YOUR CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT

We believe that children learn best in a caring, accepting environment and we provide a range of support programs for them, both in and beyond the classroom.

At Mary MacKillop, your child will learn life skills through sport, music and extra-curricular activities. Their understanding of compassion through social justice will hold them in good stead for the rest of their lives. We encourage all of our children to develop the concepts of responsibility and positive self-image so as to become a member of a caring community.

We have a strong anti-bullying culture at Mary MacKillop Memorial School.  We protect our students with a pro-active approach that deals with bullying, harassment and educating students about appropriate behaviour.

Each class holds workshops on the topic of anti-bullying.  These workshops also help children build resilience to empower them to manage situations, restore relationships and become strong advocates for themselves and others around them.We regularly conduct informal surveys with students to ensure we are monitoring the safety of all students while at school.

Our senior staff leaders and teachers are committed to providing a safe environment for our students, giving their personal attention when required to ensure all children are comfortable during their time at Mary MacKillop Memorial School.
