Catholic Identity and Mission

Catholic schools are called to be real and living expressions of the church’s pastoral mission in the world. Our Mission is to be centres of ‘the New Evangelisation’ and to proclaim and give witness to Jesus Christ. Catholic schools nurture students in their lifelong journey in faith and help them develop as mature people empowered to shape and enrich the world by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives.

Catholic schools support students and their families in connecting with Catholic traditions and accessing the richness of our shared faith and spiritual heritage. Through quality Religious Education, rich experiences of prayer and celebration, engagement in social action and justice, students are supported in developing their relationship with God and responding to the experience and action of God in their own lives.

Developing your faith is a lifelong process. Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children and the family is generally the first place where children come to Christian faith. Catholic Schools provide Religious Education to nourish and develop the faith of students in partnership with the family, parish and local community.
