Curriculum

St Mary MacKillop Primary provides a comprehensive and exciting curriculum for all K-6 students, in line with the Board of Studies policies and the Catholic Education Office, Parramatta.

As a Catholic school we provide an integrated Religious Education program, complemented by a keen spirit of social justice.

Individual talents are recognised and developed through the provision of diverse opportunities and experiences in all aspects of the curriculum. Primary learning includes whole-class, group and individual activities designed to develop an inquiring mind and teach basic learning skills needed for schooling and later life.

At Mary MacKillop we have a child-centred and literature-based approach to literacy instruction with a strong religious dimension that runs through all the key learning areas (KLAs) of:

We believe that teaching and learning should be an engaging experience for both students and teachers. This engagement is characterised by the setting of high expectations, explicit teaching, quality relationships and a belief in life long learning.

This is best achieved within the positive and supportive environment of the school community within the Catholic tradition.
