Voice of Youth

The Year 6 children are involved in the Parramatta Diocesan Voice of Youth contest. This is a public speaking contest for Year 6 students throughout the Diocese. The Penrith Cluster Final is held at Holy Family School, Luddenham, in Term 3. The children from Year 6 attend to support their Mary MacKillop peers and listen to other speakers in this cluster.

School Camp

Year 5 attend a school camp. The Teen Ranch Christian Camp at Cobbity offers a two night/ three day stay which allows students to form and develop friendship groups and further develop leadership skills.

Children in Year 6 attend an excursion to Canberra in order to enhance their studies in Human Society and Its Environment. During their visit the main focus is the study of Federal Government. They visit Parliament House where the children visit both houses of parliament and the Parliamentary Education Centre. They also visit the Electoral Education Centre, which is highly useful in developing the students’ understandings of Federal Government—particularly in how preferential voting works.

Other planned visits include the Australian War Memorial, the Australian Institute of Sport, the High Court, the National Gallery and the National Museum.

Movie Team

The Mary MacKillop Movie Team is made up of Year 5 students learning the skills involved in film-making.
