Mission Action Day (MAD)

On Wednesday, 21 March students and staff of the College took part in MAD with the annual walk around the Maribyrnong River. The event is a wonderful opportunity for the College to raise awareness for its sister school, St Maria Mazzarello in Venilale Timor-Leste. The sun shone as pencil and paper was left behind and the College, as a collective, walked in unison. All donations raised from the afternoon will go towards facilities and support at St Maria Mazzarello.

Year 7 Camp

On Friday, 9 March our Year 7 cohort returned from their first College camp at Marysville. Perfect weather enabled the students to have three fun-filled action packed days. They participated in exciting challenges such as abseiling, had the opportunity to build new friendships over a campfire, and took time to pause and reflect on their personal journey ahead at Ave Maria. Thank you to those Year 11 peer Support Leaders who attended the camp with their new buddies.
