Class of 2023 Graduation Dinner
Last Thursday evening we had a wonderful dinner with our Year 12 graduates and families. The night was a wonderful celebration of 13 years of schooling and the transformation from childhood to adulthood shone through in so many ways. Not only did the young men and women look stunning in their formal wear, but the gratitude and respect they showed throughout the evening made me extremely proud to have been a part of the past six years of their lives.
So many staff, including myself, have been commenting on just how many students and parents went out of their way to personally express their thanks for the care, guidance and teaching that has been given to them over the past six years.
It warmed our hearts to see the beautiful human beings who stood before us, who will forever be important members of the MacKillop family.
I would like to thank the team of staff, led by Mrs Tracey Bewicke, Mrs Sam Fletcher, Mrs Jenna O’Brien, Mrs Claire Watts and Mrs Belinda Hadfield who did such an amazing job in organising the Graduation Dinner, setting up the room and making many of the decorations for the evening.
The outgoing Year 12 students of 2023, chose to remember their friend and classmate, Jake Spurdle, in a very special way during the graduation dinner last week. In lieu of individual gifts, Year 12 asked that a donation be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which supported Jake through his journey. A sizable $2000 was donated on behalf of MacKillop College, with a further $290 donated by families during the night. We are incredibly proud of the maturity and love shown by these students.
Thursday 9 November - Port Macquarie police matter: thank you
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to parents for trusting us and following our lock-out procedures last Thursday. The day certainly proved stressful for staff, students and parents. At all times the safety of our students was our priority and where deemed necessary information was shared with students to give them a sense of safety and also to acknowledge they were getting mixed messages from the internet. We were able to let them know we were communicating directly with the police and taking their advice on all procedures, in consultation with the Catholic Schools Office safety team.
Whilst I appreciate from an individual parent perspective picking up your child may seem the safest option, and it can be frustrating to not be permitted entry to the College, or for students to be allowed to leave, our procedures are based on what is safest for a facility with over 1300 people. To safely allow 1300 people off-site is not feasible and hence our policy and procedures exist.
We will always endeavour to give regular updates to families as circumstances change so that you too know as much as possible about the situation and also to avoid 1700 parent calls to the College Office.
We are currently updating our evacuation and lockdown policy and procedures. If you have any feedback please email me.
Once again I thank you for your patience and trust, on what was a tough day for all.
Year 10 End-of-Year Celebrations
Some families have asked what Year 10 does to celebrate the end of their schooling with their peers who are going to Newman College in 2024, and why do they not have a formal evening.
The College provides a beach day for Year 10 in the final week of school to allow the Year 10s to celebrate and have some fun together.
Because schooling is now compulsory until the age of 17 and the great majority of students complete Year 12, a decision was made several years ago that each of the three secondary colleges would only organise one formal Graduation Dinner to celebrate the end of school days. This was partially due to costs, but also to not detract from the significance of the final graduation in Year 12. Whilst I appreciate some people may want an evening event to celebrate the end of Year 10, no parent or student is permitted to organise an event using the MacKillop College name. Any event must be under the name of the person hosting the event.
We look forward to farewelling those students who are moving to Newman in our final assemblies, award ceremonies and the Year 10 Beach Day in the final week of term.
End of Year dates and reminders
A reminder for all parents that the end of the year is a special time for the culture and spirit of MacKillop College. All school days, up until and including Friday 15 December are compulsory. Our Christmas Mass and Awards Ceremonies are very important occasions where we celebrate being a Catholic school community through our Mass and the acknowledgement of the efforts and achievements of students.
I ask that parents not be pressured by their young person into thinking that “no one goes to school on those days.” Our expectation is that all students attend.
Parents are warmly invited to all of our special events in the coming weeks.
Assistant Principal - Pastoral
We warmly invite you to participate in a workshop that will provide tips and strategies to support your parenting at this time and into the future. The workshop will be held at St Joseph's Regional College on Monday, 20 November, 6-7pm. Topics covered:
- Practical parenting tips and strategies
- Sleep, social media and relationships for your teen
- Fostering supportive family-school partnerships
Assistant Principal - Pastoral
Our Year 9 Youth Ministry students have been spending their early Tuesday mornings helping Sr Majorie and the Ecumenical Soup Kitchen team to set up their “Soup Kitchen”.
