McAuley News

Term 1, Issue 1 - 7 February 2020



Welcome to the 2020 school year. 

We are looking forward to a year of great achievements and participation for all students at Catherine McAuley as they take up the many opportunities that are offered them this year. 

Already, since last week, we have welcomed 207 Year 7 students and 25 students in Years 8 - 12. It is always a great joy to welcome new students and their families into the school community.

As always, we value your contributions and look forward to seeing you at school events. We also invite you to make contact if you need to speak to someone at school about your daughter’s progress. The first point of contact would usually be your daughter’s Homeroom teacher, although for more serious personal matters you should contact her Year Coordinator. Anything that is related to a specific subject should be directed to the subject teacher.

Learning at Catherine McAuley in 2020

Every year schools develop a learning goal and a formation goal.

  • The formation goal is to implement the New Curriculum in Religious Education in Years 7 and 9. 

  • The learning goal for Catherine McAuley in 2020 is for students to improve their comprehension of and responses to texts across the range of subjects. 

The New Curriculum in Religious Education embodies contemporary theology and challenges us to be active participants in our religious convictions. An information night for parents is planned for 17th March 2020. Further information about this will be published in the next few weeks.

Our learning goal is a response to our student achievement data. As you know, students at Catherine McAuley are academically very successful in all the test sets used for measurement, including the HSC. This goal allows us to focus specifically on developing sophistication in students’ reading and writing to further improve their learning outcomes.

A major strategy in achieving these goals is a rigorous professional learning plan for teachers who, as professional experts in their subject areas, also benefit from continued learning in contemporary research and methods. 

Already this term, all teachers of Social Science and History have engaged in improving their teaching of reading and writing in their subject area. They are engaged in a year-long inquiry about how to teach these skills most effectively.

Reception area renovation

If you have visited the school in the last few weeks you will have noticed that the visitor and student reception areas are being renovated. The space has been gutted and is in the process of being fitted out. As the school has grown over time, the space has outgrown its purpose. This renovation will ensure it more adequately meets the needs of our school for the next generation of students. 

It is expected that the renovation will be completed by the end of February.

Emails Outside School Hours

Dear Parents and Carers,

Catherine McAuley Westmead recognises that email is a fast and convenient way to communicate with your child’s teacher.

We wish to remind you that teachers read their emails at various times throughout the school day. Further, teachers are generally not expected to respond to emails from parents and students outside of normal working hours. In the case of a genuine emergency please contact the school office during business hours on or phone 9849 9100. 

If you wish to contact your child’s teacher, please continue to direct your emails to  which will then be triaged, as per usual practice.

We appreciate your assistance and understanding.

If you have any questions about the above please feel free to contact the school office on 9849 9100.  

Kind regards

Ms Mary Refalo


Beyond Year 12 - Australian National University Annual Conference

Welcome back to the new school year! In December last year, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Australian National University conference - Beyond Year 12.  The conference was highly informative with a strong focus on what the future for our current students will look like as they move beyond secondary and tertiary education, as well as what skills are important for students to develop to help maximise their success post schooling.  At Catherine McAuley, we are very committed to providing the best possible education for your daughters and we will be working with them to ensure they develop the skills they need to best equip them for their future. 

Some interesting insights and statistics that were shared with us during the conference include;

  • A Deloitte Study has revealed that 80% of the jobs being created between now and 2030 are for knowledge thinkers. The skills of creative and critical thinking, problem solving and  analysis are very important skills to be developed to meet the needs of the types of jobs being created.Their latest ground-breaking research tells us that human skills, rather than occupations or qualifications, are the job currency of the future. The skills found to be most in undersupply include knowledge skills of coding, programming and human skills of customer service, sales, communication and resolving conflict. If you would like to read their full report it can be accessed here

  • A combination of a University degree and VET qualification will reduce one’s chance of being jobless by half.  Employability skills and the ability to articulate these are what sets a student apart from everyone else. 

  • Six universities across Australia now have TAFE on their campuses and are looking to work more collaboratively with other TAFE institutions to meet the needs of students.

  • A National Curriculum review will commence in 2020. Peter Shergold is leading a review as to what education should look like. Some of the questions he is investigating include: Should we be relying on ATAR as the single defining factor that determines what tertiary education one should do? Should a student’s final credential state what employment/training/participation as a volunteer be included to recognise what has been achieved through sport, music, drama etc…  Future employers are claiming that it is important for future employees to demonstrate their preparedness to be engaged.

