Mary MacKillop College is a Catholic secondary school for girls located in Wakeley, New South Wales, providing Catholic education to the Smithfield, Fairfield, Cabramatta and Villawood parishes in the Fairfield area of Sydney.[1][3] The school was originally founded as Rosary High School in 1946 in Fairfield,[4] while the Sisters of St Joseph, a teaching order founded by Mary MacKillop, have been engaged in the area since 1931. In its current form the college was established in 1991, and is one of the newest schools in the Archdiocese of Sydney.[1] Mary MacKillop Colleges emphasises community, and each of the school's houses - Arena, Crosio, Goolagong, Henderson, McCormack and O'Shane - are named after women the school sees as worthy role models for the students. To promote a sense of community across year groups, pastoral care groups incorporate students from Year 7 to Year 12.[5] Mary MacKillop College offers core and elective courses for junior students and a range of HSC courses for senior students.[6][7]
