MacKillop Women Shine!http://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp.aspxMacKillop Women Shine!<p>​<br><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Senior-Visual-Art-and-Music-Camp/Lily%20Biddle1.jpg" alt="Lily Biddle1.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br><br></p><p><strong>​Lily Biddle</strong>, Year 11, competed in the Evolution Dance Competition, Fraser Coast Regionals in March in Maryborough.   Lily obtained 2<sup>nd</sup> for both her Tap and Hip Hop performances and also awarded an Evolution Elite award for being in the top 5 highest scores for the 16-20 year old Category.  </p><p>Amazing achievement Lily, congratulations!​ </p><p><strong>Anne Wasson</strong>, Year 12, came 4th in the U19 double Scull final in the National Rowing Championships and placed 4th in Australia!  Amazing achievement Anne, congratulations!'<br></p><p><br></p>
Japanese Activitieshttp://www.mmc.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Excellent-Year-12-Outcomes.aspxJapanese Activities <h2><img src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/Jap4.JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:500px;height:334px;" /><br></h2><p> </p><p>The focus of Term 2 Japanese has been Daily Activities and routines. We have learnt language associated with what time we get up, go to school and importantly eat. As part of this, some of our classes participated in making rice balls. The girls studied the language of food, etiquette of eating and similarities and differences between the two cultures. </p><p>Speaking more than one language is a great asset to cognitive processes. Studies show that learning another language results in higher performance across other school subjects. Students who study languages other than English tend to score better on standardised tests. It has been interesting to discuss with the girls that a 'chair' is not a 'chair' it is just the word we use to describe this object. Please see attached information from Brisbane Catholic Education. <br></p><p> </p><p>Practicing teacher, Ms Kyoko Sakaguchi taught Japanese culture to Japanese elective classes during her recent four-week practicum at MMC. Her work experience program was arranged by Griffith University - International Student Services in association with Nagoya University, Japan. <br></p><p>Kyoko-sensei, as she was known to our students, provided lessons on Japanese customs, J-Pop, Anime and origami. During demonstrations of Tea Ceremony (Sado) and Brush Calligraphy (Shodo), Kyoko invited many of our students to try these traditional arts under her expert tutelage. ​​<br></p><p><br></p>

I volunteered in the 'Turtle Hatchery' department as well as showcasing the artistic talent of primary schools all over Queensland in the 'Hatchery Crusaders' area. </em></p><p><em>My role in these departments was to oversee and take care of the baby turtles that were hatching at the festival and to display and explain the artwork that the primary school students made. The turtles, fish and other amazing sea creatures were made from plastics that were found near the sea. This highlighted the social issue of littering in Queensland.  </em></p><p><em>The World Science Festival Brisbane was an incredible experience and an amazing opportunity to get involved with the community. I look forward to taking part in the festival for many more years to come. </em>“<br></p><p><br></p></div>

Through simulations, team challenges and leadership based activities, along with many exciting keynote speakers (including a real astronaut!), we developed a better understanding of space, robotics, aerospace science with a heavy focus on leadership. This experience has allowed me to grow as a person and will definitely stay with me for life."</em></p><p>Emma is a Year 12 MacKillop Woman making a world of difference!<br></p><p><br></p>
