The Enrolment process for Foundation Year students has commenced for the western cluster of schools in the Diocese of Sale. It is a difficult time for parents as they wish to make the right decision about schooling for their child.
As parents consider their options and choosing a school for many and varied reasons, why should they consider a Catholic School?
Our faith in Jesus Christ is why Catholic schools exist and we are challenged to foster a distinctive culture, educational vision and practice. As our school Statement of Beliefs and Values states: ‘The membership of the school community is diverse. Some are conscious and active members of their Catholic community, some belong actively to other Christian traditions or religious faiths. Some are not explicitly Christian, but nevertheless have sought enrolment for their children in a Catholic school. Many students come from households, in which the adults belong to different churches, or one partner is intentionally Christian and the other is not. A large number of children and parents are baptised Catholic who may not participate consciously in a community of faith or deliberately attend to the religious dimension of their lives. The school is challenged to find appropriate ways to engage all members of its community in conversation about Christian identity.”
We are committed to developing our students into strong individuals academically, socially, physically and spiritually in a nurturing environment guided by faith and knowledge. Each student has strengths, interests and talents that need to be encouraged and developed so they are able to make a positive contribution to the world in which they live. Optimal learning takes place where the dignity, safety and uniqueness of each student is valued. Our teachers provide personalised learning experiences for our students to achieve their personal best.
Promoting student wellbeing through building self confidence, self respect and respect for others, self discipline and resilience prepares students to be good stewards of God’s creation and prepares them for active participation in their faith community and civic community.
We share in the education of your children and foster a partnership with parents and guardians to support their child’s education. A student’s wellbeing is enhanced when the gap between home and school is minimal and all parties communicate, respect and cooperate with each other. We welcome parents and guardians to join with us on our journey of educating your children.
Our dedicated Parents Retreat is a space for parents to gather for social and school purposes. This area aims to enhance the welcoming culture of our school and parents and friends get to know each other and develop lasting friendships.
We believe students experience a unique faith-filled, nurturing environment in a Catholic school where there is a focus on the skills needed for the contemporary world today, tomorrow and well into the future.
