Enrolment Interviews

Interviews for 2023 and beyond will begin next year.

These meetings provide us with an opportunity to discuss your application in person and meet your son or daughter to discover more about them as a learner. It is also a wonderful opportunity for you to learn more about McAuley Community School as a place to thrive.

Offers of Enrolment

Following the enrolment interview and once all applications have been considered, letters of offer will be sent to families. If we are not able to offer your child a place at McAuley Community School, you will receive a letter inviting you to remain on our waitlist until we are able to make subsequent offers or enrolments are finalised.
