Shared Vision

'We are a Catholic Learning Community of collaborative partners, called to serve one another by being committed to and accountable for quality learning by all, with Jesus as our inspiration'

Journey Towards Our Shared Vision


We are committing to continually improving our schools, creating environments where everyone interacts and innovation and improvement are built into our daily activities; where we, as a Catholic Learning Community, can come together to reflect on our best practices, assess our effectiveness and make decisions about what we need to do to become even more effective; where we are all engaged in a common purpose; and where we rely on each other to reach agreed upon goals that we could not achieve independently.
