The staff of Mary MacKillop Museum are working with experienced educators to create curriculum resources and activities for teachers, parents and students. We hope these will help to promote a better understanding and knowledge of the legacy of Mary MacKillop, Julian Tenison Woods and the Josephite story – and how it continues to grow, develop and take on new directions in response to the needs of today.
