About our school

MacKillop College is proud to stand as a representation of our society. We are responsive to the needs of our students and community, striving continuously to improve the educational experiences and opportunities presented. MacKillop College believes in offering a wide variety of different disciplines of learning. Whether a student has an affinity for academia, politics, social matters, religion, leadership, sport, performance, music, hospitality, etc., MacKillop College gives our students the tools they need to pursue their interests and build their experiences. We support the whole person based on what will benefit them in their individual journey. We also encourage exploration, discussion and an awareness of current political and social issues. Students are provided with guidance to become advocates for transformation in the world. This is evidenced by the student-run extracurricular groups, which include EcoMacK (aiming to implement sustainability strategies on campus and within the community), MacKillop College Zoo Crew (giving students hands-on experience in animal husbandry), and HarMacK (which focuses on cultural diversity and inclusivity). Further to HarMacK, the College embraces diversity with our International Program, reaching into Europe and Asia with international trips, homestay opportunities and immersion programs. For those who can’t travel abroad, we have a variety of celebrations in honour of diversity, such as Languages Week, Harmony Week and Music Week.
