Living on the Mid North Coast students of MacKillop College are fortunate to be exposed to an extensive array of sports catering for all skill levels.

Our students are offered representative sporting opportunities through our pathway, including MacKillop College, Diocese of Lismore, NSW Combined Catholic Colleges, NSW All Schools competitions and National selection. We have had great success in students being nominated locally for Hastings Sports Awards and representing NSWCCC in various fields.

We offer students the opportunity to participate in a chosen weekly sport elective program for Year 9 and 10 catering for their needs and interest.

We offer students a balanced approach to academics and elite level sporting prowess.

For any sporting enquiries you can contact our Leader of Sport Erin Denham at


If your child registers for a Representative sport at any level (School, Diocesan, NSWCCC) and can no longer attend can you please notify the relevant person so our attendance records are accurate.
