Bishop’s Message

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Lismore are committed to offering families a quality education that provides opportunities for students to come to know the depth of God’s merciful love which is offered to each of us individually. Our Catholic schools seek to provide students with an education that inspires them to become good citizens within Australian society who live out their lives with meaningful purpose, compassion for others and care for creation.

Catholic education is unique in that we hold a deep commitment to the development of the whole person. As a system of schools, we see the young person before us as a unique and irreplaceable child of God and the enrichment of not only their intellect, but also their sense of wellbeing and spirituality as our mission. We also embrace  the belief that Catholic education is a ministry of love where we seek the best for each of the students in our care by leading them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Our partnership with the whole family is a vital and defining aspect of our educational mission. We recognise families as the first and foremost educators of their children and seek new and vibrant ways of working together for the good of the child.

It is my sincere hope that you will find in the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Lismore a community where your child will be known, respected and cared for and one which will provide them with an education that will lead them to experiencing life in all its fullness.
