Past Issues:


MAC Yearbook

The school yearbook is produced at the end of each year and is a celebration of the school year and of students’ achievements.

Secure your copy of the 2018 MAC Yearbook by contacting the General Office to organise payment. The yearbook will be published in late December 2018, and copies will only be given to those families who have paid the fee.


Writers Hub

The Writers Hub class produces at least one written publication as a part of their English course. Each publication is written by students and edited by students. The publication aims to showcase student writing in short fiction, reviews, poetry and nonfiction. The first publication was established in 2016, and has evolved as the student body in the Writers Hub class changes over the years. In 2017 students chose to focus on short fiction pieces published at the end of the year.

In 2018 students are working on fiction pieces from students across the school written, edited and illustrated by students. Students are yet to decide whether this will be crowd funded, whether it will be published as a book or as a magazine. Stay tuned for more news on the 2018 publication.

In the interim here is a selection of their diverse work:
