Meet Our Teachers

Message from our Principal

Welcome to McAuley Catholic Central School (MCCS).

We are a proudly Catholic School operating as part of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn.  McAuley has a rich history of educating boys and girls from the Tumut area since the Mercy Sisters established the school as St Brigid’s Girls School in 1882.  The Mercy Values handed down from Catherine McAuley and the nuns that followed are at the core of our ethos and promoted visibly as the cornerstones of our school culture.

As a K-10 school we offer a point of difference from other local schools.  We work in partnership with parents to mould the academic, social and spiritual growth of young people for 11 years.  This is a large portion of a student and family’s life.  This brings with it a long and proud tradition and a strong sense of belonging and school pride.  Our staff undertake this journey with care and with love.  Each student is unique and brings with them their own skills, talents and needs.  We work to communicate openly with parents and carers to create citizens who are willing and able to contribute positively to the life of the school and the local community.

Our School Motto “Believe, Strive, Achieve” gives us strong words on which to base our learning goals and interactions with one another.  These foundational words assist in enhancing a robust and positive school culture where hospitality and care for one another is paramount.  We aim (as Catherine McAuley also did) to build a community that “…renews, invigorates and warms others…”

I welcome your enquiries and look forward to sharing our school and classrooms with you.
