Middle School

In Year 7, St Mary MacKillop College students are carefully introduced to a vibrant Middle School environment through a supportive homeroom in a dedicated classroom cluster. Progressively streamed classes from Years 7 - 9 encourage English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities oriented students to be challenged academically, preparing them for the wide range of course options in Senior School.

Practical and creative rotations in Years 7 and 8 allow students to discover and develop their skills and interests in the Arts, Sports and Technologies with the help of passionate specialist teachers. From Year 9 they begin to find their practical and creative focus, choosing semester course electives in these areas.
