Navigating Year 7: College Life Passports16/05/2022
Last week saw our Year 7s attend their first Year Level Assembly for the term. The theme was celebrating student success from Term 1 and to introduce what they could be involved in throughout Term 2. We had twelve students complete all twenty activities on the Term 1 passport. Congratulations to the students below who won themselves a canteen voucher. We have now launched our Term 2 College Life Passport and encourage all students in Year 7 to immerse themselves in the wide range of activities on offer.

During Week 2, the Year 7 students welcomed Grade 6 students into the College for our ‘Discover CMC’ sessions. We had a number of our Year 7 students who took the time to share their transition experience and talk about daily life at Catherine McAuley College. The students guided the Grade 6 students on tours and participated in various activities. They were outstanding ambassadors for our College and community.
NAPLAN tests were conducted during Week 3. All of the Year 7 students approached these tests with maturity and demonstrated positive learning behaviours. Well done to all of the students for their efforts. Catch up tests will be available for the students who missed tests during Week 4.
