Our school spirit

Respect | kindness | compassion

We welcome both Catholic and non-Catholic families who share our values. The spirit of the school is founded on the dedicated work of the Sisters of Mercy and the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. They have created a wonderful legacy for future generations.

Our values-focussed approach to education brings the Catholic faith to life by showing children ways to live every day. Students undertake the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation through St Columba Parish.
