MacKillop Catholic Primary School Student Protection

Student Protection

At MacKillop Catholic Primary School any concerns or reasonable suspicions about a student’s safety and wellbeing or the behaviour of a staff member or volunteer which a student considers to be inappropriate, will continue to be managed in accordance with Rockhampton Catholic Education Student Protection Processes.

Student Welfare

For students who require extra social or emotional support we have a school counsellor, Collette Simpson, who works at the school every Wednesday. If you would like your child to have access to the counsellor you need to see the Office for a referral form. Usually children see the counsellor anywhere from 3 to 6 visits (can be more if required). Children are seen on a priority basis after discussion with the Principal and Counsellor.

School Chaplain

MacKillop was fortunate to secure Chaplaincy funding for 2020 – 2022. Collette Simpson is our School Chaplain and works at MacKillop every Friday and every second Tuesday in this role in 2021. Ms Simpson runs the Seasons for Growth program, supports the MJR Family Groupings and also supports student wellbeing.
