At Mackay SHS we embrace a broad curriculum that is able to cater for all learning needs. Are you academic or more suited to a vocational pathway? Do you like music or prefer playing sport? Are experiments more exciting or perhaps fashion is your passion? Can you cook, draw or sing? Or perhaps you want to learn to do all of these things.
Education is a lifelong experience - at Mackay SHS we want to be a key part of that journey.
