An Introduction to Our School...

We desire to share the unique formation and education opportunities available at this school with many families.

Families should carefully read the website content to appreciate the values and principles of this school community. The Prospectus gives further information.   

Confirmation Resources

by Sr Mary Dominica for Year 5/6

Here are some revision summaries to supplement your child's  Confirmation preparation. There is also a document about choosing a patron saint. 

The Family Rosary

by Sr Mary Augustine O.P. of the Conventual Sisters of St Dominic 

The Rosary is what the people of God almost instinctively go to when the chips are down, and the wolf is at the door, which is why all the faithful the world over - and especially in our benighted country - need to grab their beads right now, go on their knees and  recite the Rosary - alone, with friends and above all in the family, anywhere, anytime.

Digital Safety

We live in a digital age and the internet can be easily accessed from a range of devices such as mobile phones, computers, tablets and through games consoles. This section has some links and advice to help families use the internet in a positive way whilst being aware of risks and using measures to keep safe and secure online.

The Key Online Risks 

Contact: children can be contacted by bullies or people who may want to harm them

Content: age-inappropriate or unreliable content can be available to children

Conduct: sharing too much information or spending too much time online

Commercialism: being unaware of hidden costs and advertising in apps, games and websites.

Key Safer Internet Usage

Use computers and mobile devices in a shared areas. Have ongoing conversations with children about staying safe. Use safety tools on social networks and online services. Use parental controls on your home internet. Disable the WIFI and internet at a fixed time every evening; this prevents late or early risers from using the internet unawares. Understand the devices and the parental controls.

Social Media Social media sites are constantly changing their settings and privacy policies and new sites are developing all the time.There are a huge number of every growing sites, chat rooms, games, email and mobile apps that incorporate social media and may be a safety issue for young people.

 

Particular care should be taken to protect personal details and avoiding unwanted contact or inappropriate material.

Uniform

Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges has adopted a uniform that we regard as smart, modest, affordable and easy to care for. It 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.

Addition: All students must now wear hats at break and when in the sun. Details regarding Secondary School sun hats TBA.
