Strategic Planning Brochure 2021

Each family will receive today a copy of our Strategic Planning Brochure for 2021.  This document was launched and discussed at the McAuley Community Council meeting last night.

We are proud to outline our three main goals for this year and to let our community know some of the many innovations and projects happening at McAuley this year.

As a school we are unique, and we want to work to promote our strengths and move forward with optimism and embrace the many opportunities we have.

As always, I am happy to answer your questions or discuss any concerns you might have.

Year 7 & Year 10 Vaccinations TOMORROW

Parents are reminded to please return the consent forms to the Secondary Office or vaccination will not proceed . Thank you.


You will be aware of increased restrictions following the Melbourne lock down over the weekend.  Catholic Education has provided the following advice.

NSW Schools

  • NSW has not closed its borders. However, NSW has tightened entry requirements for returning NSW residents with the signing of a new Public Health Order, after the announcement by the Victorian Government of a five-day ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown.
  • Under the state-wide Order, anyone arriving in NSW from Victoria after 11.59pm on Friday 12 February 2021 must remain at their home or place of residence for the five-day period announced by the Victorian Government.

I ask that any students of McAuley who may have travelled from Victoria after 11.59pm last Friday 12 February, comply with the requirement to remain at home for 5 days and that they notify their child/ren’s classroom or PC teacher immediately.


Dear Parents of Year 1B

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Cat Dawson to the staff of McAuley.  “Miss D” will work in 1B with Ms Boxall beginning next Tuesday 16 February.

Cat’s normal days of work will be on Monday and Tuesday with Year 1 to provide release for Ms Boxall to carry out her Curriculum Coordinator role and to work with other staff to develop and enhance our literacy programs.

I know you will make Cat very welcome to our school and community.  I am certain the children will enjoy her sense of fun and versatility which she brings to the classroom.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Ms Boxall or myself if you have any questions.
