 Hawks AFL Academy success

We are very proud of the recent success of the Hawks AFL Academy program. On Sunday 29 July, the Senior Girls football team played in the Moore Division finals, versing John Septimus Roe College at Optus Stadium. The final score was; MDC 2.3.15 to JSR 0.0.0. Emily Bennett’s talent was recognised and she received the ‘best player’ award. This follows the recent success of the MDC Senior Boys team who won the 2018 Jackovich Premiership Cup when they defeated Comet Bay (MDC 3.3.21 to CB 1.4.10). These are fantastic achievements and we look forward to seeing your football careers develop.

The Catholic Education Commission of WA (CECWA) - set up by the Archbishop of Perth and the Major Superiors of Teaching Orders - is responsible for the overall co-ordination and development of Catholic education in WA.

All non-government schools are required to be ‘efficient’ as defined in the Education Act of WA.
