Principles

In the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn, the Catholic Education Commission is responsible to the Archbishop for developing, monitoring and evaluating education policies for Catholic System schools.

 

The Archdiocesan Catholic school system has a particular responsibility to welcome, accept and support those who are poor, marginalised and in most need. Our conviction is that no student will be refused enrolment or be disadvantaged because of an inability on the part of parents/guardians to meet financial requirements.

 

Catholic System Schools established and maintained by the Archdiocese strive to be authentically Catholic and faithful to the Church, its traditions and teachings.

 

The Catholic school community strives for strong partnerships with the parishes it serves. Those who choose a Catholic school for their children do so on the understanding that they respect and agree to support the Catholic identity of the school and acknowledge the importance of religious education for their children.

 

The Catholic System School is open to all who are willing to commit to support the philosophy, values and aims of Catholic schooling.
