There will also be the McCormack Masters Primary School Challenge and performing arts workshops for dance, drama and vocals, when primary students will perform with college students at their performing arts gala showcase on June 24. The Catholic Education Commission of WA set up the school two decades ago in response to an increased demand for Catholic education in the rapidly growing northern suburbs. It opened with 30 students in 2002 in small, temporary premises until the Bradman Drive site opened that October. The college has about 850 students this year.
