Principal Mary Refalo

“May God bless and protect you and make you the instrument of his glory”. Catherine McAuley

Catherine McAuley College is a school founded in the Mercy tradition and these words of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, inspire us as educators to form our students both spiritually and academically.

McAuley girls are nurtured to be courageous young women who act compassionately to build community and who are alive with the mercy and justice of God. We are dedicated to fostering a commitment to excellence and lifelong learning in our students.

Throughout their time with us we support and challenge our students to be open to new ideas and have the ability to make wise choices, as well as build a life that will be centred on contemplation and action, prayer and service.

As learners McAuley girls are called to think critically and creatively and strive for excellence in all that they do.

As the principal of Catherine McAuley College I am excited and honoured to be part of such a dynamic community here at Westmead. I look forward to meeting our families and working alongside you to provide the best educational opportunities for your daughter.

Ms Mary Refalo
