Principal's Message

Welcome back to 2016.

Yesterday many staff, students and community members gathered at St Agnes' Church to farewell Mr Gerard O'Brien from MacKillop College, and to lend support to Mrs Anne O'Brien, former Principal of St Joseph's Regional College. It was a beautiful ceremony and Anne is most appreciative of the support that the St Agnes' Parish Secondary Schools community has offered. Please keep Anne and the MacKillop College community in your prayers.

I wish to sincerely thank you for your understanding in regard to the delayed start to the school year due to Gerard's funeral.
