Staff recognised at CE Awards

The Faith in Excellence Awards

The Catholic Education Faith in Excellence Awards were held on Thursday 24 August to honour exceptional contributions to the mission of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn. 
Over 100 nominations were received from across the Archdiocese for 11 categories of awards, with MacKillop staff successful in three categories: 

  • School Office Staff Award – Janine Hickson
  • Leadership Award - Middle Leader – Kate Goolagong 
  • Leadership Award - School Leader – Maria O'Donnell 

These awards are a credit to the leadership, service and contribution of Janine, Kate and Maria, each across many years at MacKillop. 
It is also an acknowledgment of the high-quality staff we are fortunate to have working at MacKillop, across all support staff areas and in providing high quality teaching, learning and pastoral care at the College. 
MacKillop was the most represented school among the award recipients.

Acknowledgement of Country

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