Our students are working behind the scenes, helping to get things ready for when the Friends who are helped arrive at around 8.30 am.
How can I help my child when they are experiencing anxiety?
Last term I wrote about changing our perspective on anxiety - seeing it, when possible, as a helpful warning instead of something bad all of the time. Whilst this is a good mindset to work towards it doesn’t help when your child is experiencing anxiety. We see anxiety in our young people at school, here are some helpful strategies that we use as teachers that might work for you at home.
Anxiety is often overthinking what has happened or what might be about to happen so one of the most useful things to do is to return the anxious person to the present. One of the most effective techniques that I use is ‘3 things you can see, hear and feel’.
What does that look like? There are many variations of this mindfulness technique but this is the way I use it.
“Tell me three things you can see?”
“The classroom, the tree, my book”
“Tell me three things you can hear?”
“The traffic, the birds, those two girls talking”
“Tell me three things you can feel?”
“My shirt on my back, my legs on the chair, my feet on the ground”
You keep cycling through these questions until the person becomes calmer. This technique helps them return to the current moment in time, not looking forward or back. Often this enables them to be calm enough to have a conversation about what they are anxious about. Any mindfulness technique that you know will have a similar outcome.
There are several other practical things that you can do as well:
- apply an ice pack to the back of the neck;
- go with them for a walk;
- encourage them to hug a pet (depending on the pet of course);
- head to the beach for a swim, surf, walk, sit together;
- seek out friends or family members that you know they are comfortable with;
- encourage them to listen to their favourite music with headphones;
- get out the pencils and draw or colour in while chatting;
- ask them to write down how they are feeling;
- do a gratitude activity;
- take them to sweat it out in the gym; or
- go for a run together (this is never going to be my choice!).
I’m sorry that I can’t say to you, “Do this exact thing and the anxiety will stop”. Anxiety is something we manage by working on our perspective, practising our calming techniques and using the support of loved ones around us. As a person supporting someone with anxiety, the key is to be calm, validating and present - don’t tell them not to worry (they would if they could), try not to be outwardly frustrated (they are trying to get it under control) and understand that no matter how much you want to, you can’t fix it, but you are integral in helping them to manage and live with it.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Leader of Wellbeing - Social and Emotional Support
Over this term, I have visited various classes and seen some fantastic undertakings occur with students engaged in learning. This is a great reminder of the reason why we are all here at MacKillop College. We are all here to learn and make the most out of what is on offer at the College.
As we draw closer to the end of the Year, it’s important that every Year 7 student strives to be the best version of themselves: to establish good working habits; maintain a zest for learning, and collaborate with their classmates.
By putting in consistent effort every day towards every class and each social interaction, they are setting themselves up for the best chance of personal success. Even a 1% increase in effort every day can make a huge difference.
At times, we need reminding that our actions have a direct impact on our learning and the learning of others. I encourage Year 7 to focus on their progress and to continue strong.
I encourage a conversation at home to guide your child to ‘reflect’ on their progress.
- Am I prepared for class?
- Am I ready to learn?
- Do I follow the teacher's instructions?
- What do I contribute to the class?
- Am I impacting my classes in positive or negative ways? How?
- Do I give my best in class?

Year 7 Leader of Pastoral Care
After weeks of preparation and anticipation, Year 8 embraced the opportunities to camp and the experience did not disappoint. The group had a blast with the activities of bushwalking, Learn to Surf - with Port Macquarie Surf School, survivor team building, a Gaol tour, orienteering/rogaining and team building activities. The highlight for me was witnessing Year 8 thrive away from their creature comforts, rising to meet new challenges and truly “finding happiness in making others happy”. It was such a pleasure to be able to share this experience with them.
To parents and carers, thank you for your help in preparing our young people for the week away. You would have been proud to witness their independence, maturity, enthusiasm for activities and kindness to each other.
