Catholic Education South Australia’s Living, Learning, Leading framework affirms that every learner is and will be a leader for the world God desires.

At McAuley, we recognise leadership as the leading of ourselves and others to have an impact on the community.

‘We should be shining lamps, giving light to all around us’, Catherine McAuley.

Acknowledging that skills and capabilities mean something different for all of us and your child.  Leadership opportunities begin in Year 3 with the opportunity to be a ‘Buddy’ to a Reception learner mentoring in shared experiences.

In Year 5, learners can volunteer to be a Mini Vinnies leader supporting our local chapter of St Vincent de Paul.  Some learners continue this leadership into Year 6.

Leadership opportunities in Year 6 offer the diversity of six options: 

  • School
  • Mercy
  • Eco
  • Sport
  • The Arts
  • Mini Vinnies

In term four of Year 5, learners are encouraged to consider a leadership role and supported by their Pastoral Care Educator and Specialist Educators, begin their application.

We are proud to introduce you to our 2024 Year 6 Leaders.
