I trust that our website opens a window into the rich and vibrant life of Mary MacKillop College. Many people have suggested to me that our College is a “hidden gem”, tucked away behind Portrush Road in a quiet leafy street.
Our College is small in terms of student numbers and that enables strong and enduring relationships to be developed quickly between staff and students. These quality relationships go hand in hand with quality teaching and learning. Our girls feel at home and very much part of the College community.
The College has a strong connection with the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and we honour these historical connections and look to the future with hope and a sense of purpose to continually develop a faith filled community inspired by the service of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia’s first saint.
An enormously enjoyable “Come ‘n’ Try Day” was held at the College on Thursday 4 June 2015.
Chatter, fun and curiosity, quickly replaced slight apprehension as our young visitors gathered in the College Conference Centre to begin introductions and warm welcome with our Acting Deputy Principal, Mrs Helen Riekie.
Guided by our helpful Student Leaders, the Come ‘n’ Try students were placed in groups; many with fellow school friends, and taken to the first stage of their adventurous day at the College. Friendships between our Years 5 to 7 Come ‘n’ try visitors quickly took shape, as strangers became friends and interests became known.
Our community celebrated Jamie Oliver's ‘Food Revolution Day.’ What a culinary delight! Our senses were delighted, our taste-buds tantalised and our imagination for what is possible with healthy ingredients was sparked.
The Opening of the Sister Catherine Clark Library and Resource Centre and naming of the Sister Margaret Lamb Gymnasium & Multi Function Centre was held on Sunday 1 March.
The ceremony was officiated by College Principal Kath McGuigan and College Captains Stephanie and Carla, with valuable words spoken by our special guests, Sister Catherine Clark rsj and Sister Margaret Lamb rsj, whom our new buildings are named after.
On Sunday 1 March, we enjoyed a perfect Autumn day for The Mary MacKillop College Open Day!
Smiles and excitement could be seen on the faces of the many parents, children, aunts, uncles and grandparents who visited our College for an afternoon filled with discovery, new acquaintances, entertainment, food and fun.
I am pleased to announce the 2014 SACE results for Mary MacKillop College.
