Our School Crest

The School Crest represents what Our McAuley Way stands for.

The Mercy cross is at the centre. Our faith in the Mercy tradition honours the legacy and vision of Catherine McAuley and her unwavering commitment to faith and confidence, courage, generosity and humanity. 

The blue crescents represent waves that acknowledge the school’s coastal location and connection to the environment.

  • Mercy Cross – Faith - a place to grow
  • Educational Excellence - a place to achieve
  • Ecology - a place to discover
  • Community - a place to connect


Please see below the various design components which make up the McAuley Community School Crest. 


McAuley Community School’s commitment to the environment and to ecological awareness is evident in the Green Building Council Australia’s award of its 6-Star Green Star Rating for the school’s design.  At the time of the school’s opening, it is in the only primary school in Australia to receive the 6-Star rating.

‘If the love of God truly reigns in our heart it will show itself on the exterior’
