I resolve to
Change the world
These words were emblazoned across the screen at this week's High Resolves Videos for Change national summit at the Sydney Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. And Mary MacKillop College was there! Two of our Year 10 MacKillop Women were amongst the ten national finalists – Anjali Reddy and Dublin Rose. Their videos featured front and centre.

At the Summit, Anjali was awarded an ongoing mentorship with filmmaker and entrepreneur, Briony Benjamin, (https://www.brionybenjamin.com.au/) who currently works as the Executive Producer of Video for Mamamia (https://www.mamamia.com.au/author/briony-benjamin/), creates video content for organisations such as The World Wildlife Fund, Getup, The Climate Council and The Sum of Us, generating millions of views on some of the most complex issues facing our world, and has also worked as a director for ABC2.
These film makers of Mary MacKillop College are developing their art, to create video that moves us, to enter into real world stories of contemporary social issues and, in so doing, move us to change our hearts, our minds and our world. Their teachers are MacKillop educators extraordinaire, fearlessly committed to educating a whole new generation of women who, like St Mary MacKillop herself, think, work and act to expose injustice and create justice. Congratulations Mrs Karyn Chapman, media teacher of Anjali and Dublin, and all of our teachers who teach with this moral purpose in mind.
