This house is named after Saint Mary MacKillop.
It was in April 1901 that she came to Broadmeadows to the Babies Home, which had been established by the Sisters of St. Joseph earlier that year.
The Broadmeadows Campus is located on the grounds of the original Babies Home and the Sisters and Nurses once used many of the buildings we use today.
During her life, Saint Mary MacKillop made an extraordinary contribution to the society of her time and the wonderful work she commenced continues to the present day through her religious order.
The MacKillop House symbolism derives from it's namesake, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
The MacKillop Saints, strive to have integrity, vision and to follow one's dreams.
This House looks to St Mary of the Cross for inspiration in all it's endeavours.

To the tune of 'When the Saints go Marching in'
We are MacKillop
We are strong
We come here to sing our song
WHO ARE! WHO ARE! WHO ARE WE!
WE ARE MACKILLOP FROM PCC!
Oh when the saints
Go marching in
Oh when the saints go marching in
Oh how I want to be in MacKillop
WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN!
