Meeting the educational aspirations and diverse needs of all students is important to us. MacKillop Catholic College is founded on values that emulate the life of Saint Mary MacKillop. Here students are encouraged to become the person God created them to be through living the values of Courage, Respect, Integrity, Inclusivity and Compassion. Each student has a valued and rightful place at our College, and they remind us that diversity is a gift to be celebrated.
Our College prides itself on strong links between home and school, high quality staff, and a permeating sense of College pride. MacKillop excels in the arts, boasting a well resourced instrumental music programme, and our prowess in dance and drama is most evidently demonstrated in the success of our musical productions. The College has consistently triumphed in the sporting arena, most recognisably in Rugby League and Netball.

With the latest facilities and technology, flexible modes of teaching & learning extend the boundaries of the conventional classroom. The College Vision Statement encourages and celebrates the involvement of the wider community. Christ's teachings permeate all aspects of life at MacKillop Catholic College, and we believe in giving our students experiences of success in all areas of education.
