The return to school

The return to school

Students have returned to face-to-face learning at MacKillop as part of the ACT Government’s relaxing of lockdown restrictions.

Year 9 started back at the Padua Campus on Monday 25 October, with Year 10 returning to the St Peter’s Campus on the very same day.

In Week 5, Years 7 and 8 returned on Monday 1 November.

Year 12 had commenced at the start of Term 4 but the College closed for four days in mid-October after the St Peter’s Campus was identified as a COVID exposure site. Due to the closure, Year 11's return was pushed back to Wednesday 20 October, while Year 12 recommenced the following day.

The staggered return to campus gave students the opportunity to learn and adhere to the College’s return-to-school protocols, which were developed to ensure the health and safety of students by reducing the potential risk and spread of infection.
