Christus Pastor Meus – Christ is my Shepherd
The College motto, Christ is My Shepherd, reflects a strong emphasis on pastoral care. It is evident in feedback from students and parents that students feel happy and safe.
Christus – In a Catholic School, the message of Christ is central and the foundation of Catholic Education.
Pastor – Qualities such as love, trust, strength, security, compassion, friendship, warmth and acceptance are the type of qualities we aim to instil in our students.
Meus – A focus on the good that is in each and every one of us which means we must be committed to the needs and care of each individual all of the time.
Students Reaching their Greatest Potential
We recognize that each child is unique and we are committed to nurturing the personal excellence of each and every learner, regardless of their learning ability. The College always maintains a focus on providing the best support for the intellectual development of every learner so each has the best possible chance to excel personally.
Therefore, our vision is to help our students reach their greatest potential.
We value diversity and the challenge to meet every child where they are at in their spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual development. We take a holistic approach to the development of our students, combining excellence in teaching and learning with strong pastoral care in a learning environment that is faithful to a Catholic heritage. We foster in our young people the desire to know more, see more and be more, in line with our Catholic values. Our College provides opportunities for students to learn and grow in a variety of settings so that they may become active and productive participants in society. We wish for our students to live faith-filled and Christ-centred lives with compassion for others and a sense of social justice based on real-world learning. We nurture our students to show mercy to others, promote justice and serve those in need as a demonstration of their Christian faith. Our contemporary Catholic environment is one that recognises the signs of the times.
Our students are encouraged to seek Christ in their personal and communal lives, to deepen their knowledge of the Catholic tradition, to grow in their faith and to seek opportunities to put their faith into action.
