The night was a huge success and a fantastic way to celebrate the end of the year with a bang. <br /><br />The guest speaker for the event was Anthony Breslin, who has also been facilitating the Year 9 Mural Project at the East Campus. His ongoing collaboration with ܽƵapp has allowed us to provide meaningful opportunities for our students to witness professional artmaking. <br /><br />Anthony was also asked to select a Guest Speaker award on the night; one artwork which he felt was outstanding and demonstrated creativity and high technical competence. I am excited to announce that the recipient for this award is<b><i> Jackson Robenn</i></b>&nbsp;for his Cubist inspired artwork completed in Year 9 Sculpture. Congratulations to Jackson for this achievement! <br /><br />I would also like to congratulate all of our award winners in Years 7, 8 and 9! Congratulations as well to all exhibiting students whose work was on display! The quality of work presented this year, as always impressed all. We, as a teaching team are so lucky to be able to teach and work with so many talented young artists! <br /><br />As always thank you to all the staff and students who have worked tirelessly to make both our Art Shows successful. Thank you to the East Campus Visual Arts team Emma Butler, Maria Garcia, Tracy Griffith and Lynton Perry, as well as our Year 7 teachers Rebecca Johnson, Raphaella Roden, Jessica Rogosic and Katherine Sip. <br /><br />We still have one project to look forward to this year; the completion of the Year 9 Mural which will be installed in the near future. Keep an eye out for news regarding the installation of this artwork! <br /><br /><b><i>Peter Eglezos <br />Learning Area Manager for the Visual Arts</i></b>&nbsp;<div><br /> Check out our photo gallery:<br /> <br /> <iframe frameborder="0" height="600" src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=18R9Y9eGc8iuugDdN2eeaBXRql8_WMbKp#grid" width="800"></iframe> </div>McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-89345780475370254372023-11-30T21:05:00.005+11:002023-11-30T21:05:53.943+11:00Connor Scott (Class of 2013) - 50km for 50 days! <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEjVezOjWlLhKD7po1u-vUzWmkAGiCAdkmA8bG13rq2rL0z_RYXNfEkejnCQb78X7VvKlBfv9JZH3PQuFPlsTl0TbDt_0y8JQJcHVzbbFBtO890H_EfyiI_sWM7S2M5t1qh-3gm8btFPwzZAfUs4G7OSM5IGso5mk1k2K_Jq_SxKoeSOdplc0d0f5XIQuUM/s512/unnamed-7.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="371" data-original-width="512" height="232" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEjVezOjWlLhKD7po1u-vUzWmkAGiCAdkmA8bG13rq2rL0z_RYXNfEkejnCQb78X7VvKlBfv9JZH3PQuFPlsTl0TbDt_0y8JQJcHVzbbFBtO890H_EfyiI_sWM7S2M5t1qh-3gm8btFPwzZAfUs4G7OSM5IGso5mk1k2K_Jq_SxKoeSOdplc0d0f5XIQuUM/s320/unnamed-7.png" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div>Connor Scott (Class of 2013) - 50km for 50 days!

Through their preventative proactive approach, they facilitate school, corporate and sporting club programs, as well as local events to connect the community and raise awareness to positively impact mental health awareness.</div><div><br />Connor’s extraordinary act of endurance and resilience comes on the back of his passion for empowering others, especially youth, to speak up about their mental health.</div><div><br />He is wanting to raise $50,000 for Speak &amp; Share, to provide 2500 kids with the opportunity to learn about how speaking up, and showing vulnerability is in fact an act of courage, and not a weakness.<br />The McKinnon community are following along and supporting Connor on this journey.

