Our aim is to provide children, from all abilities and backgrounds, with the best possible opportunities for success. We aspire for all students to succeed through excellent teaching, uncompromising standards of behaviour and persistent unconditional care. Through the inspiration we find in the words and example of our three patrons, St Margaret Ward, Blessed John Henry Newman and St John Baptiste De La Salle we aspire to provide an education that produces responsible, compassionate, tolerant, courageous, and non-judgmental young people who live their lives with integrity.
As an Associate Lasallian school, the five core values of a Lasallian education are central to us; Faith in the Presence of God, Respect for all persons, Quality education, Inclusive community and Concern for the poor and social justice. Inspired by these words of John Baptiste De la Salle; ‘Teaching minds, touching hearts, transforming lives’, we have developed a challenging knowledge centered academic ‘Teaching minds’ curriculum and a thorough ‘Touching Hearts’ curriculum that supports the holist formation of each child in order to transform lives. Our mission therefore, is to educate their mind and heart and deliver an education for all our young people which will provide them with a broad range of choices and opportunities in the future. We proudly celebrate the high standards our students achieve in examination results, in the arts and in sport.
