MacKillop Education was established in 2011. However, our commitment to education dates back to the 1800's and the beliefs and passion of our founders.
MacKillop Family Services continues the proud tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters of St Joseph and Edmund Rice Education Australia and remains committed to empowering children, young people and families.
The founders of each of these orders, Catherine McAuley, Mary MacKillop and Edmund Rice, believed that to give expression to their faith and values at the heart of the Catholic tradition, they should respond to and support those most in need. They each recognised that access to education was critical to the creation of a more just and humane society.