Known for his eclectic and evocative style, he spoke to our students about an exciting upcoming project. &nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">As our first 2-year graduating cohort of East Campus, during their final weeks on campus, our students will be mentored by Anthony as artist-in-residence with our own Art team, to create a large-scale art mural next to the East Campus outdoor basketball courts. &nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Inspired playfully by the notion of Wisdom and Service, a visual narrative incorporating Anthony’s iconic characters such as bugs, flowers and hearts will be created from 3D canvases of various sizes for the students to personalise. The finished piece will see these works applied over the exterior wall, coming together in a captivating scene to reflect McKinnon’s creative voices and aspirations. We are incredibly proud of our students and the Year 9s will be remembered for years to come as the first students to experience two years at East Campus.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">I would like to thank Anthony Breslin and his team for creating this special opportunity for our Year 9 students. I’d also like to thank Peter Quinn, our Facilities team, Peter Eglezos and our Art team, as well as our Year 9 Student Managers, particularly Melinda Howard for facilitating this project during a busy time.

Presented by ܽƵapp. <br /><br />It has been estimated that of the world’s 8 billion people, a record-breaking 1.4 billion, or 18 percent, are currently grandparents. In 2018, Australian grandparents clocked up an average of 58 childcare hours per month, worth $3.94 billion annually.<br /><br />Grandparents make a significant contribution to Australian families, but many new grandparents can feel deficient and unsupported in their role and are unsure how to approach it.<br /><br />This talk explores the 20 most important rules for every stage of the grandparenting journey from one of Australia’s most respected child and adolescent psychologists. This event is an opportunity to celebrate the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.<br /><br />Please RSVP by clicking the following link: <a href="https://www.trybooking.com/CNFZP"><b>https://www.trybooking.com/CNFZP</b></a>&nbsp;to ensure your spot at this event or scan the QR code to access your FREE ticket.<div><br /></div><div><b>WHEN:</b>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tuesday 5th December</div><div><b>TIME:</b>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 7pm - 8pm</div><div><b>LOCATION:</b> ܽƵapp, McKinnon Road Campus assembly hall<br /><div><br /><div><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhHUy7SUT3i0bS9FFZ4X3qRl05s382iLzU6FNOfoaww-FuFkubEVv-Hljx9qH3loOq2mGNf7T6Jn6Rb1e4RBiDoQPIjFsd3V88nLl-nnAUS4wlnVeZPdhuDzL08UpciOafswWjJaQWTu5dEntLcgptTbFMTV0LBeCJVzvUgPi21D9-ECiGDnMF96QhU98A/s2000/TheGrandparentingCodeFinal.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1414" data-original-width="2000" height="283" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhHUy7SUT3i0bS9FFZ4X3qRl05s382iLzU6FNOfoaww-FuFkubEVv-Hljx9qH3loOq2mGNf7T6Jn6Rb1e4RBiDoQPIjFsd3V88nLl-nnAUS4wlnVeZPdhuDzL08UpciOafswWjJaQWTu5dEntLcgptTbFMTV0LBeCJVzvUgPi21D9-ECiGDnMF96QhU98A/w400-h283/TheGrandparentingCodeFinal.png" width="400" /></a></div><br /><div><br /></div></div></div>McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-63462804052735102492023-11-09T15:35:00.004+11:002023-11-09T15:35:37.879+11:00ܽƵapp - Issue 17<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEgiDm_wn1IcF7afj-4PirUYDv104BecWMZAESMejxq1Lrug-Z83doIHr5lMXgSxVudSxa3C-sAl0wZvN0yYZhqoGVRepJNsa5k9qvhG86g2ZbbhbnY5m8Ym4uxS1_21LsyMqIA1m_RR48W7pA3wdP7WHIaEuH3fHJFVYeYH3RkKK397DPtbn00bwlAWmG8/s1080/McKinnon%20NEWS.