​What's Happening at the College

 

 

2019 and 2020 Welcome Interviewshttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp.aspx2019 and 2020 Welcome Interviews<p> <img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp/Welcome2%20(Small).JPG" alt="Welcome2 (Small).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:225px;" /><br></p><p>Our community of staff and students came together on Saturday 17th March to welcome over 150 families who will be joining us in 2019 and 2020. The interviews were a great way for us to get to know the girls and for them to share a little of their story with us. Our next opportunity for students of 2019 to learn more about the College and meet their fellow students will be a special activity session at the College Open Day on 20th May.<br></p>
Year 8 Liquid Nitrogen Demonstrationhttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes.aspxYear 8 Liquid Nitrogen Demonstration <div><div> <img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes/Nitro2%20(Small).jpg" alt="Nitro2 (Small).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></div><div> </div>As part of their study of Chemistry and the properties of substances the Year 8 science students took part in a liquid nitrogen demonstration. The demonstration saw the girls hypothesising and analysing the effects of liquid nitrogen on a variety of substances. Flowers, balloons, ping pong balls and elastic bands were no match for the -196°C temperature of the liquid nitrogen. The girls were able to examine the impact of the significant temperature change and link what they were seeing to the movements of the particles. The highlights of the demonstration were the clouds produced when the liquid nitrogen was poured on the ground and the ice cream produced during the demonstration. <br><br><p>​Many thanks go to all of those who made the event a possibility, most notably our lab technician Mrs Michelle Sheldrick for her work in the lead up and on the day and to the Year 8 science teachers, <strong>Ms Andrea Hickey, Mr Gareth Whittaker, Mr Ken Mayers, Mrs Peta Holton, Ms Louise Nott </strong>and <strong>Ms Tania Meredith</strong> for all their work on the day and throughout the term.<br></p></div>
Year 7 Physical Challengehttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Book-Week-Parade.aspxYear 7 Physical Challenge<div><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Book-Week-Parade/7PC1%20(Small).jpg" alt="7PC1 (Small).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:400px;" /><br></div><div><br></div>Last week our Year 7 students attended the Kindilan Outdoor Education Centre for their Physical Challenge. Despite the overcast skies and muddy conditions this was a wonderful day. Students spent the day abseiling, gliding, canoeing and problem solving in teams, as part of their Year 7 transition program. The focus of this day was to develop communication and problem-solving skills, enhance team work and allow students to push themselves outside of their comfort zone. All students were able to achieve success thanks to their instructors and teachers, <strong>Ms Carly Richardson, </strong><strong><strong>M</strong>s Andrea Hickey, Mr Brendan Styles, Mrs Catriona Duff, Mrs Jenny Byrne, Mrs Rebecca Hunt </strong>and<strong> Ms Liz Casey. </strong><br><br><p style="text-align:justify;">Such opportunities are important for the holistic development of our students and for allowing them to step outside of their comfort zones in order to discover their true capabilities. <br></p>
Inaugural Josephite School Symposiumhttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Cheer-and-Sports-Aerobics.aspxInaugural Josephite School Symposium<p> <img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Cheer-and-Sports-Aerobics/Symp3%20(Small).jpg" alt="Symp3 (Small).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:225px;" /><br></p>Between 1870 and 2003, the Sisters of St Joseph opened sixty-nine Parish primary schools, forty-six of which are still continuing, five Parish secondary schools, and our own College, which was the only secondary school owned by the Congregation.  On Friday 16 March three of those schools came together for the first joint Student Symposium. Led by Ms Susan Goves, teachers and students from Our Lady's College Annerley, Clairvaux MacKillop College at Mt Gravatt and Mary MacKillop College came together to develop a united mission for walking in Mary MacKillop's footsteps. <br><br><p>Those gathered for the afternoon heard from speakers representative of JJAMM, Josephite Associates and the Sisters of Saint Joseph. Ms Mary Hilton, Mrs Catherine Rodden, Sr Chris Symonds, Sr Angela Carroll and Sr Valerie Huston (past Corpus Christi student), all addressed the students and challenged them to take time to truly know themselves in order to help and serve others and to be change agents who make a difference. <br></p><p><br></p>
