The aims of the Mary MacKillop Centre are to:

  • include students in the educational and social setting of Mount Carmel College
  • provide students with a wide variety of experiences and peer relationships
  • assist students with an intellectual disability to use theoretical concepts learned in practical situations
  • teach social skills and confidence to enhance social interaction in the community
  • involve students in the local community
  • assist students in acquiring skills related to independent living

Students work towards individual goals established as a part of their Personalised Plan for Learning.

Mary MacKillop Centre students in the Senior Years begin completing SACE requirements in Year 10 through either SACE or SACE Modified.
