St Mary MacKillop Catholic Primary School has been established primarily for the education and faith formation of Baptised Catholic children. We are open and welcoming to all Catholic students and where places exist, non-Catholic children as well.
As the first educators of their children, parents are encouraged to enter into partnership with our school to promote and support their child’s education. We strive for excellence in student learning, their wellbeing and spiritual growth.
As a Catholic primary school, we offer a broad comprehensive curriculum with an authentic Catholic understanding of Christ and his teaching, as well as a lived appreciation of membership of the Catholic Church.
St Mary MacKillop Catholic Primary School is an integral part of the mission of the church. We ensure an authentic Catholic identity and our enrolment Policy is reflective of the guidelines approved by the Archbishop of Melbourne.

St Mary MacKillop gives first preference for places within the school to Baptised Catholic students from Catholic families.
Families wishing to enrol students outside of the New Prep enrolment period, i.e those in Years 1 – 6 and Prep enrolments outside the enrolment period will be asked to complete some basic information about their child and will have their child placed on a Waitlist. If a place becomes available, a staff member will contact the family to arrange an interview with the Principal and organise for Enrolment paperwork to be sent to the family. After meeting with the Principal a decision will be made about whether the enrolment will progress to acceptance or return to the Waitlist.
