Orientation and Transition Days for New Students


The move to a new school can be a daunting prospect, but none more so than for girls moving from primary to high school. This week we have endeavoured to make this transition easier for our 2020 Year 7 and other new students.​

On Sunday, girls and their families gathered for Orientation Day. This provided families with time to get to know the staff and to seek answers to questions which were pertinent to their daughter commencing at Mary MacKillop College. Esteemed clinical psychologist, Dr Judith Locke, provided parents with insights and strategies for raising teenage girls, while the girls themselves, spent time with their peers getting to know each other.

We were delighted to have the girls join us again for Transition Day on Friday. This day offered the girls the experiences of some of the subjects they will study next year and an opportunity to join in lunchtime activities.
