St Mary MacKillop Primary

Mary MacKillop Primary aims to ensure that each child is challenged to reach their full potential by exploring and developing their unique gifts and talents. The school achieves this through evaluating current practices across all key learning areas for all children in their learning, and by providing students with a wide variety of extracurricular activities.

One of the centre values at Mary MacKillop is ‘Respect’. This expresses itself in the way all members of the school community relate to each other and the whole school environment. The school also endeavours to help the children ‘care for the earth’.

The school motto, ‘Together We Grow’, is given life through the school’s vision to realise an alive and growth promoting community which reflects the values of the Gospel.
