Principal's Blog

Each week, our Principal shares his reflections on learning in this Catholic community.




The Magdalene Parents and Friends Association would like to extend an invitation to our current and incoming families to be part of a new initiative aimed at strengthening community partnerships and supporting local business.

The Magdalene Community Business Directory will provide an opportunity to advertise your business, free of charge, to families and staff at Magdalene through a digital directory linked to our Parents and Friends portal on the school website.

We would love to hear from interested Magdalene families who would like to promote their products and services to the local community and encourage our wider Magdalene community to consider supporting these businesses where possible.

Inclusion in the Business Directory is voluntary, completely free of charge and open to all families with students attending the school. To list your business with us, please make initial contact with Michelle Cornett through our Parents and Friends email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We look forward to your support of this initiative and will work hard to get the Directory up and running for the start of the 2018 school year.

Best wishes for a happy, safe and holy Christmas and New Year break from the Magdalene P&F.


20 Year Celebration Dinner

As 2017 draws to a close, as a school we celebrate another significant year of academic, sporting and cultural successes. We also acknowledge a year of spiritual formation and connection through the joys and sorrows that we experience as a community.

When we resume our school year in 2018, it heralds a significant milestone for our community, 20 years of quality Catholic education.

Magdalene intend to celebrate this important year in our journey through a series of events that will both honour our history and display our optimism for the future.

The premier event in our calendar of celebrations will be our Gala Dinner to take place on the 18th May, 2018 at The Cube Function Centre at the Campbelltown Catholic Club.

This exciting event will provide an opportunity for past and present members of our school community to honour 20 years of service to the students, staff and families who have formed the fabric of Magdalene Catholic High School.

Over the Christmas and New Year break, we are requesting your assistance to begin to build the excitement of the coming celebrations. Not only do we ask you to 'save the date' of the Gala Dinner, we are hoping to make contact with as many Magdalene alumni as possible, to hear your stories, gather memorabilia and really connect as a community as we move into this significant year.

To register your interest, make contact to share your history or help us find some of our founding staff and students please email Michelle Cornett at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will begin to form social media contact pages in 2018 and will keep you informed of the wonderful events that we have planned to Celebrate 20 Years of Magdalene. Looking forward to your support, Michelle Cornett The 20 Years Committee
