PERFECT PREP AT MARY MACKILLOP
TIM FRANZMAN, HEAD OF JUNIOR SCHOOL AT MARY MACKILLOP CATHOLIC COLLEGE
Starting Prep is an often new and big adventure for parents and students alike. Mary Mackillop Catholic College offers the best start for your child’s education journey, providing a solid base to build upon through their future schooling years.
Our Prep program fosters faith and values development integrated into the curriculum, inquiry and play-based curriculum, commitment to the growth and development of the whole child — spiritually, intellectually, physically, culturally, socially and emotionally — integration within the wider school community and close partnerships with parents and care-givers.
Our highly qualified, passionate and experienced teachers are supported by full-time teacher assistants in every Prep classroom.
Mary Mackillop staff create an atmosphere of care and love through a faith-based education with the values of St Mary of the Cross Mackillop, and Christ at the center of all we do.
Your child will thrive in a vibrant and innovative classroom setting and enjoy the many play areas in our highly regarded junior school play area.
Starting in Prep, your child will experience an array of opportunities through our diverse curriculum and after school programs, innovative learning spaces and our sought after instrumental music program.
