 Message from the Principal

Welcome to McAuley College, Beaudesert.

McAuley College is a master-planned Years 7 to 12 co-educational College situated in Beaudesert, the heart of the Scenic Rim. As a Catholic community, we are thrilled to invite students and their parents to join our welcoming and inclusive community. The values that appear in our College badge are the foundation and priorities from which our College will grow – BELIEVE ∙ LEARN ∙ SERVE.

In 2017, we will open our doors to the local community offering a secondary education in the Mercy tradition. The College will deliver a vision for learning that is contemporary and innovative, whilst also encouraging our students to be life-giving through an active social justice program and appreciation of their ecological footprint. The inaugural Year 7 students will benefit from our shared principle and Model of Pedagogy based around the work of Hattie, where each student is entitled to learn from quality teaching.

McAuley College will offer a unique caring and supportive environment. Our community focus and size, coupled with our Pastoral Care Program, provides greater opportunity to respond to the needs of each individual where positive relationships form the basis of all of our interactions. The students will be provided with the skills to be responsible decision makers through our Positive Behaviour for Learning framework and encouraged to accept the consequences of their actions.

McAuley College will deliver a comprehensive curriculum that is reflective of the requirements of the Australian Curriculum. The curriculum incorporates a Religious Education Program delivered across the year levels, integral to the faith life of the community. An extensive co-curricular program enables the students to actively participate in cultural and sporting activities.

McAuley College is proud of its staff. They are well qualified and provide a wonderful mix of enthusiasm, energy and expertise in order to deliver a challenging and innovative curriculum in our technology rich learning environment.

I invite you to visit us, either on the website or join us on one of our College Open Days to experience the unique and special nature of our community.
