A Community Celebration 20 Years In The Making
On Tuesday 8 August, our College K -12, staff old and new as well as our Parish to celebrate both the Feast Day of our namesake, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop’s, and our 20th Anniversary.
MacKillop Catholic College accepted its first Year 7 in 2003. Now 20 years later the College has grown from 13 teachers and 131 students to a school of nearly 1600 with 150 staff. We have seen many changes and we are thrilled to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
The Mass was co-concelebrated by Fr Philip and Fr Brian Moloney, who was the inaugural parish priest. Fr Brian Moloney also recounted the role he played in the development of what we know today as MacKillop Catholic College and St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Parish.
Mrs Ferguson took time to recognise and thank our special guests and founding members of our MCC family, from our inspiring College Principals, passionate Sisters of St Joseph, dedicated Teachers, and Staff. Your mark has been made on the hearts of this community, thank you.
At the conclusion of our Mass. Our special guests took time to share memories and create new ones during a special morning tea. Our students K – 12 moved to the oval and participated in a K – 12 picnic lunch followed by Feast Day activities with their peers.