  • Universities are recognising that students need to learn how to work through their failures. How will they learn strategies to deal with the inevitable setbacks that life will present them if they are set up for success all the time?

Whilst there is much to be considered, it is a very exciting future that lies ahead and we are looking forward to working with you to prepare your daughters for this future.

FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL (Pastoral Care/Administration)

Welcome to 2020

On behalf of the Pastoral Team I welcome to Catherine McAuley Year 7 students and their families. I also welcome any new students and their families to the Catherine McAuley Community. 


School Planner

Each student has received a School Planner that will support and build student wellbeing.

The School Planner highlights the following six elements of Wellbeing:

  • Positive Engagement: Building your connection to yourself and the present moment.

  • Meaning and Purpose: Having passion and a reason for doing what you do.

  • Skills and Achievement: Building your capabilities to strive, thrive and flourish.

  • Relationships and Optimism: Focusing optimistically and believing you and others matter.

  • Strength and Emotions: Being in charge of your emotions through your strengths.

  • Exercise and Health: Having a healthy body and healthy mind.

Each week the School Planner highlights a specific wellbeing element providing information and short reflection activities. The Year Coordinator and Homeroom Teachers will focus on some elements of this information throughout 2020.

The School Planner is a form of communication between parents/guardians, students and teachers. Parents are requested to check the School Planner regularly and sign it weekly. 

The School Planner provides information on school procedures, policies and structures.

  • Pages 3A - 5A Staff Directory
  • Pages 6A - 7A Parent Information specifically attendance procedures
  • Pages 13A Student Charter
  • Page 15A - 18A Expectations of Catherine McAuley Students
  • Page 19A - 23A Policies and procedures
  • Page 24A - 25A Merit System

Students are required to be at school no later than 8.30am and are dismissed at 3:10pm. The Student Planner pages 6A and 7A outline the Attendance procedures specifically: 

  • Lateness and Early Leave

  • Leave during the School Term

  • Absence Note -

  • SMS message when students are absent

The School Planner is an organisational tool for the student in relation to school, it is not to be used as a student’s social diary.  

General Information

Library hours:

  • Monday to Thursday 7:45am - 5:00pm

  • Friday until 4pm 7:45am - 4:00pm

  • Peer Tutoring is available after school in the library

For safety reasons: 

  • Students are collected from the Kiss and Drop zone via Gate 3 after 3:30pm

  • Gate 3 closes at 9am, entry is via Gate 2 or Darcy Road Pedestrian Gate 

  • Students enter the grounds via the pedestrian gates not car access gates

  • We ask parents to discuss with their daughter appropriate behaviour on public transport and walking to and from school. Our school is in a high pedestrian and traffic area. With the increased number of building works in the area there has been an increase in trucks using the area. Students have been instructed when using their phones to only use one earphone so they are aware of the noises around them.  

Public Transport

Many of our school buses are at capacity. If another bus is to be placed on the school route, students must have an activated Opal card and use the card when boarding and alighting the bus / train. Please ensure your daughter’s Opal Card is activated. If you have concerns regarding the bus / train services you need to contact the relevant company to lodge a complaint.   


We ask parents not to park in the properties surrounding the school including the Westmead Hospital Staff Accommodation adjacent to Gate 3 in Darcy Road. Also parents are taking up parking spots at Westmead Private Hospital and Westmead Dental Hospital stopping patients from using this area. These areas are now monitored by Parking Rangers and fines may apply.

Strategies for parents to help their secondary school aged students achieve their potential

 (from: Dr Prue Salter - The Study Skills Specialist) 

Work Environment: A logistical support is providing a quiet, open space with few distractions for working at home. Involve your student in creating this space. Workspace tools for effective learning include a desk, ergonomic chair, a noticeboard and good lighting, as well as a shelf or drawers for folders, reference books and non-essential work. Spending time to discuss options, alternatives and reasons for establishing a dedicated work area is valuable.  

Breakfast: Importantly students need to start the day with a nutritional breakfast, as this will increase energy, attention, concentration and memory. Nutritious snacks and lunch will enable the student to remain more focused throughout the day.

