Our College

Catherine McAuley College has a proud tradition of Catholic education dating back to 1876 when Sister Aloysius Martyn and the Sisters of Mercy first arrived in Bendigo. For over 140 years, the Sisters of Mercy have given extraordinary service to the Bendigo community. Inspired by their foundress, Catherine McAuley, the Sisters have educated thousands of children and worked tirelessly wherever their help was needed.

Catherine McAuley College would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our College resides. As a Mercy Community we are committed to building close bonds with the Jaara people and to continue to learn and support the stewardship and legacy of their culture and country. We pay our respects to the elders past, present and future.
