It was standing room only at a ‘sold out’ Wallaroo Town Hall for St Mary MacKillop School’s recent Whole School Concert ‘Back in My Day’. The original production, written and directed by teacher Courtney Quigley and choreographed by the schools Dance instructor Karen McCulloch took the audience on a nostalgic trip ‘through the decades’.
Students from St Mary MacKillop School, Wallaroo proudly joined with over 46,000 students from 103 Catholic Schools in South Australia to celebrate Catholic Education Week this month. Catholic Education in South Australia continues to provide excellence for every child whose learning and education is entrusted to its care. As this year’s motto – Every Child Matters – suggests, the holistic growth and development of all children in its school is paramount.
On Wednesday 24th August we held our annual 'Dress Up Parade'. Each class had the opportunity to tell the community who they dressed up as, and then show their costume on the catwalk. It was great to see so many parents and friends come to watch the parade.
What an amazing array of science experiments we had for Science Week. The children really enjoyed presenting and watching the experiements and some budding scientists even presented two experements! We had chemical reactions, osmosis, magnetism, floating and sinking, static electricty, density of liquid, how sound travels, just to name a few. They explained natural phenomena such as tornadoes, the water cycle and how our blood thickens. What a relief the future is in good hands with these avid scientists.
St Mary MacKillop is a proud Catholic, Co-Educational, R-7 School founded by the Jospehite sisters in 1869. We invite you to explore our website and come for a personalised tour of our school with Principal James Quigley.
