Welcome Year 7, 2019http://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp.aspxWelcome Year 7, 2019<p><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp/Orientation.JPG" alt="Orientation.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:174px;" /><br></p><div>Last Sunday afternoon we welcomed the Year 7 students and families starting at Mary MacKillop College in 2019. This orientation session is part of our comprehensive focus on building strong relationship with our new students and families such that they feel part of the community even before their very first school day at the College.  It was a wonderful afternoon. We hope you feel that you are already becoming MacKillop Women!<br></div>
We can get smarter!http://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes.aspxWe can get smarter! <p><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes/Learn1.jpg" alt="Learn1.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:166px;" /><br></p><p>Six staff from Mary MacKillop College recently attended the Australian Council of Educational Leaders national conference in Melbourne. There was much to ponder.<br></p><p>Two ideas that resonated particularly powerfully and perhaps they will also with you. They were shared by renowned educator, Andy Hargreaves.</p><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><p style="text-align:center;">A person will virtually never admit that they can't read. There's a real stigma to that. But Maths – you sit in any room and people will say to you, very openly, “I don't do maths".<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>We have to stop this…for the sake of our kids</strong>. </p></td></tr></tbody></table><br><p> What learning/life disposition is coherent with the following?*  <br></p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>It's as important as intelligence in student success.<br></li><li>It's as important as persistence in student success.</li><li>It supports better job performance.</li><li>It leads to better relationships.</li><li>People with more of it have greater life satisfaction.<br></li><li>It helps us live longer.</li><li>It's one of the key characteristics of the MMC learner.</li></ul><p> </p><p>These are powerful reminders of the impact of mindset on life and learning. The brain can make new connections and corrections. We can get smarter. </p><p><a href="https://www.mindsetworks.com/Assets/images/science/the-science/the-growth-mindset-i-can-get-smarter-large.jpg"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://www.mindsetworks.com/Assets/images/science/the-science/the-growth-mindset-i-can-get-smarter-large.jpg</span></a> </p><p>A fixed mindset can have a devastating impact. It limits our potential. A fixed mindset: avoids fears or challenges; gives up when things get tough; thinks trying hard doesn't change things; doesn't want to learn from mistakes; judges others when they are successful; not interested or motivated to move learning forward. Thinking disposition makes such a difference. </p><p>We have an individual and communal responsibility to cultivate growth mindsets. Our MacKillop Women need this. We need this.<br></p><p><br></p>
