About the School

Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College is a Catholic, secondary, co-educational college in South Gippsland. Situated in Leongatha, it serves the Catholic parishes of Foster, Korumburra, Leongatha, Cowes/San Remo and Wonthaggi. The College officially opened after many years of planning in February 1986 on land adjoining St. Laurence's Primary School. The beginnings were humble, in keeping with the first schools started in Australia over one hundred years ago by Mary MacKillop.  

In 1987 Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College moved to its present site and now offers a comprehensive and high quality Year 7 – 12 curriculum that is committed to:- 

  • Bringing the Gospel of Jesus to life in the students entrusted to its care. 
  • Educating the whole person; spiritually, morally, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally. 
  • Promoting excellence in all endeavours. 
  • Developing a welcoming Catholic faith community that inspires a passion for justice and service as lived by Mary MacKillop. 

It is expected that graduates of our College would: 

  • be active witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus 
  • participate in the civic life of Australian society  
  • have the skills needed for lifelong learning.