Routines: Helping your daughter to establish routines can add an element of calm to each day. Simple routines such as having the school bag packed and uniform ready before going to bed each night, can eliminate unnecessary angst in the morning. A useful addition to the evening schedule is to determine the next afternoon’s program: when homework and daily revision will be done around co-curricular activities, dinner etc. This can give a clear direction when your daughter comes home each day. Some students find that having regular times set aside for schoolwork each day helps them to develop a routine of working. Other students will need to make a plan each afternoon as their schedule changes each day.

Technology: Parents need to be the 'bad cop' when it comes to limiting computer games, social media interaction or other digital device activity. It is advisable that devices are not in bedrooms when students go to bed. However, rather than dictating the rule, parents could discuss the need for solid, sufficient sleep for the brain to re-wire neural pathways to consolidate the day’s learning. Lack of sleep can lead to reduced concentration and attention span, delayed response time, and decreased short-term memory. Guide for technology (including TV viewing) should be developed together if possible so there is agreement about the approach.

The summer of 2019-2020 has been unlike any other summer in living memory. While the drought continues, our country has been ravaged by destructive bushfires. Thirty-four people have lost their lives and many homes, farms and businesses have been destroyed by the bushfires. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) has reported that as many as one billion animals have perished. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) World News and Cable News Network (CNN) have extensively followed the breaking stories about the bushfire situation.

During January, I was overseas on pilgrimage and once people knew that our group were from Australia, they made inquiries about the situation and were genuinely concerned about the difficulties faced by so many people. Perhaps what has impressed people the most about this ongoing difficult situation is the generosity of so many people, whether it be through donations or service.

Lessons will need to be learnt, so that such a disaster is not repeated in the future. While some will rely on science, as a faith community we can be guided by the wisdom of Pope Francis. His encyclical, Laudato Si’ (On Care for Our Common Home) calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. As we begin 2020 we have much to reflect upon and the time to act is now. As people of Mercy, we know that prayer was an essential part of Venerable Catherine McAuley’s life and we can support our sisters and brothers in need through prayer. The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference have released the following prayer to support those affected by bushfires and drought:  

Eternal God, In wisdom and love you created our earth to sustain us and give us life. We turn to you now in faith, hope and love, asking you to look with favour on our fire-ravaged and drought-stricken land, on our starving and displaced animals, on our failing crops and burning farms, towns and forests. 

Strengthen, sustain and give new heart to our farmers and to all who are affected by drought; be with those who support them. Strengthen and comfort the victims of the fires, those who have lost family, friends, property and stock. Protect our volunteer firefighters and all members of essential services. 

In your loving providence, send abundant rain to quench the fires and to restore our parched earth. 

Father of all compassion, hear our prayer through Jesus Christ your Son, in whom the promise of new life has dawned, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, the Lord the giver of life: Renew your faithful people; Renew the face of the earth. 

Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Mary, help of Christians – Pray for us. 

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop – Pray for us.

Ms Genevieve Banks 
Religious Education Coordinator

Academic High Achievers Return to Celebrate Their Success

Former Catherine McAuley students from the Class of 2019 returned to school this week to celebrate their success in the Higher School Certificate.

A special 2019 High Achievers' Assembly was held to honour the students and to name Rebekah Nehme as the Dux for 2019. Rebekah achieved an overall ATAR of 99.35 and attained a band 6 result in Studies of Religion 1 unit, Chemistry, Mathematics, Mathematics Extension 1 and Physics. Rebekah has accepted an offer from UNSW to study a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) and has been offered a $5K scholarship for high achievers.

The Academic Assembly acknowledged the many successes of all the high achievers from the Class of 2019 with each student achieving an ATAR of 90 or above, placing them in the top 10% of the State, with our highest placed student ranked in the top 1%. Two students in this cohort were named as ‘Top Achievers’ meaning that they placed in the top 10 of their course and two students had their practical work nominated by the HSC examiners for various showcases. 

A number of students in the year knew that they had secured a place at university before they had sat any exams at all. They were selected because of their ability to juggle their academic workload at the same time as holding significant leadership roles in the school or wider community.

The school acknowledges the accomplishments of the whole Class of 2019 with 69 students named on the merit list meaning that they achieved a band 6 result in at least one of their courses. A significant number of the year group have been offered a place at university or TAFE and 57.9% of the results were in Bands 5 and 6 compared to the State at 39.7%.

