Choosing a school for your daughter or son is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. Because a good education in their formative years is one of the greatest gifts that you can give your children, it is vital that their teenage years are anchored in an educational environment where commitment to the individual is paramount. Places at Concordia are highly sought after, so prospective families are advised to make contact at least three years ahead of the intended time of enrolment and to lodge an application for enrolment as early as possible.
Enrolments are welcome from all members of the community. Concordia staff seek to walk alongside students while encouraging them to take responsibility for their own decisions, determine their own attitudes and futures, and form their own opinions about life.

Mary MacKillop College was established by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart to provide exemplary secondary education for girls. The College is named after Mary MacKillop, Australia’s first Saint, who devoted her life to the people of Australia through founding, with Julian Tenison Woods, an Order of Sisters who would educate the “children of the bush” and help all those in need.
Your daughter will receive an excellent education at Mary MacKillop College, both in class and beyond the classroom. Your daughter's personal journey will be different to her classmates and we acknowledge that she will have her own gifts and talents, strengths and challenges. Your daughter will be steeped in the values of Mary MacKillop, develop a strong passion for social justice, seek to understand the circumstances of those who are not so fortunate and most importantly develop a love of learning which will last a lifetime. Our school motto ‘Know More, Do More, Be More’ encapsulates all that we try and offer the girls and what we hope they experience at the College. We want your daughter to develop confidence, resilience and throughout their time at the College try to be the very best version of themselves. As part of their journey they will gain knowledge and develop the ability to apply that knowledge in unfamiliar circumstances. They will also understand themselves as a learner, setting them on the road to success as they discover their life purpose and passion.
Our College is a small community, rich in relationships which encourage strong connections between staff and students making Mary MacKillop College a very welcoming and special place.
We have placed a strong emphasis on developing the leadership abilities of the girls from Year 8 to the Senior Years and we do this through formal programs and by the girls attending events such as the International Women’s Day Breakfast.
