A Message from the Director

From a small lay school in 1860 in South Grafton, Catholic Schools across the Diocese of Lismore have grown to more than 15,000 students being cared for by over 2,500 staff in 46 Catholic Schools.

Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Lismore are significant contributors to the broader evangelising mission of the Bishop of Lismore and the Catholic Church. Pope Francis’ visible commitment to Christ’s humility, love and compassion are well known, as are his joy and tenderness. We take courage from, and aspire to follow his example as we relate to our young people and we commit ourselves to offer student focused, Christ centred, learning opportunities of our students so that they will experience the fullness of life.

Families are the first and principal educators of their children. Our teachers and support staff work with families to support students to recognise, achieve and then surpass their potential, to believe in themselves and to have pride in their own achievements and abilities.

As Director, I welcome you and invite you to take time to explore, learn and discover more about the work of our schools. Should you require any further assistance or have any questions about Catholic education in the Diocese of Lismore, please do not hesitate to call or contact any of our schools directly.

With best wishes

Dr Sally Towns
