Catholic schools provide a holistic educational experience for families seeking a Catholic education.  They provide a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment focused on your child’s wellbeing, achievement, challenge, creativity and enjoyment.

A growing number of parents are choosing a Catholic education for their child, which reflects the importance families place on choosing a Catholic school to support their child’s learning, pastoral care and personal development.

Catholic school leaders and teachers are committed to an education that integrates and celebrates faith, learning and life. They provide religious education and opportunities for faith development in communities where prayer and sacramental celebrations are integral to life. Students are encouraged to engage in civic and public life, involving community service and working for social justice.

Catholic schools encourage parents/carers/guardians, as a child’s first educators, to become involved in their child’s learning and engaged in school life. Working together in partnership, schools and families create an effective learning environment and a climate of mutual respect. This ensures timely communication and enables open discussion.

More information on enrolment procedures for Catholic schools in your area are available through the Catholic education proprietors in each diocese.
