Living life to the full – from John 10:10 ‘I have come that you may have life and have it to the full’
Becoming the person you are called to be.
Catholic education, is not just about ideas, or courses or even subjects or syllabi or exam results, important as they all are, but, rather, it is about people – conscious that all are made in the image and likeness of God. The Catholic school must embody respect. Respect for each individual student with their own distinctive talents and characteristics; respect for others, also made in the image and likeness of Christ. The Catholic school must also embody valuable lessons on social responsibility, social justice and social obligations.
We are very proud of all of our Vincentian schools across the country. The Vincentian ethos they all live out aspires to instill hearts for those less fortunate than many of ourselves, with a strong emphasis on social justice.
