All girls are part of our faith community and are shown how to live lives in relationship with God that embody the Gospel values. College life is filled with spiritual and faith development opportunities including liturgical celebrations, class prayer, reflection times and retreats. The College is supported in nurturing our faith community by the Carmelite community from Mt Carmel Parish.
Girls are encouraged to be active members of service groups and partake in justice activities such as St Vincent de Paul Society, Mary Ward International and Caritas. The College also conducts immersion experiences to developing communities locally, nationally and internationally.
As a Catholic school what makes us distinctive is the Catholic curriculum that we teach. The Religion classrooms promote in students religious literacy and understanding. However, all faculties teach Catholic Social Teachings and values throughout the curriculum across year levels. Girls are taught to be critical thinkers and to ask questions about the values that can be seen in the world and then are challenged to be change agents when necessary. This is to give them the capacity to respond to the demands of the world with courage and authenticity and from a Gospel worldview.
