The vision for the MacKillop Catholic College community involves a strong community participation in vibrant, caring and compassionate activities. We will be a community of learning where each individual student is cared for and valued, and the wider Palmerston community is enriched by the presence of our College.
The teachings of Christ permeates all aspects of life at the College. They go beyond the classroom – our staff know their students and are willing to work with them.
