A New School Is Opening In The Western Suburbs

A new school is set to open at Hove in 2 years time.

McAuley Community School will cater for up to 530 students from Reception to Year 6 and will include specialist STEM and arts facilities, along with a research and innovations centre.

It will be co-located with a Catholic Early Learning Centre for up to 90 kids aged 3 to 5.

The $22 million project will be built on the old Marymount College site and will replace St Teresa's School in Brighton from 2020.

Marymount amalgamated with Sacred Heart College at the start of this year.

Catholic Education South Australia Director Dr Neil McGoran says "McAuley Community School and the planned Catholic early learning centre are part of our commitment to offer a Catholic Education pathway from early years through to Year 12".

"Together with our existing primary schools and colleges in south west Adelaide, we are building an even stronger focus on student learning and quality teaching" he said. 

Project Architect Kon Michaels says "the building design will be flexible to enable spaces to be adapted easily and used in a range of ways as needs change during the day".

"The entire site will be open and inviting" he said.

Consultation will continue with local families, the parish and wider community in the months ahead.
