Learning brings hope.

A hope that is based on the experience of God’s love and care for all.

Pope Francis stated recently that through Catholic education we celebrate all the opportunities which enable young people to embrace the hope of a better world with greater possibilities.

In today’s globalised environment, young people must be versatile learners, who develop not only new knowledge and skills, but also new literacies, dispositions and cultural awareness.

Learning within this context, and in dialogue with the Catholic tradition, offers all of us opportunities; not only to understand others, but ourselves, our identity and our faith more deeply.

At the very heart of each Catholic school is a desire for the full flourishing of each student, across religious, physical, cognitive, emotional and social domains. Here we support students to grow in virtue and to embrace a view of themselves and the world that leads to peace, justice, and the prospering of the whole of creation. It is a journey that is enlightened by faith, animated by love and leading to hope.

The capacity to navigate the current landscape – to learn together, to work from evidence, to animate and support learners, and to lead in faith and transformation – presents us with great opportunities and exhilarating challenges.

Catholic educators are called to meet these opportunities and challenges with courage and with faith, hope and love for their students.