Ms Katie Patterson, Director of Studies, reminded the students that success is no accident. “It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.  The success of the Class of 2019 is certainly a testament to this and on behalf of the community of Catherine McAuley Westmead, we acknowledge your hard work and commitment and we congratulate you on your success, which is measured in many ways, not just by the final mark you received”.

Class of 2019 High Achievers

Year 12 Visual Arts Students Attend Museum of Contemporary Art Exhibition

Year 12 Visual Arts students on Wednesday this week visited the Cornelia Parker exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Cornelia Parker is an acclaimed British artist known for her transformation of everyday objects into unexpected, haunting scenarios.

One such transformation that the students viewed is called ‘War Room’ and is a huge installation of the inside of a tent made from the red paper that is used to make the Remembrance Day poppies. The paper rolls are what is left when the shape of the poppies are cut out.

Year 11 Students Meet Irish Rugby 7s Team

Year 11 PDHPE students of Miss Brincat and Year 11 Fitness students of Ms Robson had the opportunity to meet the Irish Rugby 7s Team who were training on the onsite oval last week. The Irish Team were using the oval to train in preparation for the HSBC Rugby 7s Tournament held at Bankwest Stadium last weekend. 

PDHPE Practical Requirements

A requirement of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) and Physical Activity and Sports Studies (PASS) syllabus is for students to participate in practical physical activity lessons. For these lessons, students are required to bring their sport uniform to change into to participate in the lesson. Class teachers will inform students the days allocated as practical lessons. 

Please click on this link to read the PDHPE practical requirements.

If you have any questions or concerns about this please contact your daughter’s PDHPE teacher.

Year 10 Visual Arts Return to Order

Year 10 Visual Arts students are working towards designing a ceramic sculpture which will be completed this semester. The students have begun with their first unit of work ‘Return to Order’. Student Adhithi F., Year 10 has written the below reflection:

The Year 10 200 hour Visual Arts class worked on how to design and draw inspiration from organic forms. When we first watched the video of the Architect Barry Berkus, taking a scrunched up piece of paper, using it as a guide for designing a building, we were blown away! I immediately thought, how is it possible to translate a ball of paper into a building? So, we each took a paper, scrunched it up, then began to draw. This task challenged me to think and work beyond the conventional bounds of architecture and in doing so gave me a deeper insight into ways to extract ideas from our world. Instead of focusing on basic shapes, I am learning how to embrace the uniqueness of irregular shapes and incorporate them into my artworks.

Table Tennis Tables

The school now has two table tennis tables available for students to use. There is one table in Dobson Green and another in Mercy Square. Students are able to play table tennis before and after school and at recess and lunch. 

McAuley Girls Do Amazing Things

Did anyone hear recently on ABC Local Radio (702) former student Vanessa Moss who was the expert speaking to Richard Glover as part of Self Improvement Wednesday? Dr Vanessa Moss is now a CSIRO astronomer and is from our Class of 2004.

Vanessa is a postdoctoral researcher in astronomy, working at the University of Sydney as part of CAASTRO: ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics. Her research uses the innovative Australian SKA Pathfinder radio telescope to study hydrogen fuel in galaxies billions of light years away, and she specialises in visualising, analysing and interacting with large datasets using novel approaches…!!

McAuley girls certainly do do amazing things!


Year 7 Branches of Science

Currently Year 7 students are participating in an activity in their Science classes to introduce them to science and all the different branches it has to offer such as biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, etc.

A number of stations relating to the different branches are set up around the laboratory and students need to identify which branch each station belongs to. The activity gives the students the opportunity to realise the diversity of science and all the different areas they have the opportunity to study. 

Remember to check the School Facebook Page regularly for more Around the Classrooms each week and for additional photos of Year 7 students in Miss Raja’s Science class.

The library team is looking forward to helping your daughters achieve their personal best this year and as assessment tasks inevitably begin rolling out we are asking parents to encourage their daughters to visit the library if they need assistance. 

Signs your daughter needs to visit the school library:

  1. They feel overwhelmed by research tasks.
  2. They are finding it difficult to locate age appropriate resources when researching for assessment tasks.
  3. They struggle to distinguish between accurate and biased sources of information.
  4. They require assistance to reference their work appropriately.
