Catholic Education

The purpose of a Catholic school is to assist parents in providing an education for their children, which is inspired by the Gospel. A Catholic school is essentially a community of faith, in which:

  • The values of the Gospel influence the manner in which the school is managed as well as the relationships among teachers and between teachers and their pupils
  • Religious education is taught with the same professionalism as would be expected for any other subject and resourced accordingly
  • Children of other faiths and none are welcomed on a basis of equality and included fully in the life of the school community, with absolute respect for their own religious faith, but without compromising the religious ethos of the school
  • Ppersonal and liturgical prayer are encouraged and facilitated.
  • Communications with parents and messages on social media make reference from time to time to the faith dimension of the school, just as they do to other activities
