Catholic Education

Nurturing Communities of Faith, Service, Prayer and Worship

In Catholic Schools the person and message of Christ find expression in: 


  • The development of each person’s full potential in a climate of joy, freedom, respect, challenge, co-operation and celebration;             

  • The enrichment of pupil life – intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional;

  • The promotion of a spirit of charity, social justice, global awareness and concern for others leading to practical outreach and partnerships;             

  • A culture of tolerance where people of diverse identities are recognised, welcomed, respected and cherished;

  • Listening, mutual understanding, trust, reconciliation, healing and peace;

  • The preparation of pupils to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives which will contribute to the Common Good.
