MacKillop College – Many journeys … one community

In the current political and social arena, MacKillop College is proud to stand as a miniature representation of our society and all the possibilities therein. We are responsive to the needs of our students and our community, striving continuously to improve the educational experiences and opportunities presented. MacKillop College is about its students. About giving each individual a voice, and the tools and understanding to become part of a global community that lives to contribute for a better way of life.

We are a co-educational secondary Catholic college named after St Mary MacKillop, co-founder of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. Just as the Sisters of St Joseph were committed to education being inclusive of those who could not afford it, MacKillop College is committed to cultural inclusivity and a love of diversity.

It is in service to this that we continue to develop our international program, reaching into Europe and Asia with international trips, homestay opportunities and immersion programs. It is also in service to this that we bring those cultures closer to home for those who are not able to travel internationally. In combination with Languages Week, Harmony Week and Music Week, diversity is celebrated. Students can explore French, Italian and Japanese while eating food from all over the world.

We also continuously hope to expand the way in which we share and experience the voices within our college community by exploring personal stories in more depth. Whether through art, prose, sport, style, debating, anime, chess, community projects or pastoral care, MacKillop facilitates and encourages students to discover what might give them the rounded education and sense of dignity they need. In this past year, we’ve seen students gain success in everything from skeet shooting to international basketball, to dance, music and more. We’ve had the privilege to award students for overcoming immense personal challenges as well as performing exceptionally academically. We’ve been able to support our students while they stood up for the environment, equity and each other.

Mary MacKillop spoke of the smallness of who we are, reminding us we are but travellers among billions of travellers in a very large world. Just so, MacKillop College is an introduction. There’s a reason the school motto is ‘Celebrating all life; Challenging all people; Dreaming the new day.’ We live and learn for a brighter, more educated and inclusive future. We are a community that believes in each other, our intent ever being to play our part in developing the whole person spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically, to enable students to become proactive and responsible global citizens.
