“Knowing your child is safe and happy at school is very important at MacKillop Catholic College, Warnervale. The College has so many opportunities and experiences to offer students across a broad range of activities.”
Mr Steve Todd

MacKillop Catholic College is the only K-12 Catholic school on the Central Coast of NSW. The College offers a very safe environment which reflects the ethics and values of Mary MacKillop.

MacKillop is unique in that the local Parish church and infrastructure are located within the College grounds.

The College has a strong academic emphasis and a vibrant House system which reflects the charism of Mary MacKillop. Strong leadership opportunities are provided to students in a wide range of activities at all levels from K to 12.

MacKillop Catholic College offers a ‘Window of Excellence’ program for Years 5 to 8 in which students work together across year groups to design and develop solutions to questions they pose in consultation with their teachers.

The College has a vibrant Creative Arts program with students participating in a wide variety of activities in music, dance and drama.

Technology is an integral part of learning at MacKillop. This year, all Year 7 students are learning through an iPad program which will be expanded to other Year groups in 2016.

Students learn, produce and share work through the College Lighthouse portal which has enabled teachers to explore different learning strategies to enhance outcomes for our students.

Parents have this year been provided with a portal through our Edumate administration system to monitor their child’s progress and interact with teachers.

The College Library is being redesigned to enhance its role as the learning hub in the College where students can co-operate and collaborate through technology.

Dedicated technology rooms exist across the College to meet the specific learning needs in Music, Visual Arts, Physical Education and Technological and Applied Studies.
