Once again, the McKinnon community has united together on Friday 9 September. The Gigs on the Green Market Day was a huge success, with over 20 stalls selling baked goods and hand-crafted items. The McKinnon magic was prevalent.
Our weekly Gigs on the Green performance featured a Year 12 Band, 23rd Street. Their radiant concert along with the sweet treats put everyone in a joyous mood. With the end of term near, this was the perfect time to bring the whole school together. This was a time to relax and unwind from class work, something the Year 12s much appreciated.
This particularly beautiful day, giving us a glimpse into summer, resulted in a huge turnout. Students from all year levels congregated on the deck and grass. Some of the stores sold pancakes, cinnamon scrolls, handmade earrings and cupcakes. Also, I cannot forget the infamous McKinnon sausage sizzle! In addition, there was a raffle, with the opportunity to win a cake!
There were many pleased customers.
Days like these are what makes students excited to come to school. I am sure this day wasn’t an outlier and there will be many more future events to come.

So far during Term 3 life at East Campus has been running smoothly. After a couple of years of missing out on lots of events due to the Pandemic I am sure everyone is happy, including myself, that life is getting back to almost normal.
During Term 3 we have had many events such as the Athletics Carnival and Winter Concert. However, one of the prominent events, Cultural Diversity Week will also be running at the end of Term 3. Cultural Diversity Week is an entire week full of many different cultures throughout the school coming together and teaching people about inclusivity and multiculturalism. Lots of stalls will be set up during this week and people will be selling lots of different products that relate to their culture, such as different types of food from their culture.
Lots of people absolutely love this week and really enjoy buying stuff from the different stalls that are set up and learning about lots of new things from other cultures. Term 3 has been a great term with some rewarding events. Although I am sure everybody is looking forward to the holidays, many people have had some great experiences at school during this term.