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1080" data-original-width="1080" height="320" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEgiDm_wn1IcF7afj-4PirUYDv104BecWMZAESMejxq1Lrug-Z83doIHr5lMXgSxVudSxa3C-sAl0wZvN0yYZhqoGVRepJNsa5k9qvhG86g2ZbbhbnY5m8Ym4uxS1_21LsyMqIA1m_RR48W7pA3wdP7WHIaEuH3fHJFVYeYH3RkKK397DPtbn00bwlAWmG8/s320/McKinnon%20NEWS.png" width="320" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Read the latest issue of ܽƵapp&nbsp;<a href="https://newsletters.naavi.com/i/O5gqXZJ">here!</a></div><br /> <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://newsletters.naavi.com/i/O5gqXZJ" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1512" data-original-width="1744" height="346" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEgu0luhembOWjpRyNa5mp429P3kFmnyE27tcNTTG5j4JtyDaN1be35X_ZRhFA3LTkROyLvhMg79utU3CKWmVw0mAP4V2SMQ68i24NQXf_9eOAZljQMitRl0LQ0nHP0fXPWlbkCN9eLGsnjFlgsfEvwoTvqflY50snShFa3SN2GwZZWmr8ts9DyEGwlvxrQ/w400-h346/Screen%20Shot%202023-11-09%20at%203.34.19%20pm.png" width="400" /></a></div><br />McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-3934337775206090682023-11-01T17:06:00.009+11:002023-11-01T17:06:54.106+11:00Year 7 and Year 8 Cricket Success<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEit6faEvBxtCJc9ZeQhtjLnUSaAPsTwPDRZzuqJFDs6T8rrzdrT7tNSKZ-CpevQWN3iFldzFHqJAXjKFzc__fnM-qPSnvgV-AxssWg-u9opLLBlKxE5aZZHkWTzyNbV2fNVeFDToOZT7dmMmelpT9YOeh1gf_U4XWYPgQ1fJUW0TS2A9OQq0IZKPMCLy_g/s2662/image_50726913.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="2662" data-original-width="2662" height="320" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEit6faEvBxtCJc9ZeQhtjLnUSaAPsTwPDRZzuqJFDs6T8rrzdrT7tNSKZ-CpevQWN3iFldzFHqJAXjKFzc__fnM-qPSnvgV-AxssWg-u9opLLBlKxE5aZZHkWTzyNbV2fNVeFDToOZT7dmMmelpT9YOeh1gf_U4XWYPgQ1fJUW0TS2A9OQq0IZKPMCLy_g/s320/image_50726913.JPG" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The Year 7 cricket team were set to repeat the current Year 8's work from last year and become the SMR Champions for 2023.

So many celebrations which mark an incredible milestone for our Year 12 students. <br /><br />Valedictory is such a heartwarming event, and it was lovely to see the parents attending, who are always so grateful to our teachers and our school. As we know, this connection with families is one of the secrets to the success of McKinnon. <br /><br />I congratulate everyone who helped to organise these events and all the staff who were in attendance to support our Class of 2023. <br /><br /><b><i>Michael Kan <br />Principal</i></b><br /> <br /> Check out our photo gallery:<br /> <br /> <iframe frameborder="0" height="600" src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=1Z4LXN9HucmiCrkYdFmehdTodQGPwArrH#grid" width="800"></iframe> McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-17688216912081361092023-10-10T21:43:00.004+11:002023-10-10T21:45:53.543+11:00Year 12 Dress Up Day 2023<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhZYXrAKb1dYuTnuXfosaaPb6C434wwzzkdzC4WncVJ-ZK3ma6-m_BACzGMLEljo4Si3HBJw4pAdU5y84bz3W4ekVQQwPS0-pVglvTIZ3hQMWdB3JSYVBYF-74VNkEr3bivHOicJVUy1MBlPTyjL1_lkkIBZRbxt_Y8uxMBr_tdWF3PZTLNNohCvE6yP10/s6000/051A3442.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="4000" data-original-width="6000" height="213" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhZYXrAKb1dYuTnuXfosaaPb6C434wwzzkdzC4WncVJ-ZK3ma6-m_BACzGMLEljo4Si3HBJw4pAdU5y84bz3W4ekVQQwPS0-pVglvTIZ3hQMWdB3JSYVBYF-74VNkEr3bivHOicJVUy1MBlPTyjL1_lkkIBZRbxt_Y8uxMBr_tdWF3PZTLNNohCvE6yP10/s320/051A3442.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">On Tuesday 10th October our Class of 2023 added a splash of colour to the school with the annual Year 12 Dress-up day.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The costumes were outstanding and created a memorable highlight for the students in their final week of classes.