Key entitlements of Catholic Learners

All members of a Catholic school community are learners who:


  • honour the sacred dignity of each person, believing that everyone can be successful and supported to see their lives as being shaped by the God who is at work in all of creation
  • search for truth, continuously critiquing, questioning, inquiring, imagining and re-imagining themselves and their world in an ongoing engagement with Catholic beliefs and practices
  • embrace difference and diversity as the context for dialogue, engagement and a deeper understanding of self, others and God
  • build a culture of learning together through collaboration, partnerships and life-giving relationships which enable all to flourish
  • engage with the deep questions of life, constantly opening up spaces of meaning which engage Catholic faith with what matters most in the minds and hearts of the students
  • honour equitable access and opportunity for all, with a particular commitment to those most in need
  • commit to achieving the highest standards possible based on reflective practice, using data, research and evidence to ensure progress and growth in learning
  • make a difference in the world, inspired by the Gospel and led by the Holy Spirit to grow in virtue and act for justice and the common good.

”Young people call us to renewed and expansive hope, for they represent new directions for humanity and open us up to the future.” (Pope Francis 2013)
