Macquarie Community College is an educational institution but in many ways we are also very much a community where we “walk together and talk together” to deepen our intercultural understanding and personal bonds, regardless of our beliefs, backgrounds, colour, abilities or other “differences”. Today is a day where we celebrate the richness of working and living in our diverse multicultural communities of learners.
