Learning Neighbourhoods

Learning spaces at McAuley are known as Learning Neighbourhoods.

In 2024, Learning Neighbourhoods are based on the following groupings - Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. 

Learners have a designated Pastoral Care Educator within their Learning Neighbourhood. This Educator is the primary contact for communication about matters relating to your child.

Learners work with their Pastoral Care Educator for English, Maths and other lessons. During Inquiry and Investigations, learners may work in year level groups. They attend Specialist Arts, PE, Music and Language sessions in their Pastoral Care Groups.

Learning Neighbourhoods assist educators to collaboratively plan, implement learning programs and explicitly teach skills and concepts to the whole class, as well as in groups, according to their learning needs.
