MacKillop College Bathurst – ‘A Light To The World’

MacKillop College is an all-girls Catholic day and boarding secondary school of 600 students located in Central West NSW.

We aim to educate the whole person - spiritually, academically, socially, physically and emotionally. For girls, a Catholic all-girl school is the optimum environment for such an education. Our mission statement, "A Catholic faith community dedicated to excellence in the education of young women" emphasises our strong sense of Christian mission to develop each girl's talents fully.

MacKillop has a proud academic tradition. Our students have achieved excellent results in the Higher School Certificate and in a wide range of external examinations and competitions. A large proportion of the graduating class consistently receive university entrance offers while many students are the recipients of scholarships at tertiary level. Students are encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility and structures, helping them to participate in the decision-making process in the College.

Life at MacKillop is enriched with a wide range of co curricular activities. They stretch from an extensive House Team Program, music, choir, drama, dance, enrichment activities and clubs through to an array of sports, service groups and the opportunity to extend their experiences to travel overseas.

Students are invited to participate in these activities that promote their talents and gifts as well as develop their social justice commitment, their connectedness with their fellow house team members and to explore their horizons and beyond.

The invitation and opportunity is placed for every MacKillop girl - the challenge is to aspire to become the best person each student can become.
