College Mantra Inspires Student to Set Sights Highhttp://www.mtmaria.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/News-article-two.aspxCollege Mantra Inspires Student to Set Sights High<p> <img class="ms-rtePosition-1 ms-rteImage-2" alt="Mackenzie-Bond-207x300.jpg" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Pages/News-article-two/Mackenzie-Bond-207x300.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> <strong>Mt Maria College, Mitchelton, 2017 Year 12 student Mackenzie Bond, demonstrated the college motto of ‘Strong Mind, Compassionate Heart’ through her active participation in school, charity, and community-engagement events.</strong></p><p>College Principal Mr Glenn McConville said that the college motto is about balance between giving one’s best to study and giving one’s best to community – and one for all students to aspire to. </p><p>“All students at Mt Maria are encouraged to develop their own strong mind and their own compassionate heart and to use both for the good of others,” Mr McConville said.</p><p>Since starting at Mt Maria in Year 8, Mackenzie worked to find her own balance of study and community involvement and has made significant contributions to both.</p><p>She has worked with various organisations including Rosies Friends on the Street, Enoggera Lions Club, and Caritas Australia. Her involvement with the community was acknowledged and celebrated when she was awarded the Young Achiever of the Year for 2017 in the Dayboro Community Awards.  </p><p> <br> </p><p> <img class="ms-rtePosition-1 ms-rteImage-2" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Pages/News-article-two/3-1-225x300.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:207px;" />A Dayboro local, Mackenzie has a personal connection with the Dayboro War Memorial Association. A direct family relation was one of 15 Diggers from the local area who did not return home from WWI. Mackenzie wrote the foreword for a book published by the association commemorating the centenary of WWI; a copy of which she delivered to the Australian Sector of the Flanders Fields War Museum when she visited there on a school trip. Mackenzie also delivered an opening speech at the Dayboro Anzac Day Ceremony in 2017.</p><p>Mackenzie was the 2017 college’s Social Justice Captain, was part of the college’s vocal ensemble, and participated in youth speaking and writing competitions. Through various school awards, she has been recognised for her public speaking skills, leadership and teamwork capabilities, and for demonstrating Marist values of compassion, humility and service.</p><p>Mackenzie’s mother, Mrs Corinne Bond said that Mackenzie has a good grasp of the ethos of the school with a balance of instinctive intelligence and practical common sense.</p><p>“She has really grasped the ethos of the school in strong mind, compassionate heart – it’s her to a T. The school has helped nurture and grow her into the person she is today,” Mrs Bond said.</p><p>Having achieved many impressive achievements to date, Mackenzie continues to set her sights high as she aspires to become a veterinarian and attend the Emerald Agricultural College. Her dream is to launch a veterinarian service based on the model of the Royal Flying Doctor Service to support central Australian farmers and their livestock.<br></p><p>Of her ‘Strong Mind, Compassionate Heart’ approach to fulfilling her goals, Mackenzie says: “If a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.”</p><p>“Working hard is just part of how I have been brought up and who I am.</p><p>“I am very grateful for the support I’ve received at Mt Maria and hope to do the school and wider community proud in my future endeavours,” shared Mackenzie.</p><p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Mackenzie-Bond-2-300x222.jpg" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Pages/News-article-two/Mackenzie-Bond-2-300x222.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;" /><br> <span class="ms-rteStyle-Normal">Image: The Dayboro Grapevine June 2017 Edition</span></p><p style="text-align:center;"> ​<img class="ms-rteStyle-Normal" alt="MackenzieBondFF-300x223.jpg" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Pages/News-article-two/MackenzieBondFF-300x223.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br> <span class="ms-rteStyle-Normal">Mackenzie Bond at Flanders Fields War Museum​</span></p>​<br>