To the staff who accompanied our Year 8 students, thank you for giving up your time to care for our students whilst away. Your selflessness, energy and joy to guide your group is truly appreciated. Many, many thanks to Alison Montgomery for all of her planning and thoughtfulness to make for an incredible camp, Kylie Smith who assisted in all the excursion preparations and the awesome staff who made these memories possible.
Also to Year 8 students, thank you for being such happy campers. Your respect, cooperation, zest and vitality sustained over four days is a credit to you and made camp a great success for all. I am sure you have many memories to reflect on and will continue to recall these for some time.
Congratulations to the following students who have received a Silver Principal Award: Zachary Bibel, Billy Brockhouse, Scarlet Brooke, Ethan Carey, Elijah Geddes, Quinn Hancock, Ebony Hassett, Dylan Keane, Ava Ribot de Bressac, Jack Robb, Luke Westman, Daniel Zhong.

Year 8 Leader of Pastoral Care
Upon reflection, I’d like to extend a huge thank you to both the staff members who enabled this opportunity to go forward with a special mention to our Leader of HSIE, Nicole Bailey, who meticulously organised such a massive event. Our Year 9 students are also worthy of praise as they engaged with the various activities respectfully and no doubt came away with valuable learning experiences. In addition to this, it was great to see such a large group of young people socialising and bonding in unfamiliar territory.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion, the Australian Government contributed the funding of $45 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program which reduced the overall cost of the excursion for our families. MacKillop students are very grateful for the opportunity to experience our national sites and the sponsorship provided by this wonderful program.
Congratulations to Willis Jensen and Ethan Kelly who have received a Silver Principal’s Award.
Congratulations to the following students who have received a Leader of Pastoral Care Award: Sam Ayton, Abbie Brennan, Ryan Campbell, Lachlan Cheney-Hoy, Meredith Davies, Daisy Duncan, Claire Flynn, Grace Galway, Willis Jensen, Ethan Kelly, Dallas Lacey, India Murray, Savannah Sivell and Jorja Smith.
Year 9 Leader of Pastoral Care
ORGANISATION IS KEY!
Year 10 students are currently navigating a demanding schedule filled with exams, assessments, career appointments, sports, training, work, family events, holidays and more. Managing such a busy agenda can be overwhelming without an effective organisational system in place. Personally, I use various systems to stay on top of my work and personal commitments, including Google Calendar on both my laptop and phone, a day-by-day paper diary and a yearly/term planner on my wall. It's important to note that no single system fits everyone and different individuals may benefit from different systems.
At MacKillop, students have been utilising their college diaries since Year 7. Many students find them particularly effective for recording both school and extracurricular commitments. However, some students rely solely on their memory, which can lead to inevitable lapses. I encourage parents and carers to ask about their child's preferred organisational system and how they manage their busy lives. At a minimum, Year 10 students ought to be using their college diary or even a basic wall calendar to stay organised and manage their commitments.
For additional support, I recommend checking out an informative article that provides valuable resources and tips on coping with exam stress, as well as insights into organising and preparing for assessments.
Congratulations to the following students who have received a Leader of Pastoral Care Award: Sophie Bryant, Isaac Freeman, Benjamin Goldie, Anahata Maple, Memphis-Rayne McCarthy, Rachel Nichols, Ruby Payne, Tobey Pol, Blake Romer, Mia Szumowski, Lochie Tinnock and George Worner.

SENIOR RETREAT – by Harmony Mitchell
A few weeks ago, the whole of Year 11 and I came together to experience our last retreat together. Though half the year went to Bonny Hills and the others to Yarrahapinni campground, this three-day retreat was an experience that exceeded all expectations and gave most of my peers in my year a sense of personal growth and connection involving self-reflection and meaningful interactions with others.
The retreat was full of exciting new activities with everyone experiencing a balance between structured group activities and free time to interact with each other. Each day began with group activities and discussions, setting a positive tone and bringing everyone together.
