In the spirit of the vision and mission of our College community, we are committed to be partners with parents and families in pursuing the wellbeing, learning and character development of our students. College policies and procedures are directed towards the supporting of these goals. The social norms of the school are fundamental in establishing the environment in which these goals are pursued. The College’s Uniform policy assists in creating a suitable educational environment at MacKillop.
The wearing of a school uniform is a tradition with a significant history in Australia generally, and within Catholic education in particular. It has a strong value as an outward symbol of the pursuit of a common purpose – Education. The wearers of a uniform are identified as members of a particular community; in our case as members of the MacKillop Catholic College community. The wearing of a common outfit promotes a shared sense of belonging and purpose.
