The College has had plans approved to commence a significant and overdue building program on the Isabella Plains Campus that will include brand new science facilities and six new classrooms. This will see the demountable classrooms on that campus fondly farewelled forever! Plans for the building program can be seen in the gallery on this page.
Building will commence, at this stage, in November and will be completed over 2017. Given that these are new buildings, rather than refurbishments, there will be no interruption to teaching and learning throughout next year.
This is an exciting development for MacKillop. Following the completion of these two projects, the College is planning to commence a Performing Arts Centre for music, dance, and drama, with a substantial theatre that will allow Performing Arts to vacate the gymnasium area and enhance the facilities for Physical Education.
There are no plans to increase the fees or to impose levies to pay for this program. Any rise in fees are planned to be kept within the usual CPI percentages.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”
With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
