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 hope” – 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.
