LitLinks Competition Winner

Posted on 08 Nov 2018

Congratulations Kassandra !!  LitLinks Winner 2018! MCSS is so proud!

We have just received advance notice that Kassandra Stewart in Year 12 at our Copland campus has won one of the four major prizes in the LitLinks competition for ACT in 2018!

Kassie’s piece, titled A Nice Sandwich, is a clever homage to the writing style of George Orwell. Her essay outlines the rules for sandwich making – as “one of the mainstays of civilisation” - in clean, clear and direct language, with the journalistic voice of Orwell resonating through her work. Her work will be published in an anthology, and she will receive a pass to the Canberra Writers’ Festival in 2019.

Litlinks is a creative writing competition open to all ACT school students in Years 7-12.  It was established in 2008 in cooperation with Paperchain Bookstore, Manuka, who is the sponsor again in 2018.

College Girls Complete Badminton Double!

For the 2nd year running, the MCSS College Girls Badminton team have been crowned ACT College Champions!

Off the back of the 2017 victory, there was only one change to the team of 6, with Naomi Kendall coming in to join Tram Nguyen, Cindy Nguyen, Sophie Nguyen, Kasey Nguyen and Amy Jian. 

The girls did not lose a match the entire day, going through the group phase undefeated, before taking on Gungahlin College in the final, comprehensively winning 8-1.

Congratulations to the girls on a fantastic effort. Hopefully MCSS can complete the treble in 2019.
