Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”
The charism of St Mary of the Cross influences all we do at Mary MacKillop Primary School. Values, such as respect, responsibility, compassion, courage and being a problem solver, were so important to Mary MacKillop in her life journey, and so are regularly explored throughout all year levels. Our School values emanate Mary MacKillop’s spirituality and are supported by inspirational Scriptural quotes.
To learn more about Mary MacKillop’s charism, each class produces a collaborative prayer mat focusing on a quote taken from Mary MacKillop’s writings. In addition, a lovely feature wall located in the main Office Reception area displays many of Mary MacKillop’s quotes. These visual displays provide an opportunity for our students, families and visitors to reflect upon Mary MacKillop’s words, and come to know her influence in making a difference to many lives. Mary MacKillop’s life journey is exemplified in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
