Things Are Changing Note

Hi Parents,

The following note was sent home with your child today.

23rd November, 2018
Dear Year Six Parents,
Re: Health and next Religious Education Unit to be explored in Year Six Term 4
The basic purpose for which God created the human body is so that human beings can express the love and the goodness within them. Sexuality is the distinctive ways males and females express love and goodness through their thoughts, feelings, bodies and relationships.
The next Religious Education unit begins by exploring the Catholic understanding of sexuality. It focuses in particular upon the special way husband and wives express their sexuality in the Sacrament of Marriage.
The unit introduces to the children ways in which Jesus always expresses love and goodness through his body. It then presents how he makes his followers ‘new creatures’ through Baptism so that they can do the same. The Rite of Baptism and symbols used during the Baptismal ceremony will also be explored.
Finally, the unit explores way…

Term 4, Week 7

Hi Parents,
Sorry for the delay in blog posts. I hope everyone had a great weekend! A bit of good news: I recently became an uncle for the sixth time. My brother welcomed little Matilda in to the world and all is well.
Quote of the Week:

Mary MacKillop Orientation Day:
Students attending Mary MacKillop next year will be spending Thursday at the college. I know some kids are catching the bus with their older siblings or peers. This is a great opportunity for the kids to show a little independence and responsibility. If you’re planning on dropping your child off, it might be an idea to get in contact with some other parents to organise a group of them to catch the bus together. Best of luck to both students and parents!
There have been a number of students arriving at school with uncharged iPads. It is really difficult to charge more than one iPad at a time, so if your child’s iPad is flat, they may be restricted in what they can do for the day. Please remind your child to take respons…

Mary Mackillop Testing

Hi Parents,

Just a reminder that the Year 6 students attending Mary MacKillop next year will be attending a testing morning this Friday. All Year Six students should be wearing their school sports uniform as per usual.

We will be picked up at 10am and arrive back at school at 12:45pm.

3 students haven't given me their signed permission slips. If your child asks you for it, can you please hand write a note that says:

'I give my child _________________________ permission to attend the Year 7 2019 testing day on

Friday 9th November 2018.

Thank you,

Mr Jones

Mini Vinnies

Hi Parents,

For the month of November, Mrs Derricks walks a handful of Year 6 students to the church to help with any cleaning that is needed. This will occur every Wednesday between recess and lunch. The plan is to give each student the opportunity to volunteer their time to help out the local community.

Please let me know if you did not want your child to participate during this time.

Kind regards,

Mr Jones

Confirmation Home Mass Reminder

Hi Parents,

Just a few things regarding the Confirmation Home Mass this Tuesday.

All Year Six students are strongly encouraged to attend.

The Martin's home address: 20 Wylarah Way, Quindalup

Please be there before 5:30pm for a prompt start. 

Boys are bringing a plate of something savoury and girls are bringing a plate of something sweet. If your plate requires heating on the night can I suggest that you arrive a little earlier and bring it on a dish that can go straight into the oven.

I have told the kids to BYO plates, cups, serviettes and cutlery. This will help our environment and help the Martin Family with any washing up.

BYO drinks. Please be aware that this is an alcohol free event.

The Mass will take place on a grassed area. You might like to bring a picnic rug and/or some camping chairs. 

Thank you, look forward to seeing you all there!

Mr Jones

Mary MacKillop College General Ability Testing Morning: A letter has been sent home today regarding the Test that all prospective Mary MacKillop Students sit. The purpose of the test is to give the school an idea of where your child’s ability sits with the rest of the students so they can be placed in classes that suit their learning n…
