Her Journey Begins
Kildare College has had the wonderful opportunity to welcome Year 6 students on their very own Orientation Day for Year 7 2023. This day consisted of lots of active and fun activities in our Art room, Tullow Centre STEM classroom, Dance Studio, Gym, Resource Centre and out and about in our College grounds as well.
Before the students’ arrival, our College was abuzz with so many of their older friends, sisters and of course our Student Leaders getting ready for their day at Kildare College.
The activities throughout the day allowed opportunities for new friendships to be created, connections across year levels to be established and wonderful relationships between teachers and students to be formed, as well as our families who stayed on for morning coffee with our College Principal, Tina Neate and Deputy Principal, Michelle Camilleri.
At the end of our Orientation Day, there were so many smiles and much reassurance that the journey each and every girl has started at Kildare College will be supported and nurtured by a caring community they are now an integral part of.
We all look forward to their Transition Day in Term 4, when a whole new assortment of activities awaits them, new or existing friendships will be nurtured, along with so many of our student leaders who will be interacting with our 2023 Year 7 students on this day.
Solve…Solving…Solved! Year 7 World of Maths
On Friday the 16 September our Year 7 cohort attended workshops run by the World of Maths. The workshops consisted of 17 interactive activities that covered key aspects of Mathematics, including number, space and measurement. These core concepts were explored through the use of real-life examples with an emphasis on problem solving skills. The workshops were a worthwhile experience for our Year 7 students, giving them an insight on how mathematics can be used authentically beyond the classroom and how the content we learn in class has its place in the world around us.

Year 12 Indigenous Celebrations
Tara Hammer and Khyleesha Welgraven and their families, were part of a very special gathering at Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute to acknowledge Year 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who have completed their schooling in Catholic Education.
Ngarrindjeri/Kaurna elder, Uncle Major (Moogy) Sumner welcomed everyone to country and wished all the Year 12 students well on their journey after school. Each student was presented with their Year 12 Certificate of Completion and a beautiful piece of artwork created by Aboriginal artist Mali Isobel.
It was a very special event, especially as Khyleesha was the guest speaker at the presentation and both students have been such wonderful role models during their time at Kildare College.
