Your Child's Learning

Each Catholic secondary school aims to give your young person a foundation of faith, values, knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for lifelong learning.

Assessing and Reporting Your Child's Progress

Teachers continually observe and assess your child's learning in cass. This assessment assists the teacher to fine-tune teaching strategies suitable for your individual child.

Learning Pathways for Your Child

Our secondary schools offer direct support and advice from specialist careers teachers about possible pathways for your child.

Diverse Learning Needs

Our schools work in collaboration with specialised organisations in developing educational programs for students with diverse needs which are personalised to meet the needs of the individual student.

Your child's Health, Wellbeing and Safety

Children thrive in schools when they feel happy, confident and secure. Your child's wellbeing is our first priority. Our school communities offer a wide range of student wellbeing supports as well as student wellbeing leaders.
