What do students love about MacKillop?
If you ask St Mary MacKillop College Captains Adrian Thomas and Abigirl Maminimini what they love about MacKillop, they'll tell you about the opportunities for its students, its welcoming environment, and the quality of its teachers.
MacKillop has all the advantages that being Canberra's largest school can provide: lots of different people to be friendly with, a wide range of curriculum options, extensive facilities, and a huge range of sports and co-curricular choices. From day to day, however, the two-campus setup means students enjoy a relatively small learning environment.
"When we started at MacKillop we learnt very quickly that there's something for every interest here," Abigirl said.
"We could take part in a range of sports, gifted and talented programs, leadership opportunities, performances, and take a huge range of fun and interesting classes.
"Our teachers have always encouraged us to do our best, be ourselves, and pursue our interests, and because everyone is welcome at MacKillop, we've had lots of different people to share the journey with."
