Staff Pilgrimage 2017

20th March 2017|0 Comments

For two wonderful days our staff travelled together on a spiritual journey exploring the cradle of the Catholic faith in New Zealand.  Under the guidance of Father Kerry Prenderville, our journey started with the visit to Tane Mahuta, gatekeeper of Te Tai Tokerau.  Here we were called to the North and stood in awe at the majesty of this magnificent tree which was growing before the time of Christ.  We then travelled to the Hokianga Heads where Bishop Pompallier made his first entry to Aotearoa.  We were joined by Alan Hessell who shared with us the history of the area.  [...]

Kapa Haka

20th March 2017|0 Comments

On Thursday 16 March, the McAuley High School Kapa Haka group, Ngā Kō Mārire, performed at the ASB Polyfest.  Tutored by Katarena Pōtae and Iwingaro Matthews, the girls performed seven times as part of their bracket - waiata tira, whakaeke, mōteatea, poi, haka taparahi, waiata ā ringa and a whakawātea.  Placing second in the female haka, Ngā Kō Mārire performed with much mana and dignity.  They looked stunning in their uniforms and did our school community so proud!  Mauriora!

Welcome, Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Malo E Lelei, Ni Sa Bula Vinaka, Fakalofa Lahi Atu, Kia Orana.

Our Motto – “Domine in te speravi – Lord, in you I have hoped” – stresses our trust in God and the responsibility for each one of us to be people of hope for the world.

McAuley High School offers a quality Catholic education to girls in academic years 9 – 13 which challenges students to strive for standards of personal excellence. The school was founded in 1963 by the Sisters of Mercy, and we continue to walk proudly in the Mercy tradition. McAuley students are from multicultural backgrounds, and we rejoice in our diversity.

We pray that when a young woman leaves McAuley High School she will be a woman of Mercy with strong Gospel values. She will have concern for others, especially those less fortunate than herself.

Staff care about their students – our school has a family atmosphere, and we provide a supportive environment, in which students can excel. We also offer a wide range of artistic, cultural, sporting, career and outreach opportunities.
