Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

Tomorrow we have our final Kinder Transition Day as well an opportunity for students joining us in other grades next year to experience a day at SMMC. I’m sure we will make them all very welcome.


Well done to Thomas Burton who is our School Rules Hot Chips Winner for this week!


Our Year 12 Students recently took delivery of their jumpers, which gave them much joy! Here’s the wonderful group sporting their new attire.


Jindera Carols

SMMC students are invited to attend the Jindera Carols on Friday 16th December at 7:30pm. BBQ from 6.30pm. Please put this date in the diary if you haven’t got any prior commitments. The students will sing two Christmas Carols and some students will be part of a nativity scene. If you are able to assist with the coordination of this event and/or be a point of contact on the night please let me know. This is a great opportunity to represent our school in the local community. I hope we can get lots of students there. Thank you!


Parent Survey

This morning you should have received an email with a link to a survey. This is an opportunity for you to provide feedback on Saint Mary MacKillop College for 2016. The Church calls for Catholic Schools to have close collaboration with parents and work together in partnership for your children’s benefit, so I encourage you to take the time (it won’t take long) to fill in the anonymous survey. Thank you in advance!

SMMC Presentation Night

Don’t forget our presentation night beginning at 7pm next Tuesday 6th December. We look forward to recognising the achievements of all our students on the night. Please bring a plate to share for supper afterwards. Students to wear their school uniforms please.


First Communion

Congratulations to Gabrielle Byrnes, Robert Green, Rose Woods, Dennis Stewart and Celine Chandrasegaran on receiving Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time on the feast of Christ the King. What a beautiful Sacrament they have received!


Book Fair

Tomorrow after Mass, Cardinal Newman Faith Resources will be in the Library at SMMC with lots of books for you to peruse and purchase. Come along and get some early Christmas presents!


I hope your family has managed to make a good start to the season of Advent. Here are two more advent prophecies to reflect on across this week.

God Bless,

Luke Burton
