The Mary MacKillop Unit caters for full time students with a mild/moderate intellectual disability. 

The aims of the Mary MacKillop Unit facility 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 in the Middle Years participate in a range of subjects within the MacKillop Unit and their Year level cohort. Students work towards individual goals established as a part of their Individual Education Plan. 

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