Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges

Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges Limited (SMMC) seeks to participate in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the formation of students, with special emphasis given to their spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth.

The K-12 school was founded in 2007 by Joanne and Bill Andrews as an independent school in the Catholic tradition. Located in Wagga Wagga (NSW), this school seeks to form students as candidates for Heaven, each one loved and respected as a unique person – truly a child of God. To this end we train the students to seek what is true, good and beautiful, educating them in an atmosphere of Catholic culture where the Christian Faith is taught in its fulness, the life of virtue seriously pursued, and academic excellence promoted as a true and great human value.

One of the school’s many strengths is the fact that its current enrolment is under 200 students, which gives staff a unique opportunity to focus on care for the individual person, and pursue academic excellence. The school has consistently achieved outstanding NAPLAN results over the years.

The school welcomes applications from suitably qualified persons, who meet the following criteria:

  • hold a valid NSW Working with Children Check
