This scholarship is based solidly on the example and values Mary MacKillop displayed when she began schools in 1866. Mary took into the schools anyone who wanted an education. Young people were never denied the opportunity for a good education because of an inability to meet the required fees. Each person, regardless of financial circumstances, race, creed or culture was treated with the deepest respect.
This tradition has continued since Mary's time. From its very beginnings in 1964, Mary MacKillop College has always managed, in the spirit of dignity and respect, to support families whose financial circumstances have not enabled them to pay fees.
In recent times, a MacKillop Scholarship Fund has been established so that the College will always be in a position to support these students.
How might I help?
In order for the College to offer assistance to those most in need, your financial assistance is sought in maintaining the Scholarship Fund. You are invited to consider making a financial contribution to the Fund.
