The College

About the Board

The College Board has on it representatives from the parent body, staff and the College Executive. It meets about once a month and reviews development within the College relating to things such as academic, financial and planning issues. The Board is also responsible for ensuring that the religious ethos of the College is promoted and integrated into all aspects of College life.

The process for determining the parent representatives is:

  1. Vacancies are advertised through the School Newsletter and parents are invited to submit an Expression of Interest.
  2. The Chair of the Board and the Principal determine a shortlist and an election is held to determine the successful candidate(s).
  3. The Principal notifies all applicants of the outcome of the process.
  4. The MacKillop community is informed of membership changes through the College Newsletter and College website.

Staff representatives are voted into positions whenever a staff vacancy arises.

Acknowledgement of Country

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.
