What sets Catherine McAuley School apart is its caring and nurturing environment inspired by our Patron Catherine McAuley and the Mercy Education Values.

We embed the values of compassion, justice, respect, hospitality, service and courage into the fabric of our school. Catherine McAuley School is blessed with a compassionated and dedicated staff who are committed to supporting students and families throughout each child’s educational journey. 

Our role is to nurture the learning of all students in our care, and support parents/caregivers as the first educators of their child. A key component of our holistic learning philosophy is to ensure that our student management is centred around our Catholic Values, particularly resting in the dignity of each individual. We believe that each child is unique and of equal importance, and has a special contribution to make to our school community. 

Central to our work is to ensure that Catherine McAuley School is a place where children feel safe, are happy, and learn in a cooperative environment. We aim to ensure children know that they are special, so they may grow in love and respect for themselves and one another and we work in partnership with parents/caregivers in order to foster children’s positive development of appropriate behaviour.
