In parallel with the promotion of religious literacy, the College strives to foster the development of faith. In keeping with our College motto of “Prayer, Care and Learning”, students participate in regular prayer opportunities in House Groups each morning, at the start of classes and as part of our regular College Assemblies. A diverse group of students are engaged in the preparation for masses both within the College and as part of the Sunday evening Parish masses.Additionally, students assist with various celebrations, including liturgies for ANZAC Day, Siena Day and Catholic Education Week.The school community also participates in community service activities such as fund-raising for Caritas, the Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, the 40 Hour Famine, Surfing for the Disabled and others, demonstrating faith-in-action through service to others.
Throughout the year a variety of activities, considered a cornerstone of faith education are offered. These include Retreats for Years 7,8, 9, 10 and 12 and a Leadership Convention for Year 11s.
The Guidelines for the Religious Life of the School, published in 2008, are a further source document to help us orient the school towards the faith formation of students.
