2022 Principal's Welcome


As Principal of Mary MacKillop College, I sincerely welcome you.  

Our website is but a snapshot of our interconnected, joy-filled, learning community and the truly remarkable education students are afforded at MMC to 'Become', 'Flourish', and 'Lead the Way' as accomplished MacKillop Women.

Our well-credentialed and dedicated staff, many of whom are leaders in their fields, are the cornerstone of our MacKillop Education in the Josephite Tradition.  Their expertise and high standards underpin our contemporary, rigorous, and diverse curriculum which inspires students to cultivate creativity, excellence, justice, and compassion. 

Committed to being people of purpose and achieving our potential, recent graduates and existing MacKillop Women have won numerous prestigious state and national awards across a range of S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) endeavours.  

Families appreciate the positive learning culture that is modelled and the very generous co-curricula program. With sporting costs included in our tuition fees, students can participate in multiple teams across the year. Wide-ranging cultural opportunities showcase our students' extraordinary creativity, and an impressive span of social justice initiatives encourages authentic student agency. 

As a master-planned College, we have a cap of 720 students which allows us to prioritise wellbeing for learning for each MacKillop Woman. For this reason, I encourage families seeking enrolment for their daughter to apply early. Recent demand has meant we are now conducting many interviews for possible applicants in Year 3 and 4. 

To further gain an appreciation of the remarkable experience Mary MacKillop College can offer for your daughter's secondary education, please contact our Enrolments Registrar to arrange a Principal's Tour for you and your daughter.  

With a love of learning central to my being, I am honoured to lead and serve this incredibly talented College community where our Vision, Mission and Values combine to positively shape our students' lives and our future.
