About our school
Mary MacKillop College prides itself on being a joy-filled learning community where students and staff raise the bar to Become, Flourish and Lead the Way as MacKillop people.
Highly qualified and dedicated academic staff, teaching in their fields of expertise, work enthusiastically with eager students to equip them with the skills to cultivate their creativity, stretch their curiosity, activate their self-direction, and harness their resilience.
Our distinctive Learning Virtues and College Values nurture, challenge and empower our MacKillop Women to be people of purpose.
Science, Technologies, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, along with an extensive sporting program, music ensembles, QDU debating, as well as immersions and outdoor education expeditions, are evidence of our commitment to the holistic development of each student.
Families appreciate how well their daughter is known and cared for, the focused leadership experiences, the innovative academic programs on offer, and the diverse, yet customised, opportunities that abound where each MacKillop Woman harnesses her potential.
Mary MacKillop College’s Leading with Purpose Program is a carefully planned formation opportunity for Year 8 students that sustains our positive culture at the heart of our valued and successful MacKillop Education. Reflective of our Vision, Mission, and strategic priorities, the Program is evidence of our commitment to successfully shaping our students’ character and virtues.
Research unequivocally shows the merits in developing student leadership skills, and more importantly, to ensure they are transferable beyond schooling.
This year, we have 27 Year 8 MacKillop Women currently undertaking this Program. Over the course of one term, students engage in a range of workshops sessions including:
- Leading from the front through public speaking
- Organisational skills, tips to manage time, and strategies to achieve balance
- Working successfully with others and building on strengths
- Student formation that promotes Gospel teachings along with our College Vision, Mission and Values.
These MacKillop Mentors then work with younger students for the purpose of helping them consolidate their transition to secondary schooling. This way, our MacKillop Mentors harness their leadership skills and are afforded a structured environment to reflect on their practices to identify skills they seeks to refine.
