This week saw the final social for the Year 10 Marist Dancing Lessons. The night was held at Marist Champagnat Centre and was attended by over three hundred students from Marist College, Loreto College and Mt St Michael’s College.
Our students had a wonderful night socialising with their peers and embracing the ‘old style’ dances such as the jive, the gypsy tap and the box waltz. Congratulations to Lauren Adams who was named Mt St Michael’s dancer of the evening.
A big thank you goes to Marist College for co-ordinating and hosting this invaluable opportunity and to the Mt St Michael’s teachers who attended the various dancing lessons and final social.
Our Term 2 CAN ExtravaCANza was a great success with significant funds raised for Downs & West Community Support.
Thank you to all who supported the event.
Elise Condon (Year 7) has been selected in the U13 Brisbane 1 team for the QLD State Hockey Championships at Bundaberg in July 2018.
Elise plays for Norths and is currently playing in the JT1 and JT2 (Junior Turf) grade at Club level – with girls aged from 14 to 17 years old.
Last night five Year 8 students (Georgina O’Keeffe, Annabel Coleman, Mia Miller, Eden Jones and Olivia Drake) played in the Youth Theatresports competition for the very first time. Although our team, the “Theatresports Learner Drivers”, were all nervous, they improvised their way through to the semi-finals.
The coaches, Georgina Devenish-Meares and Clare Ryan supported them all of the way and they couldn’t have been more proud of the youngest team Mt St Michael’s College has ever entered in the competition.
Our Senior team competes next Wednesday evening next at St Margaret’s School and the Year 9 team compete on Monday June 4th at Padua College. We wish all teams the very best.

A class of Year 10 Art students were thrilled to visited GOMA to view an exhibition by globally renowned Australian Contemporary Artist Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection.
The exhibition, filling the entire ground floor of GOMA, included a retrospective of Piccinini’s most recognisable works from the past two decades and an exciting suite of immersive multisensory installations.
Nearly one hundred of our Year 7 students braved a cold Monday night to study our night sky with volunteers from the Brisbane Astronomical Society.
Students viewed planets, stars and galaxies. Some of the best sights included the rings and moons of Jupiter and the Jewel Box Cluster, a group of colourful stars that we see as the brightest “star” in the Southern Cross Constellation. Our moon (photo courtesy of Eliza Devilee) seemed extraordinary through their telescopes.
Students also heard about the Milky Way Galaxy and important constellations such as Orion and Sirius. The Year 7 students thoroughly enjoyed this activity. Huge thanks to Ms Goodin for organisation, other Year 7 Teachers for attending, and the Brisbane Astronomical Society for their time and telescopes.
Our top Netball team in each age group competed in the Queensland Catholic Cup Netball Carnival held at Coorparoo on Tuesday May 22.
All teams played with great enthusiasm and represented the school extremely well all day. While our Open and Intermediate teams both placed fourth in their divisions, our Junior girls placed first in their division.
A huge thank you to our dedicated coaches Kirsty Boddington, Vicki Buchanan and Jade Madden and also to our referees for the day Savannah, Amelia and Olivia.
