Our strategic intent

Enriching the lives of our students through education grounded in excellence, inclusivity and Catholic tradition.


Our Purpose

Catholic education is a work of love, for the full human development of students, grounded in the person of Jesus Christ and at the service of society. All staff share in the evangelising mission of the Church as they work to bring about a synthesis of faith, life and culture in their communities.

The system of schools in the Diocese of Parramatta is a work of the Church, under the leadership of our Bishop and in collaboration with priests, parents, students and staff, to realise the mission of bringing the person of Jesus Christ into the lives of the young people in our care and their families.