</div> <br /> Check out our photo gallery:<br /> <br /> <iframe frameborder="0" height="600" src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=1shptWuFJkHkhIbrvAbSOVrtm39GMqJhH#grid" width="800"></iframe> McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-41838818655532145242023-09-28T12:50:00.001+10:002023-09-28T12:50:54.774+10:00Guest Physics Speaker: Misha Machlak (Class of 2015)<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEi-4zl6vOhacZAwbv9zxT-I1bltrAFajHbGYW7cbCL2z8oOX-10OSZWWsik7gdxrNu-5aG5wIPetRgYf02nov3NNDGK3_FE31WKfOBrW166jDRUIo0sz0uBZYH3xJTXgkjmuelABihZAy6krNfJmdV7mvDMreziopg8I61vdThuQLbHWwpKMfJWS1OCu40/s6000/051A0952.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="4000" data-original-width="6000" height="213" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEi-4zl6vOhacZAwbv9zxT-I1bltrAFajHbGYW7cbCL2z8oOX-10OSZWWsik7gdxrNu-5aG5wIPetRgYf02nov3NNDGK3_FE31WKfOBrW166jDRUIo0sz0uBZYH3xJTXgkjmuelABihZAy6krNfJmdV7mvDMreziopg8I61vdThuQLbHWwpKMfJWS1OCu40/s320/051A0952.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div>Former McKinnon student Misha Machlak of the graduating class of 2015 was generous enough to speak to current year 10 and 11 Physics students about his experience working for the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM).&nbsp;<div><br /></div><div>His presentation in the school theatre contained valuable insights about the Science of modelling and predicting the weather, but also into post-high school study and employment opportunities related to the students' studies.

They visited Portsea Camp, and they had an amazing time there. The youngsters had a great time participating in every activity. The Portsea camp's educators and staff were friendly and fed Mckinnon students the tastiest meals ever!There were nighttime activities that we really enjoyed. They were a movie night and a trivia night.<br /><br />The dorms were great to hang out with our friends and the ocean views were lovely. We had the opportunity to visit the beach, have a stroll along the shore, and take in the fresh sea air! There were so many enjoyable things to do there for us to pass the time. I loved the year 10’s camp this year because it left everyone completely stunned. We had the loveliest memories from the Portsea camp, and all of the students are extremely grateful for the chance we were given. <br /></i><br /><b><i>By Mia Le</i></b><div><b><i>Year 10</i></b></div><div><br /> Check out our photo gallery:<br /> <br /> <iframe frameborder="0" height="600" src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=19PkEl4sUhWkNTrVNO38lwJJqjcA82dpQ#grid" width="800"></iframe> </div>McKinnon SChttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02927787866788452774noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2032115987263572446.post-52778592860823608552023-07-13T09:39:00.002+10:002023-07-13T09:42:19.564+10:00Year 12 Trivia Night<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> </div> <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEjkg0X0rE6cCysey6w8TV9yMHMa2STq_N9KbAOHTkkMrp9OGlWEV-j1kEN8XYk_DjZ1GhWoCpibLJo7k9kAclBuSBmmhYDSxYUZGJOxVwn72mTP3p1qVVqCzxb2D-aiynkBQlgkEp2j-3Id1t6gyV28dIF2vXAX55HfdjJi7bc85ETuKnM3nI5BaAuUGyM/s5184/12%20-%2020230616%20-%20AL6Q6773.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="3456" data-original-width="5184" height="213" src="https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEjkg0X0rE6cCysey6w8TV9yMHMa2STq_N9KbAOHTkkMrp9OGlWEV-j1kEN8XYk_DjZ1GhWoCpibLJo7k9kAclBuSBmmhYDSxYUZGJOxVwn72mTP3p1qVVqCzxb2D-aiynkBQlgkEp2j-3Id1t6gyV28dIF2vXAX55HfdjJi7bc85ETuKnM3nI5BaAuUGyM/s320/12%20-%2020230616%20-%20AL6Q6773.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Last term, we hosted the highly anticipated fourth Annual Year 12 Trivia Night, and it was a night to remember.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">One of the highlights of the evening was the 'dance battle,' which showcased the talent and fun of our students.
