Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey

Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta schools are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. Catherine McAuley welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.

Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.

After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!

Inspired learning starts with highly motivated and professional teachers

Like you, we know that great teachers make a real difference in a child’s life. Our teachers are lifelong learners too and regularly undertake professional development to keep up to date with current best practice in education. Our expert teachers will tailor teaching to meet your child at their point of need, track how they are progressing, and respond with extra support when needed.

In responding to the individual needs of students, our Diversity Team identifies areas of student strengths and challenges and provides specialist support. Catherine McAuley also provides a::

  • counsellor
  • careers advisor
  • teacher librarian.
