Learner Centred Approach

Learners are unique and have different ways of thinking and learning.

Equity and Excellence for all Learners

Students' needs, backgrounds, perspectives and interests are reflected in learning and teaching.

  • Learning experiences are purposeful, engaging and enjoyable. 
  • A supportive team approach values and recognises effort, achievement and excellence.

Nurturing Community

Learning in a nurturing environment supports and encourages all learners to be the best that they can be.

  • Parents and staff work in partnership.
  • Open communication between home and school is encouraged and supported.
  • Opportunities are provided for engagement with the wider community.
  • Supportive administrative practices are in place for families.
  • A safe and supportive learning environment is a priority.

Our Catholic Faith

The traditions of our Catholic faith provide a strong foundation for learning and teaching.

  • Our community follows the example of Jesus and St Mary of the Cross Mac​Killop.
  • Opportunities for social action and justice are planned for and provided.
  • Religious Education experiences reflect Catholic traditions and are meaningful and relevant to our contemporary world.

The Mary Mackillop ‘holding cross’ is used as the symbol for our Vision for Learning.
