School Improvement Plan

Here at MacKillop, our School Improvement Plan can be broken down into four key areas; Catholic Identity and Ethos, Effective Teaching and Learning, Pastoral Support and Wellbeing and Leadership, Partnerships and Resourcing. Our priorities and goals are reviewed yearly and developed based upon previous years' experiences and results.

Girls may also wear plain, navy blue tights under their uniform. Girls and boys are permitted to wear plain, navy blue tracksuit pants over their uniform (as this allows for later removal if the weather warms). Tracksuit pants are NOT to be worn under girls’ dresses, in place of tights.

    Students must wear black leather or vinyl footwear (joggers) on all occasions. These shoes can either be velco or lace-up but must be 100% black in colour. Slip on shoes, canvas shoes and footwear of other colours are NOT permitted.

The hat does not have a drawstring however, parents may add a drawstring (in the NAVY BLUE colour) at their own discretion. We strongly encourage you to bring your child’s newly purchased hat into the office so that your child’s name can be written inside the hat, to reduce the chance of it becoming lost.
  • Hair and Grooming
    All hair accessories must be plain, minimalist and either navy blue, black, teal or white in colour. Large decorative hair pieces are NOT acceptable. For health and safety reasons, hair that is long enough to be tied back, should be worn in this manner (boys and girls). Haircuts must be neat and tidy in appearance and not falling into eyes, or around the face. Hair must not be dyed or coloured or worn in a style that is deemed to be inappropriate for primary school. Tracks, rats tails, mohawks and styles shorter than guage 2 are considered inappropriate for MacKillop students.
