resurrection cross. When faced with hatred, we are to let love prevail; when confronted by sinfulness, return mercy; stand for truth in the face of falsehood; do good, stand up for good, insist on good, spread good.  </p><p>As the school year draws to a close, we are graced with a time to reflect upon the many contributions made to this wonderful community of Mary MacKillop during 2018. Thankyou!</p><p><strong>MacKillop Women of 2018</strong></p><p>You are vital to this big, beautiful, amazing world. This world needs you. Compassionate women. Women who both create and embrace new possibilities. Women who love to learn and to live. <em>Thank you!</em></p><p><strong>Parents, Families and Friends of Mary MacKillop College 2018</strong></p><p>You hold your daughter, your niece, granddaughter, sister, friend… in caring embrace; in love and awe. The impact of your love knows no limits. <em>Thankyou!</em></p><p><strong>Staff of Mary MacKillop College 2018</strong></p><p>Your vocation to education is a blessing to the world. You shape the lives of our MacKillop Women in profoundly important ways. You have connected in spirit, in intellect, in hope and faith. <em>Thankyou!</em></p><p><strong>2018 has been a great year at Mary MacKillop College.</strong> A browse through the pages of MacKillop News since January, or through our Facebook page, or through the College Annual provides snippets of insight into the life and spirit of a MacKillop education. But our story has much more to it than any published story can ever tell. Pope Francis said, “Educating is an act of love, it is like giving life." St Mary of the Cross MacKillop said, “Love one another and bear with one another, and let love guide you in all your life." (1909). A MacKillop education is an education of the heart – a heart formed in love to bring compassion, peace and justice to the world.<br></p><p><br></p>
SHAKESPEARIENCEhttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes.aspxSHAKESPEARIENCE <p>​<br><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes/Drama1.jpg" alt="Drama1.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:197px;" /><br></p><p>The Year 11 Drama class last week presented their last performance assessment task for the year and had a fabulous experience in doing so!</p><p>Within a time frame of only three weeks, the pressure was on for students to shape extracts from William Shakespeare's great tragedy <strong><em>“Macbeth" </em></strong>into a contemporary performance with re-contextualisation and interpretation. </p><p>The girls worked diligently on making artistic choices including costumes, lighting, music and sound effects. They also had to block their movement, learn lines and provide sufficient analysis as presented in their written prompt book to support all their choices.</p><p>The final group performance was a credit to the Year 11 Drama class and was appreciated by their parent audience.</p><p>What a successful <strong><em>“Shakespearience</em></strong>" we all had as a result of the commendable effort from these wonderful students! </p><p>Caption: <strong>Megan Charlouis</strong> as MACBETH and <strong>Willow Kohn</strong> as BANQUO.</p><p>Caption: <strong>Tiffany Visser, Alyssa Mewburn</strong> and <strong>Bailey Maujean</strong> as the three WITCHES in <em>“Macbeth".</em></p><p><br></p>

Lord Mayor's Youth Advisory Councilhttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Book-Week-Parade.aspxLord Mayor's Youth Advisory Council<div>​​​​​​​<img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Book-Week-Parade/Poppy.jpg" alt="Poppy.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:247px;" /><br><br></div><p><strong></strong></p><p><strong></strong></p>This year I had the great opportunity to be part of the 2018 Lord Mayor's Youth Advisory Council. LMYAC is a group of Year 10 students from a range of schools who come together to work towards improving Brisbane. This year our goal was to make Brisbane more vibrant and creative, through our various project ideas presented to the Lord Mayor.<br><br>Along with attending meetings throughout the year, I was lucky enough to be involved in many events representing the College, including the Brisbane Lantern Parade, Homeless Connect, Mental Health Workshops, National Flag Ceremony and the 100+ Club Morning Tea. <br><br>From this experience, I have met so many amazing people and have gained many leadership skills, such as the importance of voicing your ideas and would highly recommend this rewarding experience to other students. <br><br><strong>​Poppy Clements Year 10 F4</strong><br><br><p><strong><br></strong></p>
