Latest Update

26 October 2021

Following the Premier, Mark McGowan's latest announcement, a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy will apply for our state, with a phased approach to a majority of occupations and workforces within Western Australia.

All staff at St Mary MacKillop College fall into Category two:

  • Industries and workforce deemed critical to ongoing delivery of business and the function of the community;
  • Mandating requirement in place to ensure the continuity of key services and businesses in the event of expected community transmission.

As such all staff (including relief) will be required to be fully vaccinated before the commencement of Term 1 in the 2022 school year.
This mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy applies to staff only, not students.

Financial Support

If you are worried about your financial situation and your capacity to pay school fees, the following options are immediately available to you:

The CEWA initiated Centrelink Health Care Card Discount Scheme provides an automatic fee concession to the holders of eligible means-tested family concession cards. This discount applies to all year levels from Kindergarten to Year 12. Additional financial considerations are also available depending on each family’s circumstance.

For parents who do not qualify for the Health Care Card discount, but who are experiencing financial difficulties, arrangements can be made to provide immediate support to assist you with tuition costs.

We want to assist you in every way possible to continue your child’s enrolment at your school. It is critical that you make contact with your school by emailing finance@mackillop.wa.edu.au so that we can put in place financial support arrangements to enable your child’s ongoing education.
