In 2018, McAuley College has set a specific SMART goal to focus on the area of literacy as part of our Excellence in Learning and Teaching: Moving Forward strategy.

Critical Challenge

To improve Written Literacy for students; and

To develop a school wide approach to literacy improvement


2018 SMART Goal

By the end of 2018, the teaching staff, through shared professional practice, are using expected and effective practices and high yield strategies to improve written literacy. 75% of Year 7 and 8 students are demonstrating at standard in the Writing Analysis Tool (20-24). This will be achieved through a focus on the eight criteria of the WAT, with a priority on Sentence Structure and Punctuation and Spelling.​​
