Our Vision Statement

Respectful young men who are inspired, life-long learners and active participants in their community.


Our Touchstones
Liberating Education    

We open hearts and minds, through quality teaching and learning experiences, so that through critical reflection and engagement each person is hope-filled and free to build a better world for all. 

Gospel Spirituality       

We invite people into the story of Jesus and strive to make his message of compassion, justice and peace a living reality within our community.

Inclusive Community 

Our community is accepting and welcoming, fostering right relationships and committed to the common good.

Justice & Solidarity    

We are committed to justice and peace for all, grounded in a spirituality of action and reflection that calls us to stand in solidarity with those who are marginalised and the earth itself.
