Ensuring our school is a safe place for all

06.02.18

As the school year commences I want to assure all parents and carers of our absolute commitment to ensuring that Mary MacKillop College is a safe place for all.

  • Our staff are committed and trained to protect the children and young people in our care.
  • All staff and regular volunteers have current police checks.
  • We teach our children age-appropriate strategies to keep themselves safe through South Australia’s Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum.
  • Staff complete certification and undertake regular updated training in Responding to Abuse and Neglect in Education and Care Settings.
  • We also promote strategies to minimise bullying and help students stay safe online.

You can read more about our commitment to the wellbeing of your child on our website www.marymackillop.sa.edu.au

Additional information about the broader protection policies of Catholic Education SA can be found on their website

The website also includes links to online resources for parents and students on a range of topics including anxiety, depression, bullying and how to support your child.

If you have any questions or concerns about child safety please contact the College.
