GRADE 5 students visited Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College on Wednesday to experience a day of school at the Leongatha college.
College Year 7 and 8 coordinator Tara Cox welcomed 163 pupils from 19 primary schools to discovery day.
“Each year Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College looks forward to welcoming the Year 5 students for an opportunity to explore and discover what Mary MacKillop College has to offer,” Ms Cox, who organised the event, said.
Students spent the day visiting different areas of the college, guided by teachers and pupils of the college.
The visitors participated in music and home economics lessons, and science classes where they created “magic milk” using food dye and detergent, used microscopes and tried to skewer balloons without popping them.
Mary MacKillop College principal Michael Delaney said discovery day is part of the college’s program to familiarise young students with the school.
“From the students’ perspective, there is a coordinated program of activities that introduces them to the college over a couple of years,” he said.
“By participating in this program, students not only become familiar with the facilities and layout of the college, they also begin to meet students from the other schools that feed into Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College.”
After engaging in a number of sports the day concluded with a family barbecue and a student and parent information session.
