Mary MacKillop names school leaders

MARY MacKillop Catholic Regional College students gathered to celebrate the initiation of the school’s leaders for 2016 on Wednesday.

College principal David Leslie said all students have had a stellar start to the new school year.

“The event marked the formal start of the school year which also marks 30 years of Catholic education at Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College,” he said.

“The students have had a terrific start to the year. They are a credit to themselves and to our school.”

Mr Leslie announced the new college captains of the year as Janie Gordon and Kaj Patterson, who will receive help from vice captains Matilda McNeil and Anthony Argento over the course of the year.

“The badges they were presented with will serve as a reminder of the roles of responsibility they have accepted in taking up these positions,” Mr Leslie said.

The dux of 2015, Sarah McCahon, also spoke to students about what it takes to achieve success in Year 12.

“At the end of Year 12 your success is measured by a final score however you must remember that a single score does not define you. Personal achievements made over the course of the year are much more important,” she said.

“It is important to establish a realistic study plan. Your year should not be horrid. Never feel like you are alone.

“Listen to your teachers. They are dedicated and they want to help you. Spend time with friends occasionally away from study and do your best. If you do your best, you will be proud of yourself regardless of your score.”
