Community

We are a supportive community that follows the Gospel message of ‘Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13: 34-35). Our community is based on a deep respect of the uniqueness and diversity found within each person, on quality relationships and a deep sense of belonging.

Compassion

Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” It is the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering.  Compassion brings together our image of God, what God is like and how we are to live.

Evangelisation

We spread the good news of the Gospel, that God loves us no matter what, through our actions as well as our words.  As Pope Francis explains “all Christians … are called to show concern for the building of a better world.”

Holistic Approach

We nurture all aspects of personal development not just academic success. Our holistic approach to education in our school enables all of us to develop to our full potential – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. We recognise that such development becomes a lifelong journey responding to Christ’s call to live life to the full.

Marian Identity

Mary  listened to the word of God throughout her life and accepted and did God's will in times of joy and in times of sorrow. She was a strong woman who cared about others. We model ourselves on how Mary lived, serving God and his plan of salvation. As the Mother of God, she inspires us to be people of faith, service, humility, love and dignity.

 

Openness/Respect for Diversity

We recognise that each individual is known and loved by God therefore we see diversity as strength and openness as a living principle. The goal of diversity is to accept people for their differences. It requires complete openness to different nationalities, cultures, religions, ages, genders, abilities, sexual orientations and backgrounds, lifestyles and much more. 

 
 

Service

The commitment to service draws on the belief that service nurtures and strengthens as a means of grace in our lives. We are committed to service in the spirit of the Gospel message of ‘Love thy neighbour’ (Matthew 22:39). Service forms part of the core curriculum and our students are inspired by the example of Jesus to be servant leaders both in school and in the wider community.

 

Universaility

Universality comes from the word universal, meaning all inclusive, Catholic, entire, unlimited and unrestricted. Our Society is Universal. Our school is Universal. Many nationalities and cultures joining together for a common purpose. Each of us have our own part to play.  Although as individuals, we are single drops in a large ocean, without this single drop, it would be a very different ocean.
