Since this school seeks to build a truly Catholic ethos and teaches unapologetically and completely the truths of the Catholic Faith, it is important that parents seeking to enrol their children in the school, believe and practise the Catholic Faith and support fully the educational and religious aims of the school.
The school exists not to replace or compensate for but to reinforce the religious and cultural values of the parents. It recognises that conflict between home and school in these matters is detrimental to the human and Christian development of the child.
The criteria are multi-dimensional; no single criterion (other than spiritual development) is taken in isolation; we look for the ‘whole person’ and attempt to choose applicants who will be best suited to the holistic schooling offered at Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges.
Read our Prospectus
then contact the school for more information.
(See Procedure column.)
Interviews for Year K-12 classes commencing the following year will be conducted between August and November. Please note that not all applicants will receive an interview and not all families interviewed will necessarily receive an offer of a place.
Re-enrolment is on a yearly basis and the school reserves the right not to re-enrol students as it sees fit. Parents will be notified of the school's decision to re-enrol in the last term of each year. Parents always have the right to withdraw their children or not to re-enrol them but they should, as far as possible give one term's notice of this.
Families should carefully read the website content to appreciate the values and principles of this school community. The Prospectus gives further information.
Initial contact by the parent/s with the school either by email, phone or a visit to the school is the next step. See Contact page.
If the parent/s is interested in joining the school, a questionnaire is supplied regarding their expectations of the school and the needs of their child/children. This should be returned to the school if the parent/s wish to proceed with an interview.
Based on the results of this questionnaire an interview may be granted.

Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges has adopted a uniform that reflects this school’s appreciation for personal discipline and standards of excellence as well as its commitment to cultivating a communal school spirit. It helps the students to appreciate the higher importance of the inner life of the person over external appearances and eliminates the element of the competitiveness of fashion.
