Education has been at the core of the Catholic Church since the time of Jesus. Calling ourselves a Catholic College brings tremendous joys but also great responsibilities. We stand on the shoulders of those people of faith who have gone before us and we contribute to a living faith now. Fundamentally Catholic Education exists to pass on the faith and traditions of the Church to the students in its care.

The task of the Catholic school is “fundamentally a synthesis of culture and faith, and a synthesis of faith and life: the first is reached by integrating all different aspects of human knowledge through the subjects taught, in the light of the Gospel; the second in the growth of the virtues characteristic of the Christian. “ (Congregation for Catholic Education The Catholic School, 1977)

The Catholic School is called to build on the religious formation of the home and the parish. It provides opportunities for children to explore different elements of the Christian message with their peers, at a level appropriate to their age. The Catholic school can nurture experiences of worship and prayer, help young people explore the intellectual dimension of their faith, and provide access to opportunities for service to others through extra-curricular activities. The Catholic school can be an intense experience of a vibrant Christian community that invites young people to a deeper commitment to their faith.
