Principal’s message

Parents are the first teachers of their children and their role in their lives is crucial.  I value and appreciate this and encourage parents to take a keen interest and active role in their child’s secondary education.  The journey through teenage years to adulthood is a beautiful one but it can be complex and a close partnership with the school will assist our students as they blossom and grow”.

Lismore Catholic Schools Parent Assembly

The Parent Assembly is the diocesan parent representative body and works to support parents/carers to effectively fulfill their roles as the first and foremost educators of their children. The work of the Parent Assembly aligns with the Family School and Community Partnership Statement by promoting the key dimensions of effective family school partnerships at local, regional and diocesan level. All schools can access a grant to use in collaboration with Parent Assembly to engage parents in:

  • Faith formation for families
  • Connecting to their child’s educational experience
  • Parenting education opportunities.

Parent/Teacher Interviews

At several points through the school year, MacKillop College hosts Learning Conversations (formerly known as parent/teacher interviews). As per all conversations in relation to our students’ learning, we encourage your child to also attend these appointments.

These interviews are one part of the very important process of our students gaining the most from their schooling and provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to meet to ensure open and collaborative communication which assists students not only in their learning, but in their growth as young men and women.

The Learning Conversation times are arranged through our Assistant Principal of Curriculum and parents are notified via the College Newsletter and email in order to schedule times with the appropriate teachers.

Information Evenings

Every year for our incoming Year 7 students and those of our Year 10 students who choose to continue Year 11 and 12 HSC education through MacKillop College, we hold information evenings. These are collective efforts from our college staff members to showcase all our college has to offer for those families in the community who are considering, or have chosen to, enrol here.

For the different year levels, communication and details of the events are advertised via our College Website and Facebook page. Throughout the year the college hosts various information evenings to assist parents in their partnership with the school to better understand the academic requirements, social challenges and wellbeing of teenagers. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these evenings.
