We seek to develop in our students a personal and active faith relationship with Jesus Christ, inspired by the example of St Francis and our Franciscan heritage.
The College offers rich and engaging experiences to open our young women to the presence of Jesus in their lives, through the Religious Education curriculum, liturgies and Refection Days.
At every Year Level, our students have opportunities to support and participate in social justice action. This is integrated in the Religious Education curriculum through Years 7 to 12 and is also part of co-curricular activities.
We encourage and support student-led initiatives and campaigns. Each Year Level has a social justice focus, for which students take local and global action to improve the lives of others in meaningful ways.
2018 College Theme
Who are you, God and who am I?’ St Francis of Assisi
The first saying is about being a seeker. A seeker after truth – truth about God and our relationship with God. Maybe even a wonder at why God would seek to be in relationship with we humans. It also includes a sense of coming to know ourselves in all our giftedness and shortcomings.
Faith In Action