One of my highlights was the small group team-building challenges at night. Engaging in these challenges brought new relationships and allowed me to interact with people I wouldn’t normally talk to. These challenges required a sense of collaboration and communication that not only strengthened the bonds between the people in my group but also looking around I noticed everyone was so involved and enjoying the time with those around them. One of the other activities included being blindfolded temporarily and someone leading the other person around, which encouraged us to step out of our comfort zones and work together whilst trusting the other person.
The talk and the videos that we listened to brought new perspectives on growing up and an outlook on life in general. Whilst listening to these sessions there were many lifelong lessons that I took away with me including to live in the moment more and enjoy the time, my age and many other things that I’ve got now instead of wishing them all away. This was a great to reflect on and a worthwhile takeaway heading into Year 12.
The sisterhood talk was another one of my highlights that allowed me to see a different side to a lot of people. This session made me realise that certain struggles in my life have also happened to most of the other people in the room whether in the past or currently, showing that we all have more in common than we may believe and that some emotions and things we experience are normal. This gave me a sense of belonging and relatability to the other girls in the room whilst everyone shared their own stories.
I’m sure that this retreat had an impact on everyone who came, but in particular, for Year 11 heading into their final terms of school. It was a transformative experience that left such a lasting impact. I noticed everyone growing so much closer in such a short period, as well as memories and lessons we will take with us well past school.
Plenty of fun was had last week at the Melbourne Cup Dress up Day. The students enjoyed a fashion parade at lunch time and watched the race on the big screen later that afternoon.
Congratulations to the following students who have received a Leader of Pastoral Care Award: Victoria Clapoudis, Shayla Mitchell and Phoebe Spinks.

Berg Shield vs John Paul College Coffs Harbour
The MacKillop College Berg Shield cricket team year 9 and under, defeated John Paul College in the first round of the statewide knockout competition for NSW Catholic Schools. The game was played at Wayne Richards Park on Monday, unfortunately in wet conditions.
John Paul College won the toss and batted first but could only manage 77 runs. Star of the show for MacKillop College was Jack Ryan who finished with the fantastic figures of 7/13 from 4 overs. This included a hat trick (3 wickets in a row) - a rare achievement in cricket. Niall Kitchington and Kale Haese took 1 wicket each and Archie Hawken and Eli O’Bryan bowled well in the wet conditions.
In reply, the MacKillop batsmen reached the target inside 9 overs for the loss of only one wicket. Jack Ryan made it a day to remember, top-scoring with 28. Fellow opener Ben Spencer finished on 22 not out and captain Harley Cottom 21 not out.
The side now plays St Joseph’s College Aberdeen in round 2 of the competition.
David McMahon (Coach)
On Tuesday, November 7, the MacKillop College Downie Shield cricket side took on St. Joseph's Regional. MacKillop College emerged victorious in style, defeating St. Joseph’s Regional College by 204 runs. The standout performer of the day was Brad Jordan, who showcased exceptional skills with an unbeaten century, scoring an impressive 105 not out, earning him the title of Man of the Match. Further mention should be given to Kale Haese scoring 51 and Jack Ryan taking 3/13.
Beyond these remarkable individual performances, the match was characterised by the exemplary sportsmanship displayed by both teams. The boys from MacKillop College and St. Joseph’s Regional College played the game with utmost respect and competitiveness, setting a fine example for sportsmanship. Their positivity throughout the match was truly commendable, reflecting the spirit of cricket. Congratulations to both teams on a memorable and well-contested match.
Thomas Germon (Coach)
All Abilities Netball
MacKillop College recently was lucky enough to be able to attend a 2-hour workshop and drill session for all abilities in netball. Students from MacKillop joined together with students and staff from ASPECT. The coaching and guidance provided during the session was all-inclusive and all students that attended thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The morning began with drills focusing on pivoting and passing techniques. Lots of fun and laughs were had. The session ended with all, including staff participating in a game. I am particularly proud of Makayla Smith and Nate James who took part in all the activities on offer. Nate had this to say about the session “It was action packed and being non-competitive made it lots of fun.”
