We serve local and extended communities by providing high-quality Catholic education in the tradition of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and aligned with the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice.

The Gospels are central to all we do and who we are. We engage in outreach activities locally and abroad to help develop students who are caring, ethical and committed to the service of others. It is our belief that MacKillop students will develop into confident, discerning and compassionate young men and women ready to contribute to their communities and our world.

The College is fortunate to have professional, innovative staff who are committed to providing a high standard of learning and teaching and dedicated pastoral care. The newly renovated College buildings provide us with outstanding, modern facilities and spacious grounds and we are very proud of our strong technological profile within Catholic education.

We are focused on quality teaching and personalised learning which is expressed through our learning principles:

Learning should be aspirational
Learning should be demanding
Learning should be achievable
Learning should be accessible
Learning should be contextual
Learning should be collaborative
Learning should be accountable
Learning should be diverse
Learning should be physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual

We acknowledge families as the first and foremost educators of their children and want to work constructively with them to see each individual student flourish.

On behalf of the MacKillop Catholic College community I welcome you and encourage you to take time to explore our newly launched website and to discover a little more about us.
