The 2019 academic year has
seen dynamic and exciting learning taking place across the college. Students
have been deeply engaged in rich curriculum opportunities that develop core
skills and transfer these into meaningful understandings. Our clear focus on enhancing student literacy
has involved teachers collaborating regularly around engaging lesson
preparation for our young people. Student literacy has enhanced as a result and
this will support their learning across all subject areas.
College resources continue to
improve. Our current building project will conclude during Term Two delivering
us with state-of-the art Science laboratories, learning spaces and a cafeteria
that will form a central celebration space within the college. program Our one
to one Macbook program has facilitated learning, collaboration and organisation
for our young women and men.
Co-curricular activities have
coloured our Wednesday afternoon program with students training in earnest for
the SECA (South East Colleges Association) interschool sporting competition.
SECA Northside commenced this year and our students are well prepared for the
competitive opportunities this association provides.
Our Marist Charism flavours
all that we do and offers a rich way to meaningfully connect the young people
in our care to deeper understandings about the world. Our students have been
heavily involved in outreach programs such as The Breakfast Club where they
serve those in need within the broader community.
To prospective parents,
please access the many opportunities that are available to engage with us to
understand how we can support your son or daughter in this caring environment.
To our current parents, as partners in the learning journey of our young
people, I look forward to continuing to work with you as your son or daughter
flourishes at Mt Maria College, Petrie.
