Education Support

MacKillop Family Services, a Catholic community agency, exists to support, foster hope and promote justice for children, young people and families, particularly those who have experienced distress, disadvantage and abuse.

MacKillop works across New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. Each young person and family we work with is protected, nurtured and given the chance to build a brighter future.

MacKillop Family Services is an accredited provider of The Sanctuary Model. Sanctuary supports organisations to provide a safe and caring environment for people affected by trauma, and to maintain a culture that reflects these qualities at every level within the organisation.

The central goal of MacKillop Family Services is to support, to foster hope and to promote justice for children, young people and their families, particularly those who experience distress, disadvantage and abuse. Education is central to that goal. 

 

Children in Out-of-Home Care are a high priority client group of MacKillop Education, as are adolescents at risk of leaving school without vocational skills.

We offer education support through our Children in Residential Care Programs (CIRC) and the Western Education Support Team Program (WEST).

 

Our schools in Geelong (Foundation – VCAL), Maidstone (Years 3-6), and Caulfield (currently focussed on the primary years), cater for students who are disengaged, or at risk of disengaging, from education. The education programs provide flexible learning pathways and they equip participants with the skills to either remain at MacKillop School, re-enter mainstream school or, for senior students, to take up employment or further education options, including traineeships and apprenticeships.
