Choose Life with Courage

At St Mary MacKillop College, we seek to choose life in its fullness, not only for ourselves but also for others. The directive to ‘Choose Life’ comes from the Hebrew Scriptures (Deut 30:19), and John’s gospel says of Jesus: “I have come so that you may have life, and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10).

Living with courage challenges us to be passionate people and dare to be even more than we imagined possible. Courage is one of the great qualities of Mary MacKillop that we strive to emulate. It calls for discernment, compassion and integrity, seeking to make a positive difference and transform the world.
